.......the benevolence of postcards............

So, if I haven't told you yet...I'm a member of The Benevolent Postcard Society...This year we are all sending each other post cards once a month to ensure random acts of kindness. {oh so reminiscent of pen pals from far and exotic places in my childhood.....and collecting stamps.....and being genuinely happy}

Of Course, my postcards are coming with a little twist....and some giveaways!

Here's the Rules:

1.) 10 out of 12 of the postcards I send out will have written on the back one single word

2.) If you have received a postcard from me (first off...bravo! and...nice to meet you!), you are invited to guess the full sentence that the word on the back of your postcard fits into.

3.) If you guess correctly on your first guess (and tell me the image on the front of your postcard)...you get a free 5X5 print of your choice from my shop

4.) Just to add some extra benevolence in there...I'm going to add 20% off store purchases to everyone of the 10 who guesses at all.....(which makes for about 30% off if you're the 10th to comment on any post on this blog)

5.) If I have received a benevolent postcard from you, and you comment on this post, then you also receive 20% off!!! That's a possibility of 20 winners :)

  • this word....is part of a phrase from a Shakespearean play.
  • the sentence, is in iambic pentameter
  • the words may....or may not be in order
if you are one of the 2 people that have received a benevolent postcard from me, and it did not contain a single word on it.....the same contest applies....except this time it is a Beatles Song.....that the cards are referencing.

please include your e-mail in your comment on this post so I can let you know whether you won or not....without spoiling the surprise for everyone else.

Thanks, and Happy Benevolence!

I really hope I end up getting a postcard from you at some point. What a fabulously fun idea!

Wow! I just got your postcard, What a cool idea! My postcard (which was beautiful by the way) had a jester with a map for a face. My guess is "if music be the food of love then play on" from twelfth night. I hope i'm right but either way it was such a fun surprise to find this in my mailbox today! Thanks so much!
