One World One Heart

I have chosen to take part in One World One Heart this year.  It is an international blogging event and give away intended to bring bloggers together and make new connections.  The means to accomplish this is the fun of a give away.  As a participant I have chosen the above ACEO card for my give away.  This 2.5" x 3.5" aceo card is a giclee print of a portion of an original collage that I created for a friend.  The aceo card is then embellished with vintage lace and a touch of green bling making it unique.  The card is also backed with mat board for stability so you can display it on a tiny easel.

The drawing will take place on February 15 at 10:00 p.m. Central Time.  The theme this year for One World One Heart is Magic Carpet Ride.  The woman in the card has her hat on and is dressed and ready to go.  To participate comment here and tell me where you think she is going and why.  Use your imagination and let's have fun.  Make it interesting.  Be sure and give me a link or email where I can contact you should you be the winner.  I will place all the names in my heart shaped tin bowl, mix them up, and draw the winner's name.

Have fun!

Elizabeth, this is so beautiful! I want it!!
I think it must be Easter Sunday and this lady is all dressed up for church. She has a new hat for the occasion, as all proper young ladies once did!

ArtSnark said...

Lovely piece! Hmmm....she looks like a well dressed traveler. Ready for a trip to Persia circa 1900

Lrc said...

a wonderful idea...i'd love to be part of it.
I think that this is a young girl who has just found a magic lamp while looking through her closet. She has never seen anything like it and rubs it. Next thing she knows, she is on this flying carpet and she is trying to decide where to go!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I think she's headed to warmth, especially since it's gotten cold and wet in my world.

Alice said...

She's beautiful! She is traveling to the Hotel Del Coronado to meet the love of her life whom she has not seen since the war. Stepping off the trolley, she sees him at once, his tall frame at least a head taller than the rest. He is smiling at her, that lazy smile that she can't resist. Her feet barely touch the ground as she runs to his open arms, and eager to tell him of her recent travels to a far away land.


sewfunky said...

She is going to tell her father that she is in love with the boy next door... ;)

She looks a bit like she's trying to decide where she is going to sell her emeralds (that's what the beads look like to me). Maybe another country and she's in disguise because she stole them from her French lover. Oh my! How my mind wanders..... :) Thank you for the chance to win one of your great creations. It's nice to meet you and don't forget to visit both of my blogs for two giveaways!

Hi Elizabeth! Your piece is really gorgeous and I know someone (musical) who would treasure this. Trying to be era "correct" here but I'll say that this lovely young lady is waiting to go driving with her friends where they'll find a nice open field and have a picnic and lazy day of reading books and catching up on gossip (like they do here on Gov., Island every year!). How'd I do?? Please enter my giveaway too if you get a chance, isn't OWOH fun!? Wishing you much peace, M
