birthday candy

Right, here's a little something to celebrate my birthday and for reaching 100,000 hits.

Nothing major but it's got some of my favourite things in there (i.e stamps, papers & embellies!), so I hope you'll like it too

You'll get everything in the photo which includes:

  • Stamps (Greeting Farm 'Hope & grace' set, Daisy & Dandelion clear stamp set, Whiff of Joy Alison Acton stamp 'Queen Charlotte', High Hopes 'kissy face' frog stamp)
  • 'Memento Tuxedo black' ink pad I can't live without when it comes to Copics (I'll put in couple of the white cardstock I use from Rymans too, so you can see how it compares to what you use)
  • Paper Roses in varrious colours & sizes, Prima Hydrangeas flowers
  • 15 assorted metal charms
  • jar of fun flock in pink
  • bit of lace and raffia ribbon
  • last but not least, whole stack of 120 6x6 papers (60 designs, 2 sheets of each - been cut from my 12x12 block. It took a while to cut, but thought it'd be easier to post!) It's 'My Minds Eye' Magnolia range so full of bright summery colours. Tried to fan it all out in photo below to give you idea of colours and patterns.

If you would like to enter my candy draw then just spread the word and/or become follower (but not obligated to, just nice to see who my readers are) and leave comment here. Open to all worldwide, not just bloggers. Open for 2 weeks, so will close candy on the 21st July '09 and pick random winner shortly after.

Good Luck!

Now that we have described discount links of london the one way linking process, how can you get links of london silver websites to link just to you? One answer is that it is links of london sale dependent on your sites content, especially if you links london jewellery have unique content. Other websites will link cheap links of london to you if you have interesting content that links london bracelet compliments their content. The problem is that you london links charms really have to have something exceptional. links of london watches sale One easy way to get a type of one way link called discount links of london rings a back-link. These are links to articles that you cheap links of london necklaces have written and distributed through article directories.
