A Milestone and Christmas Celebration GIVEAWAY


It's getting that time of year when we all start 
to think about Christmas and gift giving
and as I have reached yet another
milestone with my
 700 followers
thought I would like to give you an opportunity
to receive a gift from me in the form of
this collage
"In the arms of love"



based on this beautiful artwork of 
Bernardino Luini
"Madonna and Sleeping Child".




I am ever so grateful to you for your support and friendship
and for leaving such kind and encouraging comments.
My life has become so enriched in so many
different ways.


 

The collage is 18x12 inches and consists of




many layers of hand and machine stitched new
and vintage laces and doilies,





vintage upholstery cloth, burlap, buttons and braids.

I am giving away two gifts - the first one is the large collage
and the second gift is a smaller collage below called
"I found wings".




Now how to enter:
If you are a follower already or wish to become one
you can enter once here
and
if you would like to mention it or place the Giveaway
on your sidebar then
let me know in your entry here on this post
and
I will draw a second winner for this smaller collage.






The draw will take place on:
Wed. 5th December


 I'm wishing everyone the very best of luck
and to reiterate

"Thank you so very much"
for your continued love and 
support of my creative journey with you here!
And
a very special welcome to all new followers too!

......Love minus zero,
Suzy xxx

Just an FYI - you are also in my "blog list" which I call "Inspiration." and, your lacebook collaborative is linked in my sidebar, too. Would love to have you add me to your listing if you are so inclined. I'm working on a medieval tag for you (my first tag). LOL - Love and hugs. Karen

lynne said...

Dear Suzy
Congratulations on reaching 700 Followers (and more!).
Sometimes when we view art we are rendered speechless and also transported to a quiet, peaceful spot where it appears that time stands still. This happens because we connect with what we are viewing, when it touches our heart.
Exquisite creations filled with meaning and soul. I have an Oxford Impressions stamp which I haven't used for the longest of time but you have inspired me to use that stamp depicting Madonna and Child.
I am a Follower and it is a privilege to be so and to possess one of your pieces of art already.
Thank you Suzy for everything including a chance to win your Giveaway.
Wishes
Lynne
