This week lovely Helen is the host for the drawing challenge and she chose the theme "my favourite object[s]."For those of you who know me you'd think the number one object is used tea bag paper and you'd be right to think that. It's top five anyway...
But I actually think that if I am anywhere, anytime, I need to have my mapping pen nib with its' holder, and a bottle of India ink. This nib is small and worth its' weight in gold to my mind.I am also completely smitten with air mail stationery. I've recently scored a block pad of it and am lately writing letters using it. I love that all you have to do is fold it over and presto...a letter! All you need is a stamp and you're off to the races. Speaking of races, this little imp has chosen this lovely bird for his mount. The fairies are holding a baby race (under two year olds) later today. Even in the pouring rain they meet. While this team is a long shot I am routing for them.
I wanted to show you these two objects today [the pen nib and stationery] and just decided to combine them to make an envelope for a giveaway. So this is unfinished because I got the idea only an hour ago. So if you want to win this giveaway you just have to leave a comment on this post and next Saturday I'll draw a name out of a hat. Meanwhile I'll be finishing the sketch. The winner will get to choose whether they want their own name put on the envelope and mailed from Canada, or for me to put an address of their choice and then mail it under separate cover so you can mail it from where you are.Here's a close up.
And a long shot. The dime is there to show how small the nib is.
Thanks for dropping by. Don't forget to pop in to Helen's blog which is linked above. Here you will see all of the participants in the drawing challenge for this week. It is a romp I promise you! Way fun!! *smiles* Norma
