**original painting giveaway**

Sarah Carter may be my favorite artist.  Period.

We first met when I worked at the same mega church as her husband.  That was six years ago {gasp} and now I am honored to call her friend.  Sarah is a beautiful woman, mother, and artist.  
Here are more examples of her work


There is a certain something that draws me into her work. 
 To me, these pieces are dreamy, ethereal, and moving.

Each print is adhered to a 10"x10" sustainable hardwood bamboo panel and is ready to hang. The price for each is $125 and this includes shipping expenses. Sarah is happy to work to create a special size, just send her an email at sarahcarterstudio@yahoo.com to discuss details.

Sarah has an amazing blog that highlights her inspiration, family, and their adventure in adopting  from Ghana.  All of the proceeds from her artwork go toward the funding of their adoption. 

 Honestly, Sarah's journey has inspired me in my own desire to adopt.  

Sarah has generously painted a 12x12 acrylic on canvas with a photo-transfer that is sealed with a water proof gel medium.  
Today we are giving it away!  To you!  
Can you even handle the excitement?
Isn't this so beautiful?
It could be yours.

You may enter up to four times.  Here's how:
1) Become a follower of a delightful design and leave a comment to let me know.
2) Visit Sarah Carter Studio  then come back here to tell me what you like.
3)  Follow Sarah's blog on Facebook  and leave a comment that you did.
4) Tweet this giveaway or link to it on Facebook then let me know.

A winner will be chosen randomly and announced on Sunday, March 6.
Now get busy and enter! 
Big thanks to Sarah for such a beautiful painting!

  14. Sarah personally introduced me to Sabrina Ward Harrison and graced me with her sweet spirit. One of my favorite pieces she's done is the three wilting dandelions (I think that's what they are). Despite the wilt, there is so much life! I simply love Sarah!
