My entry for the Red Barn Quilt Co. Giveaway

Hailey's Birthday Suprise

The whole duck theme was inspired by my sweet little next door neighbor, Miss Hailey Pie. She loves ducks. She had her first birthday this weekend and this is what I made for her. I am a little embarrassed about this one, it's not my normal illustration style. It's a little Mary Engelbreitish, I don't mean to do this. Sometimes my illustrations just turn out like this. If I had done a different background, it wouldn't look so much like her style. Besides Mary kicks some serious art butt, I have a long way to go before I was even half as good. I am in no means trying to copy her style. I guess Hailey likes it. This makes me so happy.

And the Winner is................

The winner is......cpullum. Please email me your address and blog link so I can send you little "Flower". 

Thanks to all of you who took the time to leave such wonderful and kind comments about my artwork. Thanks also to the bloggers who posted about the giveaway. I hope that you will feel free to visit Artfulife again very soon. I had so much fun doing this little giveaway. It is an honor to meet other bloggers who are moms, grandmas, and creative women all full of so much passion for their families and the creative life they are living. I applaud all of you. Can't wait to do another giveaway very soon. 

(Sorry for the jumpy video!)


Today is the day that I pick a name out of a hat and send "Flower" off to her new home. If you are visiting for the first time and would like to try and win the giveaway, there are still a few hours to post a comment. I will be drawing a name this afternoon at 4pm. Today is Sloan's first day of school, and I promised her she could draw the name. I will announce the winner a few minutes after that. Have a fun day everyone!
