AFS 5 Year Birthday Giveaway #3!

I am so excited to share with you the 3rd giveaway to celebrate my blog's 5th year anniversary!  Today's giveaway would not be possible without Primele and Paisley Tree Press's generosity!



Both of these etsy sellers have items that I have had in my "favorites" for quite some time.  The thought behind today's giveaway is thankfulness.  In this fast paced world, the hand-written note is often neglected.  Emails, texts, and calls are great, but there is something wonderful about holding a card with a loved one's thoughts and words of gratitude captured on the page. I treasure hand-written cards so much, I have amassed quite a collection.  I never know what to do with all of the wonderful sentiments I have received in the mail, but I hate to throw away such a tangible reflection of a person whom I treasure.

To celebrate the time-honored tradition of the hand-written note, I am thrilled to offer this giveaway's winner a beautiful, calligraphy-inspired address stamp by Primele 
AND a set of 12 thank you letterpress cards from Paisley Tree Press!
(winner's choice of 12 of the Garden Thank You Cards OR Thank You Thank You Cards)



I love the Primele stamps because they take the old-school staple (the humble rubber stamp) and up the ante with such beautiful script.  The Paisley Tree Press cards are printed 100% cotton {tree-free} paper and are created using a circa 1902 letterpress. Pretty cool, huh?

I LOVE that stamp! I would buy it immediately if I still had a permanent address :( So, I guess I have my eye on the thank-you notes (also beautiful).
