Sweets for my sweet, pressies for my candy!!!!! Blog Candy Time!!

Hello my friends,
Edited to add:  If Mr Linky won't let you add your name more than once then just put x 4 after your name if you did all four requirements - thanks.  I will sort out the entries at the close of the candy.
Well, I have had such a fantastic time in blog land since starting last July I thought it was about time I did a blog candy giveaway. Bear with me here for a while - it will be well worth the wait I promise.
Last July whilst chatting to my friend Ali (aka Dragonlady) she told me she had started a blog and that I should give it a go. So I did a posting but didn't get many comments and thought of giving it up.  Ali (bless her) insisted (and yes, I do mean INSISTED!!) I should give it another go and ....... well let's just say the rest is history.
I have been such a lucky girl in blog land, won a couple of candy's, won some challenges and best of all have been invited to be a Guest DT on several blogs and am now lucky enough to be a permanent DT member on three Design Teams.
Wendy (aka Louby Loo) over at Digital Delights offered me a position as a Tutorial Artist last October and I thoroughly enjoyed it, and recently handed over the reins to Tammy who is an excellent tutorial artist.
I have had several Guest DT spots amongs which were Sketch and Stash in December 2009/January 2010 and Inktegrity in December 2009.  Recently I have been asked to be a Guest DT on the new blog challenge site at I Love Digi - my first card for them will be 4th March so look out for that! I am also lucky enough to be on the Creative Inspirations DT team and the Ooh La La Creations DT team both of these following on from periods as a Guest Designer - thank you to both for inviting me.
Now one particular Guest DT spot was for Softpencil digital images when the lovely Elizabeth asked me to accept a GDT spot for December 2009.  I thank you Elizabeth from the bottom of my heart - your images are divine and you are one of the sweetest most generous people I know.  Please, if you haven't been to Elizabeth's blog before (and I can't believe you haven't!!) you really should visit, not only are there some fabulous images by Elizabeth there are also Mandala Digital Stamps by her sister. 
Elizabeth has very kindly donated a $10 voucher to be spent in her store - thank you so much Elizabeth my friend.  So please pop along to her blog and have a look at her fabulous images - you won't be disappointed!
Then I was asked to be a Guest Designer for Ooh La La Creations Challenge blog - Oh My Word - you should see their CD collection.  Their images are so marvellous - so diverse - so sophisticated.  You should go along and see what they have in their store - you will be amazed. 

Wendi and Emma have kindly given me permission to give one of their CD's - Dreams of Tranquility as one of the items in my blog candy - thank you girls.

My other permanent DT post was, until this week,  with Digital Ink Co which was formed by Judy of M&M Designz.  Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond her control, Judy has had to close the Digital Ink Co store and the challenge blog..  The other creators that had been part of Digital Ink Co are - (in no particular order - I've always wanted to say that!LOL) Lexi of Lexi's Creations, Kathy of Stitchy Stamps, Donna of Lil Diva Stamps, Jules of Daisy Doodles, Sue of Beary Dust and CJ of Stampen with CJ.  These are a very talented bunch of ladies and you really should hop on over to take a look at their blogs where you can see more of their fabulous work.  Lexi  has very kindly donated 5 of her images as part of my blog candy - thank you so much Lexi - I'm very grateful.
So, to recap, so far we have a $10 voucher for Softpencil, a CD from Ooh La La Creations and Five Images from Lexi's Doodles  A huge big thank you to all of these generous friends - I feel very privileged to know you all and to be associated with your products.

3.  Please post my blog candy photo either in a sidebar link or do a short post for my candy to help spread the word.

6.  Please leave me a comment telling me you have done all of the above.  When you leave your comment please let me know what your favourite digital image is.
You don't have to do all of the above - just do the one's you want to do and enter your name the appropriate number of times - that's fine with me!
This candy will be drawn on Good Friday 2nd April and I will do my best to announce the winner the same day.
Good luck everyone.
