Birthday Blog Candy!!

*** This post will stay at the top until this Blog Candy closes, please scroll down to see what I have been creating!!  ***

I've been collecting bits and bobs for a while now, with the intention of putting together a blog candy giveaway to celebrate my recent blogaversary (it passed me by without me noticing... silly me!!), but as my youngest son, HB and I all have birthdays within 6 weeks of each other this seemed as good a time as any to actually collect all the goodies and schedule the post!! 

It seemed a nice way to celebrate with all my blogging friends, old and new, and to thank you all for all the love and support you have shown since I took the step of actually posting things (as opposed to stalking people looking at others work, like I used to!!)... I'm not sure HB will be that impressed with me giving away things on what is supposed to be his birthday but hey ho!! :-D

I've tried to include some of my favourite-ist things, that I adore using, some of these were SO tough to give away!! So before I change my mind and pop one or two bits back in my stash... the giveaway includes (deep breath!!)

Marianne Creatables - Set of Three Snowflake Dies LR0123
Lili of the Valley - Christmas Surprise unmounted stamp
Nellie Snellen - Frog On Flower clear Stamp
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Wellies Robyn clear stamp
Tim Holtz - Grungepaper
Woodware- Borders and Buttons Chippies
Car shaped bare chipboard mini-book (I think this may be Maya Arts, but not totally sure!!)
One pack snowflake charms
One pack Snowflake Die Cuts
One metre each of 30 ribbons - a huge variety of ribbons in all kinds of colours, widths, finishes (satin, organza, lace, grosgrain, ruffled edge, wired edge) and patterns (plain, checked, striped and saddle stitched)

And I may pop a few bits and bobs in there as we go :-D... and I'm happy to post to anywhere in the world too!!

So what do you have to do to be in with a chance to win this lovely lot??

1.  Become a follower, if you aren't already!!
2.  Leave your name and a link to your blog with the little blue froggy thingy
3. Pop a picture of the candy with a link back to this post on your sidebar

That's it!!  Easy peasy huh??

I'll close the blog candy on the 16th August and use one of the random number generators (or a small child, if I'm in a technophobic mood!!) to pick the winner on the 17th August.Good luck!!Sue
