2.20

WOW, February always flies by, doesn't it.  It has just 2 less days than some months, but seems so much shorter :)  It's been a wonderful Anniversary month so far for Paper Smooches.  How about another giveaway?

I have one of these brand new beauties below to give away:

Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors are handcrafted, professional-quality Japanese watercolors with a highly blendable, creamy-smooth consistency. The colors are rich and intense, and exhibit greater opacity than European or American watercolors in traditional Japanese style.
Try these lush watercolors for sketching, illustration, sumi-e, etegami, ink-like wash painting, and more. All colors are certified non-toxic. Pans measure approximately 2" × 1".


This watercolor set retails for about $30.00

I'll meet that value and also offer up a $30. Paper Smooches gift code prize for a second lucky winner.

AND a THIRD winner will be chosen as well...the prize...I'm not sure yet, it will be a surprise :)

Just comment here and tell me your favorite COLOR.  You have until midnight on February 23rd to comment.  Winners will be announced on February 24th.

Our PS DT blog hop is this Thurdsay....you will have your first peeks of our March release.  It's BIGGER than normal (pun intended)

Your eye’s pupil got its name from Latin “Pupilla”, which means little doll. Because that’s what you see when you look into someones pupil, the little doll version of yourself.


Thank you for stopping by :)

  21. Blue! Pretty much all blues, except for pastels. We once had a Crown Victoria in an insipid shade of light blue. My husband loved that car (not for the color, but because it could go 0-90 in 10 seconds!) and I -tolerated- it. It would take a lot to redeem that shade of blue for me :).

  27. We're moving into a brand new house (I'm so stoked I can barely think straight!) in March so I've been thinking long and hard about 'accent' colours to go with your light/dark grey interior. Lots of selections, but I keep coming back to teal/turquoise. So...that's my answer: teal! Awesome giveaways; thank you!
