Winner Of Pastel Pet Portrait Give-A-Way

A BIG "Thank You" to everyone who entered my Pastel Pet Portrait Give-A-Way. All the names of entrants were put into a tub, the correct amount of times this morning and the winner was pulled out by "Connor" a 14 year old animal lover.

I decided to have two winners, one from the dogs that were entered, and one from the cats that were entered so here are the winners as pulled out by Connor:

Dog Winner: Martha & Bailey

Cat Winner: Brian

I will be emailing both winners to request clear head study photographs of their beloved pets in order for me to create their pastel portrait and will be requesting permission to add their photographs here on this post.
Thank you again to all who entered. Please look out for tomorrows post on "Genista Pawtraits" which will contain a Special Offer to everyone who entered my Give-A-Way.
Have a Lovely Day!

Warmest Wishes
