Look what has arrived!!

Hello friends
A huge parcel arrived yesterday from Spellbinders® enclosing raffle prizes!!   
TWO Artisan X-PlorerMachines! And.....
all these lovely dies too!  
You will recognise the dies as the ones being used in the Charity Kit - 
all the kit details are here.

And, just in case you've managed to escape the blog posts detailing raffle tickets for sale
you can find those details here.  
The prizes are really stacking up, I'm overwhelmed by the generosity - 
it is going to be craft raffle heaven!
Remember if you buy a kit via my blog there is a raffle ticket inside but please feel
free to purchase more tickets if you wish...(all in a good cause!)

Yesterday marked the start of something very special - the Shape It Up Sneak Peek and Giveaway.
It is your chance to see some of the new release dies and be in with a chance to win.
Click on the image below for the details.
Other news:  thank you for all your kind comments regarding Elliott's medication.
The injections have now started and I'm afraid to say he finds them very painful.
I feel terrible as I am the one that administers them so lots of hugs and kisses afterwards!

Now, about time I announced the winner of last Friday's giveaway -
this week is flying by!  

I asked Elliott to pick out a winner and he used his whizzy phone to generate 
a number.  The prize of Gold Elements goes to....


Please drop me an email with your address details
and I will send Mitchell straight to the Post Office with them! 

Take care friends - have a wonderful weekend.

It must be horrible, I hope it becomes more bearable for you both.

So sorry for Elliott, hopefully it will get better with time. I have to administer insulin injections to my dog twice a day and mostly it's fine but sometimes it just catches her wrong and I feel awful, but I know it keeps her well. Fab prizes given by Spellbinders, how generous, would love to win something from them. Lastly, well done to SuzyD.

What an exciting post albeit tinged with a bit of sadness. My heart goes out to Elliott, I have heard these injections can be bad news, but just think of all the good they're doing. Definitely going to buy some more raffle tickets to win such a tremendous prize. A huge thank you to both you and Spellbinders for thinking of other people. xxMargaretxx

Oh my heart goes out to Elliott - and you Christine (no mother likes to inflict pain on their offspring) I hope you both manage to cope. Be brave.

Oh dear. Hope the injections get easier for you both. Keep well. Great news on the raffle prizes. Have a wonderful day on the 20th.

CardsofJoy said...

Bless you both Christine, no injections are pleasant but these sound awful. I sympathise as I have a 9 year old granddaughter who is on insulin twice a day since she was 6 when she started with diabetes, although they are not always painful, just ocassionally, a necessary evil for Elliot!! He's a brave and lovely lad.

hazel young said...

Oh wow that's great more raffle prizes. Glad Elliott has finally got his medication even though it does hurt at present it is all for the greater good. xx hazel

Ita O'Byrne O'Keeffe said...

Hello Christine, so sorry to hear that the injections are not pleasant for Elliott. It can't be much fun for you either, having to administer them. Fingers crossed, things will get a bit easier for you both.
WOW, haven't Spellbinders done you proud with raffle prizes. A big thank you to them. Hopefully these donations should boost your raffle ticket sales.
Have a good weekend, all three of you.
