Giveaway and some Exemplars

Hey guys!! Thank you so much for all your comments. It really is quite exciting to join the ranks of the "Published!"  Jenny did a great job of assembling different talented artists and some have even been my teachers in the past so I am feeling especially blessed.
 I am not really sure why the publishers chose not to include my exemplars but those were submitted to them along with lots of other images that I will show you soon. And as I said, I would like to do a little mini workshop as to how to draw, color and use these fun versals.

So, I decided that I will do a giveaway for a signed copy of the book along with printed signed copies of the exemplars to the winner. I have added them below and you have my permission to print these out and use them as you please since they were sent in to be included in the book. 

Mr Random.org will pick the winner so you know the drill, just leave a comment saying you want the book and exemplars and you will be thrown into the hat!

I will announce the winner on Saturday night February 23.
