It's giveaway time... Botanical notecards

I've been doing the fantastic Blogging Your Way course run by Holly over at Decor8 and this giveaway is one of our pieces of homework (ahem... from a few weeks back!). These botanical notecards have been floating around for some time but the course gave me the impetus to finally get this project off the ground. And if you caught my guest post over on Enchanted Dream Weddings last week, you'll know how much I love a little handwritten note. In the coming months I plan to release several more designs, and whilst I have the Botanical range in three colourways today I'll have a few more to show you before the week is out.
The Botanical Range comes in Series I and II, each with four folded notecards, of different designs. To celebrate their release we will give away a full set of 8 notecards in one colourway.

How to enter:
Just leave a comment here about what you're thankful for and who you would send one of these cards to (click on comment on the bottom of the post - just a helping hand for all you non-commenters :-) Entries close next Monday the 11th of October, and we will send these out to any country. We'll be selling them in our Etsy shop as well. Please be sure to leave me an email as well.

Next colour coming up shortly!!

I'm thankful for life... for everything i have, for my family, friends... and for being part of an amazing community on line, always willing to support and help each other... I'm thankful for doing something that completes me, every single day and for being always happy...
I would probably send these cards to the most very important people in my life... in very unique, special situations!

Megan said...

Oh wow, these are stunning! I am so thankful for my wonderful family support and friends! I would probably send these cards to my 2 best friends who always send me the sweetest cards to send some love back their way!

Andrea said...

These are beautiful! I would have a hard time writing on them, because I would almost just want to frame them :) Howver, I'm so very thankful for my sisters & my mama for their support & love while I chase my dreams with two babies... they would definitely deserve to receive these in the mail!

helmetorheels said...

These are gorgeous! I'd send one to my older sister who did a lot of work for my mom before she passed away. And the rest I'd send to my sister to use. She and her family are displaced after their home flooded. So many people have reached out to help them it would be a lovely way to say thank you!

Woow the cards are gorgeouss! Would love to win these lovely cards! I'm so thankful first for my loving family and friends, and secondly for this blogging world where everyone is truly sweet enough and honest to share such inspirational finds rather than keeping it all to themselves. Seriously I could easily spend hours in this world and feel bliss :)

Kerry said...

Oh Kate these are incredible. You are such a talent!

Not only do I love these, but I am a true believer in handwritten notes! I've been waiting all day to tell someone what I came across last night, and I think you may appreciate it more than anyone! I found a handwritten note from my (late) Great-Grandmother written to my Mother dated 12 years ago. I recognized her handwriting immediately and the waterworks turned full blast. I could hear her words with her voice as I read along. Something that I haven't imagined in too long. That alone is something I'll always be thankful for.
I can name less than a handful of people who's handwriting is recognizable to me. I have a personal goal to make sure that my great grandchildren (one day!!) will recognize mine!
Thanks for listening ~ Sometimes you've just gotta share!!!
xoxo ~ Shelli

Wow, these are such beautiful cards. Gosh there's so much that I have to be thankful for. I think I would write a little love note to my other half who is my rock. There's something so beautiful and special about taking the time to sit down and write a note.

I love these colors! I am thankful for such a supportive, encouraging and loving group of friends and family!

I would give these notecards to a lovely bride from this past weekend :)

Naomi said...

Love the colors and these are fantastic, Kate! I love the design! I think I would write a hand written note to each of my Twitter Gals & Friends since we only get 140 characters to share the joys of life with them. I would love for them to receive a nice note card done by one of our own favorite gals. Truly these are stunning!

Eliza said...

What gorgeous artwork! I would send one to my beautiful Mummy to let her know that I appreciate eveything she does for me and for all the love and support she has shown me over the years and that without her, I wouldn't be the person I am today. I would also send one to my sister who lives overseas and I haven't seen in I can't even remember how many years...maybe that would influence her to come home :)
I would also send one to my brother and his girlfriend who have just moved to Canada....oh and all the other people I love and miss overseas! :)

MissCheffie said...

Kate, those are absolutely stunning! I'm thankful to God, to have give me such an amazing family, for finding my soulmate. I'm also thankful and would probably used those stunning cards to write to my twitter friends, like @moden_bride and @brancoprata that have been, without even realising, supporting me and helping so much during this year.
Love, Aline

Annaliesse said...

