Todays Winner ...

Hi Everybody,

First I would like to say "Thank You" to all of you who add your names to my Friday Freebie list to win one of my cards.   It is very humbling to know that so many of you would like one. And those who have own one and then written to say how much you like the one you have.

So once again the draw has been done by my "Film Crew" to choose the winner for this weeks pale blue card.  The name chosen is you ...

Lyn Nash
can you email me please 
with your postal address and the card will be on it's way to you

A Little Story ...

Made For Me
This card is not on offer as a freebie because it is one that was  Made For Me by a lady called Margaret.

I met Margaret at the GNPE craft show in Harrogate

Margaret told me that the previous year she had walked all around looking at the stall holders because she knew I was there and she thought I would have a stall.

Eventually she realised that I didn't and so this year she wandered around looking at the visitors and was delighted when she found me.  It was a lovely moment and I was so happy to meet her and several other ladies who recognised me

Margaret made the card and put a lovely note inside it to thank me for the things she has learned from the blog and my website.  She also told me that after she had spotted me she went round again and this time she bought things she needed 

Can I just say that it is my pleasure to share and you are all so very welcome ... you ALL simply make my day.

And one last note I will be on Create and Craft next Saturday at 4 pm and Sunday at 12 noon so I hope you will come and join me then

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  14. I think Margaret really took your inspiration and card examples to heart, Christina. That is a beautiful card she made for you. She is an inspiration herself. I would've probably stopped at the butterfly and bow, but I love that by adding the pearl flight trail coming from the side she made it ever so slightly more whimsical and not so perfectly aligned which made it all the more beautiful. I'm going to have to remember that. Thank you both for your inspiration and examples.

  15. Hi Christina, what a lovely card Margaret made for you, we all appreciate the work you put into the beautiful cards and video's you and the Film Crew make for our benefit, we learn so much from you. I shall be watching and recording your shows next week and hope we don't get a presenter who talks more about themselves!!!.
    Congratulations Lynn on winning a beautiful 'Christina Card' I won a couple of weeks ago and I am still showing it around!
    Regards Liz.

  16. Congratulations Lyn Nash! Margaret's card is lovely. The embossing is beautiful as is the butterfly embellishment. There are so many wonderful people in the crafting world and Margaret is obviously one of them.
