3 Year Blog Candy ~ My Favourite Things ♥

This is a sticky post and will remain at the top...please scroll down for any new posts.

I have made some cards, but they are all for occasions next week, and so I will wait until the recipients have opened them before posting the photographs on here.

And so, until then I have some of My Favourite Things to share with you :)

My little blog will be celebrating it's 3rd birthday on April 26th. 
I still can't quite believe it's been 3 years since my first shaky post, when I really had no idea what I was doing - some days I still wonder if I know what I'm doing!

The most amazing thing about blogging is the wonderful people you meet, and I have made some of the nicest, sweetest, bestest friends along the way. Friends from all over the world, that mean the world to me.
Friends that are multi talented, inspirational and some of them are stark raving bonkers...I won't name names, you know who you are lol.

And there are followers of my blog...I am constantly grateful for the readers that pop by to view my cards and read my ramblings, and so I have put together some candy, my way to say 'Thank You'.  

As always, I would rather split the candy up into smaller lots rather than have just one big one...I like to share the love around :)
I have gathered together My Favourite Things ~ papers/stamps/dies and embellies that I love...Pion Design, Maja Design, Whimsy, Magnolia, PTI, The Hobby House etc 

The first candy consists of:

Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics 6x6 paper pad. 60 sheets of double sided papers.
This is without a doubt the nicest pad of papers I've ever bought, I totally LOVE them all.

Whimsy Stamps - Wee Suzi....I loved being on the GDT for Wee Stamps during February...I just didn't want the month to end!  S'ok, I've almost stopped crying now :(

Magnolia - Sitting Tilda with Butterfly from the latest release.

Ivory Silk 4mm adhesive pearls.
Ivory Silk 6mm and 8mm adhesive pearl hearts.
Heart shaped diamante ribbon sliders and a selection of diamante spacers.

And some gorgeous lace in pink and blue which goes beautifully with the Maja papers.

The candy is open worldwide, though I am not liable for any customs charges that some countries impose.
Candy is open to my followers only, new and existing, but please have a conscience, don't become a follower just to enter!
There are no other can post it on your sidebar if you wish, but it's not a requirement.
In the interest of fairness (and because it's my blog and I can do whatever I like!) entries from 'candy only' blogs will be deleted.

Just click on the blue froggy to enter :)
Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xxx
