One World One Heart International Blog Give Away 2010



Welcome to my blog! I'm so happy to meet you. This is my first time participating in this global blog event. 


I am offering two people one of my handmade cards, seen below. They are blank inside and can be used for any occasion. 



 

Both cards are hand stamped with permanent ink over an original design using a variety of colors of alcohol inks. I used layers of card stock which were then adhered to a quality Strathmore card, with a matching envelope. Both cards measure 5" x 7" and are sealed in plastic.

Two names will be drawn on Feb. 15, 2010.

To Enter
All you have to do is leave a comment below, along with your email address, so I can contact you if you win. If I have no way of reaching you, I will have to choose someone else.


Who Can Enter
This promotion is for Bloggers Only, so you must have an active blog to enter. 




Lisa from Whimsical Bohemian created this event in 2007. The original idea behind this giveaway event was to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. It closes the gap of the blog community and enables us to interact, discover new and wonderful people, and in the process possibly win a prize or many prizes along the way. 2007 had roughly 85-90 participants and many connections were made because of it. Many of those friendships are still going strong.

In 2008, that number about tripled. In 2009 there were 911 participants. To say Lisa was amazed is an understatement. 28 countries were represented in the 2009 event as well.


This is more than wanting to win something, that is only the means. In the end it's about finding kindred spirits. Someone who may be fairly new to blogging, not sure how to navigate, find others and have others find them. Some are long time bloggers and in some cases well known in the blogging community. Whatever the case it brings all of them together. 


This is an INTERNATIONAL event that has and had participants from the US, Canada, France, Sweden, Germany, Finland, Malaysia, Brazil, The Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, Ireland, England,Wales, Slovenia and more. It transcends geographical location, socio economics, political affiliation and religious beliefs. It's a coming together like the giant community we are on this planet. 

If only it took a simple giveaway to create PEACE everywhere, in the mean time here we give from our hearts. We are not solving the worlds problems nor are we curing anything nor are we changing the world. We are merely generating a closer community between humans through blogging. Lisa says, "What more could I ask for, my little idea has surpassed my wildest dreams of what it could become."

Thank you for participating! 
Happy Blog Hopping! 
Don't forget to leave a comment to win my cards!

Beautiful cards and in full support of your ethos 'Help those most in need', if i am lucky enough to win, I'd like the cards to be donated to Made4aid which is a blog that sells donated handcrafts from other bloggers and to other bloggers to raise money for refugees in Darfur. But right now, any raised money will go to Haiti, who are in extreme need.

  58. Nina...I have to say, the card with the eyes particularly made me gasp. I haven't cried in two full years. I came really close...that choked up, painful feeling we get in our throats when the cry tries to surface--I feel it. I don't know why, and I'm sure it's something deep inside that I'm harboring; preventing the sob.

    Even if I don't win. I wanted you to know this.
