Digi freebie, special challenge and CANDY!!!

Hello my dears,

By now, most of you will know that my little girl (who is not so little any more!) is a bit of an artist. well, after some prodding by myself and one or two bloggy friends (you know who you are...), she has designed her very first digi stamp, which she wants to offer up to you all as a freebie. All she asks is that you credit her (Kayleigh at Mad Hatter designs) if you do.

So without further ado... Meet Neko:

"Neko" is, according to my Japanese-loving daughter, Japanese for "Cat", so she decided it would be an apt name.

Now, I mentioned a special challenge and a candy draw, didn't I?
Entering is simple... If you want to be in for a chance to win my candy (full contents to follow, but there will be several stamps - including LOTV - paper, washi tape and more!), just pop your details into the linky below, and link to your blog, not an individual post.

The candy:

However... If you would also like to be included in a special draw to win a £10 voucher (or equivalent in other currency) to a crafty shop of your choice, we would like to challenge you to make a card using the Neko digi, and link that up too, linking to the actual post.

So, there are two chances to win. One for the candy, and one as a special one-off challenge (because Kayleigh would be completely over the moon if people were to make something with her digi!). You can enter either one, or both if you want.
The rules are simple! Anyone can play along (even if you won something recently. Please don't let that stop you!), and though we'd appreciate it if you are or become a follower of our blogs, it's not essential. In addition, we would be so very happy if you could help spread the word, so we can get a few entries!
NO candy only blogs please, and while you are very welcome to link up as many projects as you want, you'll only get one entry into the draw.

This challenge/candy will run until my birthday, which is the 17th of February!

Now, no challenge is complete without some DT work, right? So here is Kayleigh's first ever DT creation...

And here is mine:

Your turn! ;-)

Have a fabulous day everyone!

Leanne said...

I just found your candy pic on Brenda's(1st comment here)blog & just because the draw was today, the 17th, I was tempted to link up. You know why? It's also my birthday today & I just wanted to try my luck. Tried following you blog, but it does not seem to work at the moment. Will certainly return & try again. Anyway Happy mutual Birthday!! :)
