Sweet Treat Mini Candy Friday

Well as you know over the last few weeks I have been rewarding my regular commenter's with a little weekend mini candy, this weeks Sweet Treat mini candy is Yummy, its a dozen stamped images from my new HeroArts giant Cupcake stamp (not the one I coloured in that's just to show you how darn yummy they look coloured in) the one's I have stamped for one lucky commenter have been stamped in mementos Black Tuxedo ink on concord card.
If you look at my post below you will see it used in a box project I made this morning for the chocolate orange Muffins that Woody and I made.
Not only will the winner get the dozen images but they will also get the pack of really pretty coloured 51 self adhesive heart theme gems in the photo, I thought they went quite well with this image as there is hearts on the cupcakes.
Right as usual this is what you have to do;
My Rules !! lol

I'm fed up with doing candies and finding loads of people just showing their face for the goodies and then you never see them again until the next time you are giving something away so I want my candy to be different and to go to one of my lovely readers so...............PLEASE DO NOT advertise this candy on your blog if you do you will be removed from the draw, the point of this candy is to reward the lovely people who come here to my blog on a regular basis and leave lovely comments so if you have only popped over to enter the candy don't bother as you will NOT be entered, to be eligible to enter you need to have been here at least 3 times (3 different days) and left at least 3 comments (at least one comment each of the different days) between last Monday and when I do the draw Monday, I post between 1 and 3 times a day so it shouldn't be hard for you find something to comment on Just 3 times in a week!!! lol
So when I do the draw each Monday I will check to see if you are a regular commenter under my rules and if you're not I will pick another winner simple.
Some people won't think this is fair ....but that's the way it is, God I'm a hard woman aren't I !!! lol
So if you would like to be entered in this mini candy please leave your comment on this post
I hope you have a great weekend , I will be back sometime Monday evening to draw a winner

I don't blame you Susie. I'm pretty new to the whole 'blog' thing but I never quite got why anyone would want to give away stuff to a bunch of people who they didn't 'know' just because they saw a link - I guess it's a way to get people to find you but I think it's nice that you 'reward' those you frequent your site. I guess I'd better start leaving comments from now on! Thanks for all the inspiration. I love your cards.

Susie .... you may be a hard woman, but its the only way candy works ..... give it to your regulars, those who follow you and enjoy what you produce. I have to say I have never seen a cup cake image as big as this one, its absolutely fab .... good enough to eat just like the choco cakes you made! lol. Claire x

Love those cakes,Susie....and don't blame you at all for only wanting them to go to actual followers.

i don't think you're asking too much, Susie! i'm tired of the candy-hunters, myself, and love the idea of making sure they follow and comment, rather than just putting the candy in the sidebar and waiting to see if they've won, then they stop following. nervy!

Cheryl said...

Not here for the candy. I follow your blog thru google reader and I wanted to say "Great job!" I love how you are running your candy give aways. Have a great week end.

Lynne in NI said...

Oh your colouring on the cupcake is fabulous Susie!
And I think you're quite right about being selective who gets your candy!

I went down to hit comments and caught a glimpse of your muffins, thats what you need to give away, lol, man they look good. The cupcake stamp is adorable and I love it on the box, great job.

Paula Gale said...

Hi Suzie - I don't claim to be a regular commentor - BUT - I totally agree with your ground rules... fairs fair - and you have some lovely followers who come to you time and time again. If people don't like it - they're probably the ones who do exactly what you're trying to avoid - so good on you.

Hi Susie I don't blame you I find it a little deflating when someone only leaves a comment just for the candy and don't really appreciate the creativity and inspiration that is shown on a regular basis on a blog. Candy doesn't figure high on my list as I prefer to visit blogs to see the wonderful work that is being shown and the joy it brings me to see such talented crafter's. I very rarely advertise candy only a couple if I know the crafter's are quite new to the land of blog and want some visitors otherwise I prefer to get my sweetness from people like you lol.

Hugs

Hi Susie, sorry just working backwards so have'nt seen Woodies muffins yet, I know my son and hubby would love them chocolate and all, and if they are half as good as the stamped image looks I'm sure they will be delicious, though I wouldn't eat them as chocolate gives me headaches and we all get enough of those from daily life don't we.
I think your rules are fab but you are making alot of work for yourself but no you're not a hard woman at all . Thanks for sahring and now I'm off to spy Woodies muffins,thanks for sahring Julye

Rainmac said...

I love your cupcake box and the cupcakes look and sound delicious, please keep me one ;-)

Samantha said...

I totally understand I try to stop by your blog and other blogs a couple of times a week, but don't always have time to leave a comment!

Lori said...

Way to go, Susie! Hopefully this will begin a new 'trend' to stop the candy hunters! I'm going to have to remember this when I post my next candy. Thanks!!!
Love and hugs ~ Lori

Susie,

That is a good way to know if your followers are really interested in your work or candy. I have also heard from others of the same problem.

As always, your cards are always beautiful to look at.

Joynana said...

I think that since it your blog and your candy you can do what you want. I am a follower, but I have not been a regular visitor. But, my time is short. So if I leave a message on three separate days in the week, Can I be in the drawing? If not thats ok, I will still be back.

Marjo said...

I definitely don't care about the candy..I am with you the candy gets in the way! Sometimes it seems that it stops creativity. I just started blogging to learn from all the talented people out there in "blog & Youtube Land" I love the challenges because it stops me from just looking and gets me doing! I am more interested in the creativity process than the "Candy" I know I will get booted from this since I only comment sometimes, and I only enter Challenges if I like the Challenge. Thanks for all you do!
