Drum Roll please
it is time to draw the 300 followers give away
so many entries were received we had to abandon the tea cup
and instead resorted to the fruit bowl... sans fruit of course
So question was how to draw it
Phantom was full of
ridiculous fantastic suggestions
some of which involved complicated algorithms,
and one half listened to suggestion in which the only words I caught
were air compressor and catchers mitt ...
so Phantom was duly ignored, the entries were dumped into the fruit bowl
which led to how do we get them out in a fun way
air compressors were again mentioned
and then Mushu wanted up on the table to see what we were discussing
and the brilliant solution emerged ...
Mushu looked suitably worried at our dastardly grins but all was forgotten when Phantom
stuck a bit of dog treat in the bowl
that snout dove in there at warp speed
and he happily pushed out two names trying to get at that little morsel of wonderful
Congratulations to Tammie Lee for winning the Bowls painting...
To Nordljus for winning the paint tubes ...
Thanks to another treat buried by my assistant
Cindy Adkins has won the ornamental cabbages ...
and Sandra Busby gets the Pears
though you will note that the papers were getting a touch gross
due to an unexpected amount of dog saliva
which made unfolding them quite the gruesome task....
Because there were so many entries
and because I was so thrilled and humbled by the response
I decided to also give away three A4 fine art prints of my header
and so one more bit of treat
and Mushu happily pushed out three names...
so the following three poeple have all won a the prints
I would like to thank you all for entering
I would like to thank Phantom for her
useless wonderful suggestions
and Mushu for being an adorable little snuffling drawing machine
though this led to a diva moment
and he then spent the next five minutes continuing to gaze at me hopeful for more snacks
tough luck buddy you made me get dog saliva fingers
still grossing out over that ...
I will be in contact with you all to get your details so I can get these off to you
or if you read this then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks again to everyone for entering and being part of the fun... xx
Phantom has just read this and demanded a retraction...
there was no catchers mitt mentioned
rather it was a cone around the dog's head
I would like to apologise to Phantom for any distress this may have caused
