200th post blog candy

Hello lovely peeps and welcome to my 200th blog post :)


That means it's candy time  !!


Well, I've been busy in the 7 months since my 100th post.  I have:
  • been one of the runners up in the Card Designer of the Year competition in Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine (coincidentally, the advent calendar on my 100th post was part of my competition entry)
  • joined the lovely (and slightly mad) ladies on the Polkadoodles Design Team, thank you girls for making me so welcome
  • seen my very first Design Team (Lili of the Valley Design Collective) disbanded which was obviously a sad occasion for me but I'm so grateful to have been on the team and made so many wonderful crafty friends (EDIT - the Design Collective is still going, but with reduced involvement as there is a new core Design Team)  
  • been chosen as a member of Leonie Pujol's very first Design Team - I was (and am) chuffed to bits as I have been a fan of Leonie since her QVC days.
  • joined the Sugar Nellie Blog Challenge team for a 4-month stint, as well as having Guest Designer spots at Crafting By Designs, All Dressed Up and Color Throwdown
Wow, no wonder the year is going by so quickly :D

And through all this I've had support from you, my fabulous followers. It means so much to have you visit little ol' me, and your wonderful comments really make my day. As a thank you I'm having a huge giveaway worth over £80.

The dies:



Thank you to Craftasmic in Taunton for donating the Cottage Cutz Ice Cream die, and Crafters Companion for the Leonie Pujol dies, two of which are from her latest launch. The heart is especially useful as you can roll up the spiral parts to make 3D flowers.

The Stamps:



There is no packaging included with the 'Off She Flew' stamps but this is a picture of it


The Paper:



This is a full 8x8 paper pad from Lili of the Valley which has been discontinued and includes one of my favourite wood effect paper designs.

The rest:



A few embellishments, including 100 dew drops and a .005 black fineliner pen which I use on practically everything (yours is new and unused!)
I will also include a £5 Polkadoodles gift certificate for the winner
