One Year On........£20 Blog Candy Up For Grabs.


THE LUCKY WINNER IS xGemmax. (have emailed you Gemma but unsure if you will get it thru blogger)

This post will stay at the top til 21st Oct so if you would like to see my creations please scroll down..................

Many of you will know that I had a major operation last year to rid me of Ovarian Cancer. To those of you who are not aware, a large malignant tumour was found on my right ovary while I was being treated for an unrelated condition. Within 2 months I had had a Total Abdominal Hysterectomy, and all my other lady bits and 12 lymph nodes on the right hand side removed. Thankfully for me and my family the cancer was totally removed in the operation and I required no further treatment.

To thank you all for your good wishes prior to my operation and your messages of support and cards since then, and to celebrate the fact that I am one year on and now cancer-free, I would like to offer one of you £20 to spend at Funky Kits (which is based in my home town of Elgin). If you visit their fabulous site you can see just how wide the range of goodies can be for you if you win.

I had my op on the 7th October 2009 and it is my birthday on the 21st Oct so I will keep this open until midnight 21st and then will get my very supportive hubby to pick one lucky winner at random - I will then contact the lucky winner on the 22nd to get address etc and he/she will then be able to choose items ranging from stamps, papers, embellishments, digi images, whatever up to the value of £20, to spend as you wish in the store. And the goods will then be posted directly to you by Funky Kits.

All you need to do to enter is ~

become a follower (if not already) and every comment you make on any card I post on here (from today Mon 4th) until midnight 21st will go into the draw once (for example if you comment on 3 cards you will get 3 chances, comment on 12 cards, you get 12 chances!!) - the more the merrier and the bigger the party! Remember no cheating - only 1 comment per card allowed. Anyone found to be cheating will be disqualified.

Simple as that!

Good luck you happy crafters out there!
