MPS NSD Challenge #10 - "May Day" and My Very First Give-Away!!

This is my final submission in the Pink Stamper National Scrapbook Day Challenge. I created this sweet little card gift box by following a tutorial here. I saw something similar at a make and take display recently and have been searching for a solution ever since.  Here is what I came up with:






I also made a set of 6 matching cards to go inside. When you close it, you simply tie it shut with the attached satin ribbon. The flowers were made with the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  I think it is a nifty sort of gift giving idea. With that thought in mind, I have decided to do just that!




I am going to give this card set away!

It will include the box with embellishment, 6 matching cards as shown here, with envelopes. I am also going to add to this an assortment of my handmade flowers. It's nothing too big, but there was love and care taken into making these items and I am happy to share. The only requirements I have for a chance to win are the following:

  1. Become a follower of this blog by clicking on the google friend follower in the left column of this page.
  2. Leave a comment on this post specifying you would like to be considered in the giveaway, and tell me what your favorite flowers are.
  3. Share a link to my giveaway on your blog, message board or social networking site, so others can be made aware of it too. Feel free to use any of the images in this post on your link.

I will pick a winner using a random generator on June 1st. 

Also, it is very important that you leave a way for me to contact you, should you be chosen.  An email address or blog address would be ideal!  ~thanks!

Thank you for visiting my blog. The effort you took to come here today has really brightened my day. I love being creative and I especially love sharing what I love with others who appreciate it too.

I came from Capadia's too. Love your flowers and that cute note card holder. I think I'm wishy washy because my favorite floweriswhichever one I'm sniffing or looking at at the moment. If I had to pick one I guess it would be the Iris. I'm a follower.

Such a lovely card set. I just became a follower. So glad I found this site (saw the link on Capadia's site). Such a nice give away. thanks for the chance. To ask a master gardener what their favorite flower is can be quite dangerous. We are all plant collectors. I tend to be partial to iris and daylillies but I have never met a flower that I dislike.

Mariam Satchell said...

hi Shelley!!! So beautiful!!! What an awesome giveaway. You are so generous!!!!!

I LOVE calla lilies and lily of the valley...... Elegant and simple, classic.... The fragrance is divine!!!!

Will add your giveaway info on my blog!
