Simon Says Stamp Saturday Surprise

It’s that time of the week again when the ever generous Heidi from Simon Says Stamp lets me give away another Magnolia Stamp!

609storeheader

And this week I have chosen the adorable Bubbling Tilda

If you would like to be in with a chance of winning yummy candy all you need to do to enter the draw is leave a link to your blog (or your email address if you don't have a blog). The winner will be announced on Sunday evening.

Also just a heads up – when I draw the winner on Sunday evening I am going to remove the Inlinkz list from this post as some flipping Smart Alec thinks it’s clever to delete their entry after the winner has been drawn, thereby changing the names against the numbers by one, then leaving a sarky (and anonymous) comment disputing the winner. This happened last Sunday but the winner stands as drawn and announced. I copy and paste the number, name and link from the Inlinkz list when I am doing the post so know it was correct.

This is the only way I can think to do it without the Smart Alec sticking her oar in and spoiling it for everyone else, the only way I can think to keep it fair for the winner and also the only way I can think to keep the candy running because I so DON’T need this aggro!

If anyone has a problem with this please feel free not to enter the draw.

  2. I don't understand why people have to act that way....don't they understand that you don't have to do the giveaways. I think it is so kind of you to share what you do with us and I enjoy the giveaways....even if I have not won one....yet. ;)

    Hugs,

  3. Hi Bev, am doing my Saturday routine here :)
    Thanks for making this chance.
    Pity to anyone who try to ruin the fun and the kindness.
    Have a blessed weekend.

  4. You would think people would simply be happy that you offer such nice things every week. Thanks much!!

  5. Bev, you are so generous! I can't believe this person has persisted. We've discussed on our challenge blog that we may have to take a snapshot of inlinkz when we pull the winner... All it takes is one person to spoil things sometimes!

    I think if I were you, I'd track who was deleting their entry! You can actually download all of the entries by logging into inlinkz and click the 'Export participants emails' option below the inlinkz collection you want to save. It will save to your desktop as an excel document with their email, blog url and name in order.

  25. Poor Bev!! Hard to believe some people are so ridiculous!! I like Christine's idea - flush her out and publish her name - we're a pretty close community here - we'll fix her!!

  28. Thank you for the chance to win Bev. As usual, the stamp is great. This is really a shame that people try to spoil the fun for a stamp. Anyway, shame on them. And a big big thank you to you for offering so many delightful candies all the time (and sharing your gorgeous creations with the rest of us every day). I think that the inspiration is the greatest of the gifts you can give.

    Have a nice week-end,

  29. Oh Bev, I am so angry and annoyed with that culprit who deleted his/her name in the inklinz! Bring on that person, I would like to know who he/she is and let all blogger who offer candy to 'blacklist' this person from entering.
    Tx so much for using random generator in the draw, it is so much fun. Just the thought of a winning chance has made me happy and always looking forward to the next draw.
    hugs & best wishes,

  32. What the? I just can't beleive that anyone would do that............ I always thought the most crafty (being the craft crafty and not the nasty crafty) people were all nice people - obviously not. They need to GROW up!
    And go you for telling everyone about it!

  45. Hi Bev, thanks for the chance to win this cute stamp! And I think you've remained VERY calm given the circumstances - some people really don't deserve this chance (and do they not have anything better to do?!!) Susie x

    ReplyDelete
  46. While I usually don't enter your Saturday candy (I don't like Magnolia and why would I take the chance from someone who actually likes the images?) how can anybody complain about who the winner is? Even if you might have slipped the line and mistakenly announced a different winner (which I know did not happen here, just saying "if") - no one would have a reason to complain...you are giving away some of your things for free and all we have to do is spend 10 sec entering a link... no postings etc necessary or even a card or whatever...so who the f*** has a right to complain about who you give it too - you wouldn't even have to give it away at random and could just pick a name you like or whatever...
    I hate people who think they have a right to something even if (or maybe especially?) it's free stuff.. be happy if you get it and if not, it's not like you lost any money or time on it...
    I think for most of us a visit to your blog is because of all the great inspiration we get from your gorgeous cards and the candy is just a very nice, but not necessary, extra...
    I know that I stop by a couple of times a week, even if I have usually not enough time to comment, just to hava a glimpse on what your newest creation is...

    So, don't let such people bother you, I find "ignoring" is a very good way to handle them...

  60. Some people are just born jerks and get a sadistic pleasure from spoiling a good thing. Personally; I feel sorry for them. Hmm who pissed in their cornflakes that morning? I love your blog and you make gorgeous cards. Don't let that idiot get to you.

  61. Thank you so much for offering this cutie - its a highlight of my Saturday entering your candy draw and I am just disgusted that someone is trying to ruin it. You do so much for everyone and do not need this agro - 99.5% of us love your work, your blog and your candy so just ignore the other 0.5% who are just pathetic !!

  72. Awesome candy again Bev! I think your idea is great. It's a shame that people have to do things like that to get attention. You would think the person would have better things to do, but I've just come to realize there are just some crazies in the world! Keep on shining! Hugs, Rosemary

  73. Hya Bev , Thanks for the chance to enter the draw for this little cutie.You are so kind ducky.
    I just can`t understand the way some pathetic creature can, put her oar in, and spoil things for you, and possibly everyone else!!! Who do they think they are ???Whoever they are ,they can`t be crafters , `cos real crafters would rather help than hinder folks. Hope you can find out who`s done this stupid thing , and when you do,then block her or him from your site ducky. That`s all you can do.
    Thankyou once again for your kindness Bev. Big Hugs Cazx

  75. Love this one think I prefer the side on look as I have a problem with there being no mouth and this gives the shape.

    Sorry some smart alec is given you a problem, most crafters are happy sharing people but I supposed all groups have to suffer a few rotten apples.
    Keep up your lovely work

    I bet you're really glad her number didn't come out now - I know I would be! I do hope there is a way of tracking the links, cos if I were you I'd be livid to think this person could win! Shame on her!!!
