Blog Candy ~ Give Away ~ To Celebrate My Return To Work

Hi every one, i returned to work ten days ago following a nine month period of sickness and thought i might celebrate by setting a challenge and giving away some gorgeous blog candy..... Are you up for it?????????????? I had a flare up of Rheumatiod Arthritis and Fibromyalgia following lots of things going wrong in our lives(stress affects both conditions), it was a rubbish year for us as a family but hopefully 2008 will bring contentment if not happiness and i've started a blog which i am really enjoying. I luvvvvvvvvvv the challenges and fingers crossed, touch wood and anything else that's good luck this year is going OK so far apart from a couple of minor hiccups.....

Anyway on to the important stuff............... below you'll see a picture of the candy i'm offering.... i've never done this so if i'm doing it wrong you'll have to let me know.... I'd like to set a challenge for this little lot and the theme will be WELL WISHES so THINKING OF YOU ~ GET WELL SOON cards sending well wishes ... i hope i'm not confusing you..... Now the horrid bit.......

The Rules: there is only one really you can't combine this creation with other challenges that have prizes or candy attatched to them ~ i say this because it's the only thing i don't agree with, by all means combine it with a challenge that has no prize attached ~ i say this because i think it's unfair for somebody to enter one card into two or more challenges with prizes attached to them, so many crafters enter one card per challenge and go to the effort of creating beautiful cards and layouts then another crafter enters one card for three challenges and wins the prize or candy and i think that's unfair..... Sorry i'm not being mean honest.....

One other thing i'm more than willing to send this candy anywhere in the world but if you live outside the UK you'll have to pay the postage... it's nice candy though....

Now for the really important bit here's a list of every thing in the box.......

Sugar Nellie Stamp - It's The New Bunny (I've Added A Piece Of EZ Mount So That You Can Use It Straight Away....)

Magnolia Stamp - The New Farm Girl (She's Sitting Down & Is Already Mounted On EZ Mount)

15 Prisma Color Pencils - 2 Light Peach - 1 Peach - 2 Sienna Brown - 1 White - 2 Poppy Red - 1 True Blue - 1 True Green - 1 Grass Green - 1 Pink - 1 Orange - 2 Lemon Yellow (They Blend Beautifully)

1 Any Year Calendar

3 Packs Chip Board Die-Cuts (Swirl Accents - Slides - Clip Boards)

1 Pack HOTP Brad Buddies (Baby Girl)

1 Pack Making Memories Funky With Fibers (Basic)

1 Pack Dovecraft 6x6 Paper Pack (72 Sheets - Birthdays)

2 Packs Sticko Label Lingo (Dymo labels - Summer & Graduation)

2 Packs Craft Work Rub-ons (Boy Meets World - Girl Meets World)

1 DCWV Mini Album (8x8)

1 Pack Doodlebug Sew Easy Rub-on Stitches (Lily White)
