Exciting news and my first blog candy

This is a sticky post (hopefully) so please scroll down for newer posts :-)

Hi there, I've been absolutely busting to share my exciting news for the last few weeks and now I can let my secret out .... I've been invited to join the Chocolate Baroque Design Team!! Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am a huge fan of Glenda Waterworth and have a serious addiction to Chocolate Baroque stamps so its a real honour to be joining Glenda and her uber talented DT. In fact watching Glenda demonstrating was what got me into stamping in the first place.  Pop over to Glenda's blog and you'll see why she has been such an inspiration.

Anyway I think such exciting news calls for a celebration but I can't get together with all my blogging buddies for a party so I thought I'd offer some blog candy instead. Did I mention that as well as having an  addiction to Chocolate Baroque stamps, I'm also totally hooked on mystery parcels, goodie bags and the like? As a result I've ended up with some duplicate goodies so I've made up a parcel of crafty treats that could be yours!!

To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is:
  1.  Be a follower of my blog or become a follower if you'd like to
  2.  Pop over to the Chocolate Baroque Design Team blog and become a follower if you aren't already
  3. Pop a link in your sidebar
  4. Leave a comment on this post. 

The candy is open until Sunday 2nd October, 12md UK time and I'll get my son to pick a winner out of the hat and post the winner on my blog later that day. 

Here's a list of exactly what you could be winging its way to you:
Artylicious Filigree Fusion cd
Artylicious Fantasy Floral Cd (both are full of the most gorgeous bps etc)
Thank You Mandala wood mounted stamp set
Lace Rose Heart wood mounted set
Easter Greetings unmounted A6 stamp sheet
Dreaming of a white Christmas unmounted DL stamp sheet
Damask Delight A4 unmounted stamp sheet
Paper flowers
White opal liquid pearls
Turquoise stickles
Doodlebug Designs faux stitching rub-ons
Making Memories Defined Sticker sheet
and a Brooch hand made by me using Chocolate Baroque stamps

I've noticed that I've gained quite a few new followers lately and I'd love to pop over to your blogs and say hello but if your profile is hidden I can't, so if I haven't visited please get in touch as I'd love to pay you a visit :-)

  12. Am already a follower here & over on the CB DT Blog, have added your candy to my sidebar. As for leaving a comment - how could I not congratulate you? Terrific news & I was grinning as I set off for my bookshop duty this morning after reading the official announcement. I've been mulling over your technique of making notes for each stamp set & I have to agree that part of the beauty of CB stamp sets is their ability to complement one another. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you do with the new release of stamps. Hope you've had a lovely day & thanks for sharing your joy in the form of some rather special Candy.
    Hope you have a good week.
    Much love
