woyww 5th candy

WOYWW 183 Blog Candy Updated!


Here it is – the first part of the promised blog candy.  To celebrate moving into my new Webhome and getting reasonably proficient at running it (?) I thought it would be nice to encourage followers new and old! So I thought about what to include……..how about some staples (versamark and brilliance inks, cut and dry foam) and some different things (art parts, pricking stencil, mask) and then something challenging (alterable tissue box cover)………….. So, the first part has the following:

Brilliance Graphite Black ink pad

Verasmark ink pad

Prima Journalling notecards – Romance Novel and Fairytale

Studio 490 Art Parts – leaves

Queen Kat Designs – Time Flies stamp

Cut and Dry foam

Bunch of mulberry paper roses various sizes

Marianne Designs Pricking and Embossing Stencil

TCW Mini Flower Frenzy 6″X6″ Mask

Wooden Tissue box cover for altering

Stack of primary colour brads and eyelets

Prima Say it in Crystals (gold/bronze)

Tim Holtz District Market  matchbook notepad

This is how it works (you could have up to 4 entries in the draw!):

Leave a comment – 1 entry

Become a follower – 1 entry

Already a follower before this post – 1 entry (extra, cause you read the previous posts!!)

Put it on your blog (and leave me a note in your comment) – 1 entry

Hope fully, this little version is small enough for a sidebar (ok, so not as proficient as I thought I was!! LOL!!!))







Part Two- because I don’t trust the post on the run up to Christmas, I will run this till Tuesday January 9th and announce the winner on WOYWW 10th January. When (if?) I reach 15 followers, I will add some more to the candy and again at 25 followers if we get to that number before 9th January.

My job takes over in November/December but once I’ve done my handover (19th December), and got over Christmas, life gets back to some sort of normality so I’m hoping that having more followers will encourage me to remember to take photos to show what I make and also to make more “playtime” instead of working so many hours so I have more to show you!! 2013 needs to be a year of less work, more (art)play!!!!

So if you want to become a follower, you can use either the Network Blogs in the sidebar on the right or the grey “follow” button at the bottom of the page (on the right too!!).

Apologies to our WOYWW leader, Julia, for a long post which we’re not supposed to do on a Wednesday, but I think she’ll forgive me this once as I am normally not too bad!!! If you want to catch up on all the other WOYWWers and visit their play spaces, you can visit Julia’s blog here for a list of links!

    You are so generous with your give-away! I think I followed when you set up the new blog so that’s one entry for me, and another for this comment!! I have added the pic to my sidebar too.

    Thanks for the candy! I can’t follow as my followy bit is broken, which means I won’t know if I won any candy anyway, lol!

    I’ve got some retro stash to give away on my blog too.

    I enjoy reading your post anyway but as a non cardmaker, please don’t enter me into your draw, it wouldn’t be fair!
    Keep up the good work :)

    I think your candy is vey generous. I also think that people will follow you anyway, a good blog is a good blog! I love the background you’ve used to photo your candy.

      Thankyou Julia – that is praise indeed!!
      The photo background is Tim Holtz tissue wrap stuck onto some white card!! Simples 😉

    That is an impressive bog candy offering! wow!

    Not sure what networked blogs means…don’t like facebook and rarely read it and the only other option is to follow by email… but I like to just sit down and read the people I follow all at once. I don’t want my email any fuller than it already is…
    Do you have other options…could you offer something that people can read in google reader or???
