Another Great Big Cartolina Giveaway!
As is the tradition around here, we have new product so we are having a new product giveaway! The prizes are fabulous - the 2 winners shall receive a full set of all our new goodies - cards, notebooks and pocket mirrors -yay! I love sharing the excitement every few months. So all you have to do is leave a comment at the bottom of the post - tell me who you'd most like to send one of our cards to. It could be your granny or it could be someone from history - anyone. I'll leave the giveaway open until Sunday at 4pm Pacific time. Now if, for some reason, you need to get your hands on some Cartolina loot before next week then you can always get yours right here from Modern Paper Goods - the whole collection at great prices and great service options.



One of the best things about designing and producing a product is that I can share it with friends :-)
And I'll have 2 winners on Monday morning for you :-) If you'd like to enter more than once you just need to blog or Tweet this post! Thanks for entering! Good luck!

Words and Eggs said...

Yay for awesome Cartolina giveaways! :)
I would most like to send a postcard to Monsieur Alfred de Vigny, a 19th-century French Romantic writer/thinker/generally awesome guy (and the focus of my dissertation).

Thanks for a great giveaway!

Abby said...

I'd like to send a card to my long-lost friend Maha - last I heard, she was in college in France!

Rosie said...

I'd most like to send one to myself...that way I could keep it, but if I have to be more altruistic, I'd say my best friend. I love her! She's awesome! And loves pretty things, so it would be the perfect little pick me up for her to receive one in the post. Thanks for the giveaway.

Fritzi Marie said...

Oh, my goodness...what a lovely giveaway.
I blogged about your "Make A Wish" card last week. Everything you do is so beautiful.

Well, if I could write anyone it would be my Auntie Alma, the sassiest lady I know. She sends me old black and white photo's of her past boyfriends, keeps her keys in her cleavage, has a potty mouth, thinks marriage is for the birds, and entertains me to no end.

Wishing you love,
Fritzi Marie

I feel guilty for entering, but I simply can't help myself!

If I were to win this lovely Cartolina loot I would definitely send cards to a handful of the wonderful folks I finally met in person at the Stationery Show. Oh, and my mama too. She's been having a rough go of things lately and I think some Cartolina goodies would cheer anyone up!

Aušra said...

Your postcarsds are so sweet. I'll send them, if I win, to my friend abroad, who I am missing so much.

Greetings from Lithuania. :}

chicola said...

My sister moves to Paris to pursue her dream of playing piano professionally in Europe! I would love to be able to send her a card for every new performance she has, to at least let her know I will be with her in spirit!

Anyone who follows their dreams deserves to have the world cheer them on!

Catherine said...

Oooh, I would definitely send one to my friend Adam, with whom I write correspond mostly via handwritten letters! Also to my nun-friend, with whom I can *only* correspond via handwritten letters!

Alexis said...

I've always had a thing for hot air balloons--love that one!

I'd probably send cards to my friends who don't get enough fun things in the mail.

Paper Stories said...

my neighbor across the street. she is from France and is homesick. I think one of you French cards would pick her up. she just had a baby too so perhaps your bonjour bebe card would be great too. ;)

Hanna said...

love the new line!

Amy said...

I would love to send one of these to the owner of the local fabric and yarn shop where I work. They are just her style, and I love them too!

mari said...

Goody Goody Goody!
I think I'll be super sentimental today and say that I'd send one to my future self and a second to my daughter - both 20 years from now. I feel time slipping away too quickly. She's growing so fast, so a little reminder of today would be perfect.

mari said...

And I just tweeted the giveaway - Thanks Fiona!

The Armchair Parisian said...

I would send a love letter from my imaginary self to my imaginary lover in Paris....

Elizabeth said...

YEah!!! I love these! I would send the top one to my sister in law who is expecting a little boy in a few weeks!!!

kitty-cate said...

I think I'd send a card to Douglas Adams, in honour of yesterday being Towel Day. He's one of my favourite authors, and I think he deserves at least a card or two to show my gratitude.

nathalie et cetera said...

i would most certainly send it to my friend downstairs. she's a paper lover and i'm sure she would love your cards!

Amy said...

I just posted about this on my blog as well! http://www.amyalamode.com/blog/2010/05/26/cool-stuff-this-morning/

Nan said...

These are wonderful! I'd love to send the birthday card to my older sis who is a costume designer and the "teacups" to my younger sis with whom I've shared many a cup of tea. I miss them!

Thanks for creating such lovely images. Nan

Jenny said...

Sydney said...

I found you through Amy a la Mode as well! She works at Bobbins Nest Studio and I had the pleasure of working with her when I was employed there!

I'd send a card to my former boss, believe it or not. She would LOVE some of these prints! Also, my baby brother's wife is expecting their first child any second and I'd love to send them a card as well.

Octopodimous said...

I would send the Bonjour Bebe card to my dear friend who is very pregnant with her first daughter! She would probably frame it and hang it in the nursery. :D

Mia Cupcake said...

