Anniversary blog: Give-away!

In 2006 I started with this blog, but had no idea what to expect. At first I only posted in Dutch but after a while I switched to English to reach more readers.When I started participating Illustration Friday, my blog grew faster and I met so many wonderful blog-friends from all over the world! You have inspired me with your comments and nice words.

On 23rd August it is my 5th anniversary of my blog and I want to celebrate it with a Give-Away to say 'thank you' to all of you! I've selected two of my ATC's (shown below) and you can have them! But there are 'rules' ;)

In order to participate in my give-away I want you to do the following things (not all steps  are necessary, but the more you do, the more chance you have to win!)
  1. leave a comment and tell me which one of the two ATC's you prefer;
  2. become a follower of my blog (if you already are a follower, let me know in your comment);
  3. put an announcement on your own blog to tell people about this give-away (and let me know in your comment).

If you do one of these things, your name will be put in the bowl once. If you do two of them: your name will be put in the bowl twice and if you do all of them: your name will be put in the bowl three times!

You can enter untill Tuesday 23rd August 16:00h GMT/UCT time (18:00h Amsterdam time). After that I have got a very independent judge to pick two names out of the bowl: my hamster Maya will do the honors.



  1. alvast gefeliciteerd Brigitte met je blogverjaardag! Je blog is in 5 jaar enorm gegroeid. Het is elke keer weer genieten van je werk. Ik doe trouwens niet mee met de give away. ;-)

  2. 5 jaar ... wat een tijd! Mijn blog bestaat komende zondag ook alweer 1 jaar. Succes met deze give away! Ik vind de zonnebloem heel mooi, en zou er graag voor in aanmerking komen. Ik ben al volger ;-) en zal kijken hoe ik jouw blog verwerk in een berichtje op de mijne ...

  3. Congrats to you. Your art is always so beautiful.
    Of course I would pick the daisy if I win. :)
    Yes, I am a follower.
    You just reminded me that I forgot my blog anniversary again. I started in August in 2005. I better give that some thought.

    Via 'Inge' kwam ik op je blog terecht, wat maak je mooie dingen! Geweldig om het 5 jaar vol te houden, ik zou zeggen: op naar de volgende 5 jaar!
    Ik zet je blog bij m'n favorieten en doe graag mee met de giveaway en dan ga ik voor de lepelaar.
    Veel succes!
