Blog candy winner and bits of news

Hello all, some updates, news and my candy winner, a few hours early but as some of you know things are not going quite to plan this week to say the least and my activities tomorrow when I should have done the draw, have been 're-organised' for me.

So the first bit of news. Feeling a bit down what with Bernie being so ill and my own health issues it really cheered me up today to find out that I was in this week Passion for Pormarkers Top 5 with this, so thank you to everyone over there.

I need to remind you that By the Short and Girly .......don't you just love the name........challenge starts on 1st October. There are some absolutely fantastic sponsors lined up with several prizes on offer every challenge and not just card making either. So if you haven't already been over and added your name for the welcome candy on offer what are you waiting for ?

Moving to Bernie, he came home this afternoon, he is very poorly and apart from the aftermath of the operation itself has developed an irregular heartbeat. He does not feel much like eating still - even the prescribed diet of puree chicken, so it's very much a day at a time. But at least he should feel happier in his own surroundings and he won't be short of love and attention.

On to my candy........I was thrilled so many of you took part and have really enjoyed reading your wonderful comments from all around the world........blogging really does make the world seem a much smaller and very friendly place. I am pleased to announce that random org., had chosen Tracey, so please mail me Tracey with your snail mail address and I will get your candy off to you and you should be well on your way with your Christmas cards.

And a picture to share, this lady is Buffy my daily crafting companion, well they are all companions, but Buffy seems to show the most interest in crafting........or should I be perfectly honest and say the sweets in my drawer........non of the others seem to have cottoned on to where they actually come from.

Hi Brenda,
