Hello, Friends! I’ve missed you!!! It’s been a while since my last post (um, Valentine’s I think). It’s the busiest season for my business, so I haven’t had a chance to work on any of the posts or personal projects I’ve had planned. If you follow Love Paper Paint on Instagram or Facebook, you might have noticed that I post quite often each day with photos of recent work, my current 365 project (#inspiration365 or #2013inspiration365 where I share iphone pics of things that inspire me in my daily life), and lots and lots of pictures of food!
With Mother’s Day just a week away, I quickly whipped up a free printable to share with any of you who would like a card to give to your BEST MOM EVER. Or perhaps, YOU are the Best Mom Ever and this is just a visual reminder of your awesomeness! So feel free to print it out, hang it up on the fridge or family bulletin board…and give yourself a pat on the back, high five or fist pump for being such an amazing Momma! You deserve it!
The card is hand-lettered and watercolored, scanned and then placed into a card template. The pdf links are at the end of this post. The first printable file is set up with crop marks as 7″ X 10″, so once you print to 8.5″ X 11″, just cut according to the crop marks and fold in half to create a standard 5″ X 7″ card. Depending on the weight of the card stock you’re using, you may want to score it before folding. You can also cut out just the artwork and mount to a folded card you already have (a coordinating colored card stock would be pretty). The second file is the artwork sized to 8″ X 10″ with crop marks, to print out as a sign, suitable for framing.
To thank you for your support on Instagram and Facebook (and for tolerating the insane amount of food pics I post on IG), I’m giving away the original 8″ X 10″ illustration. To be entered in the GIVEAWAY, just follow Love Paper Paint on Instagram or Facebook! If you already do, then just post a comment on the Instagram or Facebook post relating to this giveaway so I know if you’re even interested in winning the artwork. A winner will be randomly chosen from the post comments on both IG and FB and any new likes/followers.
I want to make sure to mail the card out as soon as possible, so that the winner of the giveaway can give it to Mom on Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 12), which means that this giveaway is only offered to U.S. residents. It will be need to be shipped USPS Priority Mail on Wednesday at the latest, so the winner will be chosen and announced on Tuesday, May 7th. If you are chosen, I’ll need your mailing address so I can ship out Wednesday, May 8th.
Thanks again for your support of Love Paper Paint. Give Mom a hug for me. Happy Mother’s Day!
