Blogaversary - Candy

I started blogging on 13 March 2012. I've had such fun since that day and it was my lovely hubby who encouraged me to 'give it a go'. I've never looked back and have had such a wonderful time sharing my crafty adventures and made lots of new friends with similar interests. So I'd like to celebrate this happy day by offering a special blog candy to one lucky follower. I also plan to offer a bonus prize to two other followers. This candy is a thank you to all my pals in blog land, so please be a follower of my blog and please only join my blog if you do actually like and follow my work. Candy only entries won't be counted.

CANDY CLOSED. THANKS FOR YOUR ENTRIES :)
How to enter:
Leave me a comment on this post
Leave a link to your blog in your comment
Please also pop a pic of my blog candy in your sidebar 

The candy, includes a Lili of the Valley stamp set, some rhinestones, Sizzix embossing folders, Indigo Blue Christmas stamp, Margaret Tarrant pretty fairy decoupage papers, Candi minis and a stunning fairy stamp from Whimsy Stamps artist Cathy Delanssay.

The main prize also includes a £10 voucher to one of my favourite online craft stores ~ Live & Love Crafts, so you can buy some gorgeous Maja Design papers (my favourites) or anything else you'd love from Sandy's fabulous store. The final part of the main prize is a $20 voucher for one of my favourite digital stamps artists ~ Krista Smith of Saturated Canary. So there's something there to tempt everyone!


The candy will remain open until my birthday, which is March 30th. I will random draw the grand prize winner and two bonus prizes on this date. I get fed up when I'm busy with the kids of missing out on prizes, because I've been too busy to check back in, so I will be breaking the mould and sending each winner a message via their blog! Though do check back in if you're interested to know who won the goodies. I will post them as a footer on this same post.

Love and hugs to you all my lovely blogland pals. I'm so stoked to have found this fabulous hobby and to have made such wonderful friends around the globe through this hobby. I'm inspired by you all and love sharing my crafty adventures with you. Thanks for being part of my journey. Hugs, Wends x

Winners - Woohoo!

As you know, yesterday was my birthday, and it was awesome. 
Thanks for all your well wishes, I had a fab day. 
So fab, that I thought I'd share the love a little wider and
rather than draw 2 bonus prize winners, I'm going to draw 4!

Each bonus prize winner, will receive one small gift,
a stamp, some ribbon, a small die or some paper flowers
They will be random and a complete surprise, but hopefully, you will all love them.

If you should own the item already, or it's not to your taste, 
please just pay the love forward and gift to another crafter who would love it.

Down to business...

(after removing duplicate entries, there were 56 unique entries to my blog candy)

The Winner of the overall prize, which includes the physical prize 
(as depicted in the candy photo)
plus, a $20 Saturated Canary Voucher
plus, a £10 Live & Love Crafts Voucher

drum roll please....

Hey Wends - that's one generous candy collection you've got there! Great idea to contact the winner, too; last year (or the year before, can't remember) I won THE big prize at Altenew - it would have given me goodness knows how many stamps - and I didn't find out I'd won until months later, when it was way too late to claim the prize. Sending hugs xx

Marjeta said...
