Blog Candy from Me to You...

A very warm hello to everyone who visits my blog to read my posts and view my cards... I appreciate every visit, follower and nice comment that comes my way... 

I currently have 144 wonderful people who have joined my Creative Friends Gallery and have around 14937 hits on my blog.  These figures astound me each time I log on and once again, a huge thank you to those who have made this possible.

As my regular followers will know, I was very fortunate to win the very talented Elisabeth Bell's Definitive Blog Candy a few weeks ago.  I am pleased to report that the Candy has finally arrived (safely) and it just blew my mind when I got to view my winnings.  Gosh, it's like winning the flippin' Jackpot!  16 months ago I didn't own 1 single stamp and today I feel I have enough to last me a lifetime... (smile)

Because I feel so blessed, I have decided... ta-ra... to share some of my good fortune with 1 lucky person, so that she/he too can experience the joy I am feeling right now.

This is the Candy I have decided to offer one lucky individual... for now.  Yes... I have more than 1 gift to share with you all, but for now it is the Aladdin 1001 Nights Stamp Kit.

To qualify as an entrant for this Candy, there are a few minor stipulations.  You need to:
  • Be a Follower of my blog
  • Become a Follower, if you are not one already. Ideally I would like to push my Creative Friends list to over 150 and my Hits to over 15 000. 
  • Advertise this Blog Candy in the sidebar of your Blog until the draw date, which will be 17th September 2010
  • And finally, when leaving a comment tell me why you think you should win this Candy
This invitation is open worldwide. I will cover the postage and packaging fee and will add a few bits and pieces, including one of my own creations, with this stamp kit for you to enjoy!

Oh yes, and as I will be reading each comment, Sharon.org will be selecting the winner and not Random.org.  

Thanks for joining in the fun and good luck!

hugs Sharon x

Great candy and thanks for the chance to enter, Sharon. I would love to win this stamp set - reminds me of all the stories and fairy tales my mother told me when I was a kid. Just think how I can capture these memories on my cards. I posted your candy on my sidebar. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such kind comments.

Why? Because you love me? LOL I love the stamps and thank you for your kind generosity. I can only imagine your excitement when you receive your mail with the awesome, beautiful stamps in it!

Paula said...

Have added myself as a follower. Thanks too for sharing - I was given some WOJ stamps & have learnt so much using them. I discovered colouring only in Feb so had very few image stamps suitable - the Elisabeth Bell are so versatile. Now as to why I should win - I was offered a Guest post on the WOJ Challenge DT & will use these stamps for those projects if I should win them. It would be great as I don't have any of this year's images & this set is a little different.

MommyScraps said...

Hey Sharon! Thanks for offering up such a SWEET candy dish! :) Hmmmm... Why I think I should win the candy... Cause I absolutely LOVE Elizabeth Bell's stamps, but I TOTALLY can't afford to indluge in 'em as much as I'd like, lol! This is one of the kits that I drool over but know that I'd have to save up for a LONG time to get... I usually go on shopping binges online for my WOJ images when I'm mad at hubby lol.... SO, for now we're getting along and no shopping for me! :) Thanks again!

Anita said...

Thanks for so much wonderful inspiration! I'm happy you won such a great prize and think it's so kind of you to share with your followers.
I love WOJ images, although I don't own many. I also adore the sentiments in this kit - they would make any card special.

Carolyn said...

Sharon, I am new to your blog and I love it and your artwork. I am now a follower. I may not qualify because I do not have a blog to link to. I would love to win this set of stamps because they are so different and cute. Thanks for the chance.

Lorraine said...

Hi this is awesome candy thankyou for the chance of winning them,I would really love to win these stamps I am so in love with woj stamps and do try to buy 1 or 2 when I can but to be honest I would hate to say that I deserve them more than other people entering but what I will say is that they would be very much loved and married to an inkpad lol and I would have such joy making things with them

Hi Sharon

Firstly, I would like to congratulate you on your fabulous winnings and secondly I would like to thank you sooooo much for having the chance to win these gorgeous stamps. I personally don't have a single Whiff of Joy stamp in my collection but I am sure that these gorgeous stamps would have a welcome place among them.

Your cards are so wonderful and your blog offers such a wonderful array of inspiration to us all. I hope that I will be lucky enough to be the recipient but would like to wish everyone the same good luck too.

Hugs, Fae xxx

Oh Sharon, I keep coming back to your blog... I love this stamp set, and my "physical" (as opposed to digital) stamps collection is soooo low at the moment. I love this set, and I know I could do amazing things with it. I neeeeed it (ok, I'm just being greedy here), but it sure would be great to own this stamp set :)
