Candy thank you

Christmas Candy.................Hard for me to believe, but it's six months since I started my blog and I have been amazed what a friendly community blogland is and all the wonderful people I have met along the way.

As a small thank you for all the support I have received I have decided to offer some candy, nothing wild or huge just some Christmas goodies I thought might be useful. It occurred to me recently from some of your kind comments that I am very fortunate to have a such a varied collection of stamps so as part of my candy I have stamped and embossed........you got it right versafine and detail clear........a selection of Christmas images including Penny Black, Hero Arts, Stampendous, JudiKins, Denami, Hobby Art. The picture shows just a selection.

I want this to be fun and open to everyone, so there are no rules such as having to become a follower - although it is of course always lovely to welcome new friends and you get enterted twice if you do - and I am happy for you to add a link back here on your side bar to give others the chance to have a go, but it's all totally up to you. I will enter the names of everyone who comments on any of my posts from now until 24th September and will select a winner using Random Org. I am happy to ship outside the UK. Here's what I have included:

40 different stamped Christmas images
6 sheets of mixed stamped Christmas greetings
32 6x6 sheets Christmas DP's and vellum's
5 x 1.5m red ribbon
3m gold ribbon
3m red/green ribbon
Pack clear crystals
Pack silver bows and beads
Sticky pads
Roll wacky tack
2 brass Christmas stencils
20 cards and envelopes
2 packs Tara flowers

And.......a bag of sweets........not in the picture I opened them so need to buy more, but all important when crafting, helps concentration - that's my excuse anyway.

  1. Hi Brenda,
    Your right I'm one of those people who don't have many stamps so I'd be really happy with so many stamped images. You know i'm already a follower and I've linked your candy on my blog. Great candy and thanks for a chance to win.
    Happy crafting

  3. oh, Brenda, this is WONDERFUL candy... i think you've inspired me to offer something similar - i have a large collection of stamps as well (some of which RARELY get inked), and people are forever saying what a great variety i use in my cards!

    thanks for the inspiration - and while i may have a ton of stamps, not many are holiday-themed, and your awesome candy would kick-start my chrimbo cardmaking... i shall link you up!

Oh bless you Brenda you are an inspiration and it is always a delight to drop by + you are such a kind and encouraging blog friend your kind comments always give a lift and knowing you only speak as you find :) hugs.

  13. Hi Brenda, what fantastic candy! Giving away the stamped images is a great idea - will be such a time saver for the winner, given that Christmas will be here all too soon. Congratulations on your first 6 months. Your blog is so lovely and friendly that I'm sure it will continue to go from strength to strength.

  22. Hi Brenda

    What a fantastic prize this will be for one lucky winner. All those lovely images to play with! It must have taken you ages to stamp and emboss all of those (and to clean your stamps again afterwards!).

    What is Wacky Tack - I haven't heard of that before. What do you do with it?

    Have a good weekend. (Pancake batter mixed and cooking just about to start).

    Love Jules xx
