A give away for my 1st Aniversary ..Get R Done and Art Work Friday

It's Friday and time for Get-R-Done Friday over at ClassyChassy, so be sure and go by and check out the other great projects and tell Classy thanks for hosting this for us.
I am also linking this to a new Meme that I found at D Dzines....where DeeDee is hosting Artwork Friday. She has some very nice art work to show, stop by and say hi....
But first let me say I am not only joining these 2 memes today but I am announcing a new give away to celebrate my 1 year Anniversary....
My project this week is a painting I have been working on. I decided last week when I realized my Anniversary was going to be this week to do something special for it, I have noticed that so many of my friends are cat lovers along with being lovers of antiques and of the simpler things in life. So I decided to do a canvas painting of a young lady from another era holding her loving conpanion. I worked on this idea for awhile before settling on this picture I hope you like it....I knew I had to Get R Done this week.....
I used an 11" x 16" stretch canvas.
Now that I think about it I could have used this post for 2d time around Tuesday cause it was a canvas I found in a rummage sale for .75 cents...check out the last picture the frame has writing on it and a sales sticker for .75...but for some reason the canvas was blank....
Click on picture to enlarge....

If you would like to enter the drawing please leave me a comment on any post from now till next Friday Jan 15th, when I will draw the winner at midnight on the 15th. and post winner on the 16th..
If you are a follower and leave a comment your name will be entered 2 times and if you post it to your blog, come back and tell me and you will be entered 3 times.
Hope you like it enough to enter my give away........
I am Grateful for the talent I have been blessed with...Momma always told me if God gives you a talent and you don't use it he will take it back.
Thank you all again for making this year one of the best, with new friends and good conversations.
