i won!

a couple of weeks ago i entered a card giveaway on oh so beautiful paper -- and i won! i was so excited; i never win anything, so this was a big deal for me.

my prize came in the mail this week -- a set of cards from city of dionne!

the cards are adorable, and even the packaging is fun. the cards were wrapped up in a neat blue paper package and the tag was tied on through an eyelet. this dionne knows her stuff -- i love her little city logo and that she finds such cute ways to use it. great branding from start to finish:

i love the card designs and the little matching embellishments on the envelopes:

take a quick peek at her online shop -- in addition to her illustrated cards, she sells photo prints, pillow boxes, and all sorts of fun paper treasures. this card in particular made me smile -- what blogger wouldn't love to receive this in the mail?:

a huge thanks to nole for hosting the giveaway and especially to dionne for brightening up my week! can't wait to see what else she comes up with. also, check out dionne's equally delightful blog here -- by reading a few posts, i already feel like i've made a new friend. yay for the blogging world and all of our virtual friends :)


  1. Awwww, thanks for your kind words! I am blushing!

  2. Congrats on your win! Yeah it's always nice to win something and get something beautiful in the mail.

  3. Congrats! SO fun to win something! I just won a giveaway too and feel like a million bucks! (well sort of. If we could just buy a house then I'd really feel like a million bucks :) )
    hooray for cute FREE cards!
