My Blog Candy - NOW CLOSED

Well here it is, I was going to wait until I was nearer the 10,000 hits to my blog, but what I will do is run this candy until the counter hits 10,000 or just over (just in case I miss the actual 10,000th hit).

Here's what the winner will get:

Dufex Border Stickers

Stamptivity Stamp Set (SMD519)

Dovecrafts 6x6 Designer Paper Pack - A Hint of Pink

Set of 5 Craft Works Ribbons

Set of 4 wood mounted corner stamps

Selection of Fabric Flowers

Selection of Brads

Dew Drop Brilliance Ink Pad - Starlite Silver

Artoz Charm Paperclips

Selection of Foiled Die-Cut Flowers

Selection of Gems & Charms

3 Felt Butterflies

Die-Cut Glittery Butterflies and Dragonflies (2 of each)

As well as reaching the 10,000 hits if my blog followers list also hits 100+ then I will throw in an extra surprise candy for one runner-up picked at random from the followers list, it could be something I've made or more crafty stuff, you wont know until you recieve the runner-up 'Followers' candy.

Here's what you have to do:

Other than crafting one of my other hobbies is coarse fishing, I'd like you tell me what is your next favourite pastime/hobby other than crafting, by leaving me a comment on this candy thread. Then please put a link/post on your blog about my candy and spread the word, feel free to use the candy picture on your blog if you'd like.

This candy will end at 10,000 hits or just over, where a winner will be picked at random from the comments made. If 100+ followers is reached by 10,000 hits a runner-up will also be picked at random from the 'FOLLOWERS LIST'. Please only enter once, any duplicates will be removed. This candy is open to all and I will post worldwide.

***Becoming a follower IS NOT compulsary to enter this candy, I'd rather you followed my blog because you want to not because you have to.**

I really can't believe that I've nearly reached this milestone of hits to my blog in such a short time, thank you to everyone who regulary visits my blog and for all of your wonderful comments, they are very much appreciated, Thank You xxx

Fab candy Joanne! Now then, wot else do i like doing apart from making cards? This is difficult cos cardmaking is now a way of life not a hobby lol!

Congratulations on so many hits!!

My 2nd hobby is reading. I love to read and spend a lot of money on new books, even more then on stamps... weird now that I'm writing this down I suddenly realise that I always think my stamping hobby is too expensive but books are too!! So, it isn't weird that I will spend more in the future!
Thanks for helping me realising this, it helps me not feeling guilty anymore when I buy more paper or stamps :)

Hi Joanne

I don't know if I am allowed to take part in your candy seeing as I don't have a blog. Nevertheless I wanted to tell you that I enjoy surfing through your blog and looking at all the beautiful cards you create. As your style is completely different to my own (and the tiny fact that I am still a beginner) this is especially inspirational.
So, thanks and I will definitely continue to come back.

Kind regards
