Blog candy to celebrate 200 posts - please scroll down for more recent posts.

Blog candy now closed.

I can't believe that I've almost reached 200 posts! It kinda snuck up on me so I've not had a chance to collect some goodies together for your stash.....BUT, I do have something that at least Pro Marker fans might be hankering after :)

Letraset recently brought out some Pro Marker Ultra-Fine Nibs that clip onto the finer pointed end of Pro Markers and magically transform them as shown below, they come with their own caps too:


This was me scribbling in excitement to compare the thickness - oh boy, are these great! Followed by a closer look at the nib itself and then the nib actually popped onto the end of the purple Pro Marker I was playing with:





I missed out on getting some a couple of times (from Joanna Sheen) so when they finally did have some in stock a few extra ones just 'happened to fall into my online shopping basket'. Some have already been promised to friends and I have five packs of three to give away - one pack for each of five winners to be chosen by using the 'Random Number Generator/Selection Thingy-Bob'. They aren't expensive but might just have a rarity value at the moment :)

All you need to do is to link into Mr Linky below - a comment would be good but not essential and there's no need to become a follower although it would be very kind of you to share the news on your own blog and of course to only enter once.

As for me, I just want to give a little something away to celebrate 200 postings....and also the fact that I actually managed to get hold of some of these little beauties to share!!

I'll do the draw on Sunday 24th July and will post to anywhere in the World. This post will remain at the top of my blog until then. Good luck!

Hi Di! I've only just recently found your brilliant blog and have only recently subscribed to it, but I'm so glad that I have found you. It's a lovely, fun, cheerful and inspiring craft blog. I don't know if I'm eligible for your blog candy giveaway, as I'm not a blogger myself (but a blog reader and fan), but regardless, thanks for being generous in your offering this. Well done you on 200 posts' worth of great crafty ideas and inspiration!

Thanks for the offer of some blog candy. Your follower thing isn't working though.

Di said...

.Yup, I do know that my follower gadget isn't playing ball at the moment....I've tried allsorts and would be so happy if anyone has a solution :) But then, neither are a lot of other people's followers showing up :( Yesterday it appeared for about five minutes - like a ghost ship in and out of the mist! It doesn't make any difference to chances of winning the nibs as I haven't asked people to be a follower to be eligible. Hugs, Di xx

Great blog candy - well done on your 200 posts!

mamapez5 said...

hey, blogger is finally playing ball and has allowed me to become a follower and to leave a comment. I mainly use copic markers because I like the brush end for colouring, but I have quite a few promarkers because they are much more vibrant colours, and sometimes that what I want. the new nibs do look a very good idea.
Well done on 200 posts! keep them coming. Kate x

Tammy said...

Congrats on 200 brilliant posts Di! Love the hedgie ones! Sounds like a great idea from Letraset to make better use of their pens. Don't add me to the draw as I don't do Promarkers or Copics or anything, just wanted to wish you well. Have a great weekend.
