Go to Jail -- Sponsored Giveaway!


 Remember this?

The go-to-jail card in the ever popular Monopoly game! (Thank you, Parker, for many hours of fun playing this game!)

Today we begin our linky party and sponsored giveaway: we're calling it the "Go to Jail" party, because we want to know the answer to a very important question . . . 

You say you are a quilter, right?
  
(That adorable graphic is a design by Amy Bradley, and you can access and enjoy her awesome stuff by clicking here. They're a hoot!)

Is there enough evidence to convict you? (Grin)


Well, let's see about that!

Here's an example:

 In the guest room....
In the spare room....
                                                             In my kitchen....

Write a blog post, or make a collage on Flickr, and show us the "evidence" that will convict you of being a quilter!

Then use the URL of your post or collage and join our linky party!

This is going to be fun! And just to make it more fun, we have a sponsored giveaway -- at the end of the linky party, we will hold a random drawing and award some prizes! Woot!

Check this out:

The lovely Shannon at FabricsNQuilts is offering not one, but TWO prizes for one lucky winner!

This adorable sign for your quilting area, valued at $16 US:


and a $15 e-gift certificate (with free shipping included), to spend in the FabricsNQuilts store! This is a small sample of what you will find in the online store, and the brick-and-mortar store in Tennessee, for all of you lucky enough to visit with Shannon!



That's not all . . .
Padsworth is offering another winner a full year's subscription to OleFrogEyes, the virtual design wall for quilters


And our bestest thread friend, Aurifil, is offering another winner a lovely package of thread:


Now, here are the rules (there are not too many):

1. Write a blog post or create a Flickr collage (instructions can be found at Flickr, or on youtube). Then join our linky party here at the Lilypad, and leave a comment to let us know you are partying with us!
2. Towards the end of the week, make sure that you have visited and left some comment love for all of your fellow party-goers. Leave a comment to tell us that you did.
3. Stop in at FabricsNQuilts and leave a comment telling what is calling your name!
4. Travel through cyberspace and check out the gallery at OleFrogEyes, and tell us whose quilt you just love! (Click on a letter, like "J" or "S" and then check out the quilters' projects....tsk, tsk, some of them haven't posted yet, but many of them have! Enjoy! (And leave a comment here)
5. You don't have to be a follower to win, but we'd love to have you, and we'll allow another entry if you follow and leave a comment to let us know!

We do ask that you include a backlink or at least tell your visitors where to come back to, to continue partying!

The linky party will be open for a full week, to allow everyone to post and enjoy. Then we will ask Mr. Random to choose our winners!

Padsworth, DragonDrop and I are so excited! (Gavel pounding) 
Are you a quilter?  Show us the evidence!
Let's party!

Love,
