Blog Anni Giveaway...Update!!!!!! See Below

Well in a couple of weeks I will have been in blogland for a year, so a little giveaway (Enid blyton themed is in order)
I have inked a little replica of a vintage Enid Blyton Illustration from the Faraway Tree, and that with some other little bits will be the prize...if you want to enter please leave me a message by Sat 1st Aug and Silkie will draw a winner xx

Nighty Night xx

PS its a little under A4 size xx

P.P.S Just wanted to say that the picture isnt a print...Its a real (By me!) hand drawn larger version of a vintage illustration....on watercolour paper...incase I can tempt any more of you to enter the raffle!! (I cannot take the credit though for the picture....I just borrowed it...don't tell!)

I have also realised that in my haste I can't string sentances together - my previous Yoda quote made no sence at all!!!

All I will say is that its best to have a go at something as you will never know what can happen...

Right ...enough Yoda...I'm off to eat my Dinner!!

Hi Sam,

I hope I am not too late! I loved Enid Blyton as a child and would read anything of hers that I could get my hands on! I particularly loved the Faraway Tree series and the Wishing Chair series. You are so clever with all your illustrations! I really can't draw, even for peanuts!
