"More Skye Jewels" Win + Give-Away!

Butterfly ROSE Custom Drilled Ephemera Tile set

A couple of weeks ago, I won a $50 gift certificate to "More Skye Jewels" during a random drawing of participants for the February Art Bead Scene Challenge.  I couldn't believe my luck!

DRAGONFLY 1X1 Custom Drilled Ephemera Tile

This Etsy shop, along with "Skye Jewels" is owned by Marie-Noel Voyer-Cramp from Calgary, Canada.   Marie also has a delightful blog, a website and you can find her on Facebook as well!

Fresco 1.5 inch Ephemera Pendant

I say all of this in introduction, because if you are not already familiar with Marie, I'd like you to look her up.  If you do know her work, but haven't visited her shops recently, please do.  Just in the last week I've seen more lovely new things appear there!

Writing Ephemera 1.5 inch Pendant

NOW, back to ME!  :-)   

I got to pick out $50 worth of free merchandise from Marie's "More Skye Jewels" shop which includes ephemera charms and pendants on rustic wood tiles.  But I'm telling you, I had a really difficult time trying to decide how to narrow down my choices to $50  (which is way more than I would allow myself to spend if I were ordering items myself), and still, STILL, when they arrived, I couldn't believe how much more wonderful they looked up close!  

Ephemera Charm Earring Pairs


Now here is where the good part comes in for YOU!   ...I promised to share one of the charms I won with one of you in a drawing.   Marie, however, kind person that she is, offered an ADDITIONAL charm for the give-away!   And it's not just any charm, but one of the newest to her collection! 

Poppy 1X1  Ephemera Tile

(I love the colors and detail in that one!)  

I also requested some of her solid copper headpins.   They are really nice, so for my little part, I'm sharing 6 of my stash of 10 with the lucky winner.   

Solid Copper Headpins

The rules are so simple this time:

ONE STEP:  In order to be included, please leave a comment at the end of this entry saying that you want to be included in the drawing!    That's it!

All who do so by Thu, 3/29/12 at midnight Central time will be included in the drawing.   The winner will be announced Fri, 3/30.   

My sincere thanks to Marie for her generous loot and additional charm for our give-away!  My thanks to the organizers of the "Art Bead Scene" Monthly Challenges" as well!   

Best wishes to each of you!

    You picked out some beautiful tiles with your winnings. I have been admiring Marie's tiles for a little while now, but have not purchased any yet. So saying this I would love to have the chance to win the tile you are giving away, thank you for the chance.
