A Giveaway! Want some foil?

Since Ive learnt such alot from cybering around on folks blogs and been lucky enough to win a couple of gifts in Giveaways, Ive decided to offer a Giveaway myself.

The batch of foils here are up for grabs if anyones interested. They will work with card, paper and fabrics so you should get plenty of use out of them.

They will iron onto fabrics beautifully, but do remember to lay a piece of freezer paper over it to protect your iron.  You only need to iron the wrong side, the dull side, once and you never do it again...but no point in wasting an hour cleaning the blessed iron when you can avoid the mistake in the first place! <<<< learn by my mistakes lol

If you put glue stick on your surface, or paint, sponge or dab pva on, the foil will transfer, either with the heat of an iron, or by firm pressure. Using the back of a spoon is a good way of burnishing the foil down, just like you might use it if you were 'flower spooning', like I did in the summer with flowers and leaves.

This foil can be expensive to buy in packs and so this is a useful gift for someone. Im happy to post overseas, since I know how disapointing it can be if the giveaway is limited to one side of any ocean, besides its light enough, it wont cost an arm and a leg!

The gold foil is about 2.5' wide so a useful width for larger projects.
There's at least 2 mts of gold and assorted narrower strips of other colours as you can see.

Im going to give a good length of time for folk to sign up to this, so the cut off date will be noon UK time on 14th November, and I will post out as soon as I have an address to post it to!

I dont have a large following so by leaving a message and email if necessary please, you stand a very good chance of winning! :)
But please tell anyone else you know that theres a chance to have some seems only fair!
