Big 30:th birthday celebration candy!


I'm so happy because I have FINALLY photographed all candy I've put together for you. It was freezing being on the balcony photographing, but so worth it. I've been wanting to do a candy since summer and now it's finally here! I'm having it mainly to celebrate my 30:th birthday on march 13:th. Have you noticed the fancy border and text I've added to the right corner? I'm so proud I managed to figure it out, lol. Here are some details of the candy:

Ok, so hopefully now you are very tempted and eager to find out how to join. First of all there will be three winners splitting the goodies listed above:

1. This prize below will go to one of my 58 followers I have so far. I want to show you how much I apreciate you for reading my ramblings and for signing up. Still not sure why you did it, but I'm greatful :D It consists of some papers, a clearstamp, flowers, decorations, some images and a handmade crocheted brooch I made the other day that has a charm that says "made with love". Just a little token to show my apreciation. I just learned how to make crocheted flowers and this was my first one. I'm so proud! Hopefully you'll find it useful.

2. This candy below will go to one of you that send me a birthday card. I don't have much contact with my family and don't have any friends in the town I live, it's just me and my sweetheart. Even though we have fun and celebrate it feels a little sad during my b-days. I would love to have a surprise party filled with people that love me and I love back. I'm not very good at making friends though so I'm hoping my blogfriends will want to celebrate me.
If you want to send me a card e-mail me (address found under my profile in the sidebar) and I will send you my snail addy. I don't want to post it here. Write "b-day candy" in the subject line to make it easier for me to sort. If you have a blog mail me the address too so I know who you are. That way I have better control of who gets my address.
The candy consists of some doublesided papers, images, a HÄnglar stamp, flowers and decorations.

3. And finally the big candy for everyone that spread the word and become a follower. Candy consists of:
*stamped images from companies like Whiff of joy, sweet pea stamps, magnolia,penny black,house mouse hÄnglar&stÄnglar etc.
*buttons, beads, postage stamps
*all sorts of cut-outs
*stampsheet plate #16 from sweet pea stamps

Ok, so here are the rules:

A: Prize1 is only for my 58 followers so far.
B: If you want a chance on prize 2 you need to send me a b-day card (to Sweden). E-mail me and I will send you my snail addy. E-mail me when you have sent your card so I know to expect it. It takes about 1 week for letters to get to Sweden from the US and about 3 days from Europe.You don't need to add any comment here (unless you also want to join prize 3 of course) I will draw a name among the cards sent in. If winner lives in Sweden, Norway or Finland I will give them another candy and draw another winner. This is because I want the hÄngel stamp go to someone who can't buy it themself from the hÄnglar shop. If you've found this candy close to closing date and you still want to send me a card, it's ok. Just e-mail me saying it will be late. I trust you send it.
C: Prize 3 is for everone in blogland. You need to sign up as follower, spread the word that it's my 30:th b-day by grabbing the image below and putting it in your sidebar (or/and posting about it). And if you could leave a comment telling me how I could improve my blog, what's good, what you would like to see more of (eg. more pics, tutorials, more detailed description etc.) Add your name to mr linky (hopefully it works) I  will be checking to make it fair to everyone. Only one entry per person please. I will ship internationally.Candy ends on my b-day march 13:th 23.59 (11.59pm my time - see clock in my sidebar) and I will annonce the winner shortly after that. I won't contact the winner, so you have to get back to me. The winner will need to get back to me within 3 days or I'll draw a new winner.

EDIT: I'm leaving the candy open for a couple of extra days - until sunday march 21:st. Candy B is closed though.

Clear as mud hopefully :D Let me know if it's not. Now let the spreading begin ;)
HERE you can see the cards I've gotten so far.

I am the first one. Happy birthday. There were times when people used to GET presents for their birthdays, not to Give. Good for us. Thank you for the chance to win

Julia said...

Hi Katarina,

Lovely to hear from you! I still can't resist making rag dolls as you see!! What lovely giveaway prizes you have lined up for the lucky winners - I'm sure you'll get lots of birthday cards to mark your special occasion. I shall send you one, although you don't need to include me in your giveaway. It wouldn't be fair for me to win when I don't make cards etc. myself (I still have your address, so long as you haven't moved since last year!).

Take care

Love Julia:0)

Kaia said...

Wow. For en candy !!!!!!!
Jeg har meldt meg som følger, lagt inn bilde m notis på sidebaren min, og venter i spenning.....
Når det gjelder tutorial på kortet mitt, så er det bare å lage skjære til ett 15 x 30 ark.
Lag brettekanter på 5cm, 10cm, 20cm og 25cm. brett de som du ser på det ene bildet av kortet mitt, og pynt i vei...
Klem fra Kaia

Ha det gott!!!

Happy 30th Birtday Katarina!!! I have to say, the thirties have been my best years so far. I just turned 39 this past November. So, I will venture into a new world my next birthday as I have to say goodbye to my thirties. Live well and you won't regret it when you reach your fourties, fifties, sixties and so on. (Bit Smiles to ya!!) I hope you have the best birthday you have ever had!
God Bless!

Simona said...

Hi Katarina, and HAPPY (belated) BIRTHDAY!

Your candy is simply amazing! I can't believe you are giving us the chance to win such an awesome prize! I have added you to my sidebar too.

Also, since you asked, I want to tell you what I would like too see more on your blog. I like it a lot already, but since all your creations are so gorgeous and inventive, I would love if you could show more tutorials. There are a lot of things we could learn from you if you are so kind as to show us how...

Thanks so much, and good luck with everything!

Hugs, Simona

PS: We are both Pisces, so I guess you too are very sensitive and a loving person! :) I too live away from my hometown and from my first family, so I know what you mean when you say you miss having them near you, especially around important days such as birthdays or holidays/celebrations... God bless you!

DZMania said...
