"For it is in giving that we receive."

-St. Francis of Assisi-
It seems like a lot of things slip by me these days as I am trying to juggle too much and my 400th post has come and gone, I am now posting my 414th. So, since February has made a shockingly quick appearance and it is my 414th post and Valentine's Day is on February 14th I thought I'd just roll it all together into one big celebration and have a give away.

I had one pretty pink altered slipper art kit left and thought it would make a perfect prize!

Carmen's Cameo Slipper
This one~of~a~kind hot pink, black, and white altered shoe belongs to Carmen, a Can Can dancer, and has high kickin' contrast.This kit is filled with this tri~colored pallet of items to create three art tags.This hot pink satin dyed shoe had been refurbished from the inside out from its black and white papered inside and flocked sole, to its smart gimp trim to its paper ruffled toe and vintage cameo, to its stylish lace heel bow.ART KIT CONTAINS:

A VINTAGE PHOTO of Carmen, wrapped in THREE YARDS OF TRIM, 1 yard of tone on tone floral printed satin ribbon, 1 yard of vintage black hem lace, and 1 yard of mini black gimp. RHINESTONE HAIR PIN and PAPER ROSE.THREE HAND DYED STAMPED TAGS, ready for embellishing.
THREE BLACK AND WHITE FLOCKED PAPER ROSETTES with mirrored centers, FAUX PEARL BEADS (6), RASPBERRY TEAR DROP BEADS (6).THREE YARDS OF VINTAGE PATTERNED CREPE PAPER, 1 yard of each pattern shown below.Carmen is a tad eccentric and she keeps company with a PET CROW, Cameo, who revels in all her shiny stuff and will accompany the kit.
To sign up for the give away simply leave a comment on this post. A winner will be drawn and announced on Wednesday, February 10, 2010. Comments will be closed on Tuesday, February 9, 2010 at 10 PM. Anyone is welcome to enter, you do not need to have a blog or be a follower, international friends are welcome to sign up too.

Thank you all who give of your time to visit here and for all I receive for our lives having touched. Each and every one of you bless me and brighten my days, for that I deeply thank you.

Now that I have officially emptied my shoppe of its very last item I'd better get busy!
Have a wonderful day!

Miss Sandy

I visit your cottage site every day, and I have been wanting to leave a comment and tell you how much I learn from it. You are so free with your knowledge and pictures of fun things to make. I just made some valentines from your tutorial, and they are so cute. To have something from you personally would be such a treasure.
