Blog Candy...think PINK!

This post will stay at the top...please scroll down for any newer posts, thank you.
I got a lovely parcel in the mail today from my new friends over at Crea Shop Duymelot in Holland.
My addiction to all things papery has been satisfied...for now! I also bought some stamps for gifts and one for a blog candy.
Do you remember me telling you about Magnolia producing a special Tilda stamp, only to be sold HERE?
Magnolia are donating 500 euros to the Swedish Cancer Fund, and for every one of these stamps sold 2 euros is donated to the Pink Ribbon Cancer Fund and so a very good way to raise funds and awareness.
This charity is also very close to Astrid's heart (the owner of the Dutch shop) as she has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer herself and went into hospital last Tuesday for an operation.

There was good news and not so good news. The tumour was small and the surgeons removed it all, and it had not spread. But the bad news is that the biopsy showed this to be the most aggressive type of breast cancer, so Astrid will now have radiation treatment and chemotherapy, as a precaution, to be extra safe.
It was very fortunate that this tumour was caught so early...keep checking your boobies ladies!!
My very best wishes go to Astrid, her husband Kees, and family.
So on that note I have a little candy.

And in keeping with the Pink theme I have added a couple of extra bits and pieces.

A 6x6 pad of MME Love Me papers.

A pack of Prima flowers.

And a Pink mini ribbon kit.

The rules are a little different this please read below.
As usual, candy is for my followers and is open worldwide but I am not liable for any customs/duties that some countries impose.
But this time in order to enter I want you to post the top photo of the Tilda stamp on your sidebar, or in a post and link it back to this post...just to spread the message around again to keep on checking your boobs!
Candy will stay open until Friday November 18th 6pm GMT.
Please click on the blue froggy to enter.
Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xxx

    And it's so scary then everyone should go check himself
    Thanks again

  49. Oh sorry to hear about your friend, Astrid. Awesome that they were able to remove the tumor...will keep her in my prayers as she goes through treatment!! Thanks so much for spreading the work about Breast Cancer...and self exams. And thanks for the opportunity to win this fabulous pink candy!! Hugs. Pat Frank

  50. Elaine...I will help to spread the word on my blog too. I think most of us know somebody who has or had some form of cancer. My auntie died on Monday night from a pulminary embolism however she was in hospital undergoing her cancer treatment. her cancer wasn't aggresive and could be treated so it was a shock to us all when she died from something else. I wish one day that the scientists can find a cure to treat all cancers...


  51. Thank you soooo much for the chance to win this amazing candy Elaine!!! Well done on supporting such a worthy cause!!
    I'm happy to help spreading the word...
    Hugs, TinaM

  52. Gives me chills to think that BC can affect so many of us. Thanks for spreading the word and really making us think about the things we think will never happen to us.

    Your candy is FAB and I have already posted it on my sidebar.

    Big hugs;

  53. Hi Elaine,

  62. Thanks for the chance to win all these goodies!
    It's not the best of news, but it is good news they got it all. Hope the treatments go smoothly!

  63. What a kind and thoughtful thing to do to spread the word about such a worthwhile cause ... I came across your blog while blog hopping and am about to go and check out your gorgeous work ... I have just become a follower and am looking forward to seeing more of your creations. Thank you ... Julie :D

  64. I have just found your blog. Thank you for the chance to win your lovely candy. Could I just say that my son was diagnosed with a very aggressive cancer last year and when diagnosed he was already in stage 4 but the doctor told us that the fact tht it was very aggressive was slightly better as it would attack the chemo with the same aggression and that made it easier to treat. Come February my son will have been in remission for one year. He also received radiotherapy as a precaution. So maybe Astrid can take some heart from this.

  65. I am your newest follower and admirer... and thank you for getting the word out about breast cancer! I just lost my Mom on July 31st to this horrible disease and every woman who can SHOULD get checked and have a mammogram! It is so important! I have posted and linked about your site and wonderful giveaway on my blogs sidebar... visit me too sometime! Thanks for the chance to win such a GREAT giveaway and GORGEOUS goodies!
    Crafty Hugs,

  66. hiya Elaine,

    How are you? I have left Astrid a message and I wish her lots of strength and love to follow her all her days and cheer her while she SURVIVES!

    Technology is great and has advanced so much and SURVIVAL is high and the love that people send to find an all out cure is tremendous!

    I am clear 8 years now and had a very agressive tumour and surgery too - Think positive Astrid!
