Birthday Blog Candy!!!!

This post is staying at the top till 20/11/08- please scroll down for latest posts :)

*** *** *** *** ***

Hullo!!! I am an enormous 41 years old today (8th Nov), and to "celebrate" (huh!) I thought I'd offer up some Blog Candy.

Here's how it works:
To be in with a chance of winning what's in the photo, just add your comment to this post. Then mention it on your own blog and give a link. I shall keep this post at the top till my little brother's birthday, which is 20th November. On that day I'll draw a name and let the winner know! I will post internationally, so come on, join in!
Here's what's on offer (click to make larger, if you want a closer look around!):
List of goodies:
Pile of assorted papers: 8x8 inch and 6x6;
4 packs clear stamps (alphabet, swirls, borders and frames);
pack of assorted stamps from Crafty Individuals;
4 sheets of sticky peel-offs;
pack of die-cut tags, labels, frames and other shapes;
pack of Paperchase 12 assorted coloured blank cards and envelopes;
pack of Paperchase metal heart shape clips;
+ Joanna Sheen catalogue thrown in for fun :)
I might add a few things as time goes on, too :)

Have fun and good luck!!!!!

*** *** *** *** ***
  • Crop Til You Drophave a lot of sale items right now, PLUS an extra 20% OFF EVERYTHING for the month of November- just put "NOV2008" as the coupon code at the checkout.

Happy Happy 41st Birthday Helena.
I hope Bob and Dilly have treated you to a wonderful Birthday!

Since I am not really a crafty type person I will let someone else have a chance at winning your Birthday bling.

I just wanted to come here and wish you all the best in the coming year.

Sigh----------oh to be 41 again.
Enjoy yourself, you young thing!!
