    Congrats!! 10 years is definitely an accomplishment! I have some inspiration cards. Haven’t done anything with him in ages, but I think that is because the ones I have don’t resonate with me very much. The artwork and sentiments on yours are much more congruent with where I am in life right now. If I get a deck of your cards I think I would pick a different one every day to reflect on before or after my meditation. another way I think I would use them is to place one each day and a spot where I’ll see it frequently and use it as a reminder to live mindfuly and in a way that is congruent with my values. there are a million ways you could use a deck of cards like that! xo

    Hi Violette! I love to use my inspiration cards (I have a couple Hay House inspiration cards and some SARK cards) as part of my Angel Readings – for other people sometimes, and for myself – as a way to find out what the angels want me to focus on for the day (what’s today’s message?). Here’s an example of one of my explorations, used in my own blog:

    you know I love these cards! I want string wire across one end of my studio then use tiny close pins to hang your cards on it. When I need inspiration I can just pluck one drone it! Hope I win!

  21. Shannon GANSHORN
    October 27, 2014 at 5:42 pm (6 years ago)

    Congratulations on ten years! Wow!

    If I won the cards, I would put them on the windowsill by the front door. That way, when any of us leave the house, we could pick up a card and mull it over as we walked/drove/cycled to wherever we were going! Another idea is to use the cards to generate conversation around the dinner table. Choose a card and tell the family something about your day that relates to the card in some way. I hope I win!!! LOL.

    Hi Violette, thank you for this lovely give-away. I would loooooooove a set of your inspiration cards. Your artwork inspires me so much! I have a set of Abraham-Hicks inspirational cards and I choose 3 at the beginning of every week. I keep them out on my bedside table and read them every morning and evening. I also choose one card from the deck when doing my New moon or full moon ritual. Sometimes I choose one for a friend who is having a hard time and send them a text message of the message that was chosen for them plus a photo of the card for inspiration. <3

    I own a good collection of oracle-cards and you can do reading with them, of course, but you can also use them for prompt-ideas or processes. I would use your cards for daily-guidance or in addition to my decks! I love your style, your humour an quirkieness, that is also showing in your artwork. Dear greetings and congratulations to all your achievments. Being a witness of your accomplishments is a great inspiration!!!

    Congratulations on 10 years blogging, ^_^. I don’t have angel cards, but I’d love to win a set of your awesome cards! 😉 Having a hard time staying positive, and feeling very negative lately. I would use them daily, to help me when the pain is too much, suffering from FMS, and all I can do is just curl up in my chair, wrapped in an cosy blanket and waith till I feel better. I would choose one of the cards and hold them close till I feel strong and happy enough to start some art. ♥

  55. Deb May
    October 30, 2014 at 3:30 pm (6 years ago)

    Congrats Violette, your blog is so inspirational and to keep a blog going for 10 years takes a real commitment to sharing your life and art with others. I have a few decks of inspiration cards – usually once a month I shuffle and pull a card from each deck and then whatever pops up is what I try to focus on during the month – in art, meditation,reading and life in general. I think that drawing the card you do is a message from the universe – but even if I am wrong about that – what can it hurt!
    Many thanks for your blog – may you continue for another 10 years.
    Cheers and cyber hugs

    Congratulations on your 10th anniversary, I’m not surprised so many people like your fabulous art ! As for me, I don’t own any inspiration cards, as they’re not that common in France. But I would use them in my art journal if I had some, and keep one that’s special to me in my purse, to have a look at it from time to time.
    Thanks for sharing your inspiration with us, and keep on going !

    Hi, Violette! Congratulations on 10 years of blogging!!!! I’ve been following your art one way or the other before I even knew what a blog was. I am so inspired by YOU and your art. It’s so upbeat and positive, which is what I try to cultivate in my own life. I have tons of inspirational-type decks. I pull a card whenever the urge comes over me…or when I happen to come across a deck at random. It always seems to be just the right message for the moment. Don’t you love how that works?!?! <3

    Congratulations on 10 years in the blogging world; you are an inspiration to so many people. Thanks for sharing your life and your unique artistic journey with the rest of us. If I had the inspiration deck I think I’d use it to start my mornings off with a positive idea to jumpstart the day. I might create an AJ page or a tag or maybe even use the impetus from the inspiration to create a card to mail to someone who might need a pickup. The possibilities are absolutely endless when inspiration is flowing. Thanks for allowing us the opportunity to win the deck; have a great weekend!

    I have a varied collection of cards. I use them to give me a focus for the day, or explore challenges I’m having. Traditional readings, or just pulling a card to meditate on. On rare occasions I’ve also used them to inspire writing or art journalling. I’d like to do more of that.

  83. Jackie S
