The Joy of Giving



THIS POST WILL STAY AT THE TOP UNTIL JUNE 6TH. PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWER POSTS.
UPDATED 25 MAY. AS OVER 100 LOVELY FOLLOWERS HAVE ADDED THEIR NAMES TO MR LINKY THERE WILL BE A MYSTERY SECOND PRIZE.

As June 5th is my wedding anniversary and June 6th is my blogaversary it's time for some yummy candy. I never realised what fun blogging would be nor how much I would learn by entering all the challenges and checking out your wonderful creations. I have made so many new friends through this wonderful blogland and really appreciate the time you take to visit me and leave such kind comments. I visit many of you as often as I can and leave comments but don't have as much time as I would like to visit.

To show my appreciation I have put together the following yummy goodies:
Sarah Kay clear stamp "The Joy of Giving" (shown above in detail)
Papermania Heather capsule collection A5 paper (my current fave paper)
Doodlebug limeade boutique assortment of papers
Woodware pastel flowers
3 sheets of Craftwork Cards sentiments
Forever Friends bear with cake and presents stamp
Pack of pink self adhesive gems
6 silver charms -ballet shoes, star, hearts and teddies
40 shaped brads including flowers, leaves, stars and tools
Pack of mixed spacers
Pink and black embellishment pack
Mini cupcake stamp
Papermania clear Christmas stamp set
25 stamped images including Sugar Nellie, Whiff of Joy and Lili of the Valley
Dovecraft mini Christmas stamp set
Pack of Craft dots

To enter my candy just follow the three simple rules.
  • You must be a follower of this blog.
  • Advertise my candy on your sidebar.
  • Enter via Mr Linky below.

Candy closes on June 6th and the winner will be announced on June 7th.

Happy Wedding Anniversary and Blogoversary dear.
I already put your candy in my left side bar :)
i am also your follower

i want to give you special quote for your happiness

“…I’D RATHER HELP THAN WATCH. I’D RATHER HAVE A HEART THAN A MIND. I’D RATHER EXPOSE TOO MUCH THAN TOO LITTLE. I’D RATHER SAY HELLO TO STRANGERS THAN BE AFRAID OF THEM. I WOULD RATHER KNOW ALL THIS ABOUT MYSELF THAN HAVE MORE MONEY THAN I NEED. I’D RATHER HAVE SOMETHING TO LOVE THAN A WAY TO IMPRESS YOU”.


PO BRONSON

Hi Marianne,
My name is Sue and I am in Nova Scotia Canada.
I am very new to scrapbooking as well as cardmaking/stamping. I guess you could say I am a "newbie"!
I have kind browsed through your site, but am going to sit and do some reading about you and yours.
I apologize that I have no clue on how do enter for the candy which looks wonderful, because I have no blog myself etc and have no idea to enter for anything like that. But that's fine, I'm more interested in checking out all of your work!
Sue
