Tahinitoo and Chirp Cards

I am not a card person.  I am not one to spend five dollars at a card store to buy a sappy, mass-produced card just so I can write "To" and "From" and call it a day.  I'd rather determine my own sentiment and write a personal wordy note or simply shop for a thoughtful gift.  But handmade cards?  That's a different story.


A while back (way too long ago by etiquette standards), tahinitoo blog offered a giveaway and I was lucky enough to win.  But this wasn't your ordinary blog contest for a food item, it was instead for a couple of this very talented lady's gorgeous, handmade cards.  It would seem that the blog's tagline, "a vegan food, adventure, craft, and photo blog" is for serious; the impressive bloggess really does do all these things!  In fact, she is a member of Vegan Etsy and even has her own Etsy store for her adorable Chirp Cards.

I was given the opportunity to choose from a selection of cards, but they really chose me.  One look and I instantly knew who the two recipients would be and chose accordingly.

A good friend (and apple lover) with whom I share recipes, techniques, and meals received this one with a wink.


And this adorableness went to, who else, but the esteemed Chef Adam of The Cinnamon Snail.


Besides being irresistable, these quality cards are meticulously handcrafted from edge to edge, front to back, side to side: not one solitary detail has been overlooked.


Buy them to share and make someone's day.  Get a few extra to frame and enjoy as artwork throughout your home.
