~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It's freezing outside (-22 degrees here in MN), the economy is terrible, and cabin fever has already set in!
But, I'm so happy to be creating and blogging again, that I decided to do a little giveaway.
The Valentines pictured below will be given to two different winners. They were created using layers of beautiful papers, vintage images, feathers, crystals and glitter. Just leave a comment on this post to sign up. I'll draw the winners names on Janurary 31st!
(If you have a preference of which one you'd like, should you win, you can let me know when you comment.) I have a variety of Valentines for sale on my selling blog: Vintage Whimsy

Girlfriend,
I come to your via Bonnie Jones' site. You were on her list and I wandered over and have been stopping by periodically ever since. Cabin fever must be working for you...all 3 cards are as cute as can be. The little man strutting his stuff just makes me smile. Your work always delights (I was looking back on your items yesterday when I got the ebay notice - the clown V-day card w/heart on pocket, the Halloween kitty - well, too many to brag on -I like it all!) I know you must know this, but you are one talented lady and I am glad I finally got the chance to 'tell' you! Sign me up, Nancy (or is it Nanook of the North by now...how many weeks frozen?) I'd be honored to hold one in my hand. Martha

Firecracker said...

Hi. I have been a wanderer of your sight for nearly a year now and have always been wanting to'stop' in and tell you what a talent you have. I started coming because of your sculptures, but started noticing your cards and have become a fan of yours. I enjoyed your Christmas photos and was sorry to hear you had been ill. I do have to say cabin fever agrees with you judging from your 3 give aways - the little man who is strutting his stuff tugs at my heart (My son had curls like that until he was 2 and people started calling him a pretty girl! He's 14 and doesn't like that story.) Thank you for letting me visit, and now for a chance to win. Take care Ms Nancy (or is it Nanook of the north - how long has it been snowing/freezing now for 2 weeks?!)
:) Martha (Firecracker)

Did I read "not to be confused with the giveaway below" in the above post!?! I think I read right! These are all adorable! I love the middle one the most and the top one, too! I think I would love any of them if I won. But mostly the middle one, not the top one! Oh, just let me know if I am lucky to win and I will decide then, if I'm lucky!!! LOL!;)
