"Ink"spiration Everywhere!


So I've been getting in the creative mood again which is a great thing. I find myself getting inspired by just about everything in my surroundings. Here is my latest example... First I bought this cute little purse from Sage Saks, then I saw these gorgeous pillows in a magazine, voila my new Old World Damask note cards were born.

I also forgot to mention I was a child in the 1970's and this was very popular velvet wallpaper, in fact my childhood home had it plastered in just about every room! looked great with the shag carpet.



I'm feeling generous and have not done a FREE Lunch giveaway in a while.
From now until Monday February 2nd
post here telling me how you would use these lovely cards.
I will then have my trusty 3 year old assistant select a name at random to win a set.
Winner will be posted on Tuesday.
GOOD LUCK!

Soooo cute! I would keep these on hand for spur of the moment cards. A quick thank you or just because card. Love the pattern.

lol ;) I STILL have velvet damask wall paper in my house!! hehee, I think it's kind of cool and retro!

Those are great cards! I would write letters to my friends over seas and send them a surprise gift :) I think that would make they're day. I know I love receiving unexpected packages in the mail!

We had that wallpaper too!! In goldish colors, with a greenish shag rug. My word that was ugly - though all the rage then.
I would use the cards as Thank-you card when someone bought something from my shop or traded items with me. They are wonderful cards!

My 90 year old Grandmother does not like to talk on the phone much. She does love to receive mail. I would write letters to her on your beautiful cards. =)

Ooh, so very lovely! I think these would make great invitations for a spring garden party. I'm thinking about doing one for all my girlfriends and our moms!

Great design... I've been thinking back about that lovely bathroom wallpaper we had when I was a child as well... Looked just like this but red with black design - it was gorgeous. Thanks for stirring up the memory!

Love love love them!
I just got the update on facebook, but think that I am too late... I figured I would post anyway ;)
I would use them as the emergency card, when I have forgotten to grab a birthday, sympathy, or congrats card from Target!
