GIVEAWAY!!!


(Update 25/10/10 - sorry everyone, but the competition is now closed. See here for the winner...)

Finally...my first giveaway.  I have been promising myself one for ages.  I had thought to celebrate my 200th follower with a giveaway and then 250, but those milestones came and went. 
So how could I let this birthday go without a giveaway?  I couldn't!  So I have organised myself and jolly well sorted one out!
I want to say thankyou to all you fabulous readers of my blog.  I really didn't think a year ago I would still be blogging, I thought it would be a just another craze but I have come enjoy  so much being able to share my projects and ideas with the bogging community I'm never going to stop!  And it is such a privelege for me that people want to read about them and take time to leave such lovely comments. So as a big big thankyou to you all here are my first giveaway prizes.

 1 .Two Hooty Owl cookies from Nevie-Pie Cakes. (see above)

 2. A cute felt cupcake curtesy of the lovely Marie from Heartfelt Handmade.

 
3.  Two picnic/lunch bags from Amelie's House made from mexican oil cloth.

 4. Twelve fondant cupcake toppers painted with Autumn scenes from Nevie-Pie Cakes.  Click here to see them in action.

5. An Amelie's House felt brooch.

To win all of these goodies all you need to do is be a follower of Amelie's House and leave me a comment letting me know what you would paint on a cake or cookie.  You can also have extra entry into the draw if you link to this giveaway on your own blog or twitter or facebook.  But please tell me via the comments below or I won't know. The competition is open to everyone.
I will draw the lucky name out of a hat on Monday 25th Oct 12pm BST.
Once again thankyou for all your encouragement and good luck!

  1. Congratulations on your blogiversary! I love reading your blog as everything is so gorgeous and amazing. It never fails to cheer me up and inspire me.

    I would paint fairies on cookies, as I did for my youngest daughters 4th birthday this past week. I used fondant icing then painted fairies on to it. It seemed a shame to eat them LOL!

    I have retweeted this giveaway too.

  4. It's my amazing mum and dad's 55th wedding anniversary celebration next month. I'd decorate a cake with a picture of them on top, and surround it with 13 cookies each painted to represent every one of their 13 grandchildren. Their family is their life and this would be the perfect way to represent that in yummy cake form!!

  40. I am so excited about the owl cookies. I LOVELOVELOVE owls!!!!! Congratulations on your anniversary. I hope that there are many more to come, especially since I just discovered your wonderful blog.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oops! I didn't follow entry directions, silly me who didn't read all the wya through.

    So, what I would paint on a cupcake, or rather have my fabulously talented husband paint for me, are little owls. I just love little owls. I think that when I have my sons first birthday party, which is not until July, I will give him an owl party. So cute!!!

    Congratulations again. I will totally put you under the places I visit section on my family blog; it's a private blog though. I am working on getting my party planning business blog going by the end of November.

  51. Hi! I was already a follower of your blog. I would paint a penguin, just because my son loves penguins and caterpillars. penguins are cute, and I can't really imagine painting a caterpillar in something someone's going to eat :)
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  52. That's a lovely giveaway! If I were to paint something on a cupcake, I think I'd do a reproduction of Mucha's famous Job ad. That is, if I could paint worth anything, which I sadly cannot. Congrats on the followers!

  54. Hi there

    Congrats!

    I would paint my baby niece's face on a cupcake(she has the most beautiful little cherubby round cheeks, just asking to be painted) - not sure I could do her justice, and also might be a bit wierd to eat the cake too!

  57. What a wonderful giveaway! I included a link to your giveaway on Twitter: http://twitter.com/prizedposs

    Right now, I would put a pumpkin or scarecrow on a cookie or cake for fall if I wanted something cute. Or a skull or scary ghost if I wanted something for my Halloween party (nothing cute allowed, only scary...don't worry - not TOO scary. Just fun scary.)

    Happy birthday to your great blog!

  58. Happy blogiversary! Coming out of the woodwork here today. :) I am following you in my Google Reader (Redhange. Great giveaway!

    Hmm, I would put on a cake, a pretty lace doily design. I've seen it where they use a paper doily as a template and then sprinkle cocoa powder on top. Not sure how it would be done with icing??
