Almost my Birthday, in more ways than one

This post will stay at the top until 12.03.13

Good morning everyone and welcome to my new follower.  
I can hardly believe that on the 8th of March I will have been blogging for a whole year. What a year that has been. I have to say a huge thanks to so many people for the inspiration they give me with the amazing cards they produce, especially Bev Rochester, as if I had never found her blog I would never have started, mind you I would be a few thousand pounds richer and wouldn't have boxes of 'stuff' all over my house :). I wouldn't also be part of two of the best DT, and still can't believe they chose me to join them.
 The other thing I am celebrating, or should I be hiding from is the BIG 60 on March 12th, a birthday I'm really not looking forward to as I think that means I am old :(.

Anyway enough waffle. To thank the people who decided to follow my blog, many of whom I think of as friends, I have a little candy to share with you. I will draw it on my birthday.

It contains:-
 a Core impressions 12 x 12 pad( brown and cream collection), 
20 sheets Neenah classic crest card,  
Flexmarkers set 3 (13 pens)plus cool grey 4 and 5, 
4 x American Seam Bindings, 
3 x assorted flowers from WOC, 
1 pk prima flowers pink, 
5 x silver butterflies, and assorted charms.. 

I will delete any candy only blogs. But would ask you to show my candy on your  blog and be a follower of mine, and leave a comment to enter. I will post world wide to the winner who of course will be chosen at random
