Live Well....

Hello friends
Today a black and white card with a touch of red.
I created this card for Spellbinders® and it has just appeared in their Idea Gallery here.
It truly shows how stencilling through the die is effective.
As promised today is the day that I can announce the winner of 
last Friday's giveaway.
The Graduated Dots A4 M-Bossabilities Folder
Bella at work...
Not quite a fully body shot as she is super scruffy right now!
 Here is the winning slip of paper - slightly soggy around the edges!
Congratulations Jackie Elvy
please drop me an email with your address and your prize will be winging its way to you.

Update on kits...
Thank you to those who have left comments and sent emails
saying how much you like them (I'm so pleased!)  A further batch of kits is due to be 
sent out so if yours hasn't arrived yet I promise it is on its way - 
I ran out of special 'do not bend' envelopes and they've just arrived.  
Once you've made your kit I would be delighted if you could send a photo - 
I would like to create a board of images to display at the charity event.  

Ita asked yesterday if I would explain a little more about the Artisan X-Plorer -
back in March I dedicated a blog post to this lovely die-cutting wonder.
You can read all about it here.  Lots of pictures and details.

Update on Elliott - this week has been waiting again for the correct medication, we 
are trying not to get too frustrated and stay fully distracted by chocolate! 

Take care friends.

Hi Christine my kit arrived yesterday, just in time I am away on holiday this morning. Might just be able to sneak it in my case, we are flying and there is not much room for craft stuff. Love the idea of chocolate taking the place of pills, but I hope it will not go on for too much longer and Elliot gets sorted soon. Love and best wishes Valerie

Morning Christine, Congratulations to Jackie, you lucky lady.
Your card is beautiful and I agree that stencilling through the dies really is effective.
I got my kit in the post yesterday, thank you so much, can't wait to play.
So frustrating that they haven't managed to get Elliott's medication right yet, one day, in the not too distant future, you will all look back on this part of your life as a distant memory. Here's hoping and prayers for a speedy recovery for Elliott. Huge hugs to you all.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
