Here's why we LOVE blog giveaways...

Oooo....look what I won!

I entered a drawing hosted by Artist Halloween Queens, not expecting to win...but I did.  When I got home the other day there was a package waiting for me.
My prize was neatly wrapped in these wonderful "Halloween" tissue paper with the artist's card and a sweet little note too.

As I excitedly worked my way through the layers of tissue..
there he was, my Dracula Bat Ornie!  He was more spectacular than I expected. The details that Karen of Hope in the Heart of Darkness put in to the making of this fabulous Halloween ornament is remarkable.  She didn't miss a single stitch or fiber, just check out the loop on the top hat and the beads on the feet. 
This little guy measures an impressive 9" tall with his wing span of 8.5" wide.  Dracula is made from felt, satin, ribbons, beads and crystals for the eyes and buttons.  I love the fact she put in so much details that you can hang him upside down or right side up.
I had been checking him out for awhile before discovering her wonderful touch of her very own artistic tag (underneath his cape...I just love it).
I just can't seem to say enough about this awesome prize and all the workmanship that went in to him.  But doesn't he have the greatest face...LOL!
Thanks to all the wonderful artists and Karen for such a wonderful drawing and prize.  Be sure to stop by the Artistic Halloween Queens blog for there are many talented artists there and Karen's blog to see more of her wonderful work at Hope in the Heart of Darkness. She is a sculptor and 3-D artist with many different mediums, just amazing work.

Now I can't wait for Halloween...I think I'll hang him up for inspiration!

Bright blessings
