Tuesday, July 6, 2010


Hello all my bloggie friends!! Yes, it is Giveaway time here at Shabby Cats and Roses! And since a lot of shops are having Christmas in July (including my Etsy shop), I thought I would create this sweet stocking for you!

It features this adorable Francis Brundage Image of a charming dark-haired girl holding onto a bouquet of gorgeous pink roses. This Image is known as "Sweeter than the Rose".

The stocking features two different pink rose prints, rose lace trim with vintage pink ribbon running thru, a snippet from a vintage lace doily, and a sweet bow at the side of another lovely vintage pink ribbon.

Now here are the rules for entering this giveaway: The winner will be chosen from one of the comments that are left here ON THIS POST! If you are a follower of my blog...leave a comment telling me so. If you sign up as a new follower; leave a comment telling me so. If you do a post about this giveaway on your blog; leave a comment telling me (I will be checking ladies). If you put my Giveaway button (which you will find on my sidebar), onto your sidebar with a LINK BACK TO THIS POST; leave a comment about it, (again, I will be checking). See, not too hard...actually it will be more simpler for me, and much quicker for me to choose the winner! IF YOU DON'T COMMENT, THEN YOU DON'T GET ENTERED. So come on ladies, start leaving me your comments :)

The giveaway starts NOW, and will end on July 30th, which is the date that my hubby and I will be celebrating our 22nd Anniversary :) So start leaving those comments ladies, lol :)

Hi Brenda, I love the stocking you have created with one of my favorite graphics. I like to create with this one too. What a wonderful giveaway. You are so talented and anyone is going to be thrilled to receive this. I know I would.
Please enter me and I am already a happy follower.

Have a great evening. So glad to see you in ECS too.

Hugs, Celestina Marie

A Hopeful Heart said...

Ooh, Brenda, I LOVE every single thing you make. You are so talented and creative and make SUCH gorgeous items.

I am already a follower...and love being one, 'cause I don't want to miss any of your lovely posts.

I hope you don't have comment problems with Blogger like I am having. I am having a giveaway, and my dashboard says I have 20 comments on that post, but there are only 9 showing (yours being one of them). The other comments are gone, so if Blogger doesn't get it together, I'm not sure what I will do. (Actually, I thought there were about 24 comments as of yesterday, even though Dashboard says 20...weird, huh?)

Anyhow, blessings to you,

Oh, I've been having trouble with my blog..specifically with comments that nice blogger friends left for me. I published all of them!!! and blogger has deleted them. It's as if they were never there...so just know if you've written, Blogger deleted it :( :( I hope they get the problem fixed..

Alrighty, I'm really excited about this giveaway. The stocking is really cute..and the flower print on the stocking actually matched my Shabby Chic fitted sheet!!! So cool...
Love and hugs, Heather :)
