Competition Winners & Little Claire Likes - 'Baby Changing Tree'

Good morning,
firstly, thank you to all of the lovely crafters that visited our stand at the Sincerely Yours - Biggin Hill show yesterday.  It was great to see so many familiar faces!
we must announce the three winners of our last competition, to win a set each of the lovely new May Club Stamp Set - 'Freedom'.
Jane, who said ......
Oh this is such a great set of stamps. It's lovely to see the butterflies coming out of the birdcage...great idea. If I had a day of freedom I would sit out in my little garden studio creating cards and jewellery all day long. I would be able to see the butterflies in the bushes, I would have my radio on and my cat Billy would lie in his basket beside me purring....bliss ;0) xx
Rachel, who said ......
such a gorgeous stamp set - I love mine and if lucky enough to win another \i would give it to my lovely mum - she's a crafter - and she is the one I would choose to spend a day of freedom with.... I would take her somewhere of her choosing and spend it as she would like. Mum has a hard time looking after my dad - it would be great to spoil her! hugs rachel x
Lucy, who said ......
I have Severe ME and have been bedridden and unable to talk to my family, eat food, leave the house or even go downstairs for over 2 years now so freedom would mean more than ANYTHING to me!!
I'd speak to all my friends and family give them all huge hugs, drive my mini to the coast and eat fish and chips smelling the fresh sea air and listening to the seagulls! Oh gosh I would cry with happiness!!!  P.s I love these new stamps!! The girl and bird cage are gorgeous! And what stunning DT cards!xx
Well done ladies! Three such worthwhile reasons to win the stamps.
