GIVE AWAY!!!! With a catch


I wanted to find a way to say thank you to everyone who has sent my brother a card or a note wishing him well and for all the prayers that everyone has been saying.

So I decided to do my first give away. But there is a catch! In order to enter you must send my brother a card or note wishing him will. As he receives them I will add your name to the list for the drawing. Also, if you put a link on your blog to my give away or if you post a prayer your name will also get an entry. There is no limit as to how many prayers or cards you send.
I am going to hold this give away open until May 31st so people from far away will have a chance to get cards mailed in. Please email me for the address to mail them to.
The give away is for a beautiful white frame with roses on top. It's very romantic cottage looking. There is also a box of pretty note cards and envelopes, a lovely white basket with roses on it and your very own kit to make a vintage button picture frame. You can go to Cindy's Romantic Homes to see the one she made. Now you can make your own. The frame is there and you will also get a baggie of vintage buttons. All you need to do is add the white paint to the frame and then glue the buttons on.
So come on, get those cards and notes mailed. I'm really excited about this first give away and hope you will be too.
Hugs,
Joanne

Hi Joanne! You have been busy! I love all the things you have shared. The blue plates are a favorite of mine! All the other treasure are nice, too! That's a lot of buttons you got....you won them on Ebay? I haven't ever done EBay. I gave a card to my hubby to mail today for your brother. Hopefully he will get it soon.
Thanks for your words about the shower. It was very special but sad...Donna was the kind of mom who would have enjoyed all the wedding preparations and loved every minute. Many women are supportive of Melissa so she is doing well.

I love the jar and vase...I've not got any white vintage buttons but I sure am going to try to get some...your jar looks fabulous with the buttons....

Hi! I just found your blog through Edie Marie's Attic. What a fun surprise to find such a lovely giveaway. What a wonderful idea to help lift your brother in prayer. My family also experienced a stroke so I know how devastating it can be. Please know that your brother and your family are in my prayers. Patricia :o)

Hello Joanne. I just emailed you. I don't think I'll have enough time to send a note to Gene before your giveaway ends, but that's okay. If you'll let me enter, that's great too! Blessings & prayers for Gene.
