Hello all you lucky folks out there! This is the 33rd edition of our Lucky Friday Giveaway! Each Friday we feature one of our letterpress cards. We’ll choose THREE LUCKY WINNERS to get a free card. Post a comment by 12 p.m. PST the following Thursday, and we’ll announce the winners on the following Friday!
The three winners from last week are (drum roll, please):
Ruth, Sara and Wolfie!
We’ll contact you next week to arrange sending your Going Places card!
Now for this week’s spooky selection:
Design: Skeleton Fiesta
Artist: Eunice Moyle
Inspiration: Cleaning a closet full of vintage souvenirs we found some spooky sugar skulls and thought we ought not just let our calaveras out of the closet, but give them maracas and let them party!
Who to send it to: Any guy, ghoul or witch with whom you have a funny bone to pick.
Ideas we scrapped in favor of this one: An archaeology-themed romantic Halloween card reading “I Dig Your Bones” gave us the shudders, and our “Happy Howl- a-Ween” card with an “Owl-len Ginsberg” cartoon reading from HOWL— never mind— forget we ever said that.
Favorite detail: The fact that the itsy-bitsy spider is depicted with all 28375764 of its eyes makes us cringe with ghoulish glee.
Why letterpress? Nothing else could quite capture all the crisply creepy detail.
