December 2013 Giveaway!

How about something a little different for my 30th giveaway? This time it is a set of note cards created from a drawing I completed earlier this year.

I chose to draw a Barred Owl in colored-pencil, knowing full well I'd want to keep it if it turned out. Before I framed the original to hang on my office wall, I took a scan of it and created these note cards as a way of sharing it. The winner of the giveaway will receive 5 folded note cards and envelopes - they're not fancy, but they're original (well, they're at least copied from an original). :)

If you'd like to enter this giveaway, you must:

a) Be a public follower of this blog (use the 'Join This Site' button on the sidebar to sign up if you haven't already done so
and
b) Leave a comment on this post saying you'd like to be entered, would like to win these note cards, etc.

I'll pull the name of the winner from a hat in a couple of weeks. Thanks, everyone!

This giveaway opportunity is now closed.

You are so talented. Yup, sign me up for the drawing. I can see why you kept the original. I am sure I asked this of you before, but I don't remember the answer - did you go to school for art? Obviously, you love it.

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I was so busy with family I had NO time for the internet at all. I don't like being that busy, but it was a nice few days.
