Woohoo! Paint Party Friday and Giveaway!

Good morning you all. Welcome to another Paint Party Friday! And of course to my giveaway. I am celebrating 100 followers and nearly 50,000 visitors to my blog. So, what am I giving away? Here's the answer:
A set of three butterfly tags.

A set of bee tags:



















The set of 3 London Tags, and the set of 3 Paris tags that were on my blog yesterday are also in the giveaway.



This means 3 winners will each get one tag out of each of the sets, a total of four altogether.
And there are 2 mini-books to be had, too.

You can see more pictures of this one here

If you would like to be one of the winners of a set of four different tags, or a mini book, please leave a comment, and how I can contact you. If there are more comments than prizes, the names will be drawn.
If you are a follower of my blog, you get 2 chances. Everything easy peasy!
I will be drawing the names tomorrow morning, and will put the names of the winners on my blog. I will send the prizes out in mail art envelopes, and put a few surprises into each envelope,too. So, here's wishing you good luck!
Now to Paint Party Friday
I am showing a set of pictures, done with water colour pencils, which I made a couple of years ago. I was trying to capture the images of a strange dream I had with ducks, beetles, faces and flowers all floating about. It wasn't scary either, just strange!











Okay, this has been a long post again. So, good luck in the draw, enjoy PPF, and have a great day whatever you are up to. Thanks for visiting!
