Fornightly Blog Candy #1

Morning everyone!

Hope you're all having a great weekend.

Well, as promised we're starting up the fortnightly blog candy today.  This means that we will have the challenges starting on one Sunday and then the candy starting the following Sunday.

The prize for the candy is a £10 voucher to spend in the Scribble & Scrap Shop.

To stand a chance of winning the challenge you need to do 3 simple things.

1.  You must follow this blog.

2.  You must put the blinky into your blog sidebar with a link back to here.  You do not have to keep redoing this each time...just leave it there.

3.  You need to leave a comment and for each candy we will be asking you a little question to answer.


So...grab the candy blinky from the sidebar and put it on yours, check you're following this blog and please comment to this post with a response to the following question:

What tutorial/s would you like to see on here?

See...nice and easy!  

The winner of each candy will be announced at the start of the next candy.  

Please spread the word far and wide.

Good luck!  


Did you know that we also have a facebook page which is where you will find information on new releases, etc.  I would love it if you could pop over and Like the page. 

And we also have a fun facebook group which is where we can show off our projects (all sorts of crafty goodies), chat about craft (or anything else) and generally have a lot of fun and laughs.  It's a great place to get to know people.  


And don't forget the challenge!  It's going brilliantly for a first challenge and all the projects entered are fabulous.  

All our challenges are Anything Goes and that means anything crafty as long as it's not a digital layout.  It has to have been physically handcrafted.  

The prize for the challenge is a £15 voucher to spend in the Scribble & Scrap Shop and there are blinkies for the winner (drawn by Random.Org), Top Three and GDT.

So click on the 'Current Challenge' button in the top tabs on this page and it will take you to the present challenge.  You have until 6pm on Friday afternoon to enter and the winners will be announced when the new challenge starts at 9am on Sunday.  

When you join in the challenge, don't forget to make sure that you are a follower of this blog and that you put GDT after your name when entering if you would like to join the team for a challenge.  

The rules to the challenge (simple and straightforward) can be found on a tab at the top of the page.  

So come and join us!  You can enter 3 times each challenge and we love visiting all your blogs to leave comments.  Spread the word...the more the merrier!

Right...I need to crack on with some work.  Don't forget to pop back tomorrow where you will find an 'About Me' by our lovely Tracey Murphy!  

Take care everyone & happy crafting!
