My first ever blog candy!

Onions and Paper is 2½ years old yet I've never given away any candy - which considering how much I love competitions in my "other life" is very remiss of me!

But that's all about to change, because the lovely Gill (who I first met through our love of competitions) from FoilPlay  has offered me FIVE  Kanban lucky dip packs to give away. Each pack will contain around 20 sheets and be a mixture of Christmas and everyday designs.

Every pack will be different, but the pictures give you an idea of the scrumptious selection that was in the pack that Gill very kindly sent to me. You could get toppers:

or even a sheet containing everything you will need to make a complete card:

I reckon I'll be able to make at least 40 card from my pack of goodies. If you'd like the chance to get your hands on a pack, follow the instructions below:

Click on the blue button to add your name and email address. As I know a lot of you who read this don't have blogs of your own, I've not made the blog URL field compulsory - but if you DO have a blog, whatever you blog about, I'd love it if you included it so I can pop over and say hello!

Please only enter once, if you enter more than once, only one entry will be counted.

Because of the cost of postage, this candy is only open to UK residents.

The giveaway will close on  October 31st at midnight and this post will remain pinned to the top of the blog until then (scroll down if you want to see what's happening in between times!). I'm hoping that the linky will allow me to contact the winners by email but I've never used one before, so just in case it doesn't, please, please PLEASE check back here on November 1st when the winners names will be announced. As an extra aid to help me contact you, it would help me a lot if you leave your name and Twitter name in the comments.

Because it's my first candy, and open to non-bloggers as well as bloggers, I'm not going to make any sharing or following compulsory - but also because it's my first, I'd really like word spread far and wide, so please DO consider sharing this with your friends, mentioning it on your blog or Facebook page or on any forum s you belong to.

And if you'd like to follow me, using the Bloglovin, GFC or email sign up options on the right, I'd love you forever!
