It's only a bloomin' Chipper Giveaway!

 A few weeks months ago I won a 'carry it forward' from Lisa at Bobo bun blog. She made me a wonderful crocheted cherry brooch and sent me some gorgeous little bits and pieces to play with and inspire me (see here).

The idea of a carry it forward, for anyone who doesn't know, is that if you win you receive something handmade from the blogger in question. In return you hold your own 'CIF' and carry on sharing the crafting/making love. It can be anything at all. Luckily there's no time restriction!!

One of the things that made my heart sing in Lisa's package was a battered old set of vintage Top Trump cars 
featuring modes of transport 
(including horses!)
I used some of the cards to make three blocks (naturally) which I've inked and sanded to give a real aged feel. They are very tactile and are part one of my carry it forward offering.
Thanks again Lisa x

In the past few weeks I also hit the 300 followers mark and 100,000 page views - how many reasons do you need to have one 
GREAT BIG carry it forward style blogging giveaway!? 

My first giveaway offering a was vintage Ladybird blocks, the second Alice in Wonderland,and for giveaway number 3 (part 2) it's...
Topsy and Tim!
 The blocks are made from pages of the book 
'Tospy and Tim go at the fairground'.
There are 7 blocks in total and they make up a couple of full page images and lots of smaller ones.
So, I have 2 prizes...a set of vintage transport blocks and a set of Topsy and Tim blocks. 
If neither of the sets of blocks are for you I hope you can think of someone who might like them for Christmas! 
To enter all you need to do is mention my giveaway on a post on your blog, or pop one of the photos on your sidebar and hopefully be prepared to hold a 'carry it forward' of your own sometime in the future (not obligatory!)
 I'll draw two names from a hat on 9th December - plenty of time to post in time for Christmas!
 Let me know if you're in!

    Sending 'Twinkles' ***** Love Maria x

  17. What a wonderful give away. Can you pop my name into the hat for the transport blocks please Fee, and I've popped a link into my sidebar :D

    Congrats on all the big numbers!

  18. Gorgeous giveaway Fee!! I have to say the transport blocks made my heart skip a beat!! And I have just made some little vintage motor magazine tags for my hb's birthday parcels...seems we are thinking alike?? I will put you on my sidebar now. (My younger daughter loved topsy and tim...she would adore those blocks too).
    Have a great week...keep cosy, it's a bit chilly around here!

  19. Good on you girlie. I feel so much better that you're working to a similar deadline as I have for stuff. As always gorgeous things on offer. I'd love a chance at the Topsy and Tim, but then if I did win it'd be a crafty boomerang coming right back at me. I'll pop link on my blog as soon as, but off to bed now as eyes tired and mind rambling, which is either tiredness, wine or age?

    By the by, congrats on new bubba in the family.

  28. Hi fee, just put your giveaway up on my blog. I decided to make my mum and dad and son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter a Christmas block as their Christmas card this year, not as easy as it looks, but with a bit of faffing and fluffing they will probably look passable.....might stick to normal cards next year hehe.
