my mommy can draw portrait giveaway

Giveaway # 7

Today's giveaway is a treasured keepsake worth $100! Tammy Wolfley of My Mommy Can Draw takes your favorite photograph and turns it into a beautiful hand-drawn portrait. Look how amazing she is--here's the photograph and the finished portrait:


So sweet! Tammy's drawings are sure to be cherished pieces. Portraits are enlarged to approximately 16" x 20" and are completed on acid free paper and sprayed with a protective fixative to prevent smearing. Tammy's favorite subjects are of children and families.

The winner of today's giveaway will get a one-person portrait by Tammy--a $100 value. Or, add more people to the picture for $40 each. This would make an amazing Mother's Day gift for someone special!

To enter, just leave us a comment telling us who you would have Tammy draw for you. Comments must be left by Wednesday, April 29 at 11:59pm PST to be eligible. Good luck!

I would have her draw my 7 month old son. It would be so cute to put in his room!

targgart said...

This would be a wonderful Mothers Day Gift for my most deserving mother-in-law. My husband and I were married in 2001, his brother married in 2007, and their little sister just married in 2008. The 6 of us kids truly act like siblings and the three of us who married in have always been treated like their own by the in-laws. My husband just got home mid-March from serving his second year long tour overseas with the US Army. Having to miss his little sisters wedding this past summer, professional photos of all us kids had never happened, since the youngest sibling lives across the country, but the newlyweds made the trip home to see my husband after his military deployment. We took advantage of us kids all being together and finally had photos taken just over a month ago. Grateful we did since their father very unexpectedly fell ill and passed away just a week later, at far too young of an age. We are thankful all us kids were here and the many memories we all have of their father. It has been a very long month; the safe return of our soldier and spending time with the newlyweds in from out of state, then turned into a stressful and difficult time dealing with the sudden loss of their father, all our family has come together to be their for our mother. We know it is our job to be there to help her thru this hard time that will go on for many years. She is the sweetest mother-in-law anyone could ask for and to give the gift of a sketched photo of her kids would truly mean so much to her right now, for her to know we are here for her today and always.
