Happy birthday to me!

Today is my *mumble*th  birthday! I am always really excited about birthdays - I love the excitement and anticipation of presents and being the centre of attention! Somehow I can block out the fact that I am, inevitably, a year older! The ATC pictured is one I made using my new stamps from PaperArtsy, Distress Stains and Fresco Finish Paints - I made it as sort of recognition that it's my birthday - that's not weird is it?! Ok, might be a little...!
I am aware that last Friday was my first blogaversary and I thought I'd combine the both celebrations! I have found my first year of blogging to be really quite an experience. I had no idea that people would want to look at what I made, let alone comment and be so incredibly kind or even follow my blog. In the last year I have made some fabulous friends, learned more than I thought possible and had a tremendous amount of fun on the way! 
So, as I'll be getting some pressies today, I thought you might like some too as a thank you for being so supportive in my crafting journey! The photo doesn't have all of the goodies in it - I have temporarily 'mislaid' a few items since coming back from Ally Pally and putting my new stash away but I know they will turn up! 
So to win these, my little ATC (and the missing items!) all you need to do is: 
  • Be a follower - after all the candy is a thank you!
  • Leave a comment!
That's it! the very best of luck! I'll draw the candy by Random.org at midday on 28 April. The lucky winner will be announced on 29 April. A huge thank you again for your support - it's really valued!
