Time for the Winners to be Grinners....


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 dismissed
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
congrats to 
Katie R

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 tki46582@bigpond.net.au

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
not ...xx

my last two post links are here in case you want to check them out ...

Congratulations to all the winners! Tracey's art is so wonderful, you're all gonna be thrilled to pieces.

And you found a great talent other than falling in the pool and being sucked in by Phantom. Mushu, prize snuffler. you could rent him out, although one may want to also include plastic gloves to deal with the dog drool. ;o)

Congratulations to the very lucky winners. I really think that Mushu deserves a few extra treats for being such an excellent selector. Maybe a special treat for Phantom and her ideas too, useless or not (he he).

Ah well ........ But nevertheless congratulations to all the winners. And thanks for the fun of anticipation, Tracey, imagining winning one of the paintings was almost as good as actually winning one. XX

Serena Lewis said...

I can't believe I missed this giveaway!! I've been quite snowed under with daily art/blog commitments not to mention medical procedures so haven't had a lot of time to get out and about to visit friends' blogs. DRAT!!! I guess I can't complain too much as I won one of your fabulous giveaways some time ago.

I love the way Phantom thinks outside of the box. lol

Mushu is too cute!! You've given me an idea for choosing my next giveaway....Cody will love the treats too! ;)

denthe said...

Haha, the way Mushu is looking when he's standing next to that fruit bowl is hilarious! Very unique way to draw winners!

Sandra Busby said...

Well, my plan was to look back and comment on everything that you have posted since I left - but you have posted an EPIC amount of drawings and paintings, so I decided to choose one to leave a comment on and of course it HAD to be this one! The painting arrived the day after my return and I was SO chuffed! It is gorgeous! And I love the way you drew the winners - I did chuckle when I read it :0)
