My "Better Late Than Never" Blog Candy



Well I have FINALLY put together the blog candy I had promised back in um.....December I think it was?!?!?! It was to celebrate reaching 200,000 hits on my blog AND 700 followers - all of which happened in the week before Christmas. I have NO EXCUSE for being tardy but I hope the delicious parcel I will be sending someone will make up for it. I can't BELIEVE it's MARCH already!!!!

This is just to say THANK YOU to all my blog followers and visitors - and a HUGE apology for not reciprocating blog visits very well over the past few months. I always have good intentions and I LOVE to visit as most of my inspiration comes from these visits - but there are just never enough hours in a day!

There are some of my favourite things in this parcel - from some of my favourite stamp companies Tickled Pink Stamps, The Craft's Meow, Make it Crafty and Magnolia - to my favourite embellishments - glitter, bling, flowers and mesh ribbon. You can click on the picture for a better look at what's here...

To enter - just leave me a comment telling me some of YOUR favourite things and I'll post a winner on March 31st, 2012.

Hejka Dziękuję za szansę na wygraną :)
Bardzo mi trudno wybrać moja ulubiona rzecz . Kocham kwiaty , wycinaki a za pięknymi papierami wprost przepadam . Natomiast za stemple dam się pokroić .
Ale to co kocham nad wszystko - oprócz trójki moich dzieci i męża to poznawanie nowych ludzi i ich twórczości . Dziękuje Ci za to że mogę uczyć się od Ciebie .
Pozdrawiam cieplutko z Polski Mili

I love paper crafting for the different seasons and holidays, for friends, coworkers and family. I'm a total die-o-holic. I love all sorts of dies, but bags and boxes are probably my favorites. I'm working on seed packets for Easter giving, right now. I love stamping and water coloring my images with my dye based Stampin Up reinkers that go on forever in an artists palette. I love my tools like MS score board, Fiscars paper trimmer and MS bone folder. I could go on and on. LOL thanks for a chance to win an outstanding blog candy. Your card art is Amazing!
