It's Giveaway Time!

Hello there, sorry I have been absent from my blog for a little while. I have been really busy with my nursing job. Every three years (at least here in the UK) nurses have to revalidate their/our profession. To do this we have to produce a portfolio of evidence to show we remain capable of doing our job properly. This is a good thing for the profession but it does take a little while to do. My three year revalidation is coming up next month so I am spending some time getting it all ready, hence my absence.
 
 
So, to thank you for your patience, I have a little giveaway for you. I have four packs of embellishments from Little Things from Lucy's Cards to give away. They are the  Pearls - Glossy Eggshell Mix, Sweet Shop Sparkly Shaker Selection, Jewels - Rainbow Sparkle Mix and the Clear Iridescent Sequin Mix. Let me tell you, they are beautiful!
 
To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is leave me a comment telling me what craft product you are excited by/loving at the moment (mine would be the jewels from Lucy - I love them! I am also looking forward to getting my hands on some of the new Distress Oxide colours). You need to leave me a comment by Sunday 30th July 2017 at 13:00hrs BST. The giveaway is open worldwide. I will announce the winner on Monday 31st July 2017. Good luck!
 
** THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED **

  11. Hope all goes well with your revalidation, Michelle. There's nothing like a little added stress is there! I'm sure you'll do just fine. I'm just not sure what to do about Distress Oxides: they look lovely, but are they really that different to the Distress Inks? I'll be interested to know your thoughts. I also love Lucy's little things as she puts together such mouth watering combinations of colours and twinkly stuff. Have a good weekend, Jo x

  34. Hello Michelle
    Thank you so much for this fabulous opportunity to win some twinkly sparkles from you. They're work so well with my handmade cards.

    At the moment I'm doing the World Watercolour Painting Month challenge, and I've rediscovered, (after a very long break due to neurological problems), painting again. Such a joy!
    My favourite paints are made by Kuretake. I have their boxed set of 36 colours of watercolour paints, and their Gansai Tambi Starry paints. They're just the lovliest paints and I get such wonderful results with them. I can HIGHLY recommend them.

    I would love to be included in your 'giveaway' please.
    Many thanks ~ Cobs. x

  61. I didn't realise nurses had to do that every three years, it must be a lot of work for you but it makes me so impressed and much more reassured. I am loving the look of the new waffle flower release and I would also love to try out the new distress oxide inks.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Revalidation sounds like really hard work, I don't envy you although it's definitely a good thing. Good luck!
    I'm going to treat myself to some Distress Oxides but what I'd really like is the Tim Holtz Stamping Platform, it looks much better than my home made stamping tool!

    ReplyDelete
  63. My stamping platform is my saviour at the moment. It has got me back into being able to stamp. It enables me to use all sorts of stamps. X

    ReplyDelete
  64. Distress Oxides are really exciting me at the moment, they are so versatile! Good luck with your revalidation and thank you for the chance to win the little bags of pure gorgeousness! xxx

  66. I am loving the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero kits-- I subscribed 3 months ago and am very happy with the kits.

Good for you to be preparing your portfolio in advance!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Good luck! These things are always rather tortuous when you go through them, but very much worthwhile in the end. I would love to try some distress oxides, but for now I'm revisiting my Gansai Tambi and forgot how lovely the Pearl Colors are. Thank you for being super kind with your giveaway! Xx

    ReplyDelete
  75. Good luck with your realisation. The distress oxides is something I'm looking forward to playing with although I'm just getting into using sequins too now that I've found some suitable containers to put them in. The last packet I opened went everywhere and my poor hubby ended up on his hands and knees with wet kitchen roll dabbing them all up for me (he's definitely a keeper this one :D). Thanks for the chance to win :). Debra x

  76. I'm really excited about the oxide inks and the stamp,positioner by Tim holtz!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Well I live in South Africa and our choice of crafty goodness is next to nothing! Most of my favs I have imported myself and its extremely expensive - given our rand is practically worthless. I bought my MISTI on a black friday sale which was an absolute WIN and it has totally revolutionized my stamping. Can't live without it. I'm losing sleep over the new oxide inks...gosh...cant wait to get some of those! I'm sad to say that I do not own a single 'Little Thing' from Lucy's Cards and I have been admiring her range for a long time now! Sniff!!Hehe! Thank you for your generosity and all the best with your revalidation.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Good luck!
    Thank you for the giveaway. I recently placed my first order with Lucy - I love the way she packages her orders - such fun to open!
    Craftwise I am currently most excited by Oxide Inks and am patiently waiting to order the second release when they become available in the UK.
    Best wishes,
    Clare

    ReplyDelete
  79. Good luck on your revalidation!
    I am personally purposely staying away from the oxide inks. I know that if I like them, I am going to want them all and at some point I have to draw a line... :(
    At the moment, I am excited to try and use the defo foil transfer gel.. it's been sitting on my desk for a while now and I have yet to muster up the courage to use it ;)
    Best wishes,
    ~Nicole

  80. I do so enjoy all of your posts and videos, thank you for sharing what your up to. I had no idea you were a nurse, makes perfect sense that you would be:) I am most excited by the new scene type of dies currently being released such as Pinkfresh. These are so fun!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I am hoping to order some edger dies from PTI as I would like to try creating shaped layers on my cards. Hope work calms down for you soon.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I just got the precision plate for die cutting and I am enjoying it. There were a few dies I have that just wouldn't cut no matter what I did (I won't mention any names.). The PP has helped on all the dies that I've tried. Thanks for a chance to win the lovely embellishments...love Lucy's. good luck with the reevaluation.

    ReplyDelete
  83. These embellishments look gorgeous! Just back from vacation in the US and bought some Oxide
    Inks so I am anxious to "play" with them!!!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Stencils with anything! Also the jewels by Lucy...I have some but want more and more!!!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Embellishments are just so addictive and these look like I would definitely be in trouble. Just like Nilje, I too am trying to resist purchasing the Oxide inks as I would have to justify the purchase when I have so many other things I need to use. Thanks for the opportunity to enter the give away.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I love the sequins from Little Things from Lucy's ... so pretty. I just ordered some distress oxide inks and can't wait to try them.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Hi Michelle! I have been reviewing your craft room organization and that has inspired me to re-organize a couple of areas. Good luck with the revalidation. Right now I am also loving the jewels and I am excited just to sit and play in my craft room for a bit. I am a principal and it was a crazy busy year and I am finally having time to just be in my room. Thanks for all the inspiration! Hugs!

    ReplyDelete

  103. What a lovely thing to do! Everyone deserves a break, even from something you love to do. I'm also looking forward to getting some of the Distress Ink Oxide colors, but it will have to wait a while. Its time to start thinking about Christmas shopping for my four grandsons and that can get expensive! Good luck with your re-validation.
