Winner and nearly 500!

Hello friends

Thank you so much for the wonderful response to the November Charity
Add-On Kit - they have been going out in batches and should be with you very soon.

Today announcing the lucky number winner from
October's Charity Add-On Kit.

The number is.....

Congratulations to the winner and now for the really fun bit -
if you have the lucky number dash over to Waltzing Mouse Stamps
and pick out 6 stamp sets (make sure they are in stock).
Put your choices on an email to me - christine.emberson@blueyonder.co.uk
together with your postal address.
The lovely Claire from Waltzing Mouse will then take over and
send your stamps direct to you.
How brilliant is that?!

Talking of brilliant....I have just noticed that my followers have nearly reached 500! 
Wow - little ol' me - quite incredible.
Those of you who write a blog can appreciate that it takes quite a bit of upkeep,
but these past months it has been a real help, talking about everything
that is happening in the Emberson household and sharing it with such lovely people.

If the counter reaches the big 500 I am planning a giveaway - I'm thinking a festive one -
how about Spellbinders®, some festive papers, embellishments and
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L  goodies?
Everything you need to get started on your Christmas cards!
All you need to do is make sure you are a follower and leave me a comment
on this post.
If the follower challenge is met, winner will be announced next week.

Take care friends.

Hi Christine, just rushing off to check on my lucky number, with my fingers crossed. I love Waltzingmouse Stamps. I am not so good at keeping my blog up to date as you, I know that you put in a lot of work on it. Will cheer you on to 500 followers, and more !!
Good luck in the Emberson household, Christmas is just around the corner.

I'm surprised that you have been able to keep it going over the last few months with everything that you and the boys have had to contend with, thank you Christine, Elliot and Mitchell,
Have a good day.

Your generosity is amazing - I hope it pays back in all the support you get from readers, in terms of your shop, your fundraising and most of all the challenges you and your family are facing.

Just checked my lucky ticket and I missed out by just two - I think that's worse than being miles away!

dancing lady said...

Hi Christine, I've been a follower for some time now and read your blog daily, the good things and the bad, it feels as you say, a "big family". I haven't got a blog because I don't know how to, but I enjoy reading my regular ones each day. Thank you for sharing a gift with us all.

Maggie said...

Good morning. Now - where did I put that raffle ticket?? Thanks for blogging as you do as it's great to keep up with your news. It's a funny thing to feel close to someone you've never met, but that's what blogging does. On to the next 500 followers who will all benefit from your frequent chatterings. We'll keep in touch and looking forward to knowing what your future brings. xxMargaretxx

LoraineC said...

Hope you make the 500, I check your blog everyday but only have it bookmarked, so off I popped and am now an official follower. Thanks for taking the time to write your blog, I love the craft bits of course but letting us all share your highs and lows x

Morning Christine
Looking forward to receiving the November kit

Desiree said...

Hi Christine. That will be 500 people who have you and the boys in their thoughts, with particular caring thoughts for Elliot! I get a bit claustrophobic in certain situations so can totally relate to the problems he has been having with his mask. Am so glad that he has made such huge progress with it...go Elliot, you're nearly there! Thanks for all your inspiration Christine. I don't have much time to craft and so don't blog either, but I love to drop in daily on my favourite blogs to admire your work.x

Lacelady said...

I am definitely a follower, so who knows, I might be picked out by Bella yet!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Christine, wow how wonderful nearly 500 followers. Here's to the next 500...
You are an inspiration Christine not only for your crafting expertise but also for the courage and strength you have shown during Elliot's illness. You are an amazing lady.
Onwards and upwards. Have a lovely day.
