The Big Blog Candy Fest

Yes folks I have decided to get the Big Blog Candy Fest a-rolling....the hits are now at 51,000 and when my mega news of next week hits the world's media.....who knows....I may be marooned in my house by the paparazzi and in great demand for interviews from the world's press.......so here we go with
Giveaway No 1

There will be 6 give-aways in total running over the next 6 weeks.....so plenty chances to grab some goodies. This week I have decided that my beloved Crop-a-Dile needs to find a good home.....he is rather in awe of his big brother.....the Big Bite and is feeling very lonely and neglected just sitting on a shelf.......SHAME....

He lives in his own little case with lots of eyelets to keep him company....so if you want him....all you have to do is leave me a comment telling me
the one you just can't live without
and put a link to my blog candy on your blog.
This give-away will remain open until Tuesday 9th December at midnight and the winner will be announced on Wednesday morning.....international entrants welcome.....so come on folks....have a go and make this little cheeky chappie happy again.
Well off to make me Christmas Cake today I think......will post recipe tomorrow for any of you Christmas Cake Lovers out there and get my DT stuff done for this week.....off to London on Friday.....so lots to do.... Hugs....Kath xxxxxx
I will leave a link for this post at the top as from tomorrow.
Well done Helen for spotting the deliberate mistake....of course...the date should be the 9th and not the 11th.......just goes to show some folk do pay attention.


  1. Happy December Kathy!! My fave tool is the scissor! Can't live without it!! So many things need to be cut up :)

  2. Hi Kath! What a FAB prize! Shame he's all lonely by himself your Crop-a-dile! I'd have to say one tool I couldn't be without is probably my paper trimmer, I can cut with a craft knife but it's so much neater with my trimmer! It's not even an all singing all dancing one, but it does the job!
    Hugs xx

  3. Great giveaway. My favorite tool is Shape cutter I just cannot cut any shape or circle without it.

  6. Hi Kathy! Awesome prize. I have so many favorite tools. But, the one I can't live without would have to be my trimmer. I use it practically everyday.

  9. Hi Kath, What a great candy. My favourite tool at the moment must be my cuttlebug and nestabilities. It makes matting and layering more interesting.

  23. Hi Kath! My favorite tool is the Fiskars paper trimmer that I started out with 8 years ago! It's pretty beat up, but I have tried others (more expensive ones even), and I just always go back to my Fiskars! It cuts straight and it's light weight, and I just love it! I've tried the ones with lights, but they don't cut straight...Grrr! I put your blog candy (very nice by the way), in my blog candy reminder on my sidebar!
