A Little Bit Of Candy

It's definitely been one of those years when my crafting time has taken a back seat, due to one thing or another. An illness within the family is my priority now and so I'm not at home much these days. 

My blog has been neglected along with my friends, my commenting has fallen by the wayside, my inbox is full of unanswered emails and although I do feel bad about it, my family will always come first, as it should.

So I have a little candy to say 'thank you', especially to those that still pop on here even though I don't return the favour. 

These are all things I love...I must love them because I have two of them all! 

Stempelglede "Follow Your Heart" set of unmounted rubber stamps.
Stampin' Up! "Express Yourself" set of foam mounted stamps.
Go Kreate dies, large frames Frilly #10.
Tattered Lace die - Rose.
Joy! Crafts dies, Feathers.
La-La Land Crafts die - Stitched Scallops.

All items are brand spanking new and in need of some being taken out of the packets and used!
Candy is open worldwide (though I am not liable for any customs charges that some countries impose). 
As I said earlier, the candy is a small thank you and I would like it to go to a follower or friend, whether they have a blog or not, so no candy only blogs please.

Just leave a comment on this post.
(I moderate all my comments just because I get so much spam so don't worry if your comment isn't published immediately, I will publish them the next time I get home and on my computer)

Thanks for everything ♥
Love 'n' hugs

  29. Hi Elaine sorry been MIA from your comments had so much on with brothers house explosion and helping feed boys with no kitchen at house. What lovely candy and good luck to everyone that enters. Hopeyou are having a restful weekend and is that cat now part of the family tee hee

  30. Hi Elaine, my heart sank when I read your blog today, why does life have to be so cruel, just when you think family are all doing well something happens to turn your life upside down again. Yes, family should always come first but do be careful not to run your self ragged, your body and mind can only take so much. Your beautiful craftroom will still be there when your family are all in good health again. Kind regards Trish

I really hope that things improve soon and I will be thinking of you and sending you positive thoughts during this tough time. Your cards will be missed but it is completely understandable that your family comes first. Thank you so much for your generosity in offering such fantastic candy! I also wanted to say thank you for supporting the image I shared on Facebook for World Mental Health Day - it really meant a lot to me! x
