* 400th Blog Post Giveaway * SIGN UP NOW CLOSED Winner will be announced on Saturday *

  • ****TO VIEW NEWER POSTS = SCROLL DOWN*****

WordPress has this neat new feature (new to me anyway) where you can “stick a post on the front page” at the top of your posts = perfect for a post such as this!  It sure is fun learning new tricks 🙂

  • As promised, here is a little something to celebrate my 400th blog post.

To win this metal Artists Trading Card (ATC) all you need to do is leave a comment on this post (click at the top of the post by the subject line) before midnight EST, 26 September 2008.  A winner will be announced on Saturday, 27 September.

Everyone is welcome to join in the giveaway.

Here you can see the front and back of this brass ATC, which measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches; ready to hang if you so desire.

Hope you will also enjoy this great song by John Mayer, from a very special movie “The Bucket List”. Just scroll down to the bottom of the post.

Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!

ALSO,  be sure and visit Kristin at Retro Cafe Art Gallery and leave a comment to be included in a drawing for some of her really wonderful digital collage sheets!  You won’t want to miss that! P.S.  Kristin’s drawing is now over

  1. Hi Patty, love your copper atc! I like the swan on the back very much too.
    The bucket list is a very special movie indeed, I saw it two weeks ago and I liked it a lot. Jack Nickolson and Morgan Freeman are two of my favorite actors.
