The giveaway winner, a freebie, some atc's and a little blog break

For all of you that have been holding your breath all week long: it's time to tell you who won a sad girl (now there's a thing you don't say every day)! I used the random number generator and here's what it said:

Now I have to admit that this almost feels like a conflict of interest to me, because I happen to know the winner personally and even worse: he's the mayor of our island!  But I'll swear an oath to the death that he won fair and square and no bribery or blackmail took place, that's why I made a little screen print of the random number generator to prove it. ;-) Anyway, Yorick, the sad girl of your choice (Helen) is yours, or rather it's for the person you want to give it to. Hope she will like it. You'll have to wait for her for about ten days though. Why that is will be explained at the end of this post.

For those of you who didn't win I have a little consolation prize in the form of another freebie sheet. Here's the collage sheet I worked on this week for my handmade book al finished and colored in. If you click on the image it will take you to my flickr where you can download it in different sizes.

Hope this eases the pain just a little. ;-)

When the sad girls were done I had some paper left over and I didn't want to waste it, so I did something I hadn't done in ages: I made some atc's! Four of them. They are like the counterpart of the sad girls. They feature four girls too, but these girls are smiling wide. Hopeful isn't it? ;-)

Like the sad girls, these were drawn with a pitt pen and then colored in with colored pencils. If you want to trade for one of these girls please leave a comment or mail me (my addy is on my profile). I would like it if all four went to different people, so I won't do a 4/4 trade with these.

Now a little blog announcement: I will be away for the most part of about ten days. I have a long week off and a big part of that week I will spend house and dog sitting for my sister who lives in a beautiful part of the Netherlands known as the Achterhoek. I will have access to the internet and the mail and stuff like that, but I won't be doing any blog posts and will hardly be in my studio.

I will probably be back on this blog on June 27 or somewhere around that date. Until then I'm signing off wishing you a wonderfully creative weekend, a wonderfully creative week and another wonderfully creative weekend! Bye now!
