Au Revoir & Give away!

Well, I am pretty much packed and ready to fly out to Oklahoma tomorrow. I have been texting with Donna all day... we're both SO EXCITED! I have been gathering and wrapping little goodies for Holly & Donna and their herds of boys and trying to gather up everything Hannah might need. I am pooped and ready to just GO.

Today I finished up and photographed another batch of cards inspired by my Summer Card Swap. I figure that since I will be gone for the next week, I will schedule Blogger to post a card each day and then when I get back I will add them all to the Flickr group. I am still really enjoying creating cards and seeing what the other girls are sending in. I recently got a packet from Ellen of One Ripe Peach. I don't think I need to tell you how adorable they are!! She was so sweet and sent me this darling little package with a cute little journal she made as a hostess gift. I love it. Ellen does such darling and beautiful work so I was thrilled when she agreed to be part of this swap. I will have to take pictures of the cards she sent so everyone can see.

In parting, I have a sneak peek of my newest "Bluhm Studios" creation, which will be available in my Etsy shop upon my return. I am taking one each to Donna and Holly. To be entered into the drawing for a third, please leave a comment on this post and I will draw a name when I return from my trip. It was a lot of fun wrapping said item(s) and I used some vintage wallpaper trim to embellish each package which is just a hint of what is inside! Good luck...

  4. Oh that looks like a lovely little bit of lovliness....I think I would like it just for the pretty wrapping, but as someone (?) said on their blog once that they would buy dirt if it was wrapped up pretty...yep that would be me too, but I am sure there is no dirt in these precious packages. Have a spectacular time, look forward to hearing about it soon. kiss noises Linda Lilly Cottage.
