Blog candy update

Good morning, isn't it a lovely day the sun is shining through while I am having a craft. However its going to rain all day tomorrow ! So 2 reasons why I am here the first: a new challenge over at Hobbycutz. The theme this week is Don't use white. So I pulled out my g45 papers nutcracker sweet and a gorgeous wooden embellishment from the lovely Kobie over at hobbycutz. What do you think ?

I quite like the vintage Christmas look of this card. Anyway please do pop over and join in with this challenge as we are sponsored by the fab Kenny k.
So onto the 2nd reason I have a picture of the 50 follower blog candy giveaway.

Im still stuck at 43 only need 7 more then I will draw out a winner. Please post a picture in your sidebar although its not a requirement I would be grateful. So thanks for stopping by today, hope everyone is having a fabulous bank holiday weekend. Take care xxxx
