Six Year Blogoversary Candy

Hello there, on the 4th August 2007 I started this blog. I didn't know if I would get any views or if anyone would like my cards but I wanted to give it a go. Six years later and here I am. I have had over twenty eight million views to this little blog. I cannot believe it! 

Thank you to all my visitors, whether you pop in occasionally or follow me regularly; whether you have been with me since the beginning or whether you found me recently. I am grateful to every one of you. 

If you do follow me regularly, you will know that I haven't been well the last month and a half, which is why this is late. I am still not recovered and on sick leave but I am hoping I will be back soon. To celebrate my six years in this blogging community I am giving away a little candy ...


Up for grabs is some Clearly Besotted goodness: Building Blocks, A Little Sentimental, Butterfly Wishes, Butterfly Wishes addictions stamp sets and Butterfly Wishes die set. Plus a couple of extra items that are not pictured (apologies for the poor quality of the photo it was taken on my iPhone!)

I am aware that CBS are very popular so you may already have these and for which I do apologise. If you do have them please still enter but leave me a comment below and I can sort some other sets or something else out for you!

This giveaway is open worldwide and will close on 10th September 2013 at 09.00 BST. Only one entry per person please. Please leave your link below using the blue InLinkz frog, URLs are not mandatory for those who do not have blogs so shouldn't be a problem, but please link your blog if you have one so I can visit you!

Thank you again for all your support as well as all the wonderful get well wishes I have received. You guys are great! :o)

  21. PS: it would be nice if you could be able to comment with just the name and e-mail address, like for the giveaway submission, it's much easier :) I don't like having to log on to my account with my full name/info and almost gave up on commenting today, instead I used a "trash account". (This is just an info for you, you don't have to approve/publish this, but I thought you might like to know)
