    um..yes – the giveaway expries MAY 18th – not March 18th! Thanks for the catch andy & rosie! That’s the 2nd time I’ve done that this month – I seriously need to start getting more sleep ;)

  11. Amber says:

    I’m crushing on the Happy Birthday card in orange – how fabulous to have classy cards that work for both guys or dames!

  12. Elle says:

    I love them all, but I love the “sorry” card most of all. I like apology cards in general, as it is bad enough to mistake but terrible not to apologize for it. I like this card, in particular, because the design is beautiful, but also because the tendrils emanating from the brown bar look so tentative, like an apology should be.

  13. Heather says:

    Whoops! I may have hit post too early and left a blank– but only because I was so enamored with these designs! The blue is out of this world. And my new year’s resolution was to get organized!

  14. candis hecking says:

    I love the box sets. It’s so great when you have nice cards at home and you can just choose from your collection.

  15. patty says:

    oh my gosh this stuff is gorgeous! I love the thank you card with the orange scrolls!

  16. Charlotte N. says:

    Oh, I could never pick just *one* favorite…that’s why I need the card file!

  17. lorenzstudio says:

    The adorable “Get Well” card would cheer up anyone’s day!

  18. Lisa M. says:

    I’m loving the sorry card. Just lovely.

  19. RenaissanceGrrl says:

    Love the Robbins Egg Blue and would be such a fun gift for “moi” the girl going to settlement on her first home in 16 days.

  20. Wanderluster... says:

    I’m getting married in August and my colours are chartreuse and chocolate brown. The chartreuse fresh style card file would be perfect way to get me started on those Thank You notes!

  21. kaskade says:

    I love the robin’s egg blue…those colors were vetoed as wedding colors, so if I had the stationary I could still pretend I won that debate!

  22. Shannon says:

    I really dig the “with love” card, but I really love them all! Really beautiful design. Fingers triple-crossed!

  23. Kyle Koerner says:

    very cute! I have seen this company at the Atlanta gift show!

  24. MissChris says:

    My absolute favorite is the “with love” card but if I was being honest, I love all of the designs.

  25. K says:

    I love them all and any would be much appreciated since I’m getting married next year! :)

  26. kelli says:

    “sorry…” is my pick. you need an especially pretty/cool card when there’s reason enough to document a “sorry.”

  27. Jenmomof4 says:

    I love the yellow and brown Happy Birthday cards!1 What a great combination! I am doing good mail over at my blog and have been sending things out all over the country!! This would be great to add to my collection.

  28. Anonymous says:

    The “With Love” card is my favorite! – Diana H.

  29. Alexandra says:

    I love the first Thank You note – its whimsical, airy and classy, the perfect way to say “thank you” this spring.

  30. Karen says:

    i absolutely ADORE the postage stamps!

  31. Kristen says:

    OMG! These are gorgeous!

  32. lace says:

    I love cards! My favorite is the With Love card.

  33. marti says:

    the blue and green thank you card is beautiful

  34. Daria Chacon says:

    The whole CardFile is brilliant – I know this is dorky but I refuse to choose. I bought one for myself, then as soon as I got it bought another for my high-powered, too-rich lawyer-friend-who-has-everything (she loved it – and she didn’t have one of those!) and a third as a graduation present. Beautiful!

  35. Anonymous says:

    I love the thank you cards!

  36. mhthorpe says:

    I love this whole collection and am thrilled that it’s available. So thrilled, I purchased some immediately.
    Very exciting new paper!

  37. Johanna Troupe says:

    I don’t think thatI could pick just one, I like them all so much.

  38. lissa lou says:

    These are beautiful. I love the the letterpress Thank You’s (orange and green ones)

  39. Jonathan says:

    So hard to decide! But if I absolutely had to choose one, I’d pick out the brown and blue striped happy brithday card. Its my favorite color combination.

  40. Tami H says:

    Holy gorgeousness! There is no way I’m able to choose a favorite. Just can’t do it. But I will say the robin’s egg card file is my favorite…and what a fab gift that would make!