Hi Kate,

Wow, you are so super duper talented, just gorgeous! Well as soon as I saw these - I knew who I would thank! I would thank all the special and wonderful people who were involved in our wonderful wedding last weekend. It was the love, passion and enthusiasm that people put in to our day that made it just so amazing. Family, friends, fabulous florists and uber fantastic photographer - they were all just beyond awesome to work with, so inspiring!

Your blog has been a fantastic inspiration, and will keep being one of my daily reads!! I will just have to find another pretty event to plan and detail!!!

miss.c said...

Very cute cards. I personally am most thankful for love for what it helps me accomplish and the joy and happiness it brings. I would send a card to my lovely mum who has helped me so much.

amber perrodin said...

I'm thankful for my new job, my phenomenal husband, my crazy parents, loving inlaws, and fantastic kiddos!

Maria said...

Hi Kate! Love your blog.

I'm thankful for chocolate and flowy tops to cover up multiple chocolate indulgences!

I'm also thankful for Red - my favourite colour.

Erin*Sparkle&Hay said...

these are too beautiful - i might want to frame them on my wall and keep them rather than mail them out! no - i would send them to spread joy through their beauty (maybe just keep 1). I am SO thankful everyday to be surrounded by so many wonderful loving supportive people - my family, friends, and all of my new amazing friends around the world (who are always an email or tweet away) xoxo

BridalHood said...

I am so thankful for all the wonderful friends and family that contributed to our wedding day. And I would love to thank them in one of these gorgeous cards!

Fay said...

I am thankful for all the love and support my sister and brother-in-law have given to my fiance and I. We are struggling students getting married in a few months. We wouldn't be where we are today without their help (all the rides to the grocery store, helping us hand make as much as we can for the wedding..) They deserve a loving note on one of these cards!

alison said...

Kate these are gorgeous!! Loving the apricot :) I'm thankful for all the amazing people in my life - friends, family, work colleagues, twitter friends who support and encourage me. Also for having the opportunity to travel and be inspired every day. I'm so incredibly lucky and so grateful!! :) xo

Your designs are very inspiring... :) Well I could say I'm thankful for my mama... And I would probably give her that card...because she never stops being so supportive in everything I do. She never fails to give me advice and encouragement.

Luna and Chloe said...

Kate this are beautiful and I seriously want! If I don't win...will you see me some...please?

What am I thankful for...my list is endless really, but I will give you a glimpse here...

I am thankful that I have my grandma in heaven to pray to...hey God is busy...and she can whisper in his ear. I am thankful for my niece and nephew that were not supposed to be because of my brother-in-laws past cancer, which he is cancer free now...but happened and are perfect examples of miracles. I am thankful that I have made amazing friends through my blog, and that they are supportive, kind, thoughtful, and funny. I am thankful that I have what I do...I once lost everything I owned to robbery, and it makes me really appreciate what I have now. I am thankful for my great Aunt Millie who inspires me to be like her at 86...full of life! And finally, I am thankful for all my family...who gave me this life...whether good or bad at times...I wouldn't give it up for anything...because it is the one thing I have that I can call MINE!!!

Wow, kinda rambled...and thanks for making me take the time to remember what I am thankful for!

Luna and Chloe said...

Oopsies...forgot to say who I would send these too! Well, of course I would love to send a hand written note to all my blogger friends, but I would also love to send them to my niece and newphew as a reminder that their Auntie Sissy loves them...and though I am not there...they are always with me!!!

I'm thankful for a wonderful future mother-in-law, Shirley. She is like a mother to me and we have an amazing relationship. After I lost my mom last year, I had a hard time adjusting to life without her. I started dating Andy a couple of months later and Shirley has been there for me ever since. I would definitely send her one of these gorgeous notes.

Kristin said...

So cute! Posts like this remind me of all the great friends that I have made, and how I need to send them little notes for birthdays, anniversaries or just because.

postcards and pretties said...

I'm so thankful for my family & friends. Their continuous support and love make me one super happy girl.
I would give these LOVELY note cards to my mom because she always keeps EVERY single card, drawing, picture etc that I've ever given her.

btw - Have I told you how fantastic these are..I did? well I'll say it again I heart these & you!!

Lizzie [Ten Thou Bride] said...

