a card giveaway


It's fun at this time of year to open the mailbox and find handwritten holiday greetings from friends.  I was thinking how nice it would be if I could, myself, send more handwritten notes out throughout the year.  Email is nice, but there's just something about an out-of-the-blue letter to hold in your hand, isn't there?

So with that thought in my head, let's have a little giveaway, shall we?

Here's what you need to do...go to my shop and look at my card sets and come back here and leave me a comment telling me which is your favorite. 

This giveaway is now closed.
I'll draw 2 names on Monday evening (Dec. 16th, 2013) and the winners will get a set of cards of their choice.

Thank you, everyone, and good luck!

My absolute favorite set is GATHERINGS OF STONES!!

I know, I can hear you groaning!! You know I love them all! That is why I chose a card from each set to hold me over while I save for all 4 sets...maybe then I can share!! 8*)

Ann said...

All wonderful but I think my favorite is.....the acorns!!!

Sally said...

One favorite? That's tough. I guess the Stones Set, but Rainbows Set is right up there, and I have absolute faves in each set. They're all gorgeous. Thank you for the chance to win a set!

sandy said...

I love colors! Your color and texture set is awesome!

kelly said...

They are all lovely...so it was a tough choice! My two favorites are Natural Musings and Gathering of Stones.
By the way, I have so enjoyed discovering your work! I am an artist myself...and a lover of mushroom hunting and the woods. I am interested in needle felting and was wondering if you could supply or direct me to some of the mist useful quality tools necessary to get started..or a favorite website or source for the tight wool and wire, etc.?

Margaret said...

I love the stones, so the gathering of stones is my favorite (but I do love those acorns, too). And look, I am just noticing your acorn mushroom tutorial--thank you!

filzquadrat said...

The cards I love most are these with acorns, acorns in the circle, acorns on the tree-trunk and so on! Tahnk you for the chance to win a set!

kelly said...

Oh, I misread the post! Two winners , one favorite! Well...I must amend my previous post. This is tougher than I though. I guess I will choose Natural Musings for the variety then.

Zoe said...

I love the Gathering of Stones. I am a collector of stones. Many are inside the house, many are outside. They are all special and beautiful. It would be an honor to win a set of your cards!

Jaime said...

I love set 5, with the natural rainbows! So beautiful!!

Lynette said...

I am simply taken by the natural rainbows collection. You have an amazing eye and such skills!!

Kim said...

Oh such a difficult task to pick a favorite but I'm particularly drawn to the Drifted card, the one with the white stones in the wooden bowl. This give away is such a kind thing for you to do, thank you.

Muhku said...

It took me a while to choose a favorite since all of these are very beautiful. But "Mossy Log Gradient" from this set http://lilfishstudios.bigcartel.com/product/single-greeting-card-from-natural-rainbows-set gives me such peaceful and happy feelings that I'll have to choose that one. :)

Catherine said...

I especially love Natural Rainbows but they are all beautiful.

Christie Clark said...

Seriously?? Pick ONE?!? :) Natural Musings is my fav.
And I didn't realize you sell felting needles- I'll be stopping back for some soon!!

Naomi McDonald said...

The Natural Musings set is very beautiful...actually all of them are :) I get lots of compliments on the brooch I bought! ~Naomi

wintunancy said...

I guess I would pick the gathering of stones set, but to be honest, you could just pick one and surprise me and I would be thrilled. Thanks for sharing. You are right, there is nothing like getting real mail. The older I get, the more I appreciate it.

Catherine Etter, The Mindful Spirit said...

Gathering of stones has my heart as that may be the closest I'll get to the real thing, your work is simply tutu enchanting for words...........

Elizabeth said...

I love them all! But my favorite is A Gathering of Stones. I'd be so happy to win! You are a generous soul and an amazing artist. I look forward to your posts every day. Thank you.

ela said...

Pick one is not easy but if I had to make a choice....
natural rainbow set

Yarnword said...

Lisa all of your images are lovely to look at - "Mossy Log Gradient" is a rainbow of joy, but if I had to choose one it would be "Drifted" - it's winter after all and Christmas is close and snow is forecast for us this coming week!

