One World One Heart!

Welcome to ARTic Blonde Creations art blog. I hope you enjoy your visit!

First of all I would like to say a big thank you to Lisa Swifka, the organizer and hostess of this marvelous event. This is my second year participating in this event and it is also the end of this fabulous annual event. I am so excited to be able to participate again and meet bloggers from around the world. To celebrate the One World One Heart Blog Event, I am giving away two mini file packs and two ATCs to two lucky winners.

As this is a blogging event, you must have an active blog to enter to win these prizes. To be entered into the draw, please leave me a comment with a link back to your blog or an email address, so that I can get in touch with you, if you win.
This event runs through to February 17th, and the winner will be announced on February 18th.

Good Luck and thank you so much for visiting my blog :)
