New Card Giveaway, no strings attached (Plus Julyathon--not really)

I have a new friend. Her name is Mubin and she lives in India. Isn't she beautiful? She was hoping to win some of my art cards, but I had already given them to John, so . . .

I am hereby announcing another card giveaway, no strings attached. I thought giving away a few cards or some other gift would be a JOY, passing on gifts through a chain of givers, but not everyone saw it that way, so I am trying again. Anyone can sign up. In two weeks, I will use a random number generator to choose the winner. I send them three cards, either the three featured here, or any three from the last giveaway. Or any combination of these or any you see featured on my blog. Winners choice. The cards will be made from prints of my artwork mounted on card stock. I have not made them yet, but I will.

I am leaving Sunday and will be gone about ten days. When I return, I will pick a winner. Sometimes, I have trouble with the internet, and sometimes I am too busy to get online, but I will return to this, in about two week, that is, on Thursday, August 11th, or as close to that as I can manage.

If you leave a comment, I will consider you as a contest entrant UNLESS YOU SAY OTHERWISE. I wish Mubin and all of you who take the time to comment many blessings in your life and good luck with the random number generator.

I missed another walking day on Monday when I had the grandchildren, and have been making it up by doing extra every day since then.

What a generous offer! Your art is beautiful. Perhaps if I win, I'll send a card to the lovely, lovely Mubin and her happy umbrella.

Mubin said...

Thank you for your generosity Mary! I am touched. Your art is inspiring.

Mubin Sultan,

John said...

You are a most generous person Mary, as I have been the very lucky recipient of you last give away please exclude me as it would be unfair to take away the chance for someone elso to enjoy your beautiful work.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Thank you all for your kind comments! :-D I will let you know what number the random number generator picks when I return from my trip.

Rita said...

Mary, you are such a beautiful person with such a beautiful effort from your part. Your art is lovely....and yeah Mubin needs a special special mention right here..she is a sweetheart with an unimaginable talent.I would be lucky to have one of your art cards.

Found you via John (healing seed). Been enjoying myself as I find my way around your many blogs. Wow! You sure keep busy. Very talented lady you are. I'm loving the crickets on this page. I love crickets (all my neighbors think me crazy for it).

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Hi Nacherlover! Welcome, and yr now in the running--today's the day I will choose a winner! But I am having trouble with my computer, so, in about an hour, maybe?

Thanks for stopping by. :-D

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

My computer has been down all day. It is up again, but I don't know for how long.

So quick before it fails, I'm going to pick a winner for my card giveaway.

here are the numbers: Carrie = 1
Mubin = 2
Krishna = 3
Rita = 4
nacher luver = 5

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Now I am going to go to the Random number generator and put in the numbers and see what it cranks out.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

RANDOM.ORG offers true random numbers to anyone on the Internet. The randomness comes from atmospheric noise, which for many purposes is better than the pseudo-random number algorithms typically used in computer programs. People use RANDOM.ORG for holding drawings, lotteries and sweepstakes, to drive games and gambling sites, for scientific applications and for art and music.

so I put in the numbers, and it cranked out the #3. Right in the center of 1-5.

Congratulations to Krishna.

However, I do not know how to contact Khrishna. Krishna, you have one week from tomorrow to contact me and let me know

1)what three cards you would like, thos shown here, or one from any of my previous cards or artworks,

2)your snail mail address.

You can leave it as a comment and I will delete as soon as I get it.

If, after August 19th, I have not heard from you, on the 20th, I will crank the random number generator again and try to contact the next person on the list.

PS, I am sorry, Mubin, that the random number generator didn't pick you--maybe next time?
