LMNOP ~ my first sponsor

Hi blog friends!
Guess what?
I have a sweet giveaway for you today, compliments of LMNOP by Me, a new blog sponsor.
Cool, huh?

It's funny how these things happen. A former co-worker-turned-Facebook-friend has an aunt who makes these adorable cards and was looking for ways to promote them. I basically said, "OOOOhh!!! Pick me! Pick me!" and she did. Without further ado, I give you Kimberly of LMNOP by Me.

A little bit about Kimberly

"For as long as I can remember, I've loved color - lots and lots of color! I was the kid who got in trouble for decorating the hall walls with crayons. I loved the color of the sky, the color of bugs and, if I thought there wasn't enough color, I would add more - like green food coloring to chocolate chip cookies. To use the colors that I loved, I stated drawing so that I could fill in the lines with all sorts of magical colors provided in paints, magic markers, and crayons.

The Watercolor Stem Series was born of my fascination with watercolors. There are so many different hues to choose from! Be still my foolish heart!

Alone on a wooden deck overlooking a bay in Port Townsend, Washington, I began playing with my watercolor sets. I had seen a painting of flowers in a field earlier that day in an art gallery and thought it was "nice" but if I were to paint it I would have the flower stems bloom with more than just flowers. Why would you want to limit anything's possibilities? It's just the way my head works.

These cards are a little different than the average card because they are designed both on the front and the back of the card. This is for two reasons: 1) I think you should be able to enjoy a card from all sides, and 2) why should you waste the back of a perfectly good canvas?"

Thanks, Kimberly! It's so nice to meet you.
You can see more of Kimberly's adorable designs on her website.

Now for the giveaway. :o)
Kimberly has given me a generous selection of her adorable cards to giveaway on my blog. For this first round, I'll be giving four of her cards to two lucky people. Just leave a comment on my blog (or on the Facebook's PaperTurtle status update) and I'll put you in the drawing. I'll announce the lucky winners next Thursday {June 14, 2012}. Good luck!
