Been meaning to photograph and post this for a while but didn’t get my act together until now. Anyway, as a Christmas present from me to say thank you for visiting and to celebrate reaching 250 followers (now an amazing 265 – thank you!) here it is.

<KENOX S1050  / Samsung S1050>
Neither of these has ever seen ink and the ums haven’t been opened, so leave me a comment, telling me why you deserve them and you can have them.
<KENOX S1050  / Samsung S1050>  <KENOX S1050  / Samsung S1050>
I’ll draw a name sometime closer to the end of December but will only post after the Christmas rush, to avoid losing them in the Christmas post! I will, of course, be adding other goodies to this, but I haven't yet decided what ... but it will be nice :-)

Please note!
Please don’t put your name down if you live in RUSSIA.
Add a link to your side bar (you can copy mine from the top of the right hand column) if you like!
Best of luck.  Cath x

I'm just crazy about stamps and you just can't have enough stamps :-)
I also like a late christmas present.

Hi Cath. Congrats on your 265 followers! You can even be sure that you've more followers than that. I, for one, am following you via google reader. I don't think I deserve your great candy any more than any other crafter. But I see it as a game: it's nice to win, but it's also great just to play!

If you're giving it away, I am sure it will have the best home here, it's cold, windy and rainy outside, so what's better than stamping with such beautiful stamps! They will certainly fit my style!

Ann B said...

Very generous give-away Cath.
Why should I win? Because I don't have many stamps (only joking).
Because I'm worth it?
Because they will go to a good home where they will be looked after and loved?
Because I love Bingo?
Because it's Christmas.

Hi Cath,
Fantastic 265 follwers and that will be more I think.
I'm slightly addicted to stamping. I love it and if I can stamp I can forget everything around me and forget the worries of the day they put on. It's also a great outlet and I can express myself in this way.
Therefore, I would love to win this beautiful candy to make something beautiful and new to do.
Lovely greet

Congrats on 265 followers, Cath!

Do I need the stamps? Probably not, do I want the stamps? You bet! They will have a good home here with me :)

Carla said...

I would love to have these stamps, they are great. And I want to start next year a lot better than last newyearsday (with a broken elbow in hospital) and a present is always nice to start!

Helen said...

Well done on your followers - it's not surprising as your work is gorgeous.
I promise to love and care for your stamps if I were lucky enough to win them. Not sure if I deserve them but I'd use them and love them!!
Thanks for the chance.

I NEED them, because believe it or not I don't have them. I absolutely adore the wooden stamps and it's soooo hard to find them these days. That would be a fab one to add to my collection.

Girlsinthecraft said...

I so don't deserve them. Not because I have been naughty this year or anything like that. Just because I have been in a creative funk and haven't been using what I already have :) Hope the new owner has fun playing.

Happy Holidays all!

I would love to have them, because in winter here there's nothing better to do than playing around with such beautiful stamps. And .. a late christmas present is just what I need!

Well, Cath, can't honestly think of one good reason why I DESERVE to win anything, but I can tell you that I do very much like these stamps and would give them a good home!


Maarit at Violets Corner said...

Hiya Cath, congratulations on your 269 followers! I'm often here for inspiration and now a follower too.

I deserve the stamps because I love the game of life; it's often challenging and hard, but I've reinvented it a couple of times for the better.

Hi Cath, I soooo obviously deserve these stamps as I have such a very, very, very small amount of rubber in my stash, LOL.

I love your blog and I appreciate the chance to win such great blog candy! I deserve to win because I have been so good this year! I have quit many bad habits which was hard and my only solace was rubber stamping. Surely you don't want me to go back to all of my bad habits...do you?

Putting your candy on my sidebar :)

Celeste said...

Love your blog. I follow you through Google Reader. The stamps would be a welcomed and useful addition to my collection. MY husband has never bought me a christmas present and so neither do our sons, so the only gifts I get are ones I either buy or from a couple of lovely girlfriends, usually after Christmas. WInning this would be like getting another late Christmas gift.
Merry Christmas and good luck to all.
