Spyder's Corner Followers: Birthday Blog Candy!!! A Guessing game!

Spyder's Corner Follower's Blog Candy!!
This post will stay at the top until March 12th
(or until I get bored with it!!! and then it'll drop down with an added link from whatever's on the top post!)

Please scroll down for new posts
(much more exciting than this!)
My blog has now be running for a year. Although I did have a few attempts at starting one before, but failed miserably!! With my small brain, I did find it quite hard working out what everything meant!! What to do with it, and where to put it once I'd got it!! But, finally I worked it out and if I can do it, anyone can!!!
Not only is it my blog's birthday but it's also my birthday next month (and it's me and him indoors wedding anniversary the month after that) and I've had well over 22,000 hits!! Which isn't too bad for an ordinary blog not doing anything much more than showing off a few hand made cards (and talking too much!).

So I thought it would be a good idea to do a bit of a
'thing' with the candy. The more followers who enter, the more there will be!! (so don't all rush at once!)

But first the hard part... this is a 'Followers' Candy...

1. I'd love you to 'post' my Candy on your blog and/or side bar with a link back here. That's the important one, and I will be checking!!
2. Then I'd love you to have a guess at how many flowers are in my Flower drum!! There's 15 compartments, filled with all kinds of flowers, different kinds of paper, silk, felt, self-sticking, glittery, even a few padded ones. There's very large flowers as well as very small ones!

I will count them all now, and put the number into a tiny envelope, so if I just happen to use a few in the next couple of weeks, the number that's in there NOW is the number I want you to guess!!!

3. You can have an extra guess if you find a post with no comments!! Comment that you've found it and then nip back here for your extra go! (I'll be adding a few more for you to find!!
So, whoever is first to comment here will be able to have two guesses!!)

I'll start the candy off with an assortment of Peel offs stickers.... the more people who guess the more the candy will grow!! And as it grows I will add more pictures...
In case of a tie, the candy will be shared! if no one gues
ses the correct amount, the followers closest to the right number (higher or lower) will be put into a hat (their guesses not them. ) given a good shake and will be chosen by Frog the Cat!! So???
"How Many Flowers are in the Drum???"
.Just add your names and guesses below!!

Thank you to everyone who had a guess!!
