1 Year Blogaversary Giveaway!!!

The candy is now closed. Thank you!!!
 Hi everyone and welcome to my 1st year Blogaversary!
I can't believe only one year elapsed since I started blogging, I had the feeling I've been doing this forever:) But with Christmas drawing near and all the fuss and Chrissy cards, it just dawned on me I had to celebrate something else too:)
So, I thought I'd take advantage of this to thank each and everyone of you for being there for me over the past year. I have met the most beautiful people from all over the world and I'm really thankful for that. I only wish days had more hours to spend them with you all and also to make lovely cards! I also hope I could provide a little inspiration for some of you on the way and hope to be able to do this in the future too!
Thank you everyone!
Here's my candy for you:

I chose 3 of my dearest shopping places:) and thought I'd leave it to you to visit them and get whatever fits your imagination! So that means I'll be having 3 winners by December 14th!

- 1st winner will get a 6 $ voucher to spend on Mo's Digital Pencil  shop!
Mo Manning's images have been my very first stamps and their realistic unique sweetness, humour and versatility quickly turned them into my favorite images. I'm so proud and happy to have joined Mo's design team a few months ago and thus continue to work with her images on a permanent basis! It's like a dream (I never dreamt come true!

- 2nd winner  will receive a 15 £ gift voucher  to spend at Lili of the Valley. These cute little stamps have found a way into my heart and I just cannot resist their innocence and delicacy. So I thought I'd include them in my gift for you:)

-3rd winner will receive a 25 £ voucher to Bunny Zoe's Crafts, one of my favourite places to shop for crafting supplies! They have great shipping prices too and ships all over the world. So everybody is welcome to enter my candy!

Now, I only have a few requirements for you in order to enter the draw. Please, don't mind, I find them completely honest:)
1. Please be or become a follower of my blog.
2. Leave your name and blog link with Mr. Linky below. If you don't have a blog just check back on December 14th see if you won and let me know of your details then.
3. I would love you to add the candy picture with a link back to my blog on your sidebar but this is not mandatory.

I will use to pick the winners on the 15th and post them here. I will then contact the winners so no need for you to check back if you leave the contact
Hope all of you will take a moment to enter Mr. Linky below, don't forget, I have 3 prizes for you so more chances not to be missed!!!
Thank you everybody for your continuous support over the past year; love you all!
