Update on the Grand Draw

Just a quick reminder that the Grand Draw has one more prize left to come in a day or two. Been very busy here running round doing errands etc. getting ready for full lock down Version 3 at midnight, just as this publishes.

I've cut off future comments on all this Christmas's Grand Draw prizes which go back to 2020, apart from the bumper prize which published on New Year's Eve, and that only has a couple of days grace left. And I will keep turning off comments once a prize has been up on offer for a week. If I do ever do this again, something I say each year, that's how the Grand Draw will operate in future to keep things fair.

Watch out for the final prize - if I manage that for Thursday then you will only have just under two and a half days to comment.

On a really positive note, which God knows we need right now, we have a lovely flurry of Guest Designers as well as our first 'Ruby's Memory Challenge' coming up very soon. And some very generously donated prizes - but remember - it's snippets we need from you, first and foremost!! Good times ahead ☺

Stay safe and keep wearing those masks please.


  1. Stay safe Di...we have heard about the lockdown and we hope it is helpful and can save many lives. Take care.

  2. Popping in here Di, regularly as know things are rough over there so you're all in my thoughts and prayers... this is a lovely time of year here in Oz, enjoying my post Christmas chill this year. Not made any cards, which isn't normal!
    Thanks for continuing to keep on sharing, dear Di, and may God bless and keep you and all whom you love safe and well.
    Prayer hugs, Shaz in Oz. X

    Thanks for visiting my blog and thanks for the tip - I overlooked that I only have a translator on the main page of my blog.
    Big hug, Majda

  15. I was just getting round to checking out the latest prizes, but I see I left it too long (as usual...). I started working again this week and had to go full speed. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know you owl card is too cute! Also, our dog Bernie would prefer hubby not to take him outside to have his hair brushed. Fortunately for him, this happens only 1 in 7-10 days.
    Stay safe!
