Birthday Giveaway!

It is a beautiful spring day out and a perfect day for a birthday!  Not mine!!!  My Mom is having a birthday today but I won't tell her age.  Lets just say she isn't quite a spring chicken anymore.  Love ya Mom!

So in honor of my Mom's birthday, I thought a giveaway was in order.  I think these 30's fabrics would be perfect for a giveaway honoring a woman that might, I said might, have been born during that time.  So here is what you will win if you name is randomly drawn from all those that entered and followed the rules.

Aren't these cute!  The randomly drawn winner will win these 2-1/2 yard cuts of 30's reproduction
fabrics.  But you have to follow the rules.

So here are the rules:

1.  Leave a comment wishing Mom a Happy Birthday.  Hopefully you will leave more of a comment than that.  Make sure you also leave an email address or some way for me to contact you if you win.

2.  You must leave your comment by April 20th @ 4 pm my time.  I can't tell you whether that is Eastern or Central time.  We started changing our time twice a year a few years ago.  Before that we didn't have to bother with it. 

3.  Anyone can enter!  Would love to  hear from someone in China!  So if you are in China leave me a comment telling me you are.  I don't think I have ever gotten a comment from China.

If you would like to become a follower, I would love to have you.  But there are no extra entries for following!

I guess that is about it!  Hope to hear from you soon!

Happy Birthday, Rhonda's mom! I hope you have a wonderful birthday full of special memories and some fun.

Deanna said...

Birthday's get better as you get more of them--the fabric is proof. It isn't OLD, it is POPULAR, all over again.

You can't tell if a woman is beautiful until she is at least 50. Before that it is all unearned. 50 is when the beautiful (or not so beautiful) truth comes out.

Best wishes!

A very special happy birthday to Rhonda's Mom. May you have amny more and celebrate them all in good health and happiness.

I would love to say Happy Birthday from China...but I am from Alabama and if you click over to my blog it would tell you so.....
So Happy Birthday from Alabama. Alabama does have something in common with China ---they both end with an "a"
