Art Doll Giveaway!

Hello dear friends!  As this is my first blog post of 2014, I thought it might be nice to start off the year with a giveaway.  Not one of my usual pattern giveaways, but a REAL doll this time!
Please meet Collette.  She loves twirling about in her favourite pleated skirt and tangerine shoes!  She is part of a new collection of art dolls that I've been working on lately which incorporate a variety of different mediums - ink markers, coloured pencils and paints.  Collette measures just under 10 inches tall and her little arms and legs are pose-able.  Her outfit is not removable.
  As you can see above, I've traced the features onto each doll with a fine black marker, painted their hair and then coloured the eyes and lips in with coloured pencils.  More about them in a later post...
If you'd like to enter to win the lovely Collette, please leave your name and email addy in the comments box or, if you cannot enter here, please add your info to the link on my Facebook page.  The draw will be held on Sunday, Jan 19th and I will contact the winner for their shipping address via email. 

Best of luck to you all and my best wishes for a happy, crafty and fun 2014!!
