Blog Giveaway!

I am approaching my 400th post, which just totally amazes me! When I started this blog almost 3 years ago, I wasn't even sure whether I would enjoy blogging. While I don't post every day, I have enjoyed it tremendously. And I've met a lot of people through my blog that I would never have met otherwise. My readership has grown lately and I so appreciate the comments that my readers make, so in order to say thank you, I've decided to give away some of the many postcards and ATC's I've been making. I have 15 that I want to give away, so I'll be posting a picture of one each day through September 18th. I'll draw names and post the winners on my blog on September 22nd from the comments left on those posts.

Here is my first giveaway:



To create the background, I used soy silk and textile medium and followed this tutorial at Joggles. After I finished the background, I fused it to a batik with similar coloration and then fused that to a stiff interfacing (like Timtex). I put Razzle Dazzle thread in my bobbin and did bobbin work all over the piece, then cut it up into postcard sized pieces. I added Bonash and foil, then used my embellisher to add the silk flower with balled up yellow yarn in the center.

So leave me a comment if you're interested in winning this.

Congratulations on your 400th post Cheryl ... having recently started my own blog I can't even imagine getting to 400 yet. Love your work on this exquisite little piece, the colors are soothing and remind me of a Monet ... I want to jump into this one and swim around a bit.
