My First Giveaway!!

As a thank you to anyone who has ever stopped in and taken a look at my blog and especially to those who have bothered to leave a comment and even more especially to those kind souls who have become my followers, I would like to host my first giveaway.   I have been rather overwhelmed by all the friendly people I have met since starting my blog this year, and the kind, sympathetic or hilarious words that have been left in comments and emails.
Since I received lots of curious questions about the alcohol inks, I thought they would be a good thing to giveaway so someone can try them out themselves.  This is the Nature Walk pack with Wild Plum, Butterscotch and Stream the colors included.  I'm also giving a beaded bead I made in spring like colors.  It's about the size of a fifty cent piece.  Then I tossed in a few lacy bits for good measure.  Are there supposed to be rules?  I'm not much into rules but I guess I need something here.  How about anyone who leaves a comment on this post will be put into the drawing for this giveaway.  That's it. Leave a comment.  I will draw a name on April 9th.  And thanks again for all who have extended the hand of friendship through this blog.

Oh Jan everyone is going to want this giveaway. I told you I had tried the print from a printer but I used different ink now and can't do it. I did not know you could get alcohol inks. This is great. Keeping all digits crossed. Blessings

Oh Jan if you are an art slut, what am I? My house is a mess right now but it is a colorful mess for I am about to set up another easel. Have a great day Jan.
