Time for a Giveaway!!

Happy Friday everyone and happy first day of fall (or spring, depending on where in the world you live :) Gosh, this year is flying by so fast!! It will be Christmas before we know it :) I wanted to share some photos of the beautiful hummingbirds that have spent the summer here. I've taken a ton of pictures, but I haven't had the chance to look at most of them.



I just realized that I didn't process any of the photos of hummers with gorgeous ruby throats. I'll post them soon.


We had an incredible amount of hummers this summer. This isn't the greatest video...it was taken through a screen, but this is just one of four feeders and you can see how many there are (you can really see them if you click full screen). It was a swarm :)


I am going away on vacation today and I won't be able to visit you while I'm gone. I don't want you to forget me, so how about a giveaway??!!


I have not one giveaway, but two!! One person will win a Lemoncrft Fresh Summer set of 6x6 paper, ephemera cards and buttons, and one will win a Lemoncraft Christmas Carols set of 6x6 paper, ephemera cards and buttons. I'm not going to make you jump through hoops. All you have to do is:
  • Pop this picture on your sidebar or share it on social media
  • Enter your name in the Linky below
That's it!! I will select winners in one month, October 21. I will ship anywhere in the world :)

I have a few posts scheduled while I'm away. I'll stop in to see you all when I get back!! Have a wonderful last few days of September/first of October!! I'll miss you!! Big hugs :)

I hope you have a wonderful vacation. I love hummingbirds, they are so entertaining.

Donna Ellis said...

Love your hummingbird photos, Lisa! Yours are a different color than ours, and ours tend not to play well together, so at most, there will be two hummers at a time on our feeder. After the hurricane, most of my flowers were gone, so the hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies did not have much to munch on. We quickly put our feeder back out. Fortunately, it only took 3 days for many of my flowers to begin blooming again! Hope you enjoy a great vacation. I am leaving a much dreaded copy-and-paste phrase on my friends' blogs. Trying to get back into the groove of normal, everyday life. The recent events in Florida caused circumstances which triggered exacerbations of my diseases. Hoping that my hands heal, and strength returns soon - the rest of it can be coped with easily enough. Thanks for understanding my inability to accomplish very much - maybe in October? love and hugs, de

Awesome video. I love watching the hummingbirds. We have some feeders on our porch and can see them all the time. The colors are beautiful. I know your photo probably doesn't do the color justice. I hope you have an awesome vacation and relaxing one. Thanks for the thought of a giveaway. This is wonderful.. If only I could create your awesome style of cards. Hugs and hope you had a blessed trip

I love your beautiful photos of the hummers, Lisa. As I am new in the blogosphere, I do not know how to pop the picture on my slide bar, so I chose not to add my name in the Linky. I will be better with the blog potentials in the future, but right now I do not know what to do. But, never mind, I am happy that you are my friend. So, get rest and have a great time. Enjoy! Kisses, my friend.

Mia said...

I added my name to the linky, my friend. Hugs and I wish you a great day!

Mia said...

Lisa, I am very happy! I DID IT! I popped up your picture on my slidebar! Wow! It was my first time!!!! Yeah!!!!!!

MaryH said...

Enjoyed these splendid pics of the jewel like hummers. Their feathers really sparkle. Yours look just a bit different from the ones we see, and we get some of the ruby throats too. We have to hang our feeders out of sight of the other, as our hummers are extremely territorial and get feisty if another bird seems to want a sip. Enjoyed seeing these, and just added your lovely candy to my sidebar! TFS and the chance to win

Marjeta said...

Hope you will enjoy on your holliday. Video is fantastic. Thanks for chance to win.
