Hello friends

The winner of the October Charity Kit lucky number was Lynn and she
was able to select six Waltzing Mouse stamp sets.  
As soon as they arrived, she got very busy creating and has kindly sent some photos 
of her beautiful creations using both the stamps and Spellbinders®.
The stamps featured here are Cameo To Go and the dies are Floral Ovals.
The blue and ivory work so well together.
 And a very festive creation featuring Big Blooms - Poinsettia.
Truly lovely Lynn, thank you so much for sharing.

There has been a slight delay if you did go back to order an October Kit, 
apologies - this was due to some printing issues but all resolved now and they are on their way. 

On the home front - I spent a lovely morning yesterday with a lady that has a son
who has been through a very similar experience to Elliott.  
It was pure luck that we met but I like to think fate has a hand in many things.
It was so helpful to discuss things and ask many questions. 
I feel a little more equipped now to take on the step of radiotherapy and beyond.

On Monday I mentioned that I got distracted when sorting out a pile of 
scrapbook pages, well I then got totally wrapped up in looking through a box of tags!
Here is one I had completely forgotten about....
I've used a die-cut reindeer as a mask and sprayed lightly with glimmer mist.
A festive flower to one corner and then a tiny bit of twine with a tag and heart.
Speedy really!

Take care friends.

Morning Christine, How lovely of Lynn to send you piccies of some of her makes with her winning stamps, they are really gorgeous.
I am also a believer in fate, and it will be a relief to speak to someone who has had similar experiences to Elliott's, at least you can ask questions and hopefully it will help.
Loving your little tag, it's amazing how your eyes see things, or not, as was my experience with this tag. I hadn't even seen the reindeer ha ha, it was only when I read your description, my eyes were too busy on the beautiful flower and baby tag ha ha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Love how you've done the tag with the reindeer. Lovely that you have found someone who is going through a similar experience. I think it's always better if you can talk things over with someone who has been there, done that, didn't want the tea shirt. lovely cards from the winner.
