~CC's "Pinknique" Surprise Package... I Can't Keep A Surprise Like This...Drats! ;) Deadline for Guess is 11pm EST, 8pm PST

Thanks Sweet Beverly for hosting another successful and sought after fabulous Pink Saturday. Please drop by and see Beverly to see all the lovely pink shares today!
I have a combination of Pinks today, I like to think of my personal Pinks as "Pinknique", combining the words pink and unique... ;)

So, first on the list is one of my custom photo note cards that I create. Each note card I create has the actual photograph on the front cover. In the left hand corner of the front of the card under the photo it has an inscription in French. On the right bottom corner it is signed by "moi" and dated. It's a great way to send a note to a beloved friend or loved one and then they can have it framed as a keepsake. I like to call this "Pinknique" Iris "The Dancer", as you can see her one petal up on the left hand side, as if she is delicately in a ballet pose. ©Photography by ~CC

Secondly, for my Pinknique Item...
I Can't Keep A Surprise! Not this one anyway...
I participated in Show & Tell Friday & decided I'd offer my first Giveaway Challenge!
Deadline to enter is Sunday, 2/8, @ 8pm.

My prizes were initially announced as a choice of a "Surprise Grab Bag Package" or the choice of the featured Longaberger Mini Heart Basket with the fabric and plastic liner (see top right of my side bar)

I decided to SHOW YOU THE SURPRISE Grab Bag PACKAGE for Pink Saturday! ;)
And, here it is... SURPRISE...
1. "NEW" Sheer Organza Orchid Pink table topper w/tiny multifaceted balls on each corner
2. A Vintage find on a recent shopping spree: Noritake White & Gold Trim Porcelain Tea Cup
3. Sweet Ribbon & Gold beaded door hanger, or hang it on the handle of a teapot
4. 6 Blank Photo Note Cards custom designed by "Moi" showcasing flowers and/or teacups
5. Hedley's Pure Ceylon English Breakfast Tea (50 tea bags) ~ One of my favorites!
See a sneak peek of the items that "YOU" could possibly be the winner of!
The stamp on the bottom of the Tea Cup
What a lovely SURPRISE Grab Bag...I'd like to win this one! ;)
I kept seeing everyone else having give aways and it seemed like so much fun...
It just seemed like today would be a great day to offer my first Give Away Challenge!
All you have to do to get your name in the "hat" to possibly win one of the gifts of your choice is to do the following:
If you can guess who the eyes belong to...
It's simple....leave a comment on my post today, tell me "Who or What" these eyes belong to. For each person with a correct guess, your name goes in a hat~a winner's name will be drawn.
Deadline for Comments is Sunday, 2/8, @ 8pm.
Gift will be shipped to the winner on 2/9. Shipment limited to within USA.
Now...this is odd, I keep saving this pic so the eyes are side by side, but each time it's imported, they end up like this! eeks! Have fun leaving a comment with your guess! And, don't forget to visit Beverly to view the other shares! ;)
"Guess Who or What These Eyes Belong To"
(Don't laugh if I left a message at your place saying deadline was 8pmEST and 11pmPST for entry...I got it backwards) teahehe! ;)
Gotta love me ~CC


Linda said...

Happy Pink for guessing the eyes, it looks like a doll perhaps? which one I have no idea!

Rose Haven said...

I love the Iris Card!! Very unique!!

What a lovely give-away!! I have no idea who or what the "eyes" belong to!! Nada, zip, zilch!

Don't forget our give-aways...if you know anyone looking to win a Teacup or a Blog Make-over...send 'em over!


Meadowsweet Days said...

What a great give-a-way, Catherine! Ok, this is probably going to be real dumb, but is it Santa?


Cynthia said...

Hi CC,
I really want to win your lovely give-away. I am now thinking that those eyes belong to one of your dolls. Maybe a porcelien one? Love your posts!! Cindy

Raggedy Girl said...

I would like them to belong to a big fat white Persian kitty but I think maybe a doll.

BECKY said...

Hi Catherine!! Thanks so much for visiting and following my blog!! I saw in your profile that we have similar likes, and that's cool!

I have a guess for these eyes! My guess is that they belong to a cute little white Furby.

Giveaways are a blast...I'll be doing another one for spring/my 75 post!

Have a lovely day!

I have no idea who the eyes belong to...They look like they belong to a stuffed animal or something...I'll look again...

Yes, it looks like a stuffed animal.

Thanks for coming to visit me on my first PS!

Claudie said...

I'm going to be stubborn and not guess... just kidding. I think they are Chloe's eyes when she was a puppy lol
I actually think it's one of your grand babies fur baby.
But then it might be an old furby ok I give up.
Thank you for being such a persistent friend. I love your comments.
I read your blog right to the very first post. Now I know why your called "de the cups" (avec un accent et gue) you have so many pretty one's I would have a very hard time choosing one. If I'm ever in Georgia we must to to the Baron Tea Room. I love it.
Your Canadian friend who can't win your giveaway boo hoo " )
Love Claudie

First let me say how lovely your handmade notecards are! Who wouldn't want to receive a little note writen on these! Now as to those eyes....hmmmm they somehow look so familiar!I'm going to kick myself when you reveal the answer...all I could determine is that they must belong to a white furry stuff animal or doll....this was a good guessing game!!

RobinfromCA said...

Oh, all the pinks in your giveaway are beautiful! However, I have no idea who those eyes belong to. They definitely look like a doll's or stuffed animal's eyes. I see a little bit of fur on the side which makes me think of the animal but the doll could have a fur hat on . They look hand painted though. Of course, none of this is actually an answer and now I'm just rambling on. :-)

Happy Pink Saturday!

Deborah said...

You know, I have know idea who those bright blue eyes belong to, but I don't think it's a person...I'm making a wacky guess -the Easter Bunny?

Okay, I tried!
Thanks for the fun and now I'll lay awake all night wondering what it really is!
