****update....magic number chosen and this post is now officially closed to comments.
Today is the day!!
All over the world
Artisans will post and share
something put together
especially for a give away
no strings attached
just a joining of 'hands' if you will
a little sharing of love
This fabulous idea came from fellow blogger, Lisa Swifka,
in 2007 to bring bloggers all over the world together
who might not have met otherwise.
AND MY HOW IT HAS GROWN!!
In 2009 the number was over 900!!!!
and read all about it
I am number 232
I have created a one of a kind ATC
This three dimensional piece is a new design of mine
not only is it created in layers to give you 3D
it has an easel back to allow for display.
So often I have stayed away from creating or collecting
ATC's because I don't want to put them in a book or box
and not look at them
Here you see I have created two exact backs for the ATC
(yes, this is only ONE ATC)
hinged with vintage ribbon
to allow you to stand it up and enjoy on a shelf
(this is the finished back)
Then I added this sentiment on the back about life,
(seemed fitting - faerie speaking, of course.)
and dated and signed.
As we soon enter the month of 'hearts'
and since this is a
One Heart One World event
I chose the red-heart theme
(along with Marie Antoinette)
Leave a comment here and the winner will be
chosen by number at random.org
the day after Valentine's Day
The name attached to the random number will receive
this OOAK ATC boxed up as a gift
in case you would like to give it away
along with a collection of vintage ribbons to use
on your own art.
There will be a few other little surprises added to
make this a delightful surprise to open
And remember, your name
and blog name/address so I can find the winner.
