Candy to be won........four times over

The Summer Collection
30 sheets assorted DP's, Judikins, Inkadinkadoo, Magenta etc., stamps, Marvy markers and wet looks, flowers, cardstock, ribbons.

Good Morning everyone and yes I have some candy for my lovely blog friends. But there is a twist.........did you think I was just going to let you just add your name and hope, oh no........not that easy this time.

I know it's really really mean of me, but I was so taken with the little competition my lovely blog friend Lisa Jane ran when she went on her hols, I thought I would do something similar.......but unlike Lisa, I am going to make you work for the clues. So this is how it works........

The Christmas Selection

12 sheets K & Co plain and foiled DPs. Marvy Markers and Wet Looks, Stamps Happen, Inkadinkadoo, Funstamps, Anna Griffin etc., stamps, Flower Soft, cardstock, gems, ribbons, flowers, emboss powder.

I am going to be away for sixteen days on a brand new great big boat on the high seas, I'm not going to tell you where exactly, that would spoil all the fun, but I will tell you that I will be in the Mediterranean most of the time, or pretty close to it............

Floating Hotel

Our pad for the holiday will be a suite right at the top back.......where you can see the white corner section coming down the boat......our very favourite place on a boat where the views are fabulous.

On each of the Nine posts I have scheduled while we are away I will give you some clues and all you need to do is leave me a comment on each post with the answer where I am that day. It's a bit of a geography lesson, but I have Googled each one to check it out and the answers are all there for you, if you can't guess from my clues. And I have even added a picture or two to help you along the way. I will draw the winners on Monday 9th August.

Another Little Collection

15 sheets DP's, 10 sheets patterned vellum, assorted unmounted stamps, Keepsake emboss board.

There are four lots of candy up for grabs, a Christmas collection, a Summer collection and two smaller prizes to help spread the love a bit further. So four winners, which Random Org., will select from all of those who get the answers right. To be in with a chance this is all you have to do:

1) Leave me a comment to tell me where you think I am that day.

2) Do the same on each of the NINE posts as they pop up on my blog.

3) Be or become a follower.

4) Spread the word on your own blog and have fun.

And the Fourth Collection

12 sheets assorted DP's, Keepsake board, set of four Laura Ashley stamps.

I have really enjoyed putting this all together and I hope you will enjoy taking part just as much, the first clue will be tomorrow...........

But before I finish I must not forget our new Challenge at Polkadoodles where Enfys would like to see Christmas in July. This was a perfect opportunity to use the new Paper Boutique Christmas CD which us lucky DT girls have been playing with for a few weeks prior to it's launch at the end of this month. I made a stepper card, cut three different sizes fairies from the CD, added lots of glitter, stamped sentiment from the Christmas stamp set and a border punched from Martha Stewart embossed snowflakes.
