GIVEAWAY: Ashley Brooke Designs

A few weeks back, I told you just how smitten I was with Ashley Brooke Designs. The sweet girls at ABD and I have been emailing back and forth over the past few weeks, and I am so happy to finally share what they have been working on. I love custom stationary, but the girls at ABD take it to a whole different level. They asked me to put together a style board for myself and Tilley-Gray so that they could create a custom illustration for my new stationary. It turned out better than I could have ever imagined. 

What I love most about this is that I'll be able to show Tilley-Gray this sketch when she is older. When I showed it to my mom, she said it reminded her of the paper dolls that I played with when I was little. When I opened up their email, I was standing in line at Target and literally squealed loud enough that people around me started staring. I think it was worth the squeal, don't you?


I can't wait to send these cards out to my friends and family. I've been putting off writing thank-you notes for a few weeks because I want to wait until these come in. I'm saving a few for myself and will more than likely add one to our gallery wall in a pretty frame. 

This is one of my favorite gifts I have ever been given, which is why I am so thrilled that Ashley Brooke Designs is giving one lucky reader a custom illustration and 25 note cards. Here is how you enter: 

1. "Like" Ashley Brooke Designs on Facebook and follow them on twitter.  
Let them know how darling you think they are!
2. "Like" Poplin & Queen (my new business) on Facebook and follow us on twitter
Big things are coming up that you don't want to miss. 
3. Follow Fifi Cheek and leave a comment telling me how you will use your new stationary!
Giveaway ends Monday, June 11th.

PS: This is my 500th blog post. Thanks so much for reading and for all of your support!
xoxo

  58. I have never seen stationary that is as cute as this! I would love to have a set of myself, the husband and the pup on them. I have been searching for just the right stationary for us as a married couple (7 months now), but I have been a little indecisive. This is just so unique and perfect!

    I am embarrassed to say that I just now added myself as an "official follower" of your blog, even though I check it daily! I also liked Poplin & Queen on Facebook. Congrats on the new business!

    PS ~ I would have totally squealed too!
