Royal Wedding Giveaway


A Royal Wedding Souvenir
by The Sampler Girl

I have decided to have a giveaway. The gift being this pin pillow which I have stitched and finished, together with a Union Jack Keyring, and a commemorative box of Clotted Cream Fudge.

To enter - all you need to do is a leave a comment on this post.

If you want an extra entry then you should advertise this giveaway on your blog or website and leave another comment with the link to the post.

This giveaway is open to anyone in the world, but if it is doubtful that your country will let the confectionery through, then I can just send you the commemorative card off the front of the box with the other items.

I need to give you a closing date/time, so this will be 8am (UK time) on Friday 6th May.

Oh, what a lovely giveaway, Chris in honour of the lovely royal couple! I watched all the Royal Wedding events on the BBC today and DVR'd most of it so I can watch it again... It was so very touching and beautiful! What a wonderful dream come true! And I love Tanya's design and you've made it into a lovely pillow and what a wonderful treasure it will be for the lucky one who wins. And the fudge is delicious and the Union Jack keyring a wonderful keepsake! Please enter my name in your gorgeous giveaway and I'm sending you lots of stitchy hugs and positive thoughts...
Blessings always in stitches...

Jeanne said...

Sign me up! I love the souvenir pillow you stitched. I got up at 2:15 am today to watch Kate arrive at the Abbey and watch the ceremony. I got up 30 yrs ago to watch Charles & Diana so figured I might as well continue the tradition :). They do look happy for now and hope they make it work.

A lovely souvenier to commemorate a beautiful day! I think that 'everyone' felt a bit British yesterday! The world's blessings for Princess Diana's handsome son and his beautiful bride were surely felt! How proud she would have been! I like to think when the sun came out as the wedding began, Princess Diana was smiling with a full proud mother's heart!

anna s. said...

What a lovely idea, Chris! We watched the royal wedding yesterday on TV here in Poland. I'm sure I'd melt down tasting those fudges! And what a lovely commemorative pillow you made! Please count me in.

Oh Chris - that would be so awesome to have a commerative from Britain for the big wedding. I did get up very early Friday morning to watch. I thought she was a beautiful bride and I loved the dress.

Your stitched pillow is lovely. Hope you receive many comments on it. I'm not used to google accts. my e-mail is angela.mendel@comcast.net.

The wedding was so wonderful. We had to get up at 3am to watch it and were late for work since we couldn't leave the house until the first kiss.

I would love to be entered in your drawing. Thank you for offering it. I recorded the coverage of the wedding and then was sadly disappointed in the coverage by the station I recorded. But everything I did see was lovely. My husband and I were in London three years ago and visited Westminster Abbey so that makes it more special to me.

Good day.
I would like to be apart of the give away opportunity.
I did not get up at 1am, I got up at my usual 0630 and watch most of the day the wonderful history & the wedding. I sure hope Kate will be able to adjust to Royal life. And I am pleased that William is protective of her, I think that will make a difference.

I thoughly enjoyed the wedding and I think all concerned looking wonderful. - Sandra.
