The Crafty Pad is featured on....

Extremely Crafty

Michele has featured The Crafty Pad HERE And what a lovely write up she has given us too -- Thank you Michele. :)

I have given a raffle prize of 'June Doing the Race for Life' stamp and one other of the winners choice from The Crafty Pad.

As you know I have designed 'June Doing the Race for LIfe' stamp to help raise money for the Cancer Research Charity - every stamp I sell of it - I donate £1.00 to the charity.


Michele is running great raffle prizes in aid of the Marsden Cancer Charity - you can donate online there too. Please do pop over and check out Michele's blog - it is fabulous. It makes for great reading also - you won't be sorry you visited. :)
And you too could join in on her raffle prize fun and help along the way to such a worthy cause. :) :)

If you do pop over to Michele's then would be most grateful if you left a comment here to let me know what you think of The Crafty Pad being featured there. :)

Update from Debbie....

Debbie has asked if I would kindly let you know that very sadly yesterday morning, her dear mum passed away.

I'm sure you will join me in saying that Debbie and all her family are in our thoughts at this very sad time.

Any orders that have been made for her new stamps will be posted out next week. If anyone has any queies regarding them, you can leave her an email message via the link on The Crafty Pad Side Bar and she will deal with them as and when she can.

Regarding any entries for this week's Challenge at The Crafty Pad and sunday's new Challenge.......

Will all continue as normal. Maxine and I are keeping things ticking over... any winners will be notified and Debbie will sort out the prizes at a suitable time. This week's prize will be a Guest DT place and a stamp for the chosen week.... The winner will still be picked, but the 'prize' may be slightly delayed. I'm sure you will all understand.
Thanks for your understanding
