Bloggy Giveaway Carnival -- Personalized Note Cards

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button



It's Bloggy Giveaway time! In honor of my new professional endeavor, I am giving away a set of classic hand-lettered personalized stationery -- the gift of calligraphy. Every party hostess needs a nice set of thank-you notes!



What you can win:

  • 10 Personalized Large Blank Note Cards and 10 Envelopes (white), oversized (6.5 by 5 inches) for those times when a quick note really becomes more like a short letter.

  • Choice of Blackletter script (shown) or Italic (picture coming soon), with either one initial, three initials or a first name.


  • To enter, all you have to do is leave one comment on this post telling me who you would want to write using your new stationery! The impersonal random.org will pick the winning comment. Comments will close Friday, April 25th, at midnight Saturday, April 26th, at 8am EST. I will post the winner here on Saturday morning after the random number generator does its work!

    Go check out the rest of the prizes offered by bloggers at the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival!

    Comments are now closed. Thanks to all for entering!

    I have a dear aunt who sends tons of cards...I would love to drop her a note on this personalized stationery, bc I know she sends far more personal cards than she ever receives! thanks for the entry!

    stephanie said...

    How cool! Well, I would write one of my good friends who lives in Wisconsin ... far far away from me. :)

    The first person I would write to is my cousin's wife. I've been meaning to write to her all week. If I win, and have already written to her by then, my aunt's birthday is in a month. She'll get the first note! Wonderful giveaway - thank you!

    Bonita said...

    I like to drop encouraging notes in the mail to friends, family, and even acquaintances. Everybody appreciates a little pick-me-up now and then. That's what I would do with those very lovely cards!

    pinkgingham said...

    These would be so fun to have! I would use them for Thank You notes!! Thanks for the fun giveaway!

    Becca Mae said...

    I would write my grandmother because she loves getting letters. I like to pick out cute stationary I know she will enjoy.

    MoziEsmé said...

    Very cool notecards - I like the personal touch!

    I would leave them with all the people we will be visiting/staying with on our trip through the US next month.

    (And yes, I am a US resident part of the time.)

    I would love these for writing special notes to friends and family that do not live close by.

    Jenny B. said...

    I use blank note cards for every card occasion. Sometimes I write poetry or quotes or witty verse, depending on the occasion and the recipient.

    Julie D said...

    Oh...am I first?!?!?! Cool! I would write to my mom and sisters (who I just got to see this weekend!)

    Karla said...

    How lovely! I'd probably write my mother first... just so she could see my pretty new note cards!

    Kimberly said...

    How beautiful!!!! I think I would write a note to my cousin whom I haven't seen in about three years and to my favorite aunt whom I haven't seen in about 10+ years. I MISS THEM SO MUCH!!!

    I can be reached at the URL attached to my name. THANKS!!!

    I'd write to friends and family.

    Kait said...

    My best friend! I'm moving another two hours way soon (we already live two hours apart), so I have a feeling I'm going to be sending her lots of cards.

    Andrea said...

    Hmmm..I'd probably write a note or two to my hubby and a few to some of my friends!

    leigh said...

    because i like fun cards. :)

    dh said...

    I would write to my family. Ten wouldn't cover them all, but it would be a start.

    Nicol said...

    Wow, I'm first. That's a first! hehe

    I would love to write to the Queen of England..maybe she'll reply and let me see the family jewels.

    But I would probably use them to write to my penpals. I have been penpalling for 17 years. Or maybe thank the lady down the street who gave me a bunch of plant starts from her garden!

    bethany said...

    I would write a thank you card to my mother! :) Thanks!

    ispeakbeanish said...

    I'd send a note to my friend in Oklahoma. We've known each other for 29 years now, and I sure do miss being able to see her.

    Julie D said...

    I would love to have a nice set of cards. Maybe it would encourage me to write an old fashioned letter.

    M.A. said...

    I would write to my sorority sisters! You see, I often am writing them little notes to drop in their campus mailboxes to make their day a little brighter. New stationary would definitely help! This is beautiful!

    Don and Lisa Osborn said...

    If I win, I would write several people in my church who are suffering from cancer and other long-term illnesses.

    Thanks for the chance to win.

    Julie and Ben said...

    I would write to an old college roommate!!

    seven said...

    I would write to my sister-in-law. They live about 3 hours away, and they were going to move back here, but my brother decided to go to seminary, so they're actually moving to a place thats' 5 hours from here. She's my best friend, so I'd use them to keep in touch with her.

    Playful Professional said...

    I would take these cards with me and write a thank you note anytime a friend invites me or over or I feel like thanking someone for anything. Thanks!

    mrscjallen said...

    What beautiful writing! I'm wishing you all the luck on your new endeavor.

    And if I were to win, I'd use these beautiful personalized cards to write a 'short note' to the ladies in my Bible study or my family out of state. Although I will admit, it would take me a minute to part with it and I may just save one for me. :o)

    sara l. said...

    I really like these...What a talent you have! I would like to write a note to a dear friend who lost her husband last week! Thanks for such a generous giveaway!

    I write people all the time on my stationary. The highest on my list are my only uncle, 1st cousin once removed, and good friend who lives across the US from me.

    CanCan said...

    During recent family crisis, so many friends did very kind things for my family. I would definitely use them to write thank you notes.

    ticole96 said...

    Cards are nice... I would write to my friend in NY since I don't get to see her much!

    frugallm said...

    I would be writing to everyone in my address book just to show off my new stationary! Just kidding! I do write a lot of Thank you notes though!

    jessleigh said...

    I love calligraphy! I wish I could do it, but I have a shaky hand so it always turns out bad.
    I write to a friend who lives in another state quite often.
    I would also use them to write thank you notes to students who give me gifts and letters.

    I would use these cards for thank you notes. They are so classic and beautiful.

    Smellyann said...

    I would write to our family members, probably, since it seems I am always sending them letters and thank-you notes for gifts to our 3 children. I would also write thank-yous for the people who donate to our charity. Thanks and please enter mine, too!

    linda said...

    I've got a few thank you notes to write for some "good mail" I've received lately.

    I'd also send a note to my daughter who is away at college. Everyone loves getting mail and especially on beautiful note cards like yours!

    One person I'd write to with them is my high school friend, Elizabeth. We enjoy writing to each other, keeping up on each other's lives.

    robin said...

    I write notes all the time, It probably would be someone from church that was having a hard time, just a note of encouragement...

    Neen said...

    I love sending my on line friends snail mail too. Its so much more personal than just an e-mail plus they love getting something in their mailbox that is not a bill or junk mail.

    Elena said...

    Beautiful calligraphy! I usually use my note cards for people from church who need some special encouragement or congratulations. But the first one would go to you as a thank you. :) Thanks for the contest!

    Jinxy & Me said...

    I would love to use them to write thank you notes or just "keeping in touch" notes. Great prize! Thanks for the giveaway!

    A friend of mine just sent delicious cookies from Australia and I would love to send her a hand written thank you.

    Megret said...

    A good friend two hours away who I don't see as often as I wish I did...but who agrees with me that handwritten correspondence is the most heartfelt. Thanks!

    Jamie Lyn said...

    Well, since ALL my quick notes turn in to short letters, this would be ideal for writing those special people who appreciate such things: my grandmother, my husband's aunt, and YOU! ;)
