Lucky Elephant Contest April ’11

Ready to win BIG???

I am sooo excited for this month’s Lucky Elephant Contest!!! You have probably been waiting already and I apologize for the little delay, but the lucky elephant was out these past couple of weeks. Bead shopping… – aka vacation in the sun with bead shopping on the side (wink, wink). A perfect combination (for me anyway)… Batteries re-charged, soul sun-infused & happy AND a suitcase full of fabulous beads and findings. Ready to get into contest-swing again!

With the temperature climbing steadily and the sun out a lot more, it’s time to lighten up our wardrobe and add a few splashes of color to it. With a little luck, a lot of color, actually… Here’s what you might call your own in a few weeks:

A Sundance triple GOOD LUCK ELEPHANT leather wrap bracelet (brown leather with faceted crystal, turquoise, coral, sterling silver beads, Jade & natural stone). A $85 value!!!!!

How to win? Well, it’s a BIG prize, so I’m gonna make you work a little harder this time… 😉 What you need to do:

1. Leave a comment right here

2. Join me on Facebook and let me know you did.

3. Tweet about it (copy the URL of this post and add @t_luckyelephant so I know you did)

4. Share the link on your Facebook page.

You don’t have to do it all, but the more you do, the greater your chances… You have time until May 13th to collect “spreading points” – that’s when the contest ends.

Wishing you all luck and am so looking forward to reading what you have to say…
