Team Captain, Roberta with Co-Captain Karen

Monday, July 5, 2010



Due to some contributors having problems submitting the online forms on the Susan G Komen site, the deadline has been extended to noon on Monday, July 5th.

For a sneek peek at the next fabulous giveaway (which begins July 5th at noon PDT), click here.

I suck at fund razing. I have a goal of raising $3000 for my breast cancer walk, but so far, I'm almost $2500 behind.

So I had an idea.

As a special thank-you-for-donating gift, each cat or person who makes a $5 donation this week will be entered in a drawing for a fabulous prize.

That's right. Between now and Monday (7/5), I'm offering my readers and friends the exclusive opportunity to win a custom pet portrait (examples above) created by me. It can be a cat portrait or a dog portrait and yeah, I can probably do ferrets, buns and rodentia as well. (I've had many good opportunities lately to study rodentia, thanks to Tripper.)


Size: 6-in. X 6 in. X 1-1/2-in.
Substrate: 10-oz natural cotton duck stretched canvas on heavy duty frame.
Profile: Gallery profile (wrapped and painted sides)
Medium: Mixed media. Acrylic base (Golden acrylics) adorned with beads and ephemera as appropriate.
Finish: Winner's choice of satin or gloss finish.
Description: Mixed media portrait that combines classic portraiture with collage and other mixed media. One pet per portrait.
Upgrade: After you win, if you'd like to donate an additional $25, you can upgrade to a 8" X 8" portrait featuring up to two pets.

Here's how you can enter for your chance to win:
  • Go to the my Susan G Komen donation page, and donate $5 or more. More is better, but $5 is great. For each $5 you donate, you'll get an entry in the prize drawing. For every $25 you donate, you get an extra entry (6 instead of 5) as a bonus.
  • Entry deadline: noon PDT on Monday 5 JULY.
  • Winners will be announced Monday afternoon, along with a new giveaway.
  • Having trouble donating online? Click here for a form you can mail in. (Then email me [karen **AT** catster **DOT** com] with your donation amount so I can get you entered in the drawing.)

Your donation goes directly to Susan G Komen, and is eligible for a tax deduction.

Money's tight? You can spread your payments out over four months.

The winner will also get
their very own Flat Skeezix,
with a pawtograph on the back!

So what are you waiting for? Hock up $5 like a hairball for your chance to win!

Thank you.
