FREE PASS Draw … a gift … an award … & I have been tagged!

Hello to all my blog friends!

I promised to do my FREE PASS DRAW today … but … before I get onto “business” … I just had to show you the wonderful surprise that arrived via the postie today. This was a gift from a wonderful blog friend … who has been so supportive and encouraging to me this year. We are planning to have a stamping play day sometime in the New Year … and I just can’t wait to meet her! Thanks Lynda for your lovely surprise and the gorgeous gift. Oh dear! I think I am going to have to get that owl punch after all. How can I resist it now???

So … I have just done the draw for the INKspirations 4U! Valentine’s & Birthday Extravaganza online classes.  I wish I had 10 free passes to give away … because I got so many lovely comments! I did the draw using an online “Quick Lottery Picker” … and here is the winning draw (13 & 8)! 😀 So … by numbering each of the comments as they were posted (& excluding Leonie’s 2nd comment & Sonia’s comment – cos she is on the design team) … the two free passes go to … drum roll please! … Gemma & Kim! I will forward your email addresses to Madeline … so she can issue your free passes!

For those who missed out on the draw … thank you so much for your interest and your wonderful comments. You might like to still participate in this FAB online class … meet some new online stamping friends … play along with the colour & sketch challenges … and receive access to 10+ project PDF tutorials to create at your own leisure! 🙂 Just click on the button below to register for this class. Early bird discount applies until Dec 30.

A big thank you to Melissa for passing on a lovely award … it is always a thrill to receive this kind of acknowledgement from my stamping friends! I did post my “8 things about me” recently … but will take this opportunity to pass this lovely award onto these wonderful blog friends …

ONE LAST ITEM … a big thank you to Jess for “tagging” me on her blog! (I haven’t been “tagged” before!) 😀 Apparently this involves making a list … and this one did have me thinking a little! 😀 It was an interesting exercise! So … here is my list … (click on pic to enlarge) 😀



And … I also have to tag 4 other people …

Well … I think that is all the house-keeping for  today! I do have a card to show you … but I am waiting for the camera battery to charge so I can take a photo! So … pop back later to see my newest creation! Hugs xxaxx
