Thank You

Hi everyone,  I just wanted to pop in and announce the winners of the blog candy drawing.  First, though, I would like to say how overwhelmed I was at the outpouring of emotional support for me the past few days.  I do truly think of you as friends and feel a connection to all of you even though we may never have met, but that connect feels stronger than ever for me.  Never having gone through losing a parent,  I didn't realise how much it would help to have so many people send their wishes and thoughts to me.  I didn't feel so alone, it was truly appreciated.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart. xxx

I am going to pick two winners instead of one for the comment game.  From the post dated December 15th (Tied Together), I have randomly selected numbers 33 and 42.  That corresponds to comments made by Nadine and Fluffycat!!

Now for the BLOG CANDY CONTEST WINNERS.  Beginning with the third place prize and working our way up to the grand prize (which will be at the bottom of the post with lots of dots or also known as my version of a drum roll).

The winner of third prize is........................................................

Congrats to all the winners here, what a wonderful surprise here just before christmas, so almost an extra present here ha ha ha. Please enjoy them girls.
Glad you felt comforted Sue, as it really is very hard to loose a parent, so I´m sure glad, if I could do a tiny bit to make you feel a little better, and hope the pain will ease more soon and leave you with all the wonderful memories, that´ll get more and more in the foreground, I can promisse, and soon you´ll notice, that it´s always these good memories you get in the thoughts, I promisse.
Have a great christmas after all and try to keep the spirit up. Take good care.

Well done everyone.

Glad everyone's comments were of help to you Sue. Personally I have lost both parents, so has my husband and I also lost a brother when he was 18 and I was only 9 and a half - treasured memories will get you through.

Thinking of you Sue - you are always such an inspiration on C&C.

Hugs

Well I have just dropped by to see today's creation and found that I have come 3rd in the draw so what a lovely surprize, thank you so much Sue it has really made my day. I am so pleased that our support has helped you we all feel for you. Love the card the overlapping of the dies and the red and black are very striking. In fact I have no black card here, so have had to dash out and get some. Thanks once again, All the best Suzie B

Sue Parish said...

Sue, It's because of your own caring ways that we care so much, you have earned your place in all our hearts. Look again at the photo's you took at Ally Pally in the April blog - all those smiling faces aren't just smiling because they've seen a camera, they're smiling because they've recognized who's behind it, YOU! You give and give - look at this week, you are going through so much, but we still get our daily blog and the winners their prizes too (Congratulations winners). What a woman you are, Sue, and an example to us all. Your Dad must have been very, very proud of you. Sue x
