A Crafty Arab's first blog giveaway

I'm participating in the One World One Heart.

From Lisa's website:
One World One Heart is a worldwide event for bloggers only. It gives all those who blog a chance to meet and mingle and form connections with those they may not have otherwise met from all over the world. In the past 4 years this event has grown to over 1,000 participants with lasting friendships (and even one love connection) formed along the way. Think of it as a GIGANTIC open house allowing you to travel without ever leaving your home........going from blog to blog(in various countries) seeing the wonder each one has created and meeting all the fabulous people behind those blogs. As a bonus each blogger participant will offer up a "door prize or prizes"....just for dropping by, saying hello and seeing their world. It's really that easy.

So, as part of this event, I'll be giving away one of my Hello cards in Arabic. This is a new experience for me, I've never done a blog giveaway, so please comment on this post and I'll pick a winner on Feb 17th.

Your cards are beautiful! I noticed it said you were in the US. Where are you from originally (or if you were born in the US, where did you learn to write/speak Arabic?) I do calligraphy (though not for a long time now...toddlers and ink don't mix). I'm fascinated by the different letter styles around the world.
