A very fun GIVEAWAY!!

I love to color!!

I had forgotten how relaxing coloring could be.

My latest endevor has lead to a stash of this....

and this is what I colored....
(click on photo for closer look! I had way too much fun!!)









Here's where I began....




This fabric marker was one that I had on hand.  It was glittery and didn't cover very well.  As you can see I did get the best results from it and this lead me to purchasing more markers for testing purposes.  Well, that's what I told the hubs every time he saw another JoAnn's purchase in my hands.
 

I did the heat setting with regular crayons, but the colors weren't as bright as I wanted them to be.  I have since washed the sample, well not really washed, it was in the washer with the rest of my samples and the washable marker started to bleed so I pulled it out of the washer quickly!  Heat setting the crayons will work, but not as colorful.
 

Still with me??  Want a couple?  

Here's the giveaway...

I'm going to give 4 placemats away.

2 placemats to 2 different people, and I am offering 
international shipping on this one.

Here's what you've got to do....

1) Tell me which 2 placemats you would like to have.  You can find them all under the tab "My Shoppe - Placemats" located at the top of my blog.

2) Follow me or let me know you follow me for a second entry.

3) Post it on your blog or facebook with a link back to this post, come back and let me know that you did.

 Ends at midnight on August 23th.

I will announce the winners on August 24th, randomly selected by someone other than me. 

Coloring placemats isn't all that I've been up too!!  Since I haven't done a giveaway in a loooong time, I'm going to have another fun giveaway very, very soon and trust me this one you won't want to miss.  It's one that I did when I first started machine quilting and has to do with pattern testing too!

Okay, let the fun begin!!

thanks for checking on me,
hugs,

joanne

Those are adorable! It is hard to choose, but my grands would probably best love sea turtles and scoot!

How very cute these are. I really like the turtles and under the sea. These would make great, and easy, Christmas gifts for two of my "great grandchildren."

Oh my word, you have been busy. Those are lots of fun. You know my boys would like any vehicle on a placemat.

I can't believe how vibrant those are!

I just have to tell you that that is one of the most clever things I have seen in a long time. All of those placemats are just awesome. What a unique idea.

I love all of them....I might have to go back and look again, I was just in awe of it all.

I like the trains....and puzzles

Barb said...

No wait...the flowers, bird houses....just adorable.

Barb said...

I did do a post because I really really think this is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo clever!!

Marjorie Nath said...

Love them! I could see one for a girl with dressmaker form ans different outfits to color for her. I'd like a cracking egg through full grown dragon for myself. Your designs just made my imagination kick in. I would try Motorcycles and Under the Sea.
