Woven Strands and StuckInBooks are combining the 

Characters drawing contest
+ Creatures drawing contest
Characters/Creatures drawing contest

As part of the 400 hours to Four Hundred Days blog tour, we have been running two drawing contests.  One was for Characters on Woven Strands and one was for Creatures on StuckInBooks.

 We are combining the contests and the prizes.   
What does this mean to you? 

Do you like to draw book characters or creatures?

Then use the descriptions below to draw a character or a creature from this series. 

What can you win? (Prizes are combined)

First place prize package: $50 iTune Gift Card and a SIGNED copy of Four Hundred Days.
Second place prize: A Signed copy of Darkest Mercy by Melissa Marr AND a Signed copy of Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl.

So instead of entering both contests, you only have to enter one on StuckInBooks.  There will be one first place winner and one second place winner.  There will need to be a minimum of 5 entries in order for prizes to be awarded.

Additionally, we have extended the time limit until July 31st.