Brenda Groelz said...

The card, Stitched, from Gathering of the Stones, features three stones that I own. I'd enjoy sending that one to my friends.

Your cards are all beautiful! I can't decide between Natural Musings or Colour and Texture. Thanks for the giveaway!

Beth said...

Hello Lisa, your works are so beautiful, it's hard to pick one...I love natural Musings because of the mushrooms, many years ago I purchased a felt ladybug talking to a mushroom and I always smile when I look at it, these cards remind me of that!

Oak Shade Farm said...

I love them all...but my favorite is the acorn set with the embroidery floss!

Jennifer Wright said...

Now that is a very difficult job, only picking a favorite. They are each so delightful! Gatherings of Stones Set and Natural Rainbows Set are exciting and are my favorites. Thank you for such a generous giveaway and some people are going to be thrilled on Monday! Blessings

Kristy M said...

Hi Lisa- so hard to pick a favorite! It is awesome to have your projects printed into cards-we cant all be lucky enough to purchase your work-but we can have the cards to be inspired by! I love looking at your photos-if i won I would frame them and put them up in my studio. The color and texture ones are my favorite because you mix color and texture so beautifuly! I hope you are feeling better today! Thanks for the chance to win!

Unknown said...

Gathering of Stones, definitely.

Your stones are your signature and the arrangements are cohesive and visually interesting. All of your work is perfection, but this is my favorite.

Happy holidays to you and yours!

redwitch said...

Without a doubt, the tiny toadstools in acorns are my absolute favourites! I love your cards - they capture such a spirit of nature.
Hope that you are feeling a little better today :)

Michelle said...

I have always loved to send and receive mail, and all the accoutrements that go with it. Your cards are beautiful; my favorite is the one pictured in this post – Natural Rainbows. Thank-you for the giveaway!

Tina said...

They are each inspiring in their own way. My personal favorite is "Acorn Rainbow" in the Natural Rainbows set. My mom once wrote a poem that thanked God for the technicolor touch. She wrote that God could have made it all in black and white and we would never have known the difference. This is what your cards remind me of - how lucky we are to live in such a colorful wonderland. Thanks!

Rebecca said...

I love all of your cards but in particular the color and texture set. Beautiful!

Lisa said...

Gathering of stones is my favorite set but Bug Bitten' - a river of stones against a bug-chewed log is my favorite card. They are all beautiful! I love your work! Crossed fingers on this giveaway!

RaeRaggs said...

One of my favorites has always been 'Mossy Log Gradient'. Maybe you should consider turning some of the cards that sell well into prints to hang on the wall. Your photography is beautiful and so happy.

RattleFox said...

I love them all, but gathering of stones won my heart.

Chandice M said...

Oooo I would pick the Gathering of Stones. So pretty :D

Kathleen Hartley said...

I was really drawn to the color and texture series, so much to look at and pleasing to the eye.

Paige said...

I love "close-up"- how it shows the texture of the work you do. But in truth, I love them all. I love the fact that they are so natural looking with lots of color, warmth and movement. Like I could reach out and actually feel them. So, Bug bitten, Jungle and Rock garden are all up there as is the Pin one. Just pure beauty and delight ! Thank you for sharing your art with us.

Marilee said...

As I love acorns, I'll pick the rainbow set, and I especially like that your pix of the threads wound around your "bobbins," are included in this. However, I love everything you do, Lisa.

Barb Brown said...

natural musings…but all of your work is amazing!

anomaleah said...

What a nice idea! Thank you so much for hosting this giveaway, I know exactly whom I would write! It was a tough choice but I think ultimately my favorite is the Gathering of Stones collection.

Cindy Floyd said...

They are all so lovely it is hard to choose, but I'd have to say (e) with the oak leaf and acorns. I live in an ancient oak grove in Northern California, and have a special affinity.

Emma Elliott said...

I also love baby birch and natural.musing but happy for you to pick. They are after all, all stunning :)

Marlene said...

I've always admired your creativity with stones. I love stones also. My favorite set of cards is Gatherings of Stone.

beth lehman said...

oh, the gatherings. any shots of your stones together in a group are just fabulous. the first i saw of your work was a group shot on flickr. i've been entranced ever since!

