    Such generous candy. I would most probably spend it on some Flowers or maybe some stamps (most probably Kanban my favs) Although I have been wanting to get some more Nesties so might be put towards that, all depends what is in the Sales. I can't resist a bargin even if I did 'WIN' the cash, always out bargin hunting and getting the most for my money.
    Have a lovely birthday and good luck to everyone x

  56. You have a lovely blog Kirsty-Anne - I have been having a little peek after finding you from Elaine's (Wheeler)site. I hope you have a lovely 40th birthday - I vaguely remember mine! I am now a follower of yours and would be thrilled to be in with a chance to win your candy (no I am definitely not just one of those Candy Hunters!) I love to craft and have been doing so for years. I am quite new to blogging though and so far have been unable to put 'things' onto my sidebar. If you could help me out here I would be grateful to you loads. I really NEED some Copics so if I was lucky I guess that is where I would spend your wonderful candy money.

    Bigs hugs to you and please pop over to see me.

    Sue P xxx

  57. Hi there Kirsty-Anne - me again! Thanks so much for the instructions - I'm going to give it a go when I have finished blogging. Thank you for popping over to see me as well - your comments are really appreciated - my confidence grows daily!!

    Hugs Sue P xxx

  58. I'm on. Y iPad chik, I'll link your candy to my blog when I put my laptop on tomorrow.
    Happy birthday for next week, it's the same day as my hubby, I've got birthday candy too. If I won it'd be spent, wisely of course, on ribbon, trim, sparkly bits, paper and/or stamps :)
    Congrats on being picked for the Totally Tilda DT, I'll continue to visit you, your creations are gorgeous

  59. Tout d'abord un très joyeux anniversaire pour ce 28 août ! bel âge que ces 40 ans, les miens sont loin..
    je n'ai pas de blog, mais je me permets quand même de participer même si je ne chasse pas les "bonbons"..
    je débute dans ce que j'aime faire, les cartes, et il y a toujours besoin de petites choses qui chiffrent
    si vite.. des dies, de la dentelle, des fleurs, des encres.. plein de choses que je voudrais essayer
    et qui manquent..
    très cordialement de France
