Weekly candy

I’ve been mulling over the candy issue again (too much time on my hands haha) and was going to select a name from the comments left this week as the candy winner but then got to thinking ….. I don’t want people to feel they have to leave a comment else they won’t stand a chance of winning, I have seen blogs that do this and sorry it’s not for me.  You leave a comment because you want to, not because you have to. You follow my blog because you want to, not because you have to.  Yes it’s lovely to read all your fab comments, no denying that but not all my followers have English as their first language and may not be comfortable leaving a comment.  There is also the time factor, some do not have time to leave a comment, hey I’m fine with that and also guilty of that! 

Sooooo I am leaving it as it has always been, entry via linky. I am also going to put in the option to delete your link should you inadvertently enter more than once.  This option will be removed once the candy has closed so no more changes can be made once the winner has been drawn.

And this week up for grabs is a Sarah Kay stamp and a Belles ‘n Whistles stamp.

  5. that is so true, sometimes I look at posts with lovely work but commenting means loads of extra clicks. I wish there was a button I could just press and it would automatically say I was here to admire your work. =)

  22. Hi Bev, thought I would let you know I love your blog I go through it time and time again ,sometimes just to see what you've done with a certain stamp, then it's from a blog hop and I go wandering without leaving a message, this is just to let you know you are very talented, very sharing and best of all a lovely person, so if you don' t hear from me you will know I am looking and saying thank you in my heart.
    Hugs Ann

  24. When I look through the comments, it has all been said by someone else. It can be very difficult to think of saying the same thing in a different way. So for the record I think all your work is amazing, I look every day, you give me inspiration! Thank you for taking the time to do your draws, and to all that enter, put in your details.... Once... Check back later, it never fails, there can be up to 20 or more people doing the same at the same time! Give Bev a break she does not need all the aggro! XxjuliexX

  48. Hi Bev. Thanks for offering more gorgeous stamps as candy.

    Regarding the duplicating of entries, it is possible that they haven't realised they have added themselves a second time? I have found that sometimes when I have entered a challenge that my card's image isn't showing even though the link is there. Refeshing the page often cures it, but not always! Just wondered if this might account for a few multiple entries.
