Giveaway Draw Results......

My cowgirl hat

802 numbers

The Director Paul, and his dogs at Rescue The Animals.. pulls the first number...

200 ~ Summer Smith - Tennessee, USA

Paul dives in for a second number....

240 ~ Stephanie Smith ~ Queensland, Australia

CONGRATULATIONS Summer and Stephanie. 

Summer... I didn't know what your last name was, until I just went to your blog to see if it was on your profile... didn't think to do that when I was typing out all the names last night!  What a coincidence you both have the same last name, and both fall into the 200's!!! 

As we raised so much money, I am giving away a doll from my shop.  The kittens really wanted to play with the bits of paper, so when I got home, I thought I would let them.....

Texas picked one up in his mouth..

Texas couldn't watch, unlike Mulberry.....

Soggy paper but, CONGRATULATIONS Shauna Henry 328 - Oklahoma, USA.  You get to choose a doll from my shop.

Gosh, I guess 'S' names are lucky!!

Lastly.... another doll from my shop goes to a fellow artist, and a generous friend.  You know who you are Pattee :O)

Thank you so much to everyone. I feel so bad everybody didn't win.
Thanks to you all, we raised........ $2240.00

Rescue The Animals wishes to thank you too, and will feature the event on their website, once I get a photo sorted!

Something was 'bugging' me in my head, and I felt the need to give one more doll away... ok, maybe it was the glass of red I just enjoyed, or the fact that why didn't I check to see the name Mulberry had tried to eat?

So, I checked, and 449 ~ Crystal Massuda from Massachusetts.. you are a winner too.
