Mad Tea Party & Art Doll Giveaways......

Meet Amethyst
and her friend

Best friends.

Meet their magical carousel horses, Harmony, and Good Fortune.

They flew to Tuscany

 When they landed, Jenkins the orange cat with no tail, whom always gets in on photos shoots, told them of a Fanciful Twist's Mad Tea Party.

It became a tad dark by the time they found their way

so they parked the horses

and found the tea cup, and tea pot,
but no mad tea party was to be seen

so, they took a leisurely rest.....

Want the chance to win one of these dolls and their carousel horses?
$2.00 per ticket (thats $1 per doll!)
All money raised will be going to my local 'Rescue The Animal's (SPCA ~ Abilene)
10th July an online random number generator will decide the winners.

You can purchase tickets here ~ ETSY SHOP
or here ~ EBAY
or, you can go to the top right of my blog, and buy direct! 

Of course, the more you buy, the more chances you have of being a winner!!!
If you can't acess Etsy or Ebay, email me
Please help me raise much needed funds for animals.
Cheers everyone :O)

Azure, Amethyst, the horses and I would be really grateful if you would blog about my event :O)

And, now you have bought lots of tickets :O) go and visit all the other mad tea party goers!
