100 Followers Blog Candy

***This is a pinned post until 1st October. Please scroll down for new posts.***

When I first started my blog in 2012, I thought I was just writing to myself, keeping a record of some of my favourite cards. I had no idea there were lots of challenges to enter and more importantly, lots of blogging friends I had yet to meet. Just over two years ago I added a follower gadget to my blog, thinking I might get one or two followers - bloggers I already knew.  Two years on, I've now got 100 followers and I've really appreciated all the lovely comments made on my blog. (I had to wait until my followers list showed 101, as I somehow managed to follow myself! LOL!) So, to celebrate my 100 followers milestone, I'm going to give away two of my favourite dies to one of my followers. Not my dies obviously, but new ones!

Memory Box - Lucienne Tile Die and 
Memory Box - Pippi Butterfly Die

Here is a card I made using the dies.
I also used the two dies on this card HERE, using the Lucienne Tile die to make a background.

How to enter:

  1. Be or become a follower of my blog (your little photo must appear under followers).
  2. Post a photo of my blog candy on your blog and link back to this candy post. 
  3. Leave a comment below.
  4. No Candy-only blogs.
  5. Comments can be left until midnight on 30th September 2016 (UK time) and I'll do a random draw early in October.  
Good Luck!

Congratulations Liz on your 100 followers, I still have a long way to go, to catch you up! Fabulous dies, thank you for the chance to win them, Memory Box are my real favourite, and these two are 'missing' from my collection!

I thought I was a follower on your blog but I don't see my picture. When I try to follow a screen pops up and says forbidden. Error 430. I do visit and would love to be in the running for the Lucienne die. It is gorgeous. But I am sorry, I am not able to join.

Liz said...

I'm sure you were a follower of my blog too, Brenda. I know that you regularly leave me lovely comments. Blogger does strange things sometimes. Don't worry about your picture not being there, you'll still be put in for the draw. xx

Di said...

Hi Liz! I just saw your comment on my Wednesday card and had already seen this lovely giveaway. I'd like to join in for just the Lucienne tile die (I already have Pippa) please. Wondering if you'd like me to just add you into my sidebar or to make a point of telling folk on Sunday Snippets, with the photo and link in there? The first 100 followers is the hardest so well done you!

Hugs

Di xx

Liz said...

If you could add the link to your Sunday Snippets, that would be great. Thanks Di. xx

Valerija said...

Congratulations on your 100 Liz and thank you for the chance to win your fantastic Candy. You've made two lovely cards with the dies. Using the Lucienne tile as a background is a great idea. I have linked and put the picture of your candy on my blog. Barbxx

Pat said...

Wow Liz, congratulations on your 100+ followers and how lovely of you to give away these two pretty MB dies. I do obviously visit you often but have never got round to becoming a follower which I have now rectified. I love your cards and all the beautiful dies you use in such an inventive way, and this one is no exception. I love the background colour and the pretty pearls you have used on the butterfly trail and the blue gems to highlight the gorgeous ornate strip. x

Glennis said...

Thanks for a chance at your lovely blog candy! I've had a blog for a long time but due to circumstances I haven't done much on it for a long time now. Trying to get back into the swing of things this fall. Maybe I'll get some new followers too if I start back up.
