Springtime "library" cards and a reader contest!
Groundhog Day is just around the corner and I am woefully wishing for an early spring. I have started to think of winter as a bad library customer who has loaned springtime for way too long. I realize there is still a lot of time between now and March 20 but I would like springtime back ASAP. This feeling led me to an idea for some new cards . . .
Thanks to my husband and his school, I am the lucky recipient of a box of vintage library cards. Using my stamps and a calligraphy pen, I turned these blank library cards into decorative note cards with my winter/spring idea. In my cards, "springtime" is a book title written by four different authors: Persephone, Mr. Robin, Mrs. Crocus, and Peter Rabbit (all things I think about when I think of spring). The book has been taken out by "winter" and is due back ASAP. Each library card has been glued to a folded, blank white card. I photographed these cards in my backyard, in the snow.
Now for the contest information:
I made 2 sets of 4 cards and I am giving one set away to a lucky reader! To enter the drawing, leave a comment on this blog entry with a note about your favorite season of the year. The contest will end at noon on Friday, February 4. I'll draw a name at the end of the week and will be in touch for the winner's mailing information. Don't forget to leave your email in the comment if I don't already have your contact information!
