Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!

 Welcome to Show and Tell Friday! This week I'm sharing a business card holder I bought at Vintage and Vogue in downtown Campbell, California.  Isn't it pretty? I just love it!
 I bought it to hold my blog business cards. Does anyone else have cards for their blog? I found so many times when I was out and about I would talk about my blog and someone would ask for the web address. It's so much easier to pull out a card than write it all out! It also looks more professional!

I ordered these cards online at Moo.com  Their business cards are double sided and amazing but for some reason this time they came out a little pink which makes the blue background look lavender. Oh well, I guess I can live with that!























I have my boring business cards for my 9-5 job behind the pretty blog business cards! haha!

***************

This is my second post today so scroll down if you haven't seen that one. It's my newest passion!

I don't have cards, but I really should get some. As you said, having the cards would look more professional and would just plain be easier than writing it down for people. Your cards and holder are both very pretty.

You know I put my blog on my business card, but I have been wanting to have separate card for just the blog. Your card holder is magnifique!

Shirley said...

I love you blog cards. Yes, I have cards too but they were free and they are just one sided and sort of cheap looking. (real cheap . . . free!) I may look up this moo.com.

Shirley said...

This is a P.S.!! I LOVE you card holder. Beautiful!!

Elsie said...

Love your business cards Cindy.
Those are so pretty. I really
love your holder, that is really
beautiful. That is a good idea
to carry cards so you don't have
to write all that down. Smart
girl. Hope you and Lauren have
a good weekend.

Grandma Nina said...

I love the vintage card holder. I never thought about having blog business cards, but such a good idea. So much classier than scribbling my blog address on a scrap of paper for someone.

~Becca~Bluebird Rose said...

Lovely holder and pretty cards too!

I featured your pretty button heart you made (that I won from you) on my blog today; stop by if you can and take a look!

Judy said...

That is the most beautiful card case. What a great idea to make up cards for your blog. I never thought about that. I have business cards for my career as an attorney, but I could make much prettier cards for my blog. Thanks so much for hosting.

Donna said...

How pretty Cindy! I would love to have a lovely business card holder like that for my blog cards. My blog isn't a business, but I love to introduce friends to it and made cards to make sharing the address easy.

Yours is the most gorgeous one I've ever seen! You must feel 'special' handing out cards from that case. :o)

Thanks so much for dropping by. I really do appreciate you hosting this party for all of us.

Maggie said...

I've often thought that I should have blog business cards in my handbag for those times when someone asks for the blogaddress, yours are so pretty and the card holder is wonderful.
I love the fleur de lys symbol on just about anything!

Wow, stunning card holder, very nice indeed. I too have cards for my blogs as its easier than writing it out and gives them a taste of what to expect.I'll have to keep my eyes open for something nice to carry them in, right now they have an elastic band holding them together in my purse.
