Congratulations to the lucky winners!! Enjoy, enjoy!! Although I am not one of the winners, I have really enjoyed following the release of all the new dies - so many, so little time! Thank you Sue, it has been wonderful to see some of your ideas on using the new dies. It will have to be a question of saving my pennies and deciding which to have first. Meantime I shall be inspired to use some of your dies from your previous lauch - confession, I have got quite a few of those!!! Crafty hugs to all on the blog, Gilly R xxx

Dear Sue and the lovely band of Wilsonettes,
Thank you so very much Sue for drawing my name out as a winner, as i was so shocked i started to cry as i can't believe that i am on that honoured list. To all the winners well done i really hope that you get the pleasure out of the set you have won as much as i will. I think though that we are all winners on Sue's blog, i know i am as i have found a beautiful pleasure each morning that perks me up, i have found beautiful people that i have never met that are the dearest friends you could ever wish to meet. Thank you Sue for your generousity but also your friendship as because of your kindness and wanting to everyone see that they can do this as well you have opened your heart and talented hands up to strangers that have become friends. Take care dear lady

Stephanie Cotterill said...

I decided it was wrong to start leaving comments again during the launch week but looked in every day (apart from last Wednesday) and loved them all and am a lucky owner of two as a 'thank you' gift, I'm so delighted to see our lovely wonderful Sam is a lucky winner, well done chick, and I can honestly say that the HAPPY die couldn't have gone to a more deserved Wilsonette.

Congrats to all. Enjoy Sue's gift and heartfelt generosity.

Hello Sue

I just wanted to say thank you. The four times a day postings of beautiful new dies and exquisite sample cards for five days was so exciting.

You were so very kind to offer dies to win in a draw as well. Congratulations to all the lucky winners. I'm sure they will not only love the dies, but treasure them because they have been generously given by the creator of them.

I'm so glad that you enjoyed reading all the posts (and there were a lot!). You have many dedicated followers and I hope you feel the pride you should because you have worked so hard and this latest collection is superb.


Thanks again

It is so awesome to see so many familiar names of ladies on this blog who won in this drawing. So, so happy for you all. We know some of you in particular have been struggling through trials, so it does the heart good to see you get a blessing.

A favorite saying which comes to mind. "Sorrow comes to stretch out spaces in the heart for joy."

Thanks Sue, for spreading all this joy!