I would send one of your cards to my mom, who has lost her creative flow and desperately needs it back...........

Sharon Hermens said...

Just want you to know when my computer crashed and I got it back you were one of the first blogs I put (back) in my favorites. I so enjoy your blog. Would love to win something but, odds are I probably won't and that's o.k.

megan said...

I love the bonjour bebe cards, so adorable! I would send one to my best friend in Phoenix who like me, loves non traditional nursery decor. J's room is a vintage cowboy theme. Gotta love the vintage with soft colors.

fancylinda said...

Hello, I would have given one to my yoga teacher if I'd have known it was her birthday today... Oh well, I can stock up for the future!

Jeannie said...

I'd send one to my husband! Even though he is right here with me---he loves Paris and French things beyond all reason.

Tanya said...

Lovely cards! I think I'd send one to my Nana in Scotland, filled with photos of her great grandsons!

AnnaVallance said...

I am just back from a trip and you are the first blog I check and lucky me you are having a giveaway! Who would I send a card to? Daphne DuMaurier, when I was growing up she was one of my favourite authors.

Casey said...

all the designs are amazing!! love that Bonjour Bebe one, I have so many babies being born around here, someone would likely get one of those

zerimar said...

I would love to win this set to send cards to my nieces as they are 12 and 15 and love receiving hand written pieces in the mail. The notebooks and pocket mirrors would have them screaming for joy! Especially since it'll be coming from their favorite uncle ;)

Quilter422 said...

how fun, these are just so pretty. i'd send one to my aunt, who's husband recently passed.

sfer said...

A friend of mine, Iris, once sent me the prettiest card I've ever gotten, so I guess she would be the first one to get a card from Cafe Cartolina.

Congratulations on the new products, and thanks thanks thanks for the chance to win some! Cheers from Barcelona, Spain!

Chris Chun said...

I would love to send Marie Antoinette your 'Hooray, Today is your Birthday' Card. Can you imagine her face seeing an elephant on the front with a bouquet of flowers!!!! It would be beyond her wildest imagination though I am sure she would love to use the 'Merci Beaucoup' Cards.

Sam said...

What a sweet opportunity. Amy sent me over and I'm so glad she did. I have a friend from 45 years ago I'm trying to reconnect with, she would be my first choice.

csl said...

Your products are fabulous. I love your blog. I would send the 'Happy Birthday' card to my best friend. Her birthday is in June. Thank you for the give-away!

Meadow said...

Such beauty and creativity! I would love to send a card to my sister for all the support and kindness she has given me through out our life together. Sisters rock!

On A Lark said...

Wonderful! Tres jolie! I don't know anyone that would not enjoy receiving one of these pretty cards in the mail! I guess I would have to chose my dear amie Nancy :) Thank you for such a nice give-away!

Rachael, Pistachio Press said...

These are really gorgeous! I think I would send one to my sister. She recently moved 15-hours away, her first really big move and I like sending her unexpected pick-me-ups.

chocolatecup said...

I would send one of these lovely lovely cards to my bff whom i met in French class and is as crazy over pretty things as i am. oh and the cards do remind me of one of our fav movies-Marie Antoinette!

thank you for the giveaway sweetie!

Max said...

Oh wow, my mailbox is craving some love. I've said it before and I'll say it again...Marie Anoinette! x

mimi charmante said...

absolutely loving your work! what beautiful cards~

Susanne Amrein said...

I love your work and your blog is a daily pleasure I am always looking forward to.
If I would win, I'd send the notebook to Giacomo Girolamo Casanova a Venetian adventurer and author and a famous womanizer: I bet he would have loved to catch a glimpse at the lady's leg and would have made notes of all his 'adventures' ;) The Bonjour Tour Eiffel goes definitely to my friend from Paris... I could go on and on.
Thank you Fiona !!

Brittany Noel said...

Hi Fiona! That was close, I almost missed it! Well, I think that, given the circumstances, I would send them to the lucky family/friends who will be our wedding party. I think it would be super cute to formally invite them. Especially with your fab stationery!

Hugs from Hawaii :)

Debra Norton said...

Hi Fiona,
They are all so lovely. My daughter is having a "Souvenir de Paris" b-day party in a couple of weeks so I would love to give her the Paris Eiffel Tower card. Merci!

Wini said...

Hi Fiona, your new designs are lovely and thank you for hosting such a lovely giveaway!! I'd love to give the Happy Birthday card or notebook, or the card with the cups, to my mother in law. She adores all things historical and she has a beautiful collection of vintage ceramics and paintings. She would love these designs!

Alison said...

I'd love to send a card to Marie Antoinette to find out what she was really like behind all the gowns and glitter. I love the new cards and notebooks - very pretty!

paris parfait said...

These designs are all fabulous! Well done, you!

Maryam in Marrakesh said...

I would send a surprise card to my husband. I would put no returning address so he would have no idea who it was. Then I would put a tiny little love note inside and spray my perfume. After 13 years of marriage, he would be so surprised - I think he might fall off his chair.
