Blog CANDY update!! There's More!!

Zoe January 14, 2011 40

Hi Everyone,

Well as some of my loyal followers may have read, a few days after my initial post I was appalled at myself for having not expressed how much I love you all properly in my blog candy New Year message. I was silly to have waited to write it up on New Years Day as it had turned out I had only had a few hours sleep and I was sitting here zombified thinking about everything I wanted to say but not actually EXPRESSING it!!

So I had been waiting for a parcel to arrive that had some goodies I couldn’t wait for but I wanted to share them! I have been wanting to put together another candy for my super special and loyal followers, my FRIENDS. ๐Ÿ™‚

I made the card you might have seen yesterday especially for this special candy. ๐Ÿ™‚ For close ups click here

Now there is no new linky for this candy as this will be drawn a little differently. You still need to have entered my Anniversary Candy here where I will draw a SECOND random winner and a certain criteria must be met which I explain below.

This candy is a special thank you to the many of you who return often and leave me support. I have become friends with many of you where we email one another, chat on facebook or just by conversing on each other’s blogs.

I appreciate the time it takes to stop by, read my constant ramblings and then to type a message to share with me. We all know how much knowing that someone has stopped by means to us and of course I am no different.

I am just so happy to have been able to offer some inspiration to you all as you have for me.

As you may have guessed the criteria for winning this candy is as follows:
1. Enter your name in the linky on THIS PAGE HERE
2. Be a follower OR regular
3. Supported me with comments on my creations

If you are a NEW follower, I am hoping you have followed because you WANT to and not just for some candy. If you have just recently become a follower after coming across my blog through the candy, you still have an opportunity to win this candy if you are a ‘real’ follower and really do enjoy visiting and have continued to leave comments on my creations upon your first visit. I am not trying to be horrible, I just want those that have helped to shape me and those that continue to share in my passion to have equal opportunities in winning my extra ‘THANK YOU’ candy.

Please note that if by some extremely lucky chance the second random drawn number is the same person and they meet all the criteria, they will indeed win EVERYTHING.

If you would like to share this image on your blog you are welcome to but not required. ๐Ÿ™‚

So again, a huge OPEN ARMED Thank you to all my wonderful friends who I have grown to love over the last year and a special Thank you to all of my new followers who I also hope to get to know over the coming year.

Big Squeezes!

Zoe xxxooo

    That card is fabulous, I love the colors! I, for one, enjoy following Make It Crafty for many reasons, one being the tips and tricks but of course, to see the wonderful inspiration in the form of projects. Thanks for sharing your talent!

    Hi, I’m one of your newer followers and like the others love looking at your creations and getting inspiration from them. I do think your second candy is such a beautiful gesture and the card you’ve created to be part of it is stunning, but as I said I’m quite new to blogging and following and don’t feel that it would be fair to be considered along with those who have been followers of yours for a much longer time.

    Zoe: has it only been a year? It seems like I’ve know you since forever. You are such a great inspiration – I keep thinking if you learned to color as well as you have, there is still hope for me. Hope you’re keeping your feet dry, I think of you often. C2

    I’m the one that feels blessed. I will never, ever get over how special the stamp you sent me is (my name with a decorative border). Maybe it doesn’t seem like such a big deal to some, but it is to me. It’s my name and it’s spelled right which nobody else ever does. You made the effort to give me a stamp specifically for me (the other winners of your generosity couldn’t have all shared my name) and we’ve never even met, so, yes, your “little something in the mail” still blows me away. I use it to sign all the cards I make and right under my name I add a tiny little “made by me”. Everytime I use it I think of you. Thank you again for such a wonderful gift of caring.

    As I said yesterday your coloring just knocks me out! I can’t believe that you are adding more goodies to your already generous candy. But I certainly won’t argue with you, I’ll just say Thank you for another chance!
    Hugs right back at ya,

    Hi Zoe. It is funny. I just signed up today to be a follower, not for the candy but to stay better informed when you post. I have been “following” your blog for a while, especially because of the Magnolia-licious group. I spent some time today going back through your blog, and I am so impressed with how far you have come over the year. Your work started really good and is now out of this world. I look forward to following along with you and seeing what you come up with next.

    Hugz,
    Julie
