COMMENT ENTRIES FOR GIVEAWAY NOW OVER - SORRY!
Hello lovely Bloggers from around the world.
I am joining in the magic carpet ride and give away event for the first time this year.
Lisa Swifka from A whimsical Bohemian blog created the event in 2007, you can find out more or join in here
The original idea behind this giveaway event was to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. To interact, discover new and wonderful people, and in the process possibly win a prize or many prizes along the way.
Who am I?
Myself and my sidekick Spanky make things out of Shiny, Paper, Paint and Glue to entertain ourselves and then sometimes blog about it and participate in internet based crafting challenges.

Valentine Hottie VS Garden Party Tottie.
I was inspired by fabulous Sue Roddis's Art Doll feature in the latest issue of Craft Stamper magazine March 2010, page 50.
I usually make my paper dolls relatively realistic, but her ideas were very abstract, quirky and seriously fun ...so thought I would give it a try.
This has got to be the maddest thing I've made yet and I hope you like her.
Seeing as it is nearly Valentine's Day, I thought I would challenge Spanky to see who could make Julia (who has got to be the most famous face in rubber stamp land) THE OUTFIT in which she is most likely to pull (attract a hot date).
This paper doll has a front and a back.
We each got to design one side.
There was some serious Argy Bargy over the scissors I can tell you.
This is my design.
Garden Party Tottie.
She's 13 inches tall.
You can click on her to make her bigger.
Spanky says Julia will never pull a man in my outfit; maybe a pony called Dobbin in a Local Gymkhana, but a man? No.
And I thought wings were a sure fire winner. I mean even an A list celebrity can't compete with wings can they? Well anyway, I always was rubbish at dating.
This is Spanky's design on the reverse.
You can also click on her to make her bigger.
Now; I'm not a man, obviously, but I think all Julia will get out of Spanky's outfit is a rather irritating rash from all that scratchy lace, unless of course, the black lace is really a body tattoo and all she's wearing is a bra and posing pouch, but like I said I never was any good at dating.
So what do you think?
Who is Julia most likely to pull?
1. Maybe Nodding Neddy from Boy Band - Pony Power?
2. Nathan Kamp from probably every Romance Book Cover in the last 5 years?
(Not that I'm complaining mind you.)
3. Albert Steptoe from Steptoe and Son?
Maybe you think she's in with a chance with someone else this Valentine's Day?
If so, please leave your nomination with your comment, although any comment will enter you in the giveaway. (You can just tell me you love me if you want, yes, that would be you Mum.)
Thank you for visiting me and hope you don't suffer from too much sleep deprivation as you whip around the other 1015 (and still rising) bloggers before the 15th!
I am number #1040 on the magic carpet ride.
