Just Because You’re You.

Did you know that I make notecards, announcements, and invitations? I’ve done it for years, ever since my life became way too busy for scrapbooking. I love crafting cards out of paper* and cool embellishments: it’s relaxing for me.

(Well, except when I decide to make way more than I need “since I’ll be doing it anyway”…that’s just ridiculous. When will I learn???)

I’ve done baby announcements, save the date cards, engagement and graduation party invites, and of course, birthday invitations. I love stretching myself creatively to come up with something that surprises people.

A few weeks ago, I made some holiday notecards (blank inside) to sell at the salon. I made, of course, waaaaaay too many. Today I said to myself, “Self, what are you going to do with these extra cards??”

I answered, “Well, Self, first of all, you look fabulous. Secondly, I think you should do a just-for-fun giveaway on Suburban Scrawl!”

Then I stopped talking to myself long enough to pat myself on the back for such a great idea, and took pictures of the cards to show you. I made three different varieties, and they’re great for giving with a gift you deliver personally, like to the neighbors or a teacher. You can also mail them: I’m sending envelopes too! Here they are:

So here’s the deal. I am going to give away six 4-packs of these cards, two of each kind. There will be six winners (well, you’re all already winners, but you know what I mean.), unless I get less than six comments. In that case, by the way, I will lock myself in my bedroom and force myself to watch old Westerns until New Year’s.

All you need to do, if you’re interested, is leave me a comment. THAT’S IT. I’m not asking you to tweet this, Facebook it, call your mom about it, blog about it, or hire a skywriter for it**. By leaving a comment, you are telling me that you are interested in receiving a pack of four notecards if your name is drawn, and that you’re willing to give me your mailing address because I certainly cannot deliver them if you don’t live in my area. If I don’t already have your email address, please make sure you leave it in the comment. And guess what? I WILL send to Canada, Germany, or any other country!

You’ve got until this Saturday, December 4 at 11:59 p.m. to enter. (Quick, I know, but I want to get these to you so you can use them!) I’ll do the drawing for the six winners in a vlog on Sunday or Monday.

Comment away, and good luck!

    I totally want some! I still have a few left of the ones you made me two years ago and I frickin love them. I love that if I need a card quick I can go into that cupboard and gran one. The gold S on it still brings a wee smile to my face. Pick me, pick me!

    I remember getting a snazzy pack of cards that you made at Blogher and I used them to give letters to my bridesmaids the day before my wedding last year! I would love another set to pass along! 🙂

    Do you even KNOW what an overachiever you are?


  • Michelle December 3, 2010, 2:22 am

    You already know I think they're awesome. And you know I do stamping, too, right? 😉

    How did the sale at the salon go btw? I never did ask you – oops. I know it was a first time doing it.

    I've already seen your handiwork (thanks again, btw!) and I can personally vouch for the level of craftsmanship that goes into your product! I could, like, be your spokeschica! 🙂 Would love to win some of those – they're very cute! (And I just might tell my Mom anyway!)
