A contest to have fun with over at Lincoln's Page

Hey friends...Lincoln is having a great contest so pop on over to his blog and check it out - he has extended the deadline until the 25th of March so you still have time.

Mom had her stitches out today and had the Ultra Sound done on her liver - now we just have to wait for the results.

Bonjour my furiends!

Remember last year I ran my first French Craze Contest ? Well, the pawticipants were all SO great and it was so much fun that I have decided to do another one this year!



It is quite simple and everyone can participate, dogs, cats … So if you want to enter my contest, and win the big prize, here's what you'll have to do:
  1. Pick ONE french word in the list below (randomly or just because you like it):

    Joie

    Tristesse

    Colère

    Envie

    Folie

    Paresse

    Amitié

    Amour

    Vacances

    Été

    L'hiver

    Jouet

    Mode

    Promenade

    Amis

    Mer

    Campagne

    Nourriture

    Livre

    Lunette

    Sommeil

    Ordinateur

    Eau

    (Reilly) We thought we would help you out and add the translations

    Joy

    SADNESS

    ANGER

    Envy

    MADNESS

    LAZINESS

    Friendship

    Love

    Holiday

    Summer/Summertime

    the winter

    Toy

    Mode

    Promenade/Walk

    Friends

    Sea Food

    Campaign

    food, nourishment; feeding

    book

    Monocular

    Sleep

    Computer

    Water


  1. Find out what is the meaning of the word you picked (you can look on the internet, or in a dictionary for exemple – or maybe ask your human if he knows the translation? )
    Or, you can choose you OWN word/topic that is not on the list, and then go and find the translation in French on the internet !

  2. Think about it, and then take a picture of yourself according to the word/topic you chose. Be creative!

  3. Write the word you're illustrating on the picture - in French! For example, if you chose the word « Lunette », then write the word « Lunette » on the picture (using an image editor for example).

  4. Send me your entry at lincolnthegreatdane@gmail.com. (and let me know you did by leaving me a comment – so I can check and make sure I've got everyone's picture).

There will be one big winner, but if you tell your friends about it and we get lots of participants than there might be more prizes which means more winners !!
And - every pawticipant will get his own postcard from France !

You have until the 11th of march midnight (French time) to send me your picture ! I'll randomly pick the winner(s) and I'll post all the pictures here on my blog !

I can't wait to see what you will all come up with !

Hey mom, you had some stitches out? I seem to have missed a lot of things ever since my last visit.

Well, it's always great to hear when friends get better.

Good luck on the contest. I'm really not a French person but I did drop by Lincoln's blog.

Huggies and Cheese,

Haopee
