Just A Little Candy...




I knew it would happen I got myself ahead so I could have some decent crafty time this weekend and it just didn't happen, just could not seem to get going for some reason, not like me at all.  So instead I had a little sort out and got a little candy together. 

A little decopatch starter kit (pen pot)
Assorted Flowers
Authentique Paper Pad
Belles & Whistles Stamp
Cupcake stamp (freebie with a  mag but not my thing)
I don't have a linky so just leave a comment if you want to be in the draw and if your not already you will need to be a follower to be eligible.  Pop a pic in your sidebar too!

Draw open until end 29/02/12 and winner will be chosen at random on 01/03/12, will post worldwide so all can enter.

Take Care
