  10. Oh wow what amazing candy, thank you.

    I first got into card making when i moved to the house i'm in, which is 7 years ago and i haven't looked back.

    I'm inspired by papers and cute stamps, then of course there's the commitment of making cards for birthdays (especially my 5 year old son's friends !!) i also send 10 Xmas, Fathers Day, Valentines Day and Mothers Day cards to a lady in Sheffield, who in turn sends them on to the British troops based in Afghanistan.

    I would love to win the first candy with the HM stamps, as i don't have many and would love to enter more HM challenges, thanks for the opportunity, luv Sam x

  11. wow! what amazing candy. I'd like to enter, ive linked your candy on my blog, and if i won id like to win candy 1 as it has house mouse in it! Ive crafted for 8 years, and still love it. me and my mum donate our cards to animal charities, to help homeless dogs and cats.

    I;d love the first candy as i dont have much halloween themed goodies, especially in house mouse.

    Thank you, Natalie

  12. Wow America, super gorgeous candy. If I was lucky enough to win I really wouldn't mind either, both fabulous. I suppose my all time inspiration comes from colour, whether the season, fashion collections that sort of thing. Thanks for the chance and of course your amazing inspiration. Jane x

  13. oh my goodness what yummy candy !! both are lovely but me heart belongs to meeces :)
    What inspires me ,,, bloggers ! I pick up tips and hints and and use them on my creations ,, I learn from everyone and I love that we all share and learn from each other :-) this crafty community is FAB !! :-)

    Lols x x x

  14. Let me just say this: House Mouse. Dressed up as a dragon. So darn cute. Which is to say, I would definitely choose the first candy.

    I don't know that I properly ought to be entering this, because I usually don't make cards. I like to make bookmarks -- basically skinny card fronts. I have a great many books, and the cover illustration or title is often wonderful for inspiration... although so are challenges! Combining lots of challenges is fun and inspiring in and of itself.

  15. Wow, it's such a huge giveaway! They are both great, but I choose the second candy, it's closer to me with all these lovely stamps and charms))) And speaking about inspiration, well everything I see inspires me)))

  16. You said it America, that is an AWESOME blog candy. I would so love to have a chance at winning the Autumn/Fall Blog Candy, I'm not much for Halloween. I'm an old follower of both your blog and the HM&FCB.
    What inspires me to make cards is the wonderful feedback you get when you send a card to a friend and what it means to a family member when you give them one. And plus its FUN. Thanks for the wonderful chance.
    Hugs, Rosalee

  17. I follow and have for a long time. I'd love to win either of these wonderful candies! I love making cards and have been doing this for 4 years now. I've actually made cards for over 20 years just using Word and clipart off the net at a previous job for co-workers and such.
    Thanks so much for a chance to win!

  18. Hi America first thank you for this candy to win.
    they are stunning.
    To make cards with all those beautiful images and stamps is fabulous.
    They are so many blogs all over the world and they all looks different and everybody has there own style.
    That is great to see.
    And if I would win I would like that yummie package number two with all those great and beautiful charms, because I use them a lott.
    Thanks America for this change.

    greetings karin

  21. Fantastic candy! Thanks for the chance! I love the stamps a lot!
    I am a follower.
    I linked it on sidebar

  22. Dear America,
    wow, what great candies you want to share with us. At first thank you so much for the chance to win them. It's so generous of you.
    I'm a big big fan of House-Mouse-Designs and also took part in one of the challenges of the House-Mouse-and-Friends-Monday-Challenge blog. That was really fun and I love to see all the pictures of cards people created for the challenges. That always inspires me.
    The best thing about crafting for me is that you can create something special for your friends and family. It makes a gift more precious when you made it on your own and I always love to see the surprised faces of my family and friends when they open their self made gifts.
    I also love to decorate our home with things I make as it makes our home even more special. And the other good thing is that while crafting, I can relax and get down a bit after a day at work. I love to listen to my favourite music, drink a nice coffee and craft away. That's the best for me to do in the evening.
    I would appreciate the first candy as I love the little House Mouse Designs and I don't have them yet. The House Mouse Designs always remind me of our two gerbils Max and Maurice. :-) They're also always in mischief like the little mice on the House-Mouse stamps.
    I'm wishing you a fantastic Tuesday and again thank you so much for the chance to win these fantastic candies.

  23. making my little Grand Children Cards. So they can keep them and remember what Fun we had together. I would LOVE to win the Halloween Giveaway! Oh, I have been wanting that Fence Punch! Thanks so much for the chance to win! I'm now a follower and a follower of the House Mouse and Friends Blog. I added your Awesome giveaway to my Sidebar with a link back to your blog! Again, Thanks for the chance to win! :0)

  25. Wow, it's such a huge giveaway! They are both great, but I choose the second candy, ..since I really dont care for Halloween...And speaking about inspiration, What inspires me is visiting other cardmakers blogs ..linked ur giveaway on my sidebar..thanks for being so generous

  27.
