PARTY! Day one....

Welcome to my week long blog party, lots of fun, lots of games and lots of prizes to be won. I have arranged this to say a huge thank you to all my followers, and those who subscribe by email. I recently reached over 2,000 followers, and there are another 1,800 of you who get a daily email. In addition, 1/2 a million of you have been over here to visit me, so if that isn't a good enough reason to party, I don't know what is. Who needs birthdays to get in the party spirit? Not us.....
For those who get an email, you will need to come over here to join in the fun, at the bottom of your email is a link to Going Buggy, click on that and come on over
Each day will feature a new mini competition, and a new bunch of prizes. The comments for each competition will be kept open until midnight GMT (7:00 PM EST) on Saturday 22nd January. The winners (and there will be a lot of you!) will be announced on Sunday 23rd January. If you have a blog, PLEASE post this on there - a party is always better with lots of peeps
Right, let's party. I have chosen this little challenge first, so that you have a full ten days to join in. Let's look at the prizes for today first.......... if you are from Australia or elsewhere, choose which candy you would like to win :)
Two winners for this first day....................................
For America and Canada....
You will get:
A pack of Papermania UK paper, matching embellishments and tiny heart shaped spotty buttons
a pack of springy things - hard to find in the USA, these make your projects wobble!
2 packs of Polkadoodles flutterby fairies rubber stamps (Maggie and Gracie, my favourites!)
Popcorn the Bear rubber stamp set
Seven ProMarkers and rubber ProMarker holder
Cinnamon
Dusky Pink
Pastel Green
Pastel Pink
Ivory
Pastel Beige
Pastel Yellow




and for the UK and Europe:
Martha Stewart deep border punch Infinity
Martha Stewart tinsel glitter set - 12 colours
Martha Stewart glitter clean-up cloth
Cuttlebug Cut and Emboss die and embossing folder 'Birthday Wishes'





So how do you win?
I'm setting you to work, you are going to GO BUGGY
Make a card, for any occasion, any shape, any size, any technique, but it MUST have a bug on it - I am going to be generous and call butterflies, dragon flies, bees etc bugs. You have until Friday 21st January to enter your card

Post it on your blog or a forum, then use the Mr Linky below to enter your card. If you don't have a blog, put it into a (free) Flickr account, that will give you a URL to upload your photo here. Make sure you say in your blog post what country you live in.

Here's my card to start you off, made with the Boys will be Boys Cricut cartridge


Click on the photos below to visit the blogs and view the cards, leave a bit of love on the way - YOU are going to vote for your favourites later next week

I'll be back tomorrow with another competition and more prizes..........you could win something every day for a whole week
