I Heart You... and a Giveaway!

I was playing around with some sketches the other day and I thought they were a little too irresistible to leave in sketch format... I just had to color them in.

So here are a couple of little prints for my I Heart You collection (named by Holly. Thank you Holly! - BTW, Holly is having a giveaway, too, so run right over {HERE} and enter!):

I Heart You, Bear
5 x 7 print

I Heart You, Dinosaur
5 x 7 print

I Heart You, Frog
5 x 7 print

Let me just say, I heart these boots. Seriously, I want some.

I have a bunch more sketches, with all sorts of awesome hats and little stuffed, squishable, squeezable, lovable animals... but first, how 'bout another giveaway? It'll be a good one, I promise.

GIVEAWAY (yay!) :

From today, until next Friday (June 5th), leave a comment letting me know what you heart, be it cats, rainbows, sunflowers, jelly beans... just let me know what you heart, heart, and heart some more (and mean it sincerely!) and you will be entered to win:

An original custom 5 x 7 I Heart You illustration.

That's right, original. Design it around your own little kid, a kid you know, yourself as a kid, your significant other as a kid, your grandma as a kid, your brother as a kid... I think you get the idea. Basically, whomever you want.

You get to pick the hair color, skin color, squishable, squeezable, lovable stuffed animal, awesome hat (to match the animal, of course) and illustration color palette. It will be yours, all yours (except for the rights to reproduce your image. That will still be mine, all mine, as image copyright does not transfer from me to you). I'll be adding some limited prints of your illustration to ye old shoppe, but the original -- that'll be yours.

PLEASE leave a way to contact you, via Etsy shop, email address, or blog, in the event that you are my winner!

Looking to add multiple entries? Shout this giveaway out to everyone you know, via Twitter, Facebook, or on your own blog. Let me know how you promoted this giveaway and I'll add more entries to the pot. Just leave me the link in a comment here, so I'll be able to count it.

Max 4 entries per person.

So, tell me, please. What do you heart?
