Blog Candy

I can't quite believe I've had 5000 visitors to my blog in such a short time. I'm so overwhelmed,and have had such lovely comments left on my cards and scrapbook pages. As a little thank you to everyone who visits,I'm going to give away some lovely blog candy as a HUGE thank you. As I like to think I'm part cardmaker and part scrapbooker (some might disagree!) I've included stash that I think will appeal to both.
Here's a little rundown of what's included and some pictures.

12x12 Paperpack from The Little Yellow Bicycle range called The Delightful Collection which you can see here
3 12x12 of the decorative edged papers from the same range.
A selection of 8x8 papers from Papermania and Dovecraft.
1 Fancy Pants acetate overlay (Polka Dot Border)
1 pack of Fancy Pants Sweet and Pretty Pins

1 pack of Basic Grey Buttons
1 pack of Karen Foster Fancy Brads

1 pack of Dovecraft Glitter Brads (Retro Floral)
2 packs of Studio G Clear Stamps
3 Craftwork Card Embossed Scalloped Frames
A selection of blooms from my stash including some Flora Doodles
Some gorgeous ribbon
A selection of stamped images including
Bellas,Flowers,Fairies and some others.

What I'd like you to do is leave a comment telling me what your favourite rock song is and link to my Blog Candy.
If you want you're also w
elcome to make a card or scrapbook page with a rock theme.
I'll get Louis to pick a name at random hopefully by next Sunday night (11th May)
Have fun!



    I am not sure I am doing this right but put down to age!!! If not then sorry :(
    Also age might accounts for the reason why I have chosen this 'Rock' song. Just and all time favourite of mine. First record my DH bought me. Seems to have worked we have been married 38 years :)

  2. My current favourite is Nickelback 'Rockstar'. All the kids in my class (11 year olds) love it, but I daren't play it as there is a 'rude' word!! The kids all can sing it though! I have to admit that my first love has always been Status Quo - 'Rocking all over the world'. Thumbs in belt loops and shake that hair!!!

  3. Oh how come I missed your blog, a girl after my own heart...we love all things rock in our house and I'm particularly partial to some Poison Nothin But A Good Time and of course classic G'n'R fans, keep rockin hun xxx

  4. Hi Cass - what amazing candy!! My favourite rock song is Born to Run, Bruce Springsteen. I remember hearing it for the first time when I was quite young and it made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck. Have linked to your candy.

  5. You know when I visited now you were playing my fav rock star, Bon Jovi and seeing him in June at Twickenham sooooo excited!!!!
    My fav song is 'blame it on the love of rock and roll' and second fav is Aerosmith I don't wanna miss a thing which I had at our wedding back down the aisle after being married. Didn't go down well with a set of grandparents though!
    I think like you I am a rock chick at heart!

  6. wow congratulations , i will have to add a link later on my blog but my fave rock song has to be something from nickleback how you remind me ...dont know if this is right link !!!!

  7. Congrats on 5,000 visitors! Lovin your creative artwork. Count me in on this sweet candy celebration.
    My rock song would be....Takin' Care Of Business - BTO. Thanks for a chance.

  8. Hi Cass
    Congrats on the 5000 - my fav song has to be Status Quo - Rocking all over the World - showing my age now. Will put a link on my blog.
    Great candy by the way


    Ok, so maybe it's not exactly rock rock, but it's a great song and Michael Bolton is classified as classic rock (I think LOL).

    Yummy looking candy by the way. Some great looking stuff there.

  10. Congrats on your many, many hits... and to many more hits to come!

    Oh! I love GNR - Don't Cry, November Rain. Bon Jovi and Def Leppard ;)

    Linked your candy HERE! Thank you!

  11. Pick just ONE? Are you funning me? That is like picking your favorite child. LOL!

    Here is what I'm listening to currently:

    Looooooooooooooove Biiiiiiiiiiiiites by Def Leppard. :D We saw them last year at Marysville...just a bit up the road from us. And yes, there were plenty of mullets. They still rock it! changed...oh wait, NOT admitting I have this on my iPod. LOL!

  12. can i pick bruce springsteen's entire back catalogue??? if i have to choose one it would be The River or If I Should Fall Behind (which we had as our first dance at our wedding!)

  13. Black Betty by Ram used to be my 'getting ready to go to the Solid Rock' song...still play it now when i NEED not to be a 35 year old mother!!!
    But then there's 'Ace of Spades' or maybe 'Mr Brownstone' choose!!!
    Link on my site in onw little mo...

  14. My favorite rock song is "Bad to the Bone" by George Thorogood and the Destroyers. Awesome candy, Cass. My cousins all live in Glasgow - great town!

  15. Wow - awesome blog candy! First of all I am in the US, if that matters :-) My favorite rock song (it's an oldie) is Play That Funky Music by the Average White Band - that tells my age, huh??

