Giveaway: We're A Happy Family

Giveaway: We're A Happy Family | Doodlers Anonymous

As my guest blogging here comes to the end of its happy cycle, I cannot believe how fast this month went by and how much fun it’s been posting for you DA readers. I feel lucky and glad to have been so warmly welcomed by the DA family and as a token of my gratitude, as Papa (above) suggested to me, a giveaway would be most suiting to celebrate the good times I’ve had 'round here and to thank you all for the love, generous feedback and endless bubbles of inspiration.

So speaking of families, a while back I was delighted to be invited by the super talented Estibaliz Hernandez to design a set of four cards along with another seven international artists to form the ‘We are a happy family’ children’s card game. It was such a great project to be involved in, I enjoyed the process so much and the end result is truly fabulous.

The card game was published in Spain in April and the first edition has sold out, with all proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders charity. The wonderful other artists included are Sarajo Frieden, Lotte Andkilde, Lady Desidia, Estibaliz Hernandez, Alexandra Hedberg, Aris Moore, Kimberly Laurenti and box layout by Jorge Fernandez. And guess what? We have put aside two packs exclusively to give away to a couple of lucky DA readers!

To enter this giveaway all you have to do is leave your comment on this post telling us what you enjoyed most during my posting here and your name will go in my hat! Winners will be announced on 7th July. Last but not least, I’d like to take this opportunity to, again, thank you so much for making my little adventure here such a brilliant one! Pssst: I have a brand new website now and am welcoming your feedback too. Hope you enjoy browsing through it and do stay in touch. Lots of love and happy doodling x
