10yearanniversary

 

We have a winner! Congratulations to Penny D!!  Thanks everyone for entering my contest.

Hooray! I can’t believe that I have been blogging for 10 years!  In celebration of that feat and to thank you so much for visiting my blog and supporting me I’m having a blog giveaway.  I’ll be giving away a set of Inspiration Cards based on my #60in60 cartoons.

There are 60 inspiration cards to inspire you daily.  If you’d like to enter to win please leave a comment down below letting me know what you do with your inspiration cards (if you have some) and how you use them.  If you don’t own a set of inspiration cards (and i mean angel cards, You can Heal your life cards etc.) I’ll be using some of your ideas in a video promoting the cards and how to use them in the very near future!

I’ll be drawing a name on Monday November 3 at 8 am PST.

Good luck to you!

P.S. If you would like to reserve a set of cards for yourself (they will be 15 dollars plus shipping) please shoot me an e-mail and i’ll keep your name on the list.

Love, Violette xo

60 in 60 inspiration cards are here!

I’m so excited to give you a peek at my 60 in 60 inspiration cards!  Hooray!  They are here! I just ordered two decks first of all to see if i liked them before ordering 50 of them – it’s quite the outlay of money so wanted to be sure first. The quality is quite nice, there’s a lovely sheen to them and they shuffle nicely.  Thank you so very much to all of you out there for encouraging me to make them into a deck of cards. I would not have had the courage to do it without you!

This is what the backsides look like – I used some of my fav iconic imagery – flying hearts and spirals. It will probably take me at least a couple of weeks to receive the new order so in the meantime if you are interested in buying a deck of inspiration cards please e-mail me and put in the subject line: Inspiration cards. I’ll add you to the list and then contact you as soon as they come in.  There are 60 cards in the deck – if you’ve been following me for a while you will recognize many of the images I created for when i turned 60. Here is a grouping of some of the cartoons:

I fondly call the cartoons “uptoons” as they are meant to uplift you!

Here’s one of the cards in a holder on the fridge – i like to post images for inspiration and these square cards are perfect for that.

On Monday I’ll be having a Blog giveaway – this month is the 10th year i have been blogging.  So I’ll be giving away one set of Inspiration cards – so please stay tuned!

I will see you tomorrow – i have another fun project to share with you!

Love, Violette xo

I plan on selling some sets on my etsy site which has been dormant for quite a long time!

I added a band of colour to the side and an inspirational word to make them fit in the postcard format.

I’ll let you know when I get them up on my etsy store!

Enjoy the day – we have been having some lovely weather so I plan on getting out in the garden for a bit today!
