CCM Felt Hats Notecard Giveaway

While cleaning my studio this Spring, I found a stash of notecards featuring some of my freehand embroidery on felt:

Set of 4 glossy notecards featuring macro images of the free hand crewel embroidery of New Hampshire fiber artist, Carrie Cahill Mulligan.

Notecards measure 4″ x 5.5″ and come with matching envelopes ūüôā

They’re nice cards, on heavy, glossy paper. I was surprised to realize they’re a decade old, and that I’d been saving them… For what? ¬†What good are they to anyone buried in my desk.

(“Spend out!” I could hear Gretchen Rubin whispering in my ear…)

“I should give these away to CCM Felt Hat fans and supporters!” I immediately thought. So here we are…!
