Giveaway: Flapperdoodle Print

Ok, hang on to your seats people, I know you've seen the Flapperdoodle ladies around but if by some crazy chance you haven't, let me give you a little background.
A while ago, I had a guest feature on Design Lovely's Lovely Looks and at this time I mentioned my growing affinity for Flapperdoodle prints. Well, right after that feature, I received a little comment from the creator of these darling prints, Kate. Always having my reader's best interest in mind, I contacted her and after stumbling all over my words and proclaiming my love for her prints, Kate agreed to a special giveaway for Down and Out Chic readers. (You can thank me later). Kate is offering a special 11"x14" print (this size is not currently offered in her shop) for the winner's choice of illustration. You get to choose ANY print out of the Flapperdoodle shop! When you see the selection, I don't know how you'll choose. Seriously.
Here are a few pieces...there are so many more.
The Flapperdoodle characters are dramatic, feminine, cheeky, and silly. I want to be their friend.
Eloise frets about what to wear to Coney Island
Eloise and Ramona drinking lemonade
Eloise and Ramona, the flapper ballerinas
Eloise as Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch
To learn more about the characters Eloise, Ramona, Emma, and Clarissa, please check out Kate's Flapperdoodle blog.
One more thing- Kate was entered into a voting contest on Etsy for the "3 month old and under shop that shows the most promise." Please go vote for Kate and her fun characters. Seriously, it only takes a second...
So are you wondering how to enter? You can enter up to THREE times!
1) Check out the Flapperdoodle shop and tell me what you think. Do you have a favorite print? (1 entry)
2) Are you a follower of Down and Out Chic? If so, you automatically get a second entry but you have to leave a second comment and simply say, "I'm a follower!" (2nd entry)
3) Post this giveaway to your blog, Facebook, or Twitter and leave another comment telling me so. (3rd entry).

B and I are attending a wedding this weekend and then on Sunday we're going to Atlanta to see my brother and nephew for a few days! I'll be back to my normal routine next Wednesday but you should hear from me before then. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and good luck with the giveaway!

It's almost cruel forcing us to choose only ONE flapperdoodle! Goodness me, I want them ALL (lol) but after deep contemplation I've decided that my favorite print and the one I would love to win is "Eloise as Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch" YAY this is such a cool giveaway:)

I thought these looked familiar. That is so cool you got her to do a giveaway on your beautiful blog. My favorite is definitely Eloise time travels to 1963, but gets caught in the rain. So cute and I love the title and I love the rain. You know I am a follower. Number 24 to be exact. You have 463 followers! Maybe I should do one of these giveaways. :)

This is gearing me up for the new Sophie Kinsella Book, Twenties Girl!!! Eeek :)

My fave pic (and it was hard to choose among them all) is "Ramona Wears her new Cloche Hat". Its sophisticated, sexy and so fun! I love the nonchalant look she has with the long ciggy. A touch of Hepburn! Brillz

Did you ever see the Q&A I did with Kate? http://www.magchunk.com/2009/06/08/artist-kate-gabrielle/ I love her work.

My fave is "Eloise and Ramona prepare for a night on the town". It would be so cute in a dressing room or my walk-in closet :)

Sweeties!! I'm a follower - Ramona wears her new Cloche hat - that's my pick!!

Mercurie said...

Well, I've been a fan of Eloise and Ramona since Kate debuted them on Silents and Talkies. I guess it's for that reason that it's hard for me to pick a favourite. I would suppose if I had to, it would be Eloise on the Vespa (my faovurite era has always been Swinging London.

Vanessa said...

I love 'The flappers go to the moon.' Such a unique and cute theme!
