One World One Heart

Photo

WHAT IS ONE WORLD ONE HEART?

  This event was created by a fellow blogger in 2007. The original idea behind this giveaway event was to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. The premise was to close the gap of the blog community and enable us to interact, discover new and wonderful people, and in the process possibly win a prize or many prizes along the way. 2007 had roughly 85-90 participants and many connections were made because of it......friendships that are still going strong. In 2009 there were 911 participants!

This year I thought I'd give it a whirl! Who doesn't love the chance to win a giveaway and meet new friends from around the globe?

So here's the scoop:  In order to enter this giveaway, you simply need to enter a comment on this blog post! Please leave me your email address so I know how to reach you if you should win. If you are a fellow blogger, please leave a link to your blog. I'd like to come visit as well!  Only one entry per person and your entry must be completed no later than Valentine's Day, February 14th. The winner will be announced February 15th!

What will you win, you ask! I decided in the spirit of Valentine's, to give away this little 8x8 heart painting. (This is admittedly a lousy pic--I will take a new one in a day or two when I have some natural light to take a better pic) I will also send along a pack of my cards featuring some of my artwork.



I covered the heart with molding paste and then pressed bubble wrap into the paste to create the texture on the heart. It gives it a very interesting look and was fun to create!

 

So there you go! Please leave your comment and keep your fingers crossed. If you are interested in visiting the blogs of others that are participating, simply click on the pic at the top of the post or on the sidebar. There will you find a list of participants (along with information about how to participate!).

And welcome to all new visitors! I hope that you make a habit of stopping by.