Ariadne Skyrianidou said...

Oh how can one choose? I guess colour and texture is my favourite set as it includes my all time favourite ones the whites! Thanks for the giveaway!AriadnefromGreece!

jademond said...

i love the gathering of rainbow nature card d ever since i first saw it

Sarah said...

Mine would be natural rainbow. I really hope I have a chance to win. It costs too much to post to Wales and I would lovebto own one of your creations. Sarah aka Mustard Pot Flowers xx

Tiffany said...

natural rainbows is my favourite, so stunning! They are all so beautiful though :-)

crazydazy said...

I love the Natural Rainbows set...I just love colour and the cards are so bright and cheery.

Mousy Brown said...

Natural Rainbows gets my vote too - all that colour would really cheer me up! :D

Kim said...

It's REALLY too hard to choose - either natural rainbows or natural musings! They are ALL gorgeous and I would LOVE to send notes on them :)

Joan and Kevin said...

I love the acorns!
Thanks for the giveaway!

Dana Craft said...

dear lisa, i love all of your cards, that's a hard decision...
most of all i love your birchbarkcanoes in the heart-wooden bowl (i made some of them after your tutorial as christmas presents for my husband last year - they hang in our kitchen still ☺ ) but as a set i love the natural rainbows of yours!
anyway, i love the style of your pictures and i love your natural crafts,
take care, dana

Zoe said...

I love the Gathering of Stones set. They are so beautiful.

knitpaintlove.com said...

I'd have to go with gathering stones. I swear I could look at those stones all day. Very beautiful.

Dawn Suzette said...

Oh, my... Hard to choose but I would have to pick the natural musings set. You are sweet and generous! Thanks for the chance!

Lisarek said...

Hi Lisa,

It's difficult to choose one photo.

Two photos really speak to me-- the collection of colorfully stitched rocks (gathering stones set) and the clothespins wrapped in beautiful colors screaming out "pick me, pick me!" (natural rainbows set).

Great work.

Lisa in Chicago

Mary K said...

I really like the Natural Rainbow card set. Your photography and needlework is beautiful.

Jessica Jo said...

It's so hard to choose between natural rainbow and the gathering stones set.

Zoe Hardy said...

I LOVE the cards with embroidered stones and, like everyone else, I found it difficult to choose just one. I guess I will have to go with "Stone Gradient."

JenD said...

Love "missy log gradient". But then again, they are all just lovely. :)

newburnmum said...

The Natural Musings really jumps out at me as my favorite.

Gill said...

So hard to choose!! I think your 'natural musings' are my favourite!

Sandra Triantafyllou said...

Wow, I just discovered you and I'm so happy I did! I love the natural rainbow set best but only by a slight margin. Thank you for your kindness and sharefulness!

Deb said...

I love the acorns in rainbow colors!

nini said...

So SO difficult to choose! I can't decide between the natural rainbows and gatherings of stones but I'll do it if I get picked up :) Which would be totally awsome btw as I really love your beautiful creations.

Thank you for the opportunity.

All the best in 2014 and happy Holidays!

Amanda Pedro said...

are you really suggesting we choose?!! They are all heart warming and spirit lifting. The colour, composition and felted wool with stitching. All are included on the list of calmness to the soul.
Thanks for sharing!

LindyLaine said...

Hi Lisa, Hope you feel better soon! Very hard to have to choose but I think if I have to pick only one collection, it would be "Gatherings of Stones". xx

Ketra said...

I would love to win the gathering of stones set. Your stones are so gorgeous!

curlygirlpress said...

Since I have to pick only one, the one that truly catches my eye is the rainbow leaf with brown acorns. But they're all so beautiful!

Jodi said...

Oh, how beautiful they all are! I would choose the set of five "Natural Rainbows".

Sabine said...

I like the clothespins and the autumn log

Diana said...

Your work is amazing, but I think I love the "Gatherings of Stones" set the best. That piece you did with the wooden board and all the small stones is just amazing. Thanks for sharing your inspiring art with us all online!
