Fortnightly Candy #6

Hi everyone!

hope you're all ok and just about ready for Christmas?  Just have a few more bits to do myself and then I can sit back and enjoy a glass of Baileys or three.

We had some really great answers to the question I posed for the last Candy...and for those who want a Cameo...hope you get one as they're great fun, though mine is very much underused.  I think I would ask for the entire Graph 'Its collection...and the remaining Spellbinder dies I don't have...and Memory Box, Cheery Lynn, Joanna Sheen...oh, and a lovely log home with a giant craft room and really fabulous storage system.  Ok...I have zero chance of getting any of that but I can dream.  :o)

And so...onto the winner of the £10 voucher for Fortnightly Candy #5 and that is:

Which is Denise Goeldner.

Congratulations Denise, please can you contact me at to claim your £10 voucher!

  1. I think my most memoriable thing about crafting year 2013 will be the huge amount of Christmas cards I have been able to make because of being unemployed.


  2. My favourite crafty experience was probably yesterday's LOTV open day! Though the Harrogate craft fair was a close second.
    My favourite make was a CASE-study I did of my favourite designer! x

  3. To answer the question and thanks for candy entry "making a card for a craft magazine and it's going to be publish in January 2014
    edition "cheers Sue N x

  4. My favorite crafting experience of the year was going to a craft show with my sister, cousin & our kids. It was so fun and exciting to see all the wonderful stuff and come home with great new toys. Hugs, Robin

  5. Hi my favourite crafty make of this year is a Christening album for my Great Nephew it turned out just as I had pictured it in my head. A lot of my projects take a detour from the original idea, but this one went very smoothly, turned out great and I was very pleased with it.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  6. My favorite project of 2013 was a mini album I created of our trip to the majestic "Avenue of the Giants" redwood forest in California....these giants trees are so amazing!
    Hugs, Renee

  7. so excited that I was randomly picked xx. my favourite crafty experience was making my first cutting file ... dresser what a triumph for me.

  8. Hello! my favorite crafty project of 2013 was some upcycling boxes -

  9. My favourite crafty thing of 2013 is that I started to make more other items than just card I've been making more 3d items with my cameo

  10. One of my favourite experiences of the year was the Harrogate Craft Exhibition as not only did I add lots to my stash, I also spent the weekend with a crafty friend - however I think I have to say what I enjoyed most was teaching card-classes to beginners in Abu Dhabi.

  11. My favorite crafty experience.....getting all the pieces ready to make my Christmas cards. They are ready and to assemble.

  12. For now I'd say all the Christmas cards I've made I've even managed to mail most out on time :)
    thanks for the chance
    hug Nikki

  13. My favourite crafting experience of the year was an afternoon with my young niece and nephew. She was 4 and he was 8 and I couldn't believe they both sat there and did crafts for 3!!! hours. I thought for sure they'd be good for only an hour - they both loved it and so did I.

    Thanks for the chance for your candy! Wishing you a joyful day!

  14. Hum... My favorite crafting experience of the year I think would have to be finding online challenges. This opened a whole new world for me and endless possibilities and inspiration.

    I hope that you get some of the things on your list this year especially that log house Beautiful.

  15. hmmm... My favourite crafty experience/make this year I think is the Fortuneteller Tag ~ it's a simple enough tag, but it was a real conversation starter at the Rehabilitation centre I was at ~ I used it as a bookmark and got lots of ooh's and aaw's! ;)
    Thanks for a chance in the candy! I too hope we all get some of our crafty wishes for christmas this year :)

  16. my favourite crafty experience this year was starting my blog and finding this amazing blogging/challenges community!!!! I look forward to every challenge and to creating and show my cards!
