well today is my birthday ~surprise surprise ~all the fours today!! where do the years go??? why am i not wearing pearls and twinset?? and sensible shoes?? isn`t that what ladies do once they hit their 40`s?? actually i do like to wear sensible shoes, don`t like the loud "pop" music in clothes shops and am gradually turning into a grumpy old women!!! (when you keep remembering the "good old days"!!!)
well to celebrate my birthday and the fact i have over 12,000 hits ~i thought i would add some blog candy to be won today. i`m calling it my "bits and bobs" ~ just a box of items we sometimes need when creating , some 12x12 papers, vellums, A4 papers ,ribbons and embellishments ~also some stamped images (will stamp what ever you would like , (i use watercolour card) have shown my new cuddlybuddly ~but the choice is yours) ~can get a better look when you click on the pic!!
so , to enter for my blog candy, all you need to do is :~ when you have created your girly card/or anything creative with some glitter on it (you know how i love my glitter) from now until the 28th of september, just leave a link to it on my blog and a link on your blog to mine telling everyone about my candy!! there is no need to make a card just for a chance to win some candy ~ just include any card you have made and you are showing on your blog!!
i will put all the names into a hat and my boys will select a name!!
cannot wait to see your girly, glittery cards!!
hope you have a great day , byeeeeeeeeeeeeee xx

thanks , xx

Just call me G said...

Ohhhhhhhhh thats a surprise,

I came over to wish you a Happy Birthday and find that you are the one giving presents!!!

I'm at the double 4 age.. and love sensible shoes... have been known to want the cinema to turn the sound down a bit.. ( tho I was in my 20's then!) Regularly moan about how things have changed!!!

Anyway forget all that and just enjoy the day... and it looks like a nice day out instead of rain.. YAY!!!!

I'll come back and do something about entering the candy..

Hi Vanessa,
Happy belated birthday! Hope you had a good one! and congrats on 12,000 hits! Thanks for the chance to win this great candy!
I will soon be 40 and have just bought my first pair of sensible shoes and at a party the other night caught myself commenting about the music being too loud to talk properly! I used to dance all night and not worry about talking too much! how times have changed!
Anyway I have put a card and a link on my blog Here
Good luck everyone!

Sharon said...
