Celebration candy

This post will stay at the top until 30th June. Please scroll down for newer posts.

Here I am, back as promised, with some yummy candy. What am I celebrating? Firstly my Ruby Wedding on Sunday. Yes I was only 1,5,10, oh alright 18 when I married my lovely hubby Graham and here we are 40 years later. Where those 40 years have gone I have no idea and I certainly don't feel like I can possibly be 58.

Secondly it's my 2nd blogaversary on Monday. Two years ago when my good friend Lynsey was persuading me I really needed a blog I took some convincing. Lynsey said it's really easy to set up, here's the code to add a card, if you need any help just shout. So off I went and started a blog, discovered HTML codes and have loved having a blog. It's been an amazing discovery through making so many friends, achieving over 800 followers, being on some wonderful DTs and making TV samples for Crafter's Companion.

This last week has been a very busy one for me as I have decided to move my craftroom from the dining table to one of our spare bedrooms. I've been planning the room, looking at furniture, buying paint (lilac of course) and lights etc. I also have more samples to make for another new Crafter's Companion launch and will be celebrating our anniversary all weekend. This has meant I have had very little time for visiting and commenting this week, apart from my DT comments, so apologies.

I have chosen some really yummy goodies to give away to one lovely follower.
Papermania Boysenberry paper pack (yes I'm giving away lilac paper!)
2 Sizzix embossing folders
Squiggle Miss Evie frills and flowers (I've stamped mine to show you the image)
64 Prima pink flowers
Reel of ribbon
100 pins
100 gems
4 Promarkers
Patterned card candi

All you have to do is:
  • Place a pic of my candy on you sidebar with a link back to my blog
  • Be a follower
  • Enter via the link below.
Candy closes 30 June and is open to anyone with a blog (except candy only blogs). Good luck and thanks for all your support, encouragement and lovely comments over the last 2 years.
