    I love the “get well” and the “with love” cards!

  2. Biddy says:

    such a hard choice because i love them all! if i HAVE to pick just one though, it would be the blue card with brown “get well” message……yeah…that’s the one…i think… :-)

  3. dubya says:

    AHHH I am obsessed with these! Such a smart idea that card file! If I had to pick my favorite would be ummm… the pumpkin & brown card that says “with love” To me it looks like a branch from a Dogwood tree with hearts as the petals. How great!

  6. Ricki says:

    All of these cards are great, but if I had to pick my favorite, it would be the Thank You card with the brown bottom and blue leafy thing.

  30. Bellydancingknitter says:

    the birthday stripes I like.

  31. abbey says:

    The get well cards are soo cute.

  32. lupinbunny says:

    The white happy birthday card with the blue floral design coming from the lower left corner. With the get well card that has the blue geometric floral and the chocolate bud/ fleur de lys thing a close second.

    can you tell that i’m really hoping to win the chocolate and blue recipe file? ;) baby blue and cocoa is where it’s at right now for me.

  33. Violet says:

    Wow what a great idea, all the colors are lovely although I really like the blue robin’s egg.

  34. Dana says:

    My birthday is in 9 days and I would LOVE to receive the chartreuse and brown birthday card! It is just so retro indulgent to me! Being able to keep the funky box out for easy access means my postman will be working double duty with my outgoing mail!

  35. jill says:

    oooh! i like the robins egg blue the best! but they are all pretty.

  36. Ashley says:

    They’re all absolutely fantastic! I’d have to go for the “miss you.” Lovely. :)

    they are all darling- can’t pick a fave!

  39. Kendra says:

    I love the design of the Sorry card, but wish it had different text.

  40. julia d says:

    I like all the designs — so hard to choose. But I really love the card folder box and the stamps. Wish I had the ability to print them out!
