Tax Day Giveaway!!

Happy Tax Day!!
I finally finished the last of my taxes Thursday.  Needless to say the stress this causes is almost unbearable and it probably would not be so bad if I did not procrastinate it to the very last minute!!
Then to wake up to 2 inches of snow on the ground makes this day complete.
So is all the snow and cold due to my New Years resolution of  trying to keep Christmas in my heart this whole year? 
In honor of all the snow I will be having a giveaway of a this snowman ornament with a cardinal on his hat and the word painted on this ornament says it all!
Be a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post.
New followers always welcome.
Leave a way for me to contact you if you do not have a blog.
If you would like to share this giveaway I would appreciate it! 
A winner will be picked on April 19 and announced on the 20th.

Open to all USA and Canadian friends. Good Luck to all!

I have to share what I painted for my sister.
She had this napkin holder that my dad had made for her little cub scout group years ago.  
For her birthday she told me she wanted this painted and gave me the suggestions for what she wanted on it.  This is how it turned out.  I think she likes it!

 Hope you all are having a fabulous tax day!  I am now.
