It's A Giveaway!


Today's giveaway is sponsored by Casey Vinke of Mrs.C.M.Vinke. Casey has been crafting for about 8 years and loves to make all things paper including scrapbooks, mini books, embellishments and cards. She's been selling her creations on Etsy for about a year now and loves it although she feels like a small fish in a big pond!

Lately Casey's been obsessed with peacocks and lucky for us she created a set of peacock feather cards just for this giveaway! The set contains five blank cards and matching self sealing envelopes perfect for any occasion. She used an off white speckled card stock, stamped it with a peacock feather and then embellished them with some beautiful fun jewels. The inside of the cards are lined with a matching blue card stock.

To win this set of cards here's what you need to do: Visit Casey's shop and select your favorite item. Once you've done that come back and leave a comment letting her know what that item is and what your favorite occasion or holiday is to give hand made cards. Please make sure your comment contains the answer to both of those questions. Then if you'd like to get a second entry visit her Facebook Fan Page, become a fan and leave a comment letting her know that you'd like to enter again. The winner will be chosen on July 7, 2010 and announced in the comment section below. Please be sure she has a way to contact you.

Have fun visiting her shop and please tell all of your friends about her giveaway. Have a great day everybody, good luck and thanks for stopping by.

Of course the peacock feather cards caught my attention first to enter this giveaway. I would use these to basically just let dear people know I am thinking about them. I love to send cards just like that, not only on birthdays or mothers´days.

But looking around more on your site, I also found this ....Safe Travels Greeting Card. My sister is just about to go on a longer stay away from home (UK and then Australia), so this traveller card would be very nice for her.

I like the 'Safe Travels' card- the astronauts are too cute!

And, I most commonly use handmade cards when writing thank you notes and sending presents in the mail. I think it adds an extra little touch :)
