Post #50 ~ it’s a give-away

I would love to think that you are as excited about this give-away as I am. I’ve been thinking about it everyday and wondering how exactly I would do it. I have so many viewers, after all, and I must be fair! 😉 I’m going to take the name of everyone who leaves a comment between now and Monday morning and then I will have a family member draw one name as the winner.

This soldered charm measures approximately 1″x2″ and was made using a bit of collage design. Both of the main pictures were taken from vintage postcards. The picture of the little girl was one of my Farm Chick purchases last weekend. She has a slightly mischievous look and I think she’s cute. The Eiffel Tower side has French words on it which mean “beautiful girl”. Just by leaving a comment you can be entered into the drawing.

I’ll leave you now with a picture I took this evening of my two favorite little country girls.

  4. I just went to your blog – wow, those are great! You creative type people…. I love the little girl one. I agree, she does have quiet the mischievous look on her face. So you took actual post cards to make these? My oldest son and I love to go to antique stores. Beautiful work Elaine. Take care and have fun! Oh, I meant to e-mail you yesterday – I helped Pastor Dan make a slide show for his mom for her 80th birthday and he had a picture of her with Ben. It was pretty special.
    Okay – have a good weekend!

  5. I didn’t realize you had a blog until now. Sorry I haven’t kept in touch better. I just found you address the other day and thought I should sit down and write. But then the kids needed something and here we are. I hope you have a great week.

  14. O.K…I check in daily to read what you’ve posted but rarely leave a comment. I guess that’s part of the fun with blogging…getting all the great comments! What’s wrong with me you ask? Well, nothing, I just now figured this one out (Yes…I’m a little blonde at times LOL) Congrats on your 50th blog…can’t wait till I get there! You are an amazing lady…I’m so glad God brought you into my life. You introduced me to a wonderful world of crafting and I just want to say thanks!
