It's A Giveaway!

Hello my friends! Hope your week is going just as you planned! My week thus far I must say has been a good one, very productive. :o) Well in celebrating the reopening of my little Etsy Shop I thought I would have a giveaway! But first let me tell you a little of just how this little shop has gone! I originally opened the shop September 2007 and soon after my dear sweet mother became ill and it became so hard to keep up with shop details. Well in July I officially reopened! I sure hope when time permits you all take a look and tell me what you think!

A few weeks ago I received a very sweet email from Jackie Fleckenstein, many of you know her as the very sweet firefly of the beautiful blog 'I Live On A Farm'. She is a wonderful writer, artist, crafter. Her beautiful art work can be found in galleries throughout the country. Upon visiting my Etsy Shop she ask if she could do a segment in her 'A few of my favorite things' section in her newsletter about the shop as well as on her blog! Do drop by and read her kind words on Tea Time and Roses. I tell you my friends, I was completely lost for words. I found that to be a beautiful complement coming from an accomplished artist such as herself. If you have not visited firefly and her lovely blog please do, and I must tell you, you are in for a real treat! :o) I am so honored and delighted that she enjoyed my little Etsy Shop.....thank you so much firefly.

As you all know I just love Autumn, I call it the quiet season and so beautiful with all its colorways. I thought this Autumn maple leaf note card and tag set would be a perfect little giveaway! It is a set of eight blank note cards, each card is simply stamped with a sweet little maple leaf with a hint of Autumn color and along with it comes six little bird tags and six sweet vine tags! I so enjoyed making these! By the way, I will be sending extra cotton twine and some pretty buttons too! The cards measure 4.25 x 5.5 and will come with eight soft ivory colored envelopes!

As I was at work stamping these, I thought how I so wish I could give a set to each and everyone of you. So I decided to have a second place winner! That lovely person will receive a set of six maple leaf note cards! All you have to do is comment on this post! First time visitors are also welcome! I will announce the winners Tuesday September 2, the day after labor day! Thanks so much!

Blessing are like hugs from God to let you know how much He loves you.
Counting blessings is like hugging God back.

Hi Beverly,

What delightful cards and so perfect for Autumn, which seems to be arriving here in southern Ontario. I noticed only last week that the acorns are falling off the trees and the maples are starting to change colour.

Thanks for dropping by to tell me about your giveaway and for your kind comments. Actually, you caught me as I was trying to sneak a quick post out in blogland without being noticed ~ I am still on a blogging break because we go on vacation next week, but will return properly after our Kleinburg show.

Enjoy your weekend.

Renna said...

Your creations are positively GORGEOUS! You make the things my inner crafter longs to create, but isn't quite talented enough to do. ;-Þ

I actually discovered your blog recently through that "I Live on a Farm" post to which you referred. I've never seen her reference other crafter's blogs before, so I knew your's was bound to be special, and it is.

Renna said...

PS-Did your mom recover? :-o

Judy Hartman said...

I am going right now to check out the link to you on 'Life on a Farm'!

Beverly, your shop is filled with so many wonderful things! I agree that fall is such a sweet season. Tomorrow I will be getting out my pumpkin collection and working on a new front door arrangement.

I hope you are still taking names! Those papercrafts are GORGEOUS. I came over from Living the Life...

Deon said...

Your aesthetic shows through in all your work. It's nice to see your shop back up & running. Good luck!

Nan said...

I love how you call it the "quiet season." That is just perfect. Just what we all need after the busy, noisy, sunny summer. Whew! is all I can say. I know it isn't technically fall yet, but Labor Day weekend says, goodbye summer as far as I'm concerned. Your notecards are so subtle, so perfect a reminder of the season.

Doug and Terrye said...

What a beautiful website, I just happened to stumble across here tonight and am delighted!

Beverly,
Congratulations on re-opening your Etsy shop...and YIPPEE for all of us who can now take advantage of your beauties.

I love that you call Autumn the "quiet" season...I never thought of it in those words...but you are so right...it is a season that to me gives much hope.

I'm heading off to visit Firefly and see what kind of goodness she has to share.

OH! and I love your note cards with the Autumn leaves and the sweet bird tags...so simple and elegant...right down my alley!

Blessings...
Teresa

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...
