2017 Christmas Die Release Winners

Hello crafters!  Once again thank you for the overwhelming show of support for this latest die release!  I am always on the edge of my seat wondering how they will be received every single die release, but I am so pleased that you really seemed to like these.  IT has been one of my personal very favourites to design and launch.  Considering the sweltering heat that was upon us during the launch, I thank you for getting into the Christmas spirit so early!  What I didn't want to confess to too early was that I probably made more Christmas cards with this release than I have with any of my previous releases so you will be seeing a serious amount of them (so sorry!).  Now on to the winners!

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Good grief I remembered lol. I can't begin to tell you just how delighted I am to see sooo many regular followers that we see comment everyday, it makes me so happy and you all deserve your gifts. I can hear whoops of delight from up and down the country and one even upside down. I'm already seeing the most gorgeous cards on fb groups using your new festive dies Sue, and I look forward to seeing more just like I'm looking forward to your samples and please stop apologizing why wouldn't we want to see as many as you're planning to show, the more the better in my opinion and because a lot of them can be used all year round you'll have to point them out to us like Beverly F had to with her Beverly Beauty from Maryland lol sooo many stunning Stained Glass cards filtering through too, so bring it on ladies and show your gifts in action ☺ enjoying xxx

Bejay Roles said...

OMG, Sue,
I can't believe that I'm one of the lucky Wilsonette's to have my name drawn. I was ready to look at the winners and just send a congratulations post...then, as I went down the list thinking to myself that my name wouldn't be there...there it was and for the Forest Animals as well, which I instantly fell in love with when I saw it.
Congratulations to all the rest of the winners and thank you once again for drawing my name, Sue.

stitchingranny said...

wow I won the lovely Robin Redbreast stain glass window die and I am so thrilled. I love this die and cannot wait to play with it. Thank you so much Sue. I have taken part in a good few of these give-a-way posts and its always fun, but Sue has so many followers that I knew I didn't have much chance of winning. So I was super excited to see my name on that list last night. First thing I did was not contact Sue with my details, but rush to phone my daughter and tell her lol.

Congratulations to all the other lucky winners.

Hugs to all
Helen xx
