Wow that's a tough question. Can I choose two of my favourite Chrimbo pressies?? One is my netbook and the other was a purse with a picture of my kids on it.

Thanks for the chance to win. Have a fab Christmas. x

Fiona said...

Debbi...what fab candy. I just love Sugar Nellie too but I'm not sure if I prefer promarkers or copics..I love them both. Since I had my children I prefer to wait for the sales to buy something but I do remember not long after my hubby and I started going out...he gave me a jar of roses...I was raging thinking I have spent a fortune on him and all he has bought me is a jar of roses...well he insisted that I opened them...he had managed to get the seal off and back on but he had hidden a gold watch inside the jar amongst the that was nice. I sure do hope I get a new sewing machine this year in the sales!!


Wrightboysmum said...

Oh my fav present has to be my DSLR camera I got early this year as DH didn't want me to go to NY without it. Fab candy and have a good one whne it comes. I'm in Christmas panic mode at the moment lol.

Lorraine said...

Samantha said...

Wow what a great Christmas present this would be to win!

Happy Christmas :) xx

Aussie Loz said...

Hi Debbi, this candy WILL be my best xmas gift hehe! Seriously I'm not sure... I love my wok and use it almost every night, not very 'crafty' but def the best! Thanks so much for the chance to win, I love those Sugar Nellies too, would love them!! (And gasp... promarkers!!) ♥

ddinak said...

Well, I'd have to give my dear hubby credit for totally surprising me one year with new slippers! He had to draw my old ones on paper to get the size right. I couldn't believe he'd go to so much trouble but he was probably sick of looking at my old hole ridden ones!

Larisa said...

Great giveaway!!!
The best gift I received was the hair shampoo from my husband 0)) He thinks it is not important to give the gifts to any of us although he had nothing against to receive the presents himself. So I am neve spoilt with gifts, sorry.
I linked it on sidebar. Thanks for nice chance to win)))
hugs. Larisa. xxx

paola said...

I dont celebrate Xmas, but today is my birthday and i hope this will do!as so far this is the best birthday EVER! i have so many friends since i have been blogging, that i am overwhelmed with good wishes, i have4 never had so many wishes in all my life. And the cherry on my cake was that my children are old enough now to know about birthdays and TRY to make it special, so i had coffee delivered to me in bed and a few hand made prezzies from them that just swelled my heart to bursting. Thanks for the chance to win a REAL prezzie of crafting stash.

Ashley said...

Annelies said...

The present I definitely used the most was a bonnet my father gave me a couple of years ago. It's really perfect for my other hobby, often in the freezing cold: bird watching! I'm following and there's a link in my sidebar . Thanks for a chance to win great candy! Greetings from Belgium, Annelies

Lorraine said...

OOPS!!! Sorry i forgot to tell you my best ever christmas gift well mine has to be my beautiful dog Blade who is now almost 4 but my bigshot last year is a close second lol i love it xx

Kym's Crafty Cards said...

Debbi, oh what lovely candy you have on offer. My boys aged 14 and 18 wanted to know what I wanted for Christmas this year - I replied a visit from Tim Holtz. Needless to say that's not possible so I am hoping that I get one of his paper pads as I fell in love with them at the NEC. We don't going into Christmas presents big in our house but to have anything of Tim's or anything crafty would make it the best ever. I have put a link to your candy in my sidebar. Best wishes, Kym xxx

scotspanda said...

Stampersue said...

What a great selection of candy - you are sooooo generous.

Several years ago my lovely son bought me a Big Shot from his first job (he saved up) and I didn't know anything about it until it arrived. It was such a lovely thing for him to do and I was so surprised. The best Christmas gift ever.


Sarah said...

What fabulous candy on offer - first of all Merry Christmas and all the best for 2011 - and congrats on getting to the second round your competition - your blog is just so inspirational and your promarker tutorials etc have been a real help to me - thank you.
For my best present -it had to be crafting goodies - my husband (for once) listened and noted I was into a certain stamp collection and bought some for me - previous to this he bought me a hoover one year a blender another! still they all come in useful and it good to receive anything.
Hugs Sarahx

Hi Debbi

Not sure if I am doing this properly (first time lol) but will give it a try.

My best Christmas present ever was getting my darling daughter home for Christmas after her being seriously ill at birth. Twenty years on she is still my favourite present that nothing will ever compare to.

Now to post on my side bar (that is a task in itself lol)

Hi there Debbi, thanks for the chance to take part in your fab candy draw! I've added your deets to my candy bar and become a follower.
I think my best pressie was from my mum the Christmas before my daughter was born she told me she'd get me a last big pressie and it was a fabulous Sewing Machine! My daughter is 19 months now and i can't wait to see her on Christmas afternoon opening all her pressies.. (unfortunately i have to work in the morning).
Thanks again and have a fantastic week!

Message Keeper said...

Thanks, Debbi for a wonder candy! I post this on my blog sidebar and become your follower.

The best Christmas gift I had is four years ago when I gave birth to my beloved daughter. She arrives early and I guess she just wanted to celebrate her full one month together with Christmas with us!

Dragonlady said...

My best Christmas present is spending time with my husband and two daughters - that is all I wish for now.

Hi Debbie, Lovely of you to offer such great candy, Promarkers & Sugar Nellie stamps, a great combo if ever there was! Well my best Christmas present is a hard one, there have been so many, but this year I give Santa 2 choices he either;

All I want for Christmas is black roads again! (So I can get to your class!)

Merry Christmas, Jx

craftymum said...

Great Candy. Thank you. I don't celebrate Xmas but the best gift I had this year was when my daughter said she would come with us on holiday this year. She hadn't holidayed with us for 3 years. The 4 of us went to New York and a Caribbean cruise. I think I was the happiest mum around. My family all together. Priceless!!!!!
hugs Sarah x

Teresa said...

Thanks so much for the chance to win. I just love these Sugar Nellie stamps...I don't have any yet, it has been a tough year, but hopefully the worst is behind us!! My favorite christmas gift was a cross necklace my son bought for me with his own money. Best wishes to all for a happy holiday!! Hugs, Teresa E.

PAULA said...

Hi Debbi,
Saw you at the Papetrie and have become pretty much fallen in love with promarkers. I really wasn't having much success with them until I saw your demos. I bought some of the Sugar Nellie gorguss girls stamps and incorporated these stamps and the promarkers in my christmas cards, it really has spurred my enthusiasm in stamping again. I gave hubby a list of promarkers I would like for Christmas and I can feel a wee bundle under the tree that feels just like that! I also asked for a cuttlebug, but nothing resembling that under the tree! I think my best Christmas present was a sewing machine I got when I was about 8, don't do much sewing now, but still own a sewing machine, although not the same one! Your blog candy is fab, the stamps are beautiful of course.

I don't have a blog, so can't post a link to your blog candy, sorry. Have a lovely Christmas and all the best for 2011.

Paula said...

The best Christmas present I ever received unwrapped that I didn't know about was a Vintage Parker Fountain pen my Mum bought me a few years before she died. It was such a surprise & she'd taken such a lot of trouble over it.

Thanks for the chance of winning some mroe pens to add to my collection of colouring utensils.

Jenn Zeeb said...

I am now a PROUD follower and posted a link on my blog. I have to say my best Christmas prezzie would have to be my son Nikolas. He was born a wee bit early and got to join us for Christmas. We had to put a note on the front door because we were to have our Christmas party that night. He was diagosed with bipolar disorder, but is a joy. That was 13 years ago. WOW. Thanks for the opportunity. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
