Two notes of thanks and a giveaway

This has been a good week for me.

Elisabeth, from Beads for Busy Gals, hosted a giveaway a few days ago and very generously gave away two items from her etsy shop.  I was lucky enough to have my name drawn and Elizabeth is sending me this beautiful butterfly necklace:

Elizabeth, you rock!

Also, Erin, from Treasures Found, hosted a massive giveaway tied to her 2nd Annual Challenge of Color.  I was lucky enough to win a tutorial written by Marcie of La Bella Joya.  I've bought a few of Marcie's tutorials from her etsy shop and have had great success with her designs.  After a few hours of deliberation (no exaggeration .. Marcie's designs are just wonderful), I chose the Tumbling Tiles Bangle.  I cannot wait to start on this.

 Thank you Erin and Marcie!

I feel so fortunate to have won both of these and I want to give something away too.  I thought I would showcase another of Marcie's fabulous designs and give away a blue and gold version of Marcie's La Catedral Beadwoven Bangle.  I love this pattern.  It is so easy to work and the result is beautiful.

If you would like to enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post.  I will pick a name at random at 6:00 pm central time, Sunday, December 11 and announce the winner Monday, December 12.  Please be sure that your email address is either in the comment or in your profile.  

Be sure to check out both Elizabeth's blog and shop and Marcie's blog and shop. These ladies are some very talented artists.
