My 1000th post...and a little candy!

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWER POSTS, AS THIS POST WILL REMAIN AT THE TOP UNTIL DECEMBER 24TH...

A huge milestone for me as this is my 1000th blog post. Back in 2006 when I first set up my blog I had previously said that having a blog was a load of old b******s....so when I was eventally persuaded that I should have one I decided to call my blog "A Load of Old Blogocks"...it just seemed fitting. So now three and a half years later I have reached my 1000th post.

During this time, I have made online friends and met up with some amazingly talented and lovely crafters...this is the power of the internet.

So in honour of my 1000th post I am going to offer a little candy....which will run until midday (GMT) on Christmas Eve. I will then use Random.Org to pick one winner who will receive goody bag which will include a set of Miss Anya Rain Snow Shine stamps...as shown below....
In the goody bag there will be a bit of bling, some flowers, pins...basically a little of all the things I love to use.

So all you need to do is leave me a link to your blog post mentioning my candy. Remember, you have until midday (GMT) on December 24th....

So on to my card....

I used the sketch over on Sketch Saturday again...as I thought it was so fab. The image is another of The Greeting Farm "Wild Sprout" digi images which has been coloured with Copics using the following colours...
Skin - E000/E00/E11/R20
Hair - C1/C3/C5/C7
Clothing - R37/C7/C9
The papers are all October Afternoon "Cherry Hill" layered with Bazzill cardstock. I have embellished with flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts which have been glimmered and glamoured (Pearl Glimmer Mist & DecoArt Glamour Dust), Stampin' Up "Basic Gray" tafetta ribbon, a star pin from Tabby Crafts and finally finished off with a sentiment by Craftwork Cards.

Be sure to enter my Blog Candy to win the set of stamps plus embellies....Please use Mister Linky.

ETA - I will post worldwide!!!!
