Its a Valentine's Day Give Away!!



What with Valentine's Day coming up and all, The Big Black Dog will be giving away this piece as a "sweet heart" of a gift to some lucky reader!

This pin measures 2 inches by 2 inches and is made up entirely of size 15 seed beads in two shades of blue.

The beads are all hand stitched to a backing (no glue here!). The embellishing flowers and leaves are also glass beads.

The back of the pin is a dark blue velour and it has a safety catch on the pin.

To be eligible to win, just leave a comment on this post no later than midnight MST on Wednesday, Feb 13.

The Big Black Dog will make her selection from the comments on Valentine's Day morning and the notification will be posted here.




This give away is part of a world wide web One World, One Heart event. To see a complete list of all of the participating artists, use this link and check them all out!

Beautiful heart!

sandee said...

This is a great idea! However, I just moved across country and have most of my stuff in storage. What I would like to do, is go into as many of the blogs as I can and sign in. If my name gets pulled by anyone as a winner, I will donate $100 to AIDS Foundation in memory of my brother. If my name gets selected more than once, I will up the ante an additional $10 every time it gets pulled (greedy I know, but one can dream!!!) If my name is not pulled by anyone, I will still make a $50 donation. This way, everyone is a winner.

I hope to get my name drawn at least once.
