MY HUGE BLOG GIVEAWAY

If you're a regular reader of my blog, then you remember that in June I promised two give-aways in July because I just couldn't get it done in June! It was a crazy month!

So, as I've been thinking about what to offer, what two items, I decided that instead it would be a lot of fun to give away ONE REALLY COSTLY ITEM. . .

Meet the SPRING BANNER, retail cost $68.00 (includes presentation and postage).
It measures 36" across *not counting the ribbon for hanging*, each flag is 5" x 8" and, the flags spell out the word "SPRING".
You will love this banner!
It's light and sweet and each flag is a delightful piece of art in it's own right!

There are glittered pastel yellow and green eggs hanging by different trims between each flag. And the ribbon stringing the flags is pale pink satin.

Pay attention to the detail put into each flag including sewing, scalloped edges, etc.
I hope you like my choice.
I absolutely love this banner.

THE DEALINE FOR ENTERING
THE GIVE-AWAY IS
SUNDAY, 10 p.m. CST, AUGUST 2nd.
All I ask that you do to be eligible for this drawing is
1.) leave a comment and be entered ONCE.
2.) if you're not already following my blog, I would love
for you to - if you sign up to follow, let me know that
(and let me know if you're already a follower) and
I'll enter you in the drawing TWICE.
3.) And, last but certainly not least, if you post on your
blog sending your readers over here to enter, let me know
that and I'll enter you THREE times.
You must leave me your blog address so I can visit it.

Gosh, this is so exciting for me! I've never given away anything worth so much nor do I remember ever asking for more than a comment in a give-away (I'm relying on my memory - ouch).

A special shout out to my loyal readers that I can always count on to keep up with me by regularly reading my blog. I think y'all are absolutely the best!

And, a shout out to my lurkers...I know you're reading, just not commenting, because I am able to keep up with my numbers. Y'all are shy, but really important to me!
Today I ask you to consider stepping up and start leaving a comment when you read my blog - it makes me feel very popular. heehee


XOXO, Jan

Big toothy smiles,

Carol Stocker said...

Gee Jan....you sure have a lot of followers...guess they don't know that you are packing up and moving to Scotland to get away from the Twitter stalker(kidding!). I was hoping with that comment that people would stop signing up and that it would increase my chances of winning your stunning SPRING banner. You amaze me with your generosity and spectacular talent! Thanks for the opportunity to win Pinkie! Hugs, Carol

Lynn Richards said...

Jan...thanks for checking out my Blog...hope you had fun stumbling around in it. I'm still trying to figure out the whole Blog thing...so hopefuly someday someone will take pity on me and tell me how to do some things.

On to YOU!!! You are so generous in offering so a lovely Spring piece for a Giveway. It is so cheery and someone will be a lucky lucky ducky.

Thought I'd let you know that I signed up to follow your Blog...hope you'll do the same with mine! ; )

As always, you are cracking me up. I love that banner (sign me up) and I also enjoyed the post about your studio. You are right about me and my stuff. I'm glad that I can follow you now. Thanks for adding that feature! Saw that you haven't been on Twitter anymore. I just don't get it, but went and checked it out. I signed up a long time ago, but never got caught up in it. Don't like those crazy people either, hahaha. Hope you're having a great weekend! hugz, Rhonda...
