Since we have just lived through (and enjoyed I must admit) Mother's Day 2009, I've been thinking about what I could do for you gals to let you know how much I appreciate ya, and I've decided that the best thing for me to do would be to host a giveaway! Then I started thinking, well what what would these chicks want? Then I realized I had no clue, but I picked something anyway. I know that some moms out there are crafty although I, myself, am not. The prize I picked out has the best of both worlds, and if you're not a crafty mama this kit will help you pretend.
An exclusive design by Dena Designs. "Create thoughtful, artfully-crafted greeting cards with a pocket-full of personal charm! This one-of-a-kind stationary collection holds all you need to craft whimsical, poetic greetings -- 30 beautiful, original cards with an innovative pocket design, 86 vellum quotes that are perfect for any occasion, and 41 delightful paper charms. With over 100,000 variations to choose from, you know your card will be one of a kind."
That is the quote from the box. I liked this kit because it is chock-full of completely adorable and unique cards. On the front of each card is a design (such as hearts, purses, gifts, flower pots, etc.) that also serve as a pocket in which you can stick a paper charm (or two) and a quote of your choice for that special someone. A sample of some of the quotes included are : Hold a true friend with both your hands, just a little hello, It's a boy/girl, I'll always love you, to my sweetheart, xox, you stole my heart, you are so kind, to unforgettable you, and many many more. The inside of each card is blank so that you can create your own personal message (Read: that is the crafty part.). Also included are 30 beautifully printed envelopes to match your card designs. I have seen some adorable cards created using this kit. Some have decorated the inside of their cards with vintage wallpaper, vintage jewelry, and all kinds of other nifty (oh yes I did) stuff. Just let your creativity take control. Plus, you get to include your own personal hand-written message. Lovely for those women (or men, I don't discriminate) who like to celebrate life events with a card. Not that it matters (okay maybe a little), but if you went out and purchased all of the items in this kit seperately it would cost over $100!!

30 Pocket Cards
86 vellum quotes
