July went by really quickly so today it was time to put all the names into the cup for my fourth birthday prize draw.
Thank you to everyone that ordered and purchased from me this month. There were fourteen names in the cup and the winner is ……
Congratulations Kate. I hope you like your prize – a set of five bird and owl cards.
We’ve had quite a lot to do this Easter holiday and this week Alice has been entering lots of competitions in our local shopping centres. First the small independent shopping centre, Millgate, ran a competition to design an Easter egg, the first prize is an Easter egg and an egg for everyone in their class at school.
I love watching Alice doing this type of thing. As the deadline is at the end of the week, we went for a cuppa to give her time and space to do her design entry. As usual I had my ‘big’ bag with me which has a box of crayons and some coloured pencils in – I feel this is a real sign of being a Mum!
Last week we entered the Easter egg hunt on The Rock shopping complex. There always seems to be something like this on there in the school holidays, and it’s something different to do outside. Surprising though, this time Alice won the first prize – a month’s tuition at Explore Learning and an enormous Thorntons Easter Egg filled with Millies Cookies!!! So we collected the prize this afternoon.
I think we have one happy little girl this Easter holiday and we might just have to share the egg and cookies around friends and family!
Happy Chocolate Eating!
I’ve been a member of the Talkies craft group on facebook for about 18 months or so now, and while I take part as much as I can I haven’t really entered any of the competitions or swaps. However, in October they announced a little competition to make a card from any Hunkydory craft kit. It could be anything, the only rules being you couldn’t use any dies or any other kits, only basic essentials could be used for embellishments, so it was let your imagination run wild with any kit you liked. I thought about entering for a while, but wasn’t sure my simple approach to card making would be up to the intricacies of some of the very seasoned crafters.
In the end I decided to enter one of my cracker Christmas cards made from one of the Christmas kits. It met the brief and I was pleased with the finished card.
I did leave entering until the very last minute, so later the same day I was astounded to find that I had been judged as the winner! The judge really liked the simplicity of the design and how I used the features of the cardstock to enhance the cracker!
My prize was £30 of Hunkydory products, which I am delighted to say have arrived this morning in the post! What a lovely bundle it is too. I haven’t shown it to Alice yet as I’m sure she will want to get her hands on it as it is a full set of toppers, decoupage, concept cards, envelopes, cardstock, and inserts from the ‘Smudge and Mitten’ collection. So cute, watch out for these cards in the future.
Thank you to everyone involved in the competition and to Hunkydory for such a lovely prize.
And the winner of the 5 crochet hearts is……..
Thank you to everyone that entered and for all the lovely ideas. I shall be using some of them in the future I have no doubt.
Louise has chosen a set of red and white hearts. I hope they look lovely on your Christmas tree.
