Sweet Sugar Christmas Candy Winner.

Thank you to everyone that entered the little candy. You will LOVE these stamps, they are definitely my favourite ever Christmas images, winner in a moment...

I had a lovely time at Harrogate last Saturday, the best part of the day was meeting the other ladies...Christine and ChristineLisa JaneMau, Avril and Joan (I hope I got everyones name right!)
I also met the very lovely Kath who has the most beautiful accent and was actually working when I spied her, doing demos for Craftwork Cards.
I had a coffee and a good old natter with Jill, owner of The Hobby House. Jill also feeds my paper addiction!
It was a really, really good day out and I had a thoroughly good time.

OK, on to the candy. Mr Random picked a number....

Congratulations to Janette G..if you can please EMAIL ME with your full postal address and I can get your parcel in the mail to you.

Next is a little photo of what Emma got up to on Saturday!!

It is quite a large tattoo, but I do think it's beautiful..(not what Phil thinks!)
I did say to Emma that I could always go and get one myself, but with the size of me I could have the full bouquet instead of just one bloom..not bloomin' likely..I bet it hurt a bit!

Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xxx


  1. Wow - what a gorgeous tattoo and such a beautiful sentiment xx

  2. Definitely looks a bit sore still. Don't think I could get my head round that at all......... Glad you had a good time at Harrogate, I'm looking forward to Cardiff in a fortnight or so. Congratulations to Janette & thanks for doing this one Elaine.

    Hugs Mau xx

  12. Fab that you had a great day out hunni you deserve to. Big congrats to the winner these really are the most gorgeous crimbo stamps.
    Emma's tatto is bloody gorgeous......sorry about my french but I really do love it. I love tattoo's I'm due another one......its been a couple of years since my last one lol. Yes they are addictive once you get one, this is the lushiest tattoo I've seen for a long time.........I want it!!!!!!!

    Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

  13. oh aye, that looks a bit nippy - I just have a wee one on my spine and that was bad enough, although I want the kids names done on my back too at some point.
    Gutted I didn't make it to Harrogate this time, fingers crossed for next time.
    And I hope you got your bosie from me via Kath

  14. WOW. It's gorgeous.
    My Son had quite a large Celtic design going from one side of his shoulder to the other on his back, that was his first one too (I say first one, 'cos he keeps going on about another!!)
    Has your daughter been given "Nappy Rash" cream to put on it? My Son was, and I put it on his tatoo about three times a day. It kept it from getting crusty and made it heal in no time. Debbiexx


  16. Ouch....go for the temporary ones sharp objects involved. LOL....I am picturing me as a bed of roses...ha!

  17. Your Emma is real brave! i got a few when i was young, little ones in discreet places that i am now sorry about at 47YO. I have to say that it is a beauty.
    Glad you had a good tie at your get together, i miss not having crafty friends to chin wag with.

  18. Congrats to Janette. Oh Ouch. It is beautiful but I don't like pain.
    Glad you had a super time at the show.

  19. O........ M............G!!!! Very pretty design on what looks like a lovely girlie.... but..... I'm still an O.........M.......G at tattoos person....

  21. Hi Elaine
    BIG congrats to Janette, Oh Elaine you make me laugh (little) candy you say, I wouldn't say 5 stamps is a little candy, you are way too kind.
    I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Emma's tattoo (wouldn't it make a beautiful stamp) lol. I remember when our son got a tattoo, we had to hide it from his Dad, as he is a bit old fashioned about them, (I was going to wait until the right moment to tell him), BUT he found out, when our daughter accidentally knocked into the tattoo, and he screamed like a banshee oops.
