Giveaway: Black Sheep Note Cards

black sheep note cardsI love it when my job introduces me to people I didn’t know and when I can then introduce you all to those people. This week’s giveaway is from someone I just had a chance to “meet,” Ruth of Black Sheep Note Cards.

This Maine-based business produces note cards with knitting and crochet themes as well as sheep jewelry.

Ruth was kind enough to send me one of each of her five notecard designs to share with you.

The cards measure 4.25 by 5.5 inches and envelopes are included.

To enter to win, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday (March 10). I’d love to know if you still send people notes or letters in the mail. I have one friend in Massachusetts who I write actual letters to, and my daughter loves drawing pictures and mailing them to her grandparents. It’s so cute!

Thanks for your interest and good luck!

    Those are fabulous! I still send lots of letters through the mail. And most of them come with a surprise package too!

  2. Judy says

    These are such clever reminders of a more relaxed and simple lifestyle.
    It would be nice to include a tea-bag along with the note to your friends…a subtle message to say “slow down, girl!”
    We all go too fast.
    Love it, Buttermilk Lane!!!

    I do still write notes, but defintely not as often as I should – especially at the moment, seem to be very behind. I think they are lovely to recieve so like to send back too. These are such sweet cards.

    I sometimes use note cards and write notes, even if a greeting card would be easier. My friends appreciate the fact that I take the time to write.

    Yes, I do send notes. It’s amazing how it brightens someones day and lets them know that you are thinking of them.
    Oh, and I love the sheep!

    I love to send notes to people they love it people these days only get bills in the mail. Those cards would look great with a sticker on the outside to match the cards. I also send cards for notes to the teachers.
