Sweet, Sweet Eve Dress Give Away!!!!

"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."
Matthew 25:40


   

Ok...just when I thought things could not get any sweeter, Erika at A Cup of Cold Water created this:

This beautiful shirt (that can also be made as a dress for little ones) is hand-made with an antique handkerchief for the top and matching fabrics for the bottom. I know, it is so cute that I wish I could win my own give away! She is offering to make two different kinds for this give away and they are both beyond beautiful!
Besides making breath-taking dresses she makes a ton of other mouth-wateringly adorable things...seriously, you know those people who are just gifted and everything they do seems to turn to gold? Erika has that touch!
Here are just a few of her other creations



and  if you are my mom or Doug's mom...close your eyes!!!!! These can hold Scripture cards or notes cards or anything cute in card-type thing (photos of Grandchildren??). What a cute way to announce a referral...


Ok...I don't want to give it all away, honestly, I am restraining myself :) But if you have little boys, nothing could be cuter...


More importantly...the reason Erika is sewing her heart out is this....


This is sweet Lulu soon to be Eve who the Give Away shirt is named after!

So let's come around this family and help get this little girlie home!!!!!!
In the process someone will win a priceless, one of a kind dress ( or shirt for a bigger kid)!

So how to your enter to win?

* Head back over to A Cup of Cold water again and scroll down through Erika's great creations (don't forget to check out her fabric options on the Flicker link on the side) . Come back and tell me which is your favorite creation!!! (1 Entry)!
* Become a follower of A Cup of Cold Water
* Leave a comment for Erika and her family...how about a favorite Scripture or quote to encourage them or to pass on to Eve when she is older? Then leave it here too because I love Scripture and quotes (1 Entry)!
* Because I remember what it was like to wait while you knew that your child was sick...also head over to Till God Brings Them Home and leave them a Scripture, or quote as well! ( 1 Entry)!

   Happy clicking and Praise God for soon to be one less orphan in this world!!!!!

Since I was SO blessed to win your last give-away, I will pass on entering this one, so someone else gets a better chance. But I just have to comment on how BEAUTIFUL her work is...what a talented 'designer' and SO creative! Some very blessed winner will surely enjoy their 'work of art'!! :)

God bless!

I like the ava dress, I like the pillowcase dresses--I should try my hand at something like this--but I'm not that cutsy creative and I know I would get frustrated and stop. So excited about their adoptive daughter!

I was looking for the perfect baby gift and I've found it! Erika's work is wonderfully playful and beautiful. I'm ordering several things...We're in our own China-child-wait and am thrilled that the perfect gift for my friend's daughter is also helping bring home Erika's perfect daughter! Really, who can pick a favorite??!

BTW, I follow Tami (from Reece's Rainbow) on Facebook. We've both adopted from Taiwan.

I also looked at her fabric. I love the almost vintage 1980 pink/blue diamonds.

The Ava dress with the purply/pink flowers is my favorite of that 'line'.

she does very pretty and unique items. Love the boys' shirt too.

I also love the burgundy Ava dress! It's so adorable.

Chelsey said...

I left the verses: Matthew 10: 29-31 Are not two sparrows sold for a small coin? Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father's knowledge. Even all the hairs of your head are counted. So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

I wanted to give this verse to them to remind them that their daughter is in God's hands even though she is not yet in their hands.

Chelsey said...

I left TGBTH the verse Psalm 139:13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.
as a reminder that God knit Jeremiah together and planned for their family to be his family so long ago...
