Christmas Stocking Charity Raffle

Hello friends

Thank you for all your kind comments yesterday and for also
popping over to the Spellbinders blog - I know their website can be a little slow
at times, it receives a lot of traffic.
Toni asked about chipboard - a lot of what I use is recycled, I find it in packaging,
even cereal boxes I just glue a few layers together.
If I want pre-made chipboard to match grand dies I do use
Want2Scrap - available here.  I believe eBay and Amazon may sell chipboard,
it is often called greyboard.  Hope that helps.

Also, I should have mentioned - I punched the holes for the book with a Crop A Dile,
looks quite lethal but does the job!

Today I've got something beautiful and festive to share with you.

A handmade Christmas stocking. 
Ruth who used to come along to my classes and Knit and Natters mentioned that her mum
makes these stockings and she offered to create one for me to raffle.
I jumped at the opportunity as I'm always keen to continue helping
Ronald McDonald House and the Royal Marsden.
The photos really do not do it justice, there is intricate beading detail along with
beautiful stitching.
It is a good size - perfect for gifts or to hang as a stunning decoration.
So if you would like to be in with a chance of winning, 
I've set up a PayPal system to purchase raffle tickets, much like before,
two buttons as tickets are £1 each or 6 for £5.


Once you submit payment I will email through your tickets,
(I will make a start this afternoon/evening so please do not worry
if your tickets do not instantly appear in your inbox).
Of course, any questions please email.

The lucky winner will be announced in time for last posting day
so you will have your stocking in time for Christmas -
I wouldn't want Father Christmas to miss filling up this beauty!

Huge thanks to Ruth's mum and Ruth for sending this out to me.
As always, thank you for your amazing support - we really do make a difference.

Also, I keep meaning to say... don't forget to check out pre-loved dies on the website,
they change frequently so keep checking back.
Take care friends and good luck!
