Le Mysterieux Carnival is here, come on in!

Winners for my Halloween card giveaway are:

Isabelle Thornton of "Le Chateau des Fleurs"

Please contact me at, as soon as possible to give me your address and I can send off your cards to you promptly.  Congratulations, and thank you very much for stopping by.

Welcome to ImagiMeri's Creations presentation on "Le Mysterieux Carnival.  Above is your silver ticket to gain admission.  I'm linked up with the lovely ladies at "Le Mysterieux Carnival" and I highly encourage you to visit all the other participants to see their presentations, you won't be disappointed.


I've created a quick video for you to see my carnival booth, and I have music available to play with the video, so please have your speakers on while watching.  First hit the play button for the music and then hit the play button for the video, this way you get the full enjoyment as the video is timed to the music.  The song and video will play only once and then stop, so you'll have to start the music, again, each time you want to listen to it with the video.  You may also expand the video to full screen by clicking the option on the bottom of the video bar to the farthest right (looks like 4 corner brackets).  If you do choose to watch in full screen, just remember to hit "Esc" when it's done to take you back to regular screen.

I am having a drawing from all comments left on this post for Saturday, and two lucky winners will receive a packet of custom, handmade Halloween cards, including envelopes, in time for you to be able to use them this year (depending on where you live).

On Sunday, the 7th of October, I will choose two winners using a random number app, and once contact has been made and addresses received I will send them out promptly.  Please make sure I have a way of contacting you, should you win.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the video and music. Please don't forget to visit all the other participants, as quite a few of them are having giveaways, too.

Hi, Meri. I wasn't able to watch the video...I was informed that it was "private." Maybe it's just me. I would really like to see it...the ticket was fantastique and intriquing. =D

Oh I have SO much to say my friend! First off, the carnival! Oh my wowzers! I cannot WAIT to see this little gem in person. I can only imagine the hours it took to create.

First Meri I want to Thank You for coming by for a Blog Visit and leaving such Inspirational Words. Yes, quite often the best of us comes out during the worst of time... and a bit of the worst of us too. *Winks* I've had my "Moments" dealing with the Insanity of it all sometimes. *LOL* I'm so glad that you stopped by so that I could discover your Lovely Blog and the Fab Giveaway just in time! My 'slow' computer doesn't do Videos very well so I Hope I'm able to see your Carnival one in it's entirety? I'll try... I LOVE Carnivals... the Atmosphere of them is always so Festive and brings the Child out in all of us. And who doesn't like to win those cheesy prizes given away at Carnivals!? *Smiles* I Love your Silver Admission Ticket for us too!

Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian
