Literally hundreds of tickets have been sold. Honestly, mark and I thought we owuld only sell up to 100 - to say we are delighted is not far fromt he truth. Some buyers are trying your luck with one ticket and one lady bought a staggering 20!. I have printed out all the names and dates of tickets and will put them in a bloody large box so that we can pick just one winner. It only takes one ticket to win so good luck to all of you.
So since the last announcement........

Now the vote debate the other day was like a real taboo subj but my next exhibit has somewhat major controversial issues. I did a swap last week with Jackie who bought her Tilda stamp at a craft fair during the height of a craft hypertension purchase deficit disorder. She made it quite public that it was a mistake but I was tempted to swap it out of her hands for a play-it-safe page kit put together out of my own stash. The beloved Tilda stamp (or Moomin as Jackie so likes to call it). These wee stamps kind of freaked me out because of their curious, expressionless faces. So as I had craft club tonight, I thought Id try playing with one. The girls loved her but did worry about having no smile. Note the word smile and not mouth. I love kids! I did enjoy colouring her in with my watercolour pens and fiddling with the harlequin background not to mention the fab papers from K&Co. Infact, I made another one whilst the kids had thier break during the lesson. Ssssshhhhhh!
So after I had made the card, photographed it and cropped it - I thought I'd try drawing expressions on her face in photoshop. Belle loved her with a mouth and she said she would draw one on her Tilda's a little later.
I know the hype over these Tilda's is somewhat 50/50 in the likability stakes (oooh watch me get smacked for this (as is the fashion these days - yawn)) but weirdly enough, there is something frightfully lovable about that little moomin.
E-bay here I come ;)
And finally - a layout made during extra time tonight (Liverpool match tonight). I couldnt look, I just couldnt. And Benitez says "Torres had a hamstring injury" - which I think is total cacka poo pants. That Rafa guy has togo, he has made a number of crappo decisions this season. And good riddance when he does. Pooey.
