Blog candy

This post will stay at the top until 23:55 UK time 31 July
Please scroll down below this post for recent crafting

I started this blog on 1 March 2007, so it's been going now for over eleven years. Since the beginning of the blog I've made over 6,700 posts.

During this time I have made many crafting friends in blogland and am so grateful for everyone who visits and for the many comments that are so appreciated.

I used to occasionally offer some blog candy as a thank you to my visitors, but haven't done so for a long while so thought it's about time I did so.

So I'm offering this candy as a celebration of a successful blog and thanks to all those who have visited over the years and have been such an encouragement with your comments.

This is what the randomly chosen winner will receive:

Sheena Douglass 7" x 7" decorative stencil
Sheena Douglass Festive Fancies Little Elf die set
Crafter's Companion textures Splats and stains, Journal Jottings, Basket and Burlap
Die'sire Spruce Trees dies
Vintage Chic creations Design Pad 14.8 x 21 cm

Sarah Kay Best friends forever clear stamp
Couture Creations Ekene tree & frame dies

Love to Craft A Beautiful Life 6" x 6" paper pad, Accordion stickers, Wooden frames and Diamante charms

To be in with a chance to win, all you need to do is create a brief blogpost telling others about my candy - with a link to my post - or put a link in your sidebar if you prefer - and add your blogpost link to linky at the bottom of this post. Please only enter once.

The draw is open to anyone and everyone, whether you're a frequent visitor or here for the first time - and I'm willing to post worldwide, so distance is no problem.

If you're not already a follower of my blog I would love it if you became one.

I will keep this post on top until 23:55 UK time Tuesday 31 July 2018 and will do the draw the next day, using Don't forget, you've got to be in it to win it, so get linking now - lol!
