Winners and Exciting News!

Hi guys!  Welcome back today.  I finally got everything caught up to do the blog candy drawing!  First, however, I want to share some exciting news that I was just given.  I have been notified that I was nominated for the Crafts Beautiful Crafting Awards!  I was nominated for two categories: Best Craft Blog and Best Overall Card Designer.  I was very excited to hear the news and want to say a great big thank you for this honour.  The competition is very stiff so I am asking for your help on this to go to the site and vote (sorry to sound like such a politician!).  The link is  http://www.crafts-beautiful.com/craftawards/index.php

Now for the blog candy drawing you have all been waiting for.  In reverse order, as always, the winner of third place is.....................................................

Congratulations all!  Please email me to confirm your addresses and claim your prizes.  The game rolls over, no need to send your address if you have done it at some point.  we will draw new winners when we hit 3500 followers!  In the meantime, I have been itching to give something else away so I am going to pick four winners, each receiving a pair of free tickets to the Big Stamp and Scrap Show at Alexandra Palace in London in Sept. from those of you that leave comments on Saturday's or Sunday's posts this weekend (two from Sat and two from Sun).  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue,
What great news, I sent an e-mail to numerous magazines, to forward your name and blog, to nominate you, quiet afew months back, cannot remember if it was Mabex who suggested it!!!!You should definitely be voted for the best card designer, as there is no-one who touches you or your style, and definitely for the best blog, you have such a loyal following now, you should be so proud, you deserve every award going, that's my unbiased opinion, hee hee.
Congratulations to the candy winners, and good luck to all for the ally pally tickets, yipeeeee.

Hi Sue

hugs

Congratulations Sue.... well deserved nomination... off to vote xx

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

I think I was too tired when I read this post as I did not see the awards notice. Please, please forgive me Sue. This entry for the awards is long overdue and very much a definite in my eyes. You not only offer a constant stream of amazing cards using various techniques for our inspiration, you include full make-up details too. On top of that you reward your followers with the sweetest candy. Now anyone would say that Is enough, but no, you also treat everyone like a friend, with respect and recognition, if so required. You are willing to laugh at yourself and with us. Your schedule is busy but you never neglect your blog. So I can think of many words to describe you but I think one word says everything important... COMMITTED. Thank you. I will keep everything crossed for you and cast my vote.
Biggest hugs Linda xx
