The Coloring Book of Cards and Envelopes: Summertime - Review and Giveaway

I received product for review from Candlewick Press.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Book Overview:

Get creative with this innovative coloring book full of beautifully designed cards and envelopes to tear out and color. The twenty-four summertime designs include seashells, flowers, dragonflies, and more and are perfect for all ages to decorate and send or give to family and friends. Take inspiration from nature, or experiment with unusual colors and different materials to make each card truly unique! With enough blank space inside for a message, envelopes to customize, and cute stickers to seal them, this is the complete creative package.

My Review:

I know that technology allows us to communicate quickly, but sometimes it's nice to receive snail mail.  When I receive a card or letter in the mail, it brightens my day.  The Coloring Book of Cards and Envelopes: Summertime is a way to express your creative side, and show it to others.

Each page is made with high quality stock paper.  There are 24 cards and envelopes to color, and 24 stickers to seal the envelopes.  Instructions in front of the book show how to properly fold the cards and envelopes.  It's fairly easy, but younger children may need assistance.  The pages are perforated and tear out easily.  For each card, there is a "Colored for you by..." placement and there's enough white space to write a small message.  Gel pens, coloring pencils, and markers can be used on the paper and they more than likely won't bleed through.  Due to the thickness of the paper, I've been able to use whatever desired writing utensils that I want.  I've colored a couple of the cards and envelopes, and have sent them off to let others know I'm thinking of them.


Win It!

One person will win The Coloring Book of Cards and Envelopes: Summertime.

I have had a few friends from my hometown come and visit! It's been almost 2 years since I have moved from Ohio to Oregon, so it was so wonderful to have a piece of home for just a little bit.
