Post #99 Give-away announcement


It’s post number 99 for Viridian’s Postcard blog! And time for a give-way.


I started this blog when my first postcard blog entry on my regular quilting blog drew more comments than any post I had done before. And I really enjoyed reading everyone else’s entries for Postcard Friendship Friday. And so another blog is born, back in April 2009.

I have described the individual postcards in several series before. The most recent series is of postcard reproductions of Works Progress Administration (WPA) posters that were made to promote various national parks in the USA. I have ten of these postcards (more are available on the Ranger Doug website) and there are two more to go.

The prize to the lucky winner is my set of 10 unused postcards, mailed to you in a sturdy cardboard mailer. I will be using the list randomizer from Random.org to choose the winner.

How to enter this contest: Leave a comment on this post and please include a way to contact you if your blogger profile does not include your email address or blog name. A mention of this contest on your blog would be great but not necessary. A give-away is also a promotional scheme after all.

Enter by Tuesday June 29 at 6 PM Eastern USA time.  (I have family vacation the week before this.) At that time I will close entries and use a random number generator or random list generator (See Random.org) to pick the winner. The next post will announce the winner. Once I have a shipping address the postcards are off to its new happy home.

Good luck!
Viridian

I just bought a couple of postcards in an antique store and then found this blog not too long ago and I'm kind of hooked.
Keep up the good work!

I like poster designs on postcards, and the WPA posters are especially nice.

I won't make this an entry to your draw because I'm so far away, but it's a really great prize for some lucky person!

Sheila:
Anyone in the world can enter this contest, if you would like the cards. In my last giveaway on my other blog I sent fabric to Israel and it arrived safely.

I am gathering/creating a mini-collection of maximum cards with National Parks.
Also, if you find a postcard with wild mammal(s), and it might be available for swap with me, please let me know.
