Birthday and Two Give-aways!

A sweet blogging friend/preacher's wife just recently had a birthday -and offered a give-away on that day on her blog. I thought that was a WONDERFUL idea...

And then just a few days later, I received an email offering a free music CD to give away on my blog... I was SO thrilled. So, I have saved this until today.

The duo is TAL and ACACIA. I encourage you to go to this site and you can hear their music - and even download three songs for free: www.talandacacia.com/freemusic

THEN - I am also giving a $10.00 starbucks card...

So... here is the deal:

You know how we bloggers all LOVE comments - and we LOVE our followers :)...

So, this is how you enter for the give-away. (five chances) You can enter one time or you can enter 5 times...

(1). Leave a comment. Tell me if you would rather have the CD or the Starbucks card...
(2). Tell me which song you like best.
(3). Add yourself to my list of followers (and if you already follow - say so - that counts too)
(4). Add my button to your side bar.
(5). Announce this giveaway on your blog for your readers to come and enter... (make sure that you tell me that you have done so...)

So, there - you can enter this giveaway 5 times...

Happy Birthday to me! - I want you to win a prize! I will announce the winners on Monday, August 3rd.

Thank you also for your patience with me as I am having a hard time being consistent with my blog lately. Surely I will be back on track soon.

Love to you all!

Happy birthday!!!! I would definitely go for the CD. My favorite song has to be something by Downhere or Hillsong or Bebo Norman. Or, there's 'Testify' and 'LifeSong' by Casting Crowns, both of which I've loved for years.

Glad to be visiting here. Have a wonderful day!

Happy birthday, DeeDee! What a sweet thing to do, giving gifts to others on your birthday! I would be happy with either choice. Hope you have a wonderful day, filled with many blessings!

Happy Birthday DeeDee. Hope you have a great one. Get Bro. Hal to take you to either Firebirds, Flemings, or Kobe's for dinner. Those are our favorite places to eat on special occasions.

I love the give aways. Great way to get people to leave comments. How do you do it?

I looked at the website with the CD and I like the Yahwey song, but I would prefer to have the Starbucks coffee gift card. Even though I can't have coffee right now, I can save it for a few more weeks when I can have it or give it to Bill.

I am already a follower and you are already on my sidebar, unless I have to put the picture of your blog and I am not quiet sure how to do that. Just let me know if that is the case.

I will also go back and add your giveaway to my post for today.

Happy Birthday again!!!

Blessings!

Happy Birthday to you, my sweet friend! I am a follower and I have your Tuesdays Together button on my blog. Does that count? I would prefer the CD...as I am not a coffee drinker!

Hope you have a glorious day! Much love to you...

I would pick Starbucks. Mainly because I love it and also becuase it doesn't fit into my budget often. =)

Thanks for the chance!

My favorite song at the moment is RemedyDrive's All Along. And I keep hearing Tal & Acacia's Clearview song on the radio and getting it stuck in my head, even though it's not my favorite song. =)

I would love to have the Star Bucks gift card. With the children out of school for the summer I sure could use a little escape to my local Star Bucks and enjoy a little piece and quiet.