Oh man, these are beautiful! I'm so thankful for all the people I'm lucky enough to call family and friends. My mom is an incredible woman. She's been feeling underappreciated lately and these notes are perfect to put the pep in her step!

Julie B said...

I am thankful for my nearly 3 year old son for teaching me compassion and understanding in a way I would never have learned on my own. Eight months ago we embarked on a journey together that has changed our lives. We learned that he has some learning delays and special needs. While we are fortunate that he will eventually overcome them it has been a long and emotional road to get to today. We have met and worked with wonderful specialists, teachers, and other families with children of similar and not so similar needs and learned that we are not alone. I am thankful, as odd as it may sound, for this experience as it taught me that it's ok to be less career, more mom and enjoy my time with my children. I would write a note to my son letting him know how incredibly special and wonderful he is and how proud I am of his hard work. I would also write notes to his 18 month old twin sisters letting them know how much I love them and how truly wonderful it is to be their mommy. And, of course, one to my husband for being my rock through all of this.

I am thankful that I had 3 and half years with my beautiful baby boy Luigi (Italian Greyhound) who passed away 4 weeks ago. He gave me the best 3 and a half years of my life and I am very thankful for that.

Rachaelle said...

Oh how excitingly (if that's a word) wonderful. I am thankful for your gorgeous designs as Im about to get married in April, on a strict budget, which we are paying for, and fantastic ideas like this allow me to realise that i don't have to sacrifice everything to make this the most incredible day of my life! I love the papaya and lipstick coloured set!
And while I am at it, I am thankful for my puppy dog, dynamite for being my hot water bottle throughout a clod winter...keep up this amazing work. :)

ko said...

The cards are extremely beautiful!

I'm extremely thankful for the wonderful community I live in, the fantastic company I work for, my family and for everyone's health and happiness.

I'd like to send a thank you card to a friend who took me to a concert I wasn't really interested in. I became interested in playing mandolin because of that concert and I ended up meeting my fiance (husband in 3 days!) when he helped me buy a mandolin. Sometimes it really is all about the timing. :)

Score said...

I'm thankful for my family, friends and my fiance. I could use the cards to send to my best friends for helping with my wedding.

Carolyn said...

I'm thankful for the rain washing on the roof, the sweetness of the silence it brings, of the ocean whispering, of the memory of people's goodwill and warmth.

Go well.

www.velaimages.com said...

I would use them to say a big Thank you to all the lovely brides and grooms who have booked with me for the coming wedding season. I think I am going to have to buy some anyway, they are just too beautiful. The only problem will be trying to decide which of the lovely colour palettes to go for??? They are simply stunning Kate.

Christine said...

Destination Diva said...

And I would send one of these cards to my mom! She has been so strong and helping my dad through his hard time with cancer. He starts Chemo and Radiation next week, so these cards would be a great way to tell her thanks and to tell my dad to be strong.

On this Thanksgiving Day here in Canada, I am thankful for friends, family, health, and that I have a job this year!

I would send one of these cards to a former coworker friend who just left our office, moving on to other things. I'm sad to see her go, but happy for her, so I'd write a lil' "thank you for being a friend" note in one of the cards.

Thanks for this opportunity- I LOVE these botanical cards and the colours you chose!!!

thepricklypinecone said...

I am thankful for my husband and all he has put up with and supported over the last year! I would send a card to my mum to let her know I am thinking of her.

Kate. What a great change on this blog. YOU are doing BRILLIANTLY.

I am thankful everyday to be alive. I may feel sometimes that life is so much to bear but I am thankful to have been given the opportunity to breath and discover so many amazing people and places.

Erica said...

Lovely cards!! I am thankful for my wonderful parents, and will definitely write my dad a card where I explain why more in detail, so he can have it with him when he will have to move for work thousands of miles away (for a while)... Would love to give him such a beautiful card carrying my message!

I'm so grateful for the help of my bridesmaids and family in helping to plan my wedding! I would use these cards (which just so happen to coordinate perfectly with my wedding colors!) to write them all a long, heartfelt thank you for the time they're devoting to making our day so special. Thanks for the fantastic giveaway!

Stephanie said...

I LOVE these cards! The color combination of apricot, grey, and mink is perfect.
I'm thankful for my husband and family. I'd love to send these cards to out of town family and friends as I love writing handwritten notes to stay in touch.
