Hubby's Non-Birthday Birthday Candy?

This post will stay at the top. Please scroll down for any newer posts, thank you.

As promised, I'm back with a little blog candy in honour of my lovely hubby's birthday on Thursday. The hardest thing was deciding what to put in the candy.
My first thought was a set of the new Sassy stamps, but I have no idea when the next set is due out..Karen, it's been a while since the last release and I'm getting a little twitchy!
Next thought..Jingle Bells and Tinkle Bells..these images are divine and I can't wait to get my inky mitts on them all myself, but they aren't due out just yet.
I've given myself a headache trying to think of something to offer as candy, so hubby's non-birthday birthday candy is Christmas themed. Does that make sense? No? Well my thinking was that on his birthday (August 25th) it will be exactly 4 months until Christmas and I know there are lots of crafters who are making a start on their festive cards.

This candy is a bit of a mix, a couple of my favourite things from last Christmas mixed with some new goodies released recently for this years celebrations.
Sorry about the quality of the photo, Mr Sun had gone to bed.

So the candy consists of:
Sugar Nellie Stamps:
Simply Sassy Secret Santa
Simply Sassy Christmas Kisses
Snow Buddies
Furry Friends
My Mind's Eye- Lost & Found Christmas 6x6 pad.
Authentique - Wonder 6x6 pad.
Christmas Dance
Toboggan for Two
Ski Jump.

From last year:
Whimsy Stamps - Holiday Ticket Sentiments plus the Ticket Die.
Whimsy Stamps - Winter Letter Seals 

Everything is brand new, stamps are unmounted except for the Whimsy ones which come pre-mounted.
Rules of entry:
Candy is my way of saying thank you to my followers and those who kindly leave a comment. Even though I struggle to find time to leave the comments I should, there are still plenty of lovely bloggers who still visit me and leave me some love. So with that in mind, candy is open to my current followers only, and is open worldwide though I am not liable for any duties/customs charges that some countries impose.
Candy will stay open until Monday 29th August 2011 at 6pm BST.

  24. I hope you manage to have a lovely day together & that it is not wholly taken up with sorting out the consequences of Hal's results. This is not a very little candy & well thought out as always.
    Take care - no doubt the C-word will appear faster than the blink of an eye. St R is trying to sort out the lounge after the builders - managed to skewer a hand on the carpet gripper rods & various shades of black/blue ensue.
    Jag har den äran att gratulera på födelsedagen.
    Translated that is literally - I have the honour to congratulate on the birthday. Think "HAPPY BIRTHDAY PHIL" is much simpler.
