My First Blog Candy!

Goodevening everybody, hope you're enjoying your night. Anyway, i've decided to have a blog candy, to celebrate a few good things that have happened to me lately:

I have been asked to be a guest designer on the crafty Monkeys Challenge blog on the 17th of April, and i've found out what High School i'm going to in September.
So here it is.

It includes a PM creative tones paper pad, a selection of mens papers, a pack of PM and prima flowers, silver charms, and a smirk stamp. I will also include (not shown in the picture) a selection of stamped images and PM notelets, including Penny Blacks, Sarah kays, stamps from Leere Aldrich, Forever Friends, and some of my favourite sentiments.

All you have to do to be in with the chance of winning is:

Become a follower ( please... )

Leave a comment on this post telling me what place you like to buy your crafty stash from.

And put a link on your blog, spreading the word to fellow crafters.

I'll be checking!!!!

And i will draw a name out of a hat on Friday the 13th of March ( lucky, and unlukily for some!)

Thanks and good luck! :o)

Love, Fern x x


  1. Hi Fern,
    Well done you on being a GD bet you were dead chuffed, I take it you got into the High School you wanted!!. Love your blog candy, I will spread the word on my blog. Dont worry about adding me to the list I have most of those things already and will just be happy to spread the word for you. Lets see if we can get a few more peeps checking out your fab blog. As you already know I get most of my things from my shop, but have just found a great website called Silly Monkey Crafts where I am getting all my promarkers from.

  2. Hi Fern
    What a lovely blog you have and it's all thanks to Lyndsey that I've found you.
    I'll gladly follow you around blogland and ofcourse I'll post a link on my sidebar telling everyone about your yummy candy.
    Good luck with the DT on Crafty Monkeys too.

  4. Hey Fern!

    What lovely, delish blog candy. Thank you so much for offering us all the chance to win. I've only been crafting and making cards for 3 months, so any new stash is always welcome with me, so I'd love the chance to win please.

    Many, many congrats on your DT position at Zoe's challenge blog - I am really looking forward to seeing what you create! Also, many congrats on (I assume) getting into your preferred high school. I know it can be pretty stressful - my niece went through the exact same thing last year, but was thrilled to get accepted at a high school that she really wanted to go to but that was out of her catchment zone.

    I'm now off to pop you onto the candy bar on my blog, plus I'll write a post to 'spread the news' later today when I'm back from taking our daughter to school!

    Take care, hun

    Oops - in my excitement, I forgot to tell you my fave crafty store (so I've deleted my original post) - I think it's got to be, but coming a close second is (we only have The Range in my neck of the woods so I use online shops most of the time!). I buy most of my stamps from who usually deliver them the very next day!

  5. Hi Fern what a great blog you have i also found you through Lyndsey's blog. Congratulation's on the DT it's great fun being on a DT and you will enjoy it.

    Thanks for the chance at this wonderful blog candy!

  20. Congratulations Fern on becoming a DT - though I'm not surprised ... your cards are gorgeous! Thanks for the chance of your lovely candy too!

  21. Oops I forgot to add that I get most of my crafty stash from the Internet - I'd much rather buy them 'in person' but the variety just isn't in my local craft shop!

  22. Oh wow, lotsa exciting things going on in your life!!! I can't wait to see what you do on the DT and have fun in high school - I'm guessing you got into the HS of your choice! I'm adding you to my list of blog candy on my sidebar and will become a follower of course!

  23. I just came across your blog and have added you to my follow list. I showed my 9 year old daughter Zoe's blog and Georgia's blog and now I have one more to share with her :) She really wants me to set one up for her too, so perhaps this week we will do that. She created a card for the latest Monkey's challenge ~ we just need to get it uploaded and linked. My favorite place to buy items ~ I really don't have a favorite as I buy from so many different places, both local and via internet. Now my daughter on the other hand, her favorite place is just raiding my craft room!

    Thanks so much for the chance to win these goodies, which I'm sure my daughter's would be thrilled to receive. :)

    I've added your giveaway to my blog under the Blog Candy column.

  24. Congrats on your DT position!
