Christmas Cards and Candy Winner!!!

Righto, today I'm not entering any challenges I'm just showcasing some of the Christmas cards I made at the weekend and then announcing the winner of my charity candy at the end of this post!

All these cards have been made using the Christmas Jingle scrap kit by Stampin' Up. These were some I made for my mum in law to give to her friends:

These are using the red border strips and snowflake medallion sticker


Gorgeous papers and more stickers and strips


More gorgeous papers, used the scallop circle punch here too

And finally a spot of stamping!

Now for the bit you've carried on reading for! Firstly thank you so much for everyone who sent in their handmade cards and gifts for my charity candy. I received:
  • 425 cards
  • A gorgeous scrapbook
  • Wall Hangers, plaques and door hangers
  • Decorations
  • Treat bags, gift bags and boxes
Thank you too, to the kind people who sent their goodies and declined to enter the candy draw. I also received so many kind words about Flynn and was touched that so many of you felt you could share your precious babies with me too.

I will be contacting SANDs over the festive period to arrange to drop off all these goodies for them to sell - 100% of the proceeds will go towards setting up new SANDs groups to offer support and understanding to parents and families affected by the loss of a baby. You can read more about SANDs here.Thank you so very much for your support.

I went through all the entries on Mr Linky and deleted any names if cards hadn't been donated. I appreciate there may still be some parcels on their way, I will pass these on to SANDs but regret I coudn't put your names forward for the draw. I also added some names for those of you who entered and don't have blogs. All names were allocated numbers on an excel spreadsheet and the winner has been selected using Random Interger Generator.

So without further ado, the winner of all these lovely goodies :

And a voucher for Silly Monkey Crafts is ...............................

That's you Patti - congratulations! Patti please can you email me your full address so I can send your parcel off to you in the States? You'll also get an email from Sally-Ann with details about your voucher for Silly Monkey Crafts too. Enjoy your candy.

Once again thank you - I am blown away by your kind support.
