Blog candy!

Oh well, the blog is very pink but I like it better then the interim template. Still need time to have a good old search but this will do for now. So, here's the blog candy I referred to. I've done more than 300 posts and am still a gnats whisker off also have over 100 Followers. Edit: So funny, since I said over 100 followers, someone has deleted themselves. Now, I wonder who that could be? :)

Whilst making wedding stationery samples I indulged in a much-longed-for set of Heart Shaped Spellbinders Nestabilities - err, twice over! A parcel I was waiting for took 10 days to get here - way too long in my book and all the more annoying as the shop is within easy driving distance from here. Karen will know exactly which shop I mean :( It took so long that I thought I must have hopped out of the website without completing the purchase. After searching my emails I couldn't find a confirmation so I bought another set on eBay:( Yup, the original parcel did turn up and I now have two sets! They are lovely dies and look great if you run them through an embossing folder after cutting them - like this:
Not that the embossing shows up very well in this photo :( These are the unopened Classic Hearts on offer as blog candy:
All you have to do is to add yourself to Mr Linky below. No need to become a Follower or even comment, although comments are always lovely. And, if you don't have a blog and still want to join in - just leave me a comment and I'll add you into Mr Linky. I'll post to anywhere in the World - that's one reason I'm offering this candy now - we go on holiday shortly and I want to post these off beforehand. So, this post will stay at the top of my (very pink for now!) blog until midnight on Tuesday 1st November. That gives me a few days to find out where to post them off to before we hop off in search of a little bit of sunshine - with luck!

Oh, and unlike the Pro Marker Ultra Fine Nibs candy, there's only one set of these on offer so there will be just one winner.

Thank you for allowing us to benefit from your double order. I do like the card you have made,even if the embossing does not show up too well on the photo. We can imagine that. Congratulations on you 300 posts and I am sure you will soon make the 100 followers.

Karen said...

I just typed a long comment and it didn't enter it. Thanks for sharing your Blog Candy over-purchase!!! I know which shop you mean and must admit to not having been back there since we last met there. Love (no pun intended!) the hearts!

Annie said...

Hi Di. Only enter me into the draw if they will fit into the cuttle bug that Jo has :-) You are so very generous.
Big hugs,
Annie x

Di said...

Oh yes Annie - they will fit a Cuttlebug perfectly. And would be great for wedding invitations :) Di xx

Bernie said...

Sorry you had to pay twice for what you wanted but someone is going to be very happy you did. :) I know I would be. Thanks for the chance to win.
Got to disconnect the computer and move it out of the way so they can put in the new windows. Fun and games!
Hugs
Bernie

Di said...

Hi Bernie. You've been entered anyhow by me:)) Good luck with the windows. Hugs, Di xx

mamapez5 said...

Oh Di. That sounds all too familiar. I order something and expect to get it the next day. Not that it happens out here. Chris got a birthday card today posted for his birthday on 15th, and he also got a small parcel from Amazon ordered ages ago. Yesterday he told them it hadn't arived and a replacement is also on it's way, so he will be doubled up as well!
It's generous of you to offer the hearts as blog candy and I would love to be in with a chance of winning them, so I've added my linky.
Good luck to everyone!

Kathleen said...

I get quite annoyed when things take ages to be delivered, in fact it makes me begin to wonder if I did actually order them.
Love your comment about only being one prize this time.

lisa said...

10 days would be far too long in my book too, Di, especially when other sites get things to you next day pp free which I love.
These look gorgeous, you can never have enough Nesties.
I love my fine nibs by the way, what a brilliant invention. Thanks again.
Hugs Lisax

What a lovely offer - thank you for the opportunity! LOVE the simple card you made and yes, the embossing IS visible on magnification and it looks good. This set has a LOT of possibilities, Di. Sounds as if you're as impatient as I am, too - that made me giggle, lol. Thanks x

Elizabeth said...

Still catching up, Di, and can't believe I almost missed the opportunity to put my name down for this fabulous candy. Ten days is way too long to wait for an order but with our postal system up here it's not that unusual. Lovely card too - I peered and could just see the embossing :) Thanks for tip for the ceiling - have passed it on to the EM to act on. Elizabeth x
