We have a winner!

Well here I am at last.  I am so sorry for not posting this last night as promised but unfortunately I had family issues and was unable to get home and to my pc until almost midnight! I hope you will forgive me.
So without further ado, let's get straight into the draw. 
I have used Randomorg. as usual and the winner is..............................................






well actually I am not going to tell you yet............ but only because I  may have a bit of good news for someone else first!!

Commenters Candy
Yesterday I received some BEAUTIFUL  LACE that I purchased off Ebay and I am so thrilled with it that I wanted to share some with you.   So as a Thank You to all those who have commented over the past week, I will be doing a draw this afternoon (no other emergencies arising..... Fingers crossed!) 

The winner will receive a SURPRISE PARCEL OF LACE & RIBBON

Here's a little tease:-

You don't have to do anything, I will check my blog and enter all the names on the comments from the past week into a hat and pick a winner. (All the names from today will count too!!)
I will post the winners name, along with the pictures for the BIG 100 draw prizes first thing tomorrow morning!! 

Ok, now down to the nitty gritty..........

The Winner of the 80 followers Candy draw is................
CAROLE Z!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Linda, love your pins and would love to be entered in the Candy draw! 

Congratulations Carole.  Please email me with your details and whether you prefer readymade pins or a starter kit.

Melanie,  In answer to your question, the glue I prefer to use for my Decorative Pins is E6000 but jewellery makers hypo cement is strong too (it's just more runny than E6000).  If you click on the Tutorials tab at the top of the blog you will find my Decorative Pins tutorial; it has a link to the place I buy mine.  I have found it the cheapest so far (including postage charge). Hope that helps.

That's it for the moment. I hope to be able to find some time to make a card or two today so, here's to crafting! 
Have a great day all.  Hugs Linda x



  1. Hi Linda,
    well congrats to Carol on winning. I hope she has many pleasant hours either making or using your pins. Though if I won your pins it would have to be a really special card to use them on. Because I would not want to use them only look at them now and again. Bought a card kit yesterday to make a presentation box with a wedding cake inside. You get the basics and put together and decorate how you like. Will send you a pic when I've finished.
    I hope the weather is kinder to everyone else out there today. have a great crafty Sunday everyone.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  2. Thanks Linda just need to find where to buy it now hope you have a great day I hope to make some cards today

  3. Good morning Linda

    Congratulations Carole! I'm sure you will just love your gift. But as Jenny said - it would need to be somebody VERY special or I would not want to let them out of my sight!

    Off to my Zumba class soon then hoefully it will be a craft day for me. I am in the process of making some anniversary cards for my nephews first wedding anniversary.

    HAve a good day Linda.

    Love from Christine x

  4. Hi Linda

    Take care
    Hugs Sue

  5. Hi Linda. I love a suprise and that is what it will be because I cant get the picture up but if you have fallen in love with it then I am sure it is stunning. Well done to Carole. It is very very wet here so gives opportunity to surf the blogs.

    Take care

  6. Thanks Linda, thanks everyone! Looking forward to this delicious candy, have emailed you Linda XX

  7. Good morning Linda on this very rainy day. Apols for not popping by, have been preoccupied lately as just lost a very lovely friend to Cancer, who fought a long battle for over three years. Sue loved knitting and making things for her home, I will miss her dearly as we've been friends for nearly 40 years. Its been good to read your blog and catch up with some other ones, cheered me up no end and taken my mind off things. Congrats to Carole you lucky one. Funnily enough I've just been looking at lace, Sue Wilson used some vintage lace on her cards recently, and I thought how wonderful it looked. Take care, happy crafting on this very wet day, keep smiling even though your heart maybe sad sometimes! Alison :)

    1. Ali I am so sorry to here of your loss. My heart goes out to you and to Sues family. I do hope you are able to find some peace in the wonderful memories that you must have. She sounds like a very lovely lady.
      Please will you email me as I would like your address.
      Take care dear one. Best wishes Linda xx

  8. Hi Linda, my congratulations to Carol too I know she will be thrilled with the pins.

    I would give mine to my dearest friend Julie who has been fighting cancer for some years now, she is a very special lady and I love her dearly as do all her other friends.

    Have a card I'm doing at the moment for my nieces birthday so hopefully will be continuing with my crafting this afternoon.

    Have a lovely day and hope the sun is shining on you as it is here.

    Hugs Christine H xx

  11. Hi Linda,

    You are such a kind person to share some of your fab new lace. Congrats to Carole on winning those super pins, I'm sure you are over the moon. Linda I hope you have sorted your family issues and that everything is ok. I have had a busy weekend with little man but I have managed to use one of the super papers you so kindly sent so if you get a minute please check my blog later so you can see what I have done with it. I hope you have a good evening and have managed to get a little crafting time.

  14. Hi Linda, sorry a bit late, well very late lot make a comment. Just wanted to congratulate Carole on winning the candy, well done Carole. Linda the lace is beautiful, did you buy from an eBay shop or an independent? I have been buying quite a few things from eBay the service is often better than from websites. Hope you are now feeling better and over the virus, take care, best wishes, Lesley xx
