Friday Giveaway!

Hello friends
Fridays are nice days and even nicer with a chance to win!
This week I've been scurrying in my boxes and I've discovered
a pre-loved set of Gold Elements!

These beautiful dies not only cut, emboss, stencil but also deboss.
This giveaway set has been used for demonstration so not in its original packaging
but still a wonderful addition to your collection.
I particularly like using the corner die for envelopes.
Just leave a comment on this blog post and a winner will be picked out next week.

The charity event for 20 July is coming together, here is a peek
at one lot of the donated raffle prizes - inside those boxes is tons of sticky goodies!
A few other companies have come on board and donating prizes including PaperMill Direct!
In case you missed the blog post about the raffle I'm reposting the PayPal buttons.

Raffle Ticket x 1 - £1

Raffle Tickets x 6 - £5
Once you purchase a ticket you will receive an email with an image of your allocated raffle tickets.

Another batch of Charity Kits went out yesterday, I am very grateful to my family
stepping in and assisting with these while I've been with Elliott, attending appointments etc.
Although we did take a little wander to the post box to help post some kits off ....
I love that he smiles despite everything! 

Have a wonderful weekend and take care friends.
Enjoy that sunshine we have been promised!

Mrs B said...

Hi Christine. It's great that so many companys etc. are donating prizes. It is such a good cause, but I do think that Elliots cheeky smile does most of the persuading, lol. Good to see and hear that he keeps smiling, staying positive is so important. Keep it up Elliot. Hope you all get to enjoy the sunshine. Take care.

Lacelady said...

Oooh Christine, I'd love to go into the draw just in case Bella pulls my name out, I think that die set is 'to die for'!

Brilliant to see that Elliott can still smile in spite of everything, and managed to help out with the posting. I do hope 'they' can get him on the road to recovery soon.

Craftin Suzie (Susan Flynn) said...

Hi Christine lovely picture of Elliot! Just a thought but have you thought of having the raffle as a sticky post at the top of your blog, that way more people may see it? Have a fabulous weekend, hugs to all Susan x

Chris said...

Way to go Elliott, he is such an inspiration, as are you Christine, he puts a lot of us to shame when we moan and groan about trivial things that happen in our lives. When I see him smiling like that it makes me realise how lucky my family and I are. Good luck with the charity event.
Love Chris X

lydia jordan said...

Morning Christine,
Elliot is amazing, a lovely smile even though he has been through so much.
It's a good job that you have a second in command now with Mitchell, he must be a great help.

Elliott looks so well & cheerful, such a brave young man. Hope all goes well with the charity event, I may have tried to come to Kent but it is my eldest daughter's 40th on that day, that makes me feel really old. I'm just waiting on my kit to arrive any day now. Good luck to all for the giveaway.
