Summer Giveaway or Two?

I am having two giveaways!
To honor our soldiers and their families for the sacrifices they make so that we may have freedom, the first giveaway is for soldiers and their families, both past and present, fallen or alive.  I can never repay these soldiers or their families for all that they have and still do for this country but this is a small token of my appreciation.  So for the first giveaway if you are a soldier or have an immediate family member who is now or has been in the military services, let me know in this post and you will have a chance to win this Betsy Mouse, The Star Spangled Banner Doll. This includes husband, wife, children, mother, father, sisters or brothers and grandchildren. There will also be a summer item in this giveaway but I haven't decided what I am going to make yet.LOL.
The second giveaway is for everyone.  It will also be a Betsy Mouse, The Star Spangled Banner Doll and a summer item.
The rules are simple.  All you have to do is be a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post.  Be sure and include if you get to enter for the military giveaway also.
For extra chances, do any of the following and let me know in this post which ones you have done.
Post this giveaway with a link back to my blog on your sidebar.
Like my Facebook and leave a comment about this giveaway.
Visit my Etsy shop and tell me which is your favorite item   www.yorkiesprimitives.etsy.com
That gives you five chances and remember veterans and their families will be entered in both giveaways
The deadline for entries is June 24 and I will announce the winners on June 25.  That should give plenty of time to get your package by July 4th.

Hi Val! Would love to be a part of your Giveaway. My Father was a Marine and fought in the Korean Conflict. I remember asking him if he was scared and he said there were men as big as football players who were so scared they were crying for their mamas. Thanks for honoring our guys and gals!
I'll also post this on my sidebar!

Carol Stuck said...

How wonderful that you are giving back to those who served in the armed forces. My father was special forces during the Korean War and my father-in-law served during WWII, my husband during the Vietnam war and my son in the Navy for four years.

Thanks so much.

Hi, Val! I am a fellow OFG Member and new follower of your blog! I would love all possible chances to win! (That is, I will do all items to earn those entries!) :o)

My Grandfathers were in the Army Air Force Reserves (known as at that time) and were in WW2. My Father was in the Army and did 2 (yes, 2) tours in Vietnam. His brothers were in the Marines and Air Force (this brother was in Vietnam the same time as one of my Dad's tours). I also have another uncle who was in the Navy. So, a little military history here! lol

I stopped by your Etsy shop and LOVE the Americana Sheep Hanger!

I will also be posting on my blog and heading over to FB for you, too!

Hi Valerie,
Fabulous giveaway and for such a great cause. Love your bees and watermelon!
My Husband was in the Air Force making me an Air Force "Single" Parent. He was deployed to Saudi, Turkey and Panama. He missed about the first year and a half of our daughter's two years-that made him so sad.
Have a brother and a cousin in the AF at present.
Already following you everywhere.
Thanks for such a fun giveaway!

I'm a new follower & your Betsy Mouse is darling! I'm a little over whelemed with the show of military support on so many blogs & it puts a huge smile on my face to know so many people care about us. My husband is an active duty Marine who will retire from full 20 year service next March. He served in Dessert Storm & Operation Iraqi Freedom. I met him while I was stationed with the Navy in New Orleans. I was his Doc ;) Again, thanks for the opportunity to win this darling creation!

I will be adding your giveaway on my Shweetpotatodolls.blogspot.com blog and My favorite item in your ETSY shoppe now that is hard, guess it has to be you unique "It's A Crow's Life Swing".
