In order to enter for this all you need to do is leave me a link in Mr Linky directly to the project you have entered in this fortnight's challenge (please make it direct to your post, not to the whole blog). One entry only for my candy please so as to make it fair for everyone !!

Update: please ensure that if you are entering for my blog candy that you have entered your card in this week's CCC Challenge and that it is a NEW project - any backlinks or projects not entered in this week's challenge are ineligible and I will delete the entries from Mr Linky so as to be fair for challenge entrants - thanks.
If you would like to leave me a comment about my card as well please feel free ;-) I will choose a winner randomly at the end of the challenge.
Don't forget to visit the rest of the DT's blogs to see their fab cards and find out what gorgeous candy they have got on offer.
