November Charity Kit Winner!

Hello friends

Back today with nice news... announcing the lucky number 
for the November Charity Add-On Kit.
If you ordered a kit it is time to check those numbers :)

The winning ticket is......


If you are the lucky owner it is time to zip over to Waltzing Mouse Stamps 
and select six stamp sets of your choice (just make sure they are in stock).


Once you have chosen your six, pop the details on an email to me
christine.emberson@blueyonder.co.uk
don't forget to include your address and I will ask the very kind Claire at
Waltzing Mouse to send the stamps directly to you.

Claire has been amazingly generous in supporting the Charity Kits,
she has given away stamps three months in a row!

December kits are nearly finished (thank you Mum!) 
Details will be posted here very soon.  The winning ticket prize for December
will be a lovely combo of dies, stamps and pretty paper!

The 'something crafty' today is a project I have shared before...
a French inspired plaque featuring Keepsake Envelopes from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™ 
The backing is a piece of cardboard box! Hessian-look paper, tickets, butterflies
and glitter encrusted 3D Foam Hearts.
I was thrilled to discover that Scrapbook Adhesives have used my project on their new packaging!
The envelopes really are useful for holding sentimental objects like tickets,
buttons, photos, babies teeth(!) and more.
By the way if you like my little brass stand, they are available here.
Sorry out of stock now but more on their way! :)

Other news: the radiotherapy is still proceeding well,  Elliott is doing brilliantly
although I think the tiredness is beginning to kick in a little.
I'm rather looking forward to a weekend of not driving around the M25!

Take care friends - enjoy your weekend.
Anyone putting up their Christmas decorations??

Hi Christine. Lovely papers etc. The envelopes are so good for so many things aren't they! I am so glad the first few days have gone well for Elliott, sorry that the side effects may be starting to kick in now though. Enjoy your M25 free weekend. We are starting to put the decs up on Sunday. We usually do them around 14th but hubby decided we should start early this year, no compliants from the rest of us. Enjoy your weekend. Congrats to the lucky winner. Take care.

Sorry it's early and I can't spell. Should read complaints, though I suppose we are compliant too :)

Love your project, it looks great on the packaging of the envelopes. Hope you and Elliott recharge your batteries over the weekend, ready for next week. My decorations are up, I finished them yesterday, I'm entertaining at the weekend and thought it would be nice for it to look all Christmassy.

Hi Christine, so pleased the treatment is going well with Elliot and I expect he will be tired. I bet your car knows its own way to the hospital by now...
Enjoy the rest from the travelling at the weekend.
No I won't be putting my decs up yet. We are going to Prague on Sunday to the Christmas market. I believe its beautiful AND cold...brrr. The winter thermals will be on for sure.
Congratulations to the winner.

Hi Christine, sadly not my number but congrats to whoever it is! I can't believe how quickly my order from your website got to me (well I can from previous orders!); thank you I was delighted with my order and the little extra surprise. One of the items I ordered was the little brass stand and it is gorgeous!
I would normally put my decs up this weekend, but we are out visiting both days and I'm off to Bath Christmas market today - I have Monday off work, so they will go up then...at the moment it's just my door wreath, which gets changed with the seasons! Have a good weekend and break from the travelling, hugs Carole Z XX

Morning Christine, Congratulations to the lucky Winner, I thought it was me until I got out my ticket, 513, twenty numbers out, boohoo haha.
So glad Elliott's treatment is progressing well, you will both be ready for a 'rest' this weekend.
I don't usually put up Christmas decorations until after my Birthday on 12th, I usually work on the '12 days before and 12 days after' scenario.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Good morning Christine, so glad Elliott is coping well with the treatment. Enjoy the M25 free weekend.

Have just started putting a few Christmas bits out.. Advent house needs to be filled, but can't do that too early in case I raid it before the first..!!

The little envelopes are so sweet..

Take care, xx

Morning Christine,
Pleased to hear that Elliot is doing well, it must be very tiring for you both the M25 can be a nightmare, so enjoy your weekend off.
I bet its rewarding when you see your work being used like the packaging.
Never put the decorations up until the middle of December.

Hi Christine. Love todays project and congrats on having it prominently displayed on the packaging.

Elliot is bound to be tired and you with all that driving. Have a good rest both of you this weekend.

We usually put our decorations up about the middle Sunday in December. Having 4 cats the tree is undressed and redressed many times!!!

Hi Christine
I'm so glad that the first few days have gone well for Elliot. Sorry to hear that the side effects have now started to kick in. But at least you know that it's working as it should be. We go to friends in Harwich coming off the M40 onto the M25 getting off at Colchester. But I think the bit you do is worse that the bit we do. Much to early for Christmas decorations yet Christine. Congratulations to the winner. By the way, nearly forgot to say love the project

I'm just catching up on your posts and going backwards with them! I'm pleased to see that Elliot has been doing well with his treatment, such a brave boy.
We don't put our decs up until the middle of December, but as we're off to Cologne tomorrow to visit the Christmas markets, I'm hoping I may a few new ones this year!
Congratulations on your project being featured on the packaging, and also congrats to the winner.....sadly it wasn't my ticket .
