Giveaway! Fresh Off the Press Valentine

Alrighty, here you go! Isn't it cute? Ashley and I spent a few hours at the printing lab on Saturday where I thought up and whipped out this project while we were there. Usually it takes quite awhile to set your type, but since the font size was so large overall, it went together in just under 30 minutes.

The image {just the pink} is roughly 5.5x4.5 so it would fit nicely into a 5x7 frame, or look fantastic in an 8x10 with some cuter-than-cute scrapbooky paper or fabric behind it.

The image says 'all you need is love' with two pairs of 'xo' in there. It's this gorgeously vibrant pink - not quite fuchsia, not quite florescent pink - printed on chipboard. I'm too lazy to run downstairs and measure the overall size of the chipboard. It's 5.5x8.5" overall.

It would also make a lovely addition to a project collage; cut it down and you can add it to a 12x12 layout or use the bare space to make your own valentine project, or write on the back and send it to your beau as is. Either way, I'm pretty much in love with it.

I really love letterpress because the image is tangible--it cries out for you to feel its gorgeous texture.

All you have to do is comment and make sure there's a way I can contact you if you win.

Comments will close on Thursday, Feb. 4th, that way I can get it in the mail by Friday! {I'll ship it ANYWHERE}

Thanks for reading and supporting my habit!

*I'm throwing in a little extra set of Thank You notes, too! You'll lover them.

We have a winner! selected #2 - which is Megan!