  16. Hi Cass! May I become one of your friends? LOL How could I missed your blog? Someone who loves rock music AND cardmaking!!! Its hard to pick up just one song as I love so many late 80's-early 90's rock bands... Lets see... My heart can't choose between "Still of the night" by Whitesnake or "Shake and Tumble" by firehouse... oh and Lillian Axe! LOL Congrats for all your great cardmaking and scrapbooking creations!

  17. Anything by the Foo Fighters - but my fave is Learn to Fly. Dave Grohl is just sex on a stick!!

  18. Cool I love rock music!
    allsorts from Nirvana, chillies, Foos, Metallica:
    See if it works!
    Thanks for the inspiration

  19. Hiya Cass,

    I'm a bit of a rock chick myself so I'm struggling to choose just one - guess it all depends on my mood but my fave at the moment is Don't Stop Believin by Journey (who I saw in concert last year and TOTALLY recommend)

    I also have a bit of a thing for Bon Jovi (like who wouldn't!), Aerosmith, some Metallica and classic GnR (Patience has a special somewhere!)

    Off to put a link on my blog

Wow what fantastic blog candy and congrats on your over 5000 hits .. not surprised your work is lovely ... how I've not been here before being a fellow rock chick I don't know ... asking me to pick one song ... oh dear .. I love it all .. although am more of the devil chanting rock music creature of the night .. Stonesour, Slipknot, Flyleaf, Foos .. a favourite song well you gotta have a Guns and Roses .. Sweet Child O Mine has to be a classic but then you've got Metallica One awesome guitars .. Def Leppard, Bon Jovi erm erm erm ... rock is an obsession

  40. wow congratulations on 5000 hits !! you have a wonderful blog and i love rockstar by nickleback !! Thanks for the chance to win some awesome blog candy and good luck with your next 5000

  41. WONDERFUL BLOG CANDY!!!! I really don't have a fav rock song... I love most soft rock... but my Ex-husband's fav rock song is "pour Some Sugar On Me"... SERIOUSLY!!!! Thank for the chance to win.

  42. favorite rock song - Your mom don't dance by Poison is one my favorites. (am I showing my age???)

    Posted about your blog candy on my blog here:

    Congrats on your 5000 vistors.

  43. Pour Some Sugar On Me is definitely a favorite one. My sister and I used to spin and spin and spin then fall down to this song (we were young in case you didn't know). More current, I love Incubus. That's a band and not a song, but I like a LOT of their songs. I made this card a little while ago, but it is just perfect as far as rock theme, so here is a link:
    Hope you like it!

  44. How generous of you?! Stacks of lovely stuff! Right, down to favourite rock song is 'The Bends' by Radiohead, closely followed by 'Its a Kind of Magic' by Queen. I think we can safely say I have 'eclectic' tastes in music! ~x~

  45. Woooaaahhh, Livin' on a prayer...!! Thats's my fave, (if it's even a rock song - I think it is!) I'm going to have it in my head all day now!! Thanks for the chance of a fab prize and congratulations on your blogging milestone!

  46. Hi Cass, just came across your blog and noticed your blog candy. My favourite rock group, couldn't pick just 1 soz so its between Def Leppard and Ozzy Osbourne. I just finished a scrapbook page last night of the Def Leppard concert that my OH and I saw in 2002, please go over and take a look. Karen

  47. Hi Cass, fabulous Candy! My favourite rock song has to be Nirvana - Smells like teen spirit!
    Congratulations on your 5000 hits! Loving your blog, Justine

  48. Hi Cass I have to admit that Im not really a rocker. However I have to listen to it all the time as my hubby is a huge Deep Purple ,Whitesnake,Dio fan. If I have to choose my favourite song from a rock band I would choose all right now by free .I know ,I know not exactly heavy but still classed as rock I hope.
    hugs from Karen

  49. Thanks for offering the fun blog candy. I think Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody is my favorite Rock song of all time. I generally like most of the Rolling Stones songs too. I'm not into the heavier stuff, but I'm crazy about the good old fashion Rock & Roll music:)

  50. by far my fav is a golden oldy haha has to be bon jovi living on a prayer!!! love it makes me wanna sing everytime even ashaara who is 15 months loves this song cause i play it soooo often im sure she'l hate me for it when shes older haha

    your candy looks fab!
    thanks for giving us the oppurtunity to win it
    kelly x

  51. Congrats Cass on such a great accomplishment! What an amazing prize to a lucking winner! And also a cool way to add rock into the mix...picking ONE favorite rock song took some time. I can barely narrow it down to one song per album of my favorite bands. So I decided to go with my favorite song by my favorite band Metallica and the song is 2x4. I posted your contest and a simple rock LO I did on my blog over at

  52. Wow, thats' a lot of candy. Well I hope to reach the 5000 too one day, but by now my counter says 00001 :(, but you have to start somewhere.

    Well my favourite rock song will be "Paradise by the dashbordlight" from Meatlove.

    Now I just gotta link you.
