Launch of card site and a possible prize!

We at the farm would like to make a BIG announcement!!

As a direct result of the fun I have had on this blog, and the fabulous support and encouragement i have received, I started producing my own cards. I have previewed these many times on the blog.

This little hobby is now rather larger, I'm retailing them around the district and doing regular markets. it has been tricky to show the whole range for those interested so it now has it's own blogspot,

http://countrycards-tracey.blogspot.com/

If you click on this link you can check out the whole 125!!!

As a little taste of what you will see, I have included a few here.

I have no intention of these becoming what the blog is about, other than a link in the sidebar you wont hear much after next week, but it wouldn't be a real launch if there was not a competition. You know I love them!! So pop over to visit and come back and tell me your TOP 5 in these comments. The cards are all numbered so you just need to give the numbers...comments are most welcome as well!! There will be a number of packs of 8 cards, with complimentary gift cards, to win...your choice of card. Winners will be chosen at random by my junior assistants!

As an added launch week bonus, Choose 9 cards at $2 each and I will post them and your complimentary gift cards for only an extra $2 to you anywhere in the world. ..And we are talking Australian dollars people!! Any quantities can be mailed, with deals available for higher quantities....just email me regarding your order.

Competition closes Wednesday, 8th July.

Have fun choosing! Tracey

Michele's Quilting Journey said...

Beautiful, beautiful cards! Picking favorites was far too hard. For the contest's sake I choose #'s 11,29,33,36,37. And I truly would love to buy some if I can figure out how to pay for them. Would you take a U.S. check written in American $ ;) I will do that by email since choosing might get even harder!!!!!

Bunny said...

Cascade Lily said...

Congrats on your new venture Tracey! My faves are 20, 48, 49, 52, 58.

I like the emotive scenery ones apparently!

Calidore said...

Tracey - your cards are absolutely stunning. Well done. I'm sure they are going to be an even bigger success than they are already. Gosh it's hard to only pick five - they are all so good but in the end I narrowed it down to 32, 44, 58, 61 and 113 - cause I think that one truly sums up life on the land.

Gina said...

No fair, I can't choose just 5, they are all fabulous. so I'll go with my top 7
6. mountain tractor view
8. lightening verse
32. that sucks
56. chick on calf
65. lift your eyes
88. lamb and mountains
124 cow sunset

And all the cute calf and quilt ones. Told you I couldn't choose.

Anyway if your assistants pick me for the prize then it may go someway to forgiving you for hammering us in the Ashes. Yes I know it hasn't started yet but I've got a baaaad feeling about the series. Can you believe they are playing the first match 10 miles down the road from me and I can't go because I'm going on holiday. Talk about bad timing.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Oh good on you, what a fabulous venture, and something you enjoy. You have such a knack for the perfect photograph and nothing like what you can get in the stores. Bravo.
