Hi Mel,
So glad you are feeling better these days hun - I will leave a link on my candy basket page on my blog
I am thankful that I have my wonderful husband here with me - he had a heart scare about three and a half years ago and ended up in hospital and had 7 stents fitted - a scary time! So for every morning that we both wake up and stay healthy - I am thankful. I am thankful for my daughter who brings light into my life by just being my daughter and for my wonderful friends who are there when I need a whinge and pick me up when I feel a bit down!! Thanks for the chance to win such a fab prize - I would pick two Tilda stamps as I don't have any and they are on my wish list!
Huge hugs

Dear Melly

I'm glad that you are doing better - your photo is lovely and your candy is awesom!

I am already a follower and have added your candy (with your flower photo as I did not know what else to use) to my sidebar at Create With Joy.

There are so many stamps on my wish list - right now I'd especially love the Paper Artsy Hot Pick stamps but I'm flexible! :-)

Hi Mel

Glad to hear you are doing better hun. Your photo is fab and I have used it to link your candy - hope that's OK. I like your idea for candy and I think I would go for some Tilda stamps too - you can never have too many!!!
I am thankful primarily for the health of my two little dragonlettes. I am also thankful for my undertanding hubby - putting up with my blogging and being my sounding board when I am not sure if my card is OK. Also I am thankful for all the wonderful friends I have made through blogging.

Take care hun

Hugs Ali x

PS am a proud follower too.

It's a gorgeous photo, Hun - love the colours and the soft background. Not sure I'll get it linked before we leave for Spain on Saturday morning, but just wanted to leave you a wee message. Take care and we'll catch up properly soon (we're only away a week...) Susie x

Lorraine said...

hi hunni glad you are feeling better and i just wanted to say how amazing you are for the candy i think its the perfect prize as sometimes you don't always know what goodies your followers have so i think that this is perfect.

I am truely thankful for my wonderful parents in my life i would never change them they are so down to earth and more my best friends than my parents,also my gorgeous boyfriend who everyone around us said it wouldn't last but 13 years on and we are still going strong(showed them)not that i am bitter or anything lol
I am also very thankful for my wonderful dog he is three years old and he is the sunshine in my life,I also am thankful for my blog and followers and friends through blogging as i keep myself to myself and don't have any friends where i live as i seem to get hurt by them in the past so i stay well clear which is a shame really.I have met so many wonderful people in blogland its one of the best things i have ever done.
I like loads of different stamp companies but the ones i really would love is either 2 of the lil lolitas from tickled pink stamps or TGF cheeky glamour and cheeky mate.
thankyou so very much for the chance of winning Mel and take care xx

Glad that you are feeling better. I have posted about your candy http://bobbishobbies.blogspot.com/2010/06/mels-blog-candy.html. I am thankful for my DH and children. They are the center of my universe. I love so many different stamp companies it is hard to limit it but I really want some of the Whiff of Joy stamps right now.

Lynne in NI said...

Aww Melly, aren't you a sweetie giving us candy 'cause you're feeling better! And great candy idea too - I'd love to get a couple of the new Lili of the Valley releases.
And I'm thankful for my DH, my health, and my wonderful family and friends (including all the new friends I've made in blogland!)

Hi Mel
I just came across your blog and had to follow it and link it on my blog http://carbonescorner.blogspot.com even before reading about your blog candy as I can across your wedding cake explosion box and it is beautiful.

Now reading about the blog candy and to say what we are greatful for I have to say it is my life. To make a long story short, you can read about it on my blog the longer version and everything was sudden so there was no preparation for what I am about to write. my husband died in 2000 at the young age of 43, my husbands dog died in Dec 2000, in 2001 my mother died of breast cancer, my bird who I had for 22 years died 2 weeks later, in 2002 my cousin died from a rare form of stomach cancer, in 2003 my sons dog died on what would of been my mothers birthday, on Feb 14, 2004 I was diagnosed with colon cancer, had surgery and chemo and then in 2005 it came back and I was told I only had 2 to 4 years to live from 1st being diagnosed. I did chemo for 2.5 years straight and I have really shocked the Oncologist team where all my doctors are because even though I still have the Stage 4 cancer it decided to stand still for the last 2.5 years and not spread and take my life. So for this I am very grateful to be able to still be here and during this time I have 2 new people in my life, my grandson and granddaughter.

I love Sugar Nellie, Tilda and Erwin and Belles and Whistle stamps and I oh so wish there were places here in the USA that would sell these so they would be easy access to me.

Now I will end this and say "Have a Nice Day" going to go read your whole blog.

OOO what a great candy to offer!

I am sooo thankful for a patient hubby who puts up with my crafting addiction, my moaning (yes I admit I moan a lot) he has alsp been so great when I have been poorly recently. He also bought me some gorgeous clothes yesterday with out me even saying I wanted any and he chose them himself! There I am really thankful for my hubby!

Stamps well I am not fussy really there has been one stamp that I have been after for ages which is sugar nellie I think its hamish in a kilt, I am not even sure he is around any more. Other than that I love all stamps :)

Thanks so much for the chance to win!

FAB candy, thanks for offering it. I now follow and I've put this on my sidebar Here . I'm not sure which 2 stamps I'd like most - I have a Large Wish List. Can I decide if I win?! I'm thankful to be alive and at this point in time, cancer free now! Breast cancer reared it's ugly head but I'm OK for now and Today I am enjoying one more birthday!!

Lori said...

Hi Mel ~ First, I want to say thank you for allowing us to post our 'thanks!' I just read Terri's post above... I have a similar story. I am so very thankful that JESUS has healed me twice from cancer. Once by the hands of the doctors, and more recently, by His Hand alone!!! I owe my ALL to Him ♥

I don't know your story as I've just come across your blog... May you rest in the arms of Our Great Physician and have many happy and healthy days full of crafting!!!!!!!

Oh, I'm your follower and I'll post for ya on my candy alert! page : ) I love many stamps...Magnolia, Bells n Whistles especially! Thank you for your kindness.

I have (1) very gently used Magnolia stamp on my blog as candy if you are interested...

Love and hugs ~

Karen Wilson said...

Hi Melly! I made it in the nick of time I think?? Ok, so I am thankful for my family, my health...I had a cancer scare and had to have a hysterectomy 5 yrs ago this past Nov...a VERY scary time for me, considering I was only 32. I am also very thankful for my friends in blogland! You know, I'm just so thankful to be here.

As for stamps...I love the new Victoria Case line!

Hugs;
Karen

Wow! I just stumbled across your blog and I LOVE it!!! I became an instant follower before even knowing there was blog candy available! Let's see....I'm grateful for my family, my niecec, my friends and my DBF, as well as to incredible blogs like your where I find my inspiration! Unfortunately, I don't have a blog of my own, but I will pass word of your awesome site onto my friends! I have recently been introduced to Magnolia stamps and if I were lucky enough to win, I would be in search of some new Tilda's that I just know I could not live without! Thanks for the opportunity to win!
