We have a tie!! Two winners!!!!

We have a tie!! Two winners!!!!

Hi there!
Thanks for popping in.
The start of a new week, but alas 
– the end of the Olympics.
Aaahhh…
Well, at least until the paralympics, which are just as amazing.

So let’s wrap up our Blogathon too.
It has been fun.
I have to say, I think the trampoline was definitely my forté.

Roll on Tokyo!
I’m ready!

Right at the beginning of our Blogathon, we had a little wager,
and I challenged you to make a tribute card to TEAM GB
using our Clarity Flagstamps, remember?

If you do have the flag stamps,
then I challenge you to use it to make a cool 
Team GB Olympic Card.
Email me a copy and we will pick a winner.

Thank you so much if you joined in!
We had some really lovely entries –

I have picked these 2 fab cards.
Aren’t they super??
To keep it simple, 
why don’t we just send a £20 Gift Voucher to both

Donna Brooks

and 
Penny Hewitt!

I have got a lot still to do today, so I won’t stay long.
Just wanted to announce the winners!

Ah yes!
There is something exciting I want to share with you!
Speaking of winners,
we have been nominated by your good selves 
for some International Craft Awards;
in fact, we’ve been shortlisted in  – wait for it –
14 categories!!!!
That’s crazy! I didn’t even know there were that many categories !!
We can’t quite believe it here at Clarity.
Voting commences online on 13th September
at http://www.craftsbeautiful.com/awards/

Unprecedented apparently, 
for one company to be nominated for so many categories. 
Team Clarity Rocks !!

Thank you for nominating us.
I know it was you guys !!!

Love & Gratitude,

Barb

  1. Well done to Donna and Penny. Wonderful cards. Going to miss watching Olympics just hope the paralympics gets sorted. How wonderful to be nominated in all those categories, reckon we will all be ready to vote as well. Clarity is just amazing in all ways, products, service, friendliness and quality to name a few. Am I a fan, you bet I am. Good luck. xx

  2. Hi Barb, worthy winners for the 2 cards. As for Team Clarity with Captain Barb, worthy nominees. I don't care what the categories are, I think Clarity fits them all in one way or another. Bx

  3. Well done Donna and Penny! Fantastic cards! I think you will be fine for Tokyo Barbara! I'm thinking about the cycling as hubby has out his bike on a stand in the garage – I need a step to get on and off it but once on I can cycle to my hearts content ! However a softer saddle would be good! Xx

  4. Two excellent winners, congratulations each. I'd love to have seen them all. Congratulation team Clarity – 14 categories, brilliant! I'll be voting.

  5. Hi everyone, had a shock today and if I had anything to put in perspective it would he been today. We went for,lunch with the 'prostate' men. I could see one of them Had lost weight and was very pale and after letting us have lunch his wife broke the new that last week he'd been diagnosed with pancreatic and liver cancer. I don't think I need say anymore. they were a breath of fresh air in how they're dealing with it but it brought back a lot of memories of our dear friend and neighbor who had pancreatic and now of source our friend who has liver c. Talk about it being all around. we just count ourselves lucky.

    Hugs to,all that need them. Sorry for bad new but it helps,to talk,about it. Xx

    1. Jackie,
      That is very sad news. I know how you feel – 5 of the people I played netball with( out of 9) have been diagnosed with breast cancer. I had to go for mammogram last week and when the envelope came through the letterbox this morning I was really scared about opening it, but fortunately it was good news! Feel free to talk about it on here and we will all try to help you out. Love and hugs Alison xxx

    2. Hi Jackie,such sad news but last week one of my neighbours came to see me and told she has early stages of breast cancer so fit and always on the go. So I can see how you feel. But all though we sometimes don't know how to.react it is still good to talk. Hugs Lynn xx

    3. I left you a message above before I read this so apologies ,Such sad news Jackie it seems that so many people suffer cancer around us now it's always good to share hugs xxx

    4. I'm so sorry to hear your news Jackie, it is indeed a terrible disease. But the recovery rate is getting better and better each year. I totally understand how scary this news will have been for you, but please remember to think positive….Don't spoil today for yourselves by worrying about tomorrow! Love and Hugs xxx

    5. Jackie I'm sorry to hear your sad news, you will all be there for your friend and will support each other, that's what your lunches are for. You know you are always welcome to chat on the blog and share your worries, that's what we are here for. Sending hugs to you both xxx

  9. Hi Barbara, sorry you're so busy. Happy for you that you got nominated for so many categories. I sat for ages trying to get my useless Asperger brain to deviate from the logical/think outside the box, to see how many categories I could put you down for 😉

    Congratulations Donna and Penny

    love Brenda xx

    1. Brenda, stop saying your brain is useless. Reading your posts proves that your brain is far from useless, it just works slightly differently than others. Your posts are so thoughtful and enjoyable to read, and you have done so much to help the rest of us to understand a little of the problems you face so bravely each day. Be proud of your achievements. xxx Maggie

    2. I couldn't put my thoughts any better than Maggie has done. My sentiments exactly Brenda!
