And the winner is .....

Sorry for the delay in the draw but following the nerve-racking experience of taking my dance medals, I have to admit doing the draw wasn't uppermost in my mind.
Well thank you to you 5 lovely ladies for commenting, following and linking. I tried to download a random generator but just couldn't figure it out so I had to do it the 'old-fashioned' way. So here are the names ready to go into the draw.

And here's the winner


Congratulations Carrie!

The Pretties Kit is on its way to you. Hope you have lots of crafting fun with it.

Candy! Candy! Candy! Free! Free! Free!

This post will stay at the top until the draw takes place. Please scroll down for newer posts.

Yes , it's true I'm giving away some free crafting candy! Why? Well, why not? I have just realised that my visit counter has clicked over the 4000 mark so to thank all my visitors, I thought I'd offer this.......

It's the lovely Pretties Kit which is sadly no longer available in the new catalogue.

The kit contains:
White flowers (50: 10 each in 5 sizes)
White halfback peaerls (30 small, 20 medium, 10 large)
White round pearls with holes (30 small, 15 large)
Cream round pearls with holes (30 small, 15 large)
Clear round beads with centre hole (10)
Clear round beads with side hole (10)
Clear teardrops (20)
Clear round rhinestone brads ( 20 small, 15 medium, 15 large)
Hat pins with clutches (10)
Spacer beads (30)
And it all comes in a lovely re-usable metal tin with hinged lid.

The flowers can be coloured with your Stampin' Up or Promarker pens. See how Dawn does it here
You can also colour the pearls and rhinestones using Promarkers or Stampin ' Up refill inks.

And here's a couple of my own cards made with the beads on hat pins. I think they had a touch of class.

If you'd like a chance to get your mitts on this gorgeous kit, just follow these simple rules:

I'll be drawing the lucky person's name on Sunday 21st November. Good luck!

LOTV Challenge

Here's my entry for the Lili of the Valley 'Anything Goes' Challenge.
I have also entered it into the Cute Card Thursday Challenge

Hopefully this would cheer up anyone who is unwell!

The card,  backing papers and ribbon are Stampin' Up.
I have used the SU scallop edge punch and nesties for the hexagons.
I can't remember where I picked the little ribbon flowers up from.

Thanks for looking and don't forget to enter my draw for the lovely Pretties Set.
