Rudolph's Gift Guide Day 12: Sklunk Cards Review & Giveaway!

**Contest Closed**
Suzanne lives in the quaint seaside town of Portsmouth, NH where she enjoys walking, running and spending time with friends and hanging out with her cats Hannah & Olive. This lovely lady has multiple talents. She used to work as a journalist and prosecutor, but now spends her days training attorneys on using legal software. On off hours she enjoys tapping in to her creative side by writing, drawing, painting, dancing, acting, and creating the cutest custom cards that she sells on Etsy in her boutique, Sklunk.

One of my favorite gifts to give and receive are personalized stationary, which is why I love the Preppy Polkadot cards. The Turtle Notecards are adorable, too. There are quite a few creative designs available in Sklunk that would make wonderful Christmas gifts.

As you may remember from previous posts, my daughter's very first birthday party is approaching. I can't believe it is just over a month away - yikes! The Ducky Thank You Cards in Sklunk caught my eye, so I asked Suzanne if she'd be willing to customize the design for me. My idea was to insert an image of a cupcake in place of the 'O' in the word 'You', and have the words 'Love, Emma" at the base of the card. This is the result:
The cards and matching envelopes arrived beautifully packaged with a ribbon and she even included a cute little gel pen! I prefer to handwrite thank you cards, but having them pre-signed will make it that much easier on me. It makes it extra special that I sort of co-designed them too! I love Etsy sellers that are willing to do custom orders.

Do you love this shop, too? BUY IT! Receive 15% off now through December 1st! Send Suzanne a convo and mention code: pennypinch.

WIN IT! Win a set of custom cards from Sklunk! (U.S. Only)

  1. Ooooh, cute stuff! I love the personalized thank you idea, it's great for kids who aren't really going to be writing their name anyway.

    I like the Customized Initial or Name Stationery, simple and fun!
