Giveaway!! 9 Cartolina Cards Notebooks

Thanks to all the commenters and readers who emailed me. The winner of the random drawing for the Cartolina Notebooks is Rachael of Little Bites of Heaven. Congratulations Rachael!


Blogging has been so much fun and I appreciate all the comments and reader emails. As you know, I'm a huge fan of the very talented Fiona Richards of Cartolina Cards and would love to share a complete set of her recent notebooks - 9 in all! - with a lucky reader of this blog. Just leave a comment by Saturday morning, 9 am e.s.t. If you don't have a google account and can't leave a comment - feel free to email me at mynottinghill (at) gmail.com with Cartolina in your subject header.

These notebooks are also available online at Greet Q - and at $4 a piece they make the perfect treat for yourself or someone else.

Also, Fiona has the most lovely blog full of visual treats and interesting things that are really unique - check it out at Cafe Cartolina.
Here is one of my favorite notebooks spread out on Michael S. Smith's book without its cover.I love the colors contrasted here! I carry this notebook around with me and make notes and drawings in it too.

Tomorrow I'm headed off to the Philadelphia Flower Show with a friend. I've never been and am quite excited - especially since Spring here in D.C. seems to be on temporary hold. Here' s the view out my family room window. I was bad - never brought the umbrella in for the winter! The snow is covering our pool cover - can't wait till that is gone and we can get out there and enjoy the backyard. My kids, however, had a great time building this the other day!

Sweet notebooks that remind me of a summer day! Just right for jotting thoughts and lists.
We have plenty of snow here- I suspect I could build a great igloo or a super tunnel-in which to hide until spring.....

London Calling said...

Enjoy the show and the snow. The notebooks are lovely too. Smiles, LC

Those notebooks are so great! They remind me of these vintage fabrics I found in my grandmother's linen closet. Plus they are just colorful enough to make taking notes a little more pleasant!

Yes, just like everybody else, I think that these notebooks are quite stunning - I don't think we have the full range here in Australia (or not that I've come across), and to see them here in all their glory is wonderful! Enjoy the Philadelphia Flower Show. Lee :)

The notebooks remind me of vintage barkcloth, a favorite of mine. Since my sister-in-law and I have such similar taste I know she would love them too. I confess if I receive them--I'm definitely sharing a few of them with her!
