Give Away

I just had this great idea, I don't have any followers on my blog and I am think the best way to get people to follow you is to be interesting. Right! well the other way is to give stuff away.  So I am giving a family Inkidoodle away when I have 50 followers on my blog. The Family Inkidoodle is for no more than 7 doodles, can't fit any more in the paper I use.   Your inkidoodle will have a Zentangle border so cool. I will place a sample of the border and doodle soon. Good Luck
