Hummingbird button giveaway

Last week there was a giveaway on Button Floozies of one of my hand painted robin buttons.  The winner was Tee.  I admit I had great fun reading all the comments and wished everyone could have one.....so here's another chance.

Just leave a comment on this post and I will pick a winner July 18!  I've added a lot of buttons to my Etsy site and am busy painting bluebirds and goldfinches...

The hummingbird is just the most delightful and beautiful miniature that I have ever seen. To hold it in my hand would be a joy too hard to describe.

It would be loved and treasured forever and handed down as am heirloom to my son.

You are so talented and how you manage to create such wonderous miniatures is beyond me - and a truly special gift.

I'd love to win this button. Your class was great, but my little bird still looks to me like it has a bad comb over.

I've just read through your button painting tutoiral, it made me feel I could actually do it. I know my daughter would love to give it a go, she's been bedridden for four years, but has started having me buy things for her to start crafting again when she's recovered. If I won your lovely button I'd give it to her. Thanks for the chance to win your artwork. Hugs lin

Renee said...

Your blog is like a treasure trove of ideas and inspirations. I truly enjoy peeking at all of your fine work. Thank you for sharing with us!

As for your button give-away, I simply could not resist. Your hummingbird is lovely. (Win or not, I think I see a green and pink crazy quilt square somewhere in the future. Your colors are so pretty together.)
