FOLKSY FRIDAY - Clarkie Designs Review & Giveaway

It's Friday, so it's time for another Folksy giveaway.

Last week, I introduced you to the fabulous Colour Me Fun and ran a giveaway for a set of 8 of their crayons.  Well done to the winner - Tiffany O.  your crayons will be with you shortly.  for those of you who didn't win and NEED crayons in the shape of cool stuff in your lives, check out the Colour Me Fun Folksy shop here: http://folksy.com/shops/ColourMeFun

This week, I'm featuring Clarkie Designs, run by designer, Emma Rogerson, who started out designing prints for her own children's bedrooms when she couldn't find any art that she liked for them.  The result is her shop full of child friendly prints and cards, many of which can be personalised.

Look at this cute personalised penguin card:


And this space wall art:


And (my personal favourite) a card that children can colour in themselves before giving:


I received these 2 cards to review:


I chose them for people I know who have birthdays coming up so they could be personalised.  They're great cards - the printing is very clear and the colours bright and fresh.  They're priced at between £2.25 and £2.45 which I think is a good price for a personalised card like these.  I chose the space invaders design for my brother, who is a games designer and the colour-it-yourself one for Rory's friend Eve, who loves to draw and colour (Rory is a bit crap at colouring in - if your child is equally cack handed, you could always include a little packet of coloured pencils or crayons in the card for the recipient so they can colour it themselves, which is what I think I'll do in this case).  Unfortunately, their birthdays aren't until after Christmas so I can't tell you what they think of them, but I'm sure they'll be suitably impressed.

On to the giveaway.  The winner will get to choose 3 personalised cards from Clarkie Designs of their choice.  Just complete the Rafflecopter form below for your chance to win. Please don't cheat and say you've fulfilled conditions when you haven't as I do check!  Good luck everybody.
