Giveaway Day!

I made something new and decided that I would like to share it with one of you.  It's a brooch that is 2" wide and about 2" tall.  The fringe hangs 2 1/2" below the main circle part.  I used felt to bead on, a beautiful color of silver-lined transparent brown bugles surrounded by a great Czech mix called Tortoise.  The main cab is wood, and the fringe is various shapes and sizes of glass and metallite beads.  It was a lot of fun to put together.  I'm not sure how many people out there are into pins, but I do think this one is pretty (if I do say so myself :) and the photo doesn't show the colors in the tortoise mix very well.  It would look great on a jacket or a blouse...keep it for yourself or gift it to someone special.



SO....Here's what you do!

You can have up to 3 chances to win!  (you don't have to do all 3 if you don't want to...but you do need to leave a comment.)

1) Leave a comment to this post
2) Be or become a follower
3) Post a link to my giveaway on your blog  (see note below under rule change)

So, in your comment tell me if you are now or are becoming a follower and let me know if you are linking to your blog.  I'll also need an email address to contact you.  Either leave one in your comment, or email me at indigosbeads@live.com with your contact info.

That's it!  Easy peasy lemon squeezy!  Oh...the deadline for commenting is midnight EST on Wednesday 5/12.

RULE CHANGE
lol.  Mary-Frances brought up kind of a funny point.  If she posts a link she'll be potentially adding to the competition.  hehe  I didn't think of it that way.  Well, if you post a link I'll put your name in TWO extra times.  Does that make it a little better?  lol.
