I won a giveaway!


 Last week Ann Paws ran a giveaway on her blog, Pawsitively Pets.

The prize was a portrait of your pet! How cool and personal is that? - I think it's a great prize because anyone who has a pet would love that! 

The custom portrait of your pet will be drawn by a great artist called Carla Smale. Her artwork is truly amazing! Some of her artwork is below: If you want to have a look at her artwork, you can visit her etsy store or her website.

There were loads of entries and I am always really unlucky, so I definitely did not expect to win! When I found out I was so excited!! :D

I got in contact with Carla, and she said she would prefer a head shot as it is only a small portrait, and doing her whole body on that would probably prove quite tricky!

So I had a look, and this is the picture I came up with:

What do you think? Do you think that's a nice photo, or do you think I should chose another one like the one below?

I just can't decide and I want to make sure I chose the perfect photo! - So please tell me what you think so I can email Carla and tell her which photo I have chosen!
Thank you so much to Ann and Carla!! I can't wait to receive my prize and I love Ann's blog - she has such great posts (one every day) and the giveaway was great. :)

If you don't already read Ann's blog, be sure to check it out! You won't regret it!

  1. Yay! Congratulations again and thanks so much for all the kind words! I really appreciate it! I think I like the first photo best because it's lighter and you can see her cute little ears better. Very excited to see the finished product!

    1. Thank you!! I emailed Carla yesterday so fingers crossed it should be done soon! :D I choose the first picture, becuase, like you said, you can see her better.
      Thank you!
