HEY hey May Giveaway Day!

As I mentioned before Sew Mama Sew is hosting May Giveaway Day.
A day for creatives to meet through these crazy webs and give away work!
(Check out the link in the post below to view a list of all the blogs involved waiting to give away for the small price of a comment)

For giveaway day I will be illustrating, designing, printing and shipping 3 greeting cards. The specific card depends on you. I enjoy designing with the recipient in mind. The illustration and message should be intentional and about them.

After the winners are chosen I will ask for a funny story or some characteristics that you love about the person you would like to send some care to. I will take your help and illustrate and compose a card according to the theme you choose, send it your way and you have some love to pass in the form of nice looking card stock.

Here is an example of a thoughtful card from a husband to his wife. He complained of not being good with words, "It just doesn't come out right" But he later discovered, his honest words were the best kind to hear.



I'm so excited to tailor some cards for you. To qualify for the giveaway, simply post a comment below telling me why you want to give this card to whomever you want to give it to!

Happy giveaway day and better weather day!

Thanks for such a unique giveaway! I was going to say that I would love to give my friend a card to commemerate her pregnancy after a loss. I also love james and bess's comment about custom cards to frame for my kids! Such a great idea!

Jacqueline said...

I would love to have some of your cards. They are very unique! I would send one to my foster partens who have helped me through some difficult times (and whom I seldome tell I love) . One to my brother and sister-in-law who are new partens. And one to my husband to tell him I love him for always being there.

Dani said...

How very creative you are. That is so true that sometimes we dont know the right words.

And I have to agree with Bess, cards to tell my kids how very much I love them and am proud of them are always nice

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

What a very unique giveaway! Thanks for entering me :-)

dayda said...

I would like to send some love to my auntie. We are very close and sometimes I feel I'm not expressing my love and care for her the way she deserves to know it.
Hugs,
Diana

ItsMeBeth said...

Love the cards. I would love a card for my best friend. We have been through so much a lot of rough times, just as plenty of laughs if not more. She has been the greatest friend and anyone who she meets she fills with joy. She has such a bright and sunny disposition, plus we are both studying to become doctors and were doing it together. Id like to thank her for being here for me for so long .

Cami said...

I would love to give this card to my boyfriend. We were in a long-distance relationship for a long time, and I always wrote to him a lot. Now we are living together, which is wonderful, but it means I don't write to him anymore. I would love to surprise him with another love letter.

I just graduated from college yesterday. I would love to win these so I can mail them to a few of my housemates who I won't be seeing for a long time. One is moving to England another to Korea and another to Maine. I'd love to have personal cards to let them know how much they mean to me and how much I miss them.

mamaTAVE said...

Life has been.... busy. Too busy. Much too much that needs my immediate attention. I'm afraid my husband has been the one to receive the least of my attention during these last few months. Things are slowing down and life is getting back to normal, but I want to remind him that he is always on my mind and in my heart.

Phoenix Peacock said...

oh my! What a thoughtful give away! I love love snail mail - both to give and to receive. It seems with this I'd win at both - I'd get the cards and then send them off too! Lovely

We just had a death in the family and some people are taking it harder than others, like me. I think they would like personal little cards like this.

From Snowflakes To Hotcakes said...

My husband is in the Army and when he deploys, I send him special cards that represent us while he's gone. I spend all sorts of time shopping for the perfect card, and this would be awesome! Thanks for the chance to win them! You're so creative!

The said...

I would love to give it to my husband. I love it when he randomly does something for me and do the same when I can.

What a neat idea! I love it! Such a difficult choice, because I love cards so much. But I would want to have a card for my friend Amy. We have been prayer partners for 5 years where we have prayed together once a week. Her support and encouragement to to seek God has helped me so much.

I love sending b-day cards, but for really special cards like these, I would probably want to use them for an important milestone or life event, such as a graduation, wedding, new baby, etc.

I lost touch with my best friend from elementary school for years and years. We finally found each other again last year, but I'm not particularly good at keeping in touch via traditional means, especially since I move so often.

Sara said...

I would love to have the cards to give to my husband on a difficult day.

mab said...

My hub and I are celebrating our 10th anniversary this year. I have to figure out what to get him that's thoughtful and special, but not too pricey. (We're in grad school -- there's no budget for pricey stuff!) We've always cared more about handmade and heartfelt gifts anyway. This would be stellar! Thanks for the chance to enter!
