Print-tastic Giveaway


I love giveaways and it has been a long time since our last one, but good news…we have not one but TWO giveaways that will start this week! The first is from Lori Portka, who has generously provided a signed and matted print entitled Sunrise and a one of a kind, greeting card with original artwork. They look even better in person. We will have two winners for this giveaway, since there are two prizes: first place gets the print. Second gets the original art greeting card.

But really everyone is a winner here because in addition to the giveaway, Lori is offering a free set of 5×7 greeting cardsย with any purchase in her shop between now and the 15th. Just mention papernstitch at checkout!


How do you enter the giveaway?

There are several ways to play this time and you may enter up to three times. First, visit Lori Portka’s website and browse around for your favorites, then come back here and tell us which ones you like most. Second way to play, answer this question in the comments: what is your favorite part of the day (sunrise, mid-day, sunset, etc) and why? Third, twitter or blog about this giveaway or Lori’s work and leave a link in the comments here.

The giveaway will end on September 15th at 11:59 pm eastern time.

these are gorgeous, i particularly like the love bird!


i love the time when i first wake up the best. i wouldn’t dare call it sunrise haha because i work mostly nights but i feel so productive and bursting with plans for the day and the energy to get things done.

beautiful work Lori, by the way


I like very much sweet cow.:-) But others are lovely too… vermont, flowers, bluebirds etc. Thanks.


I really liked the Dancing in Peru print, it would look great with the Southwest and Central American goodies I have in my living room! The colors are just so vibrant in all of her art, and they all go so well together!

My favorite time of day is the sunset, even though I know night will be here soon the sky is sometimes ablaze with colors reds, yellows, oranges depending on what time of year it is. In Maine the sunsets don’t get as colorful as other parts of the country, but they are still pretty.

Sunrise is my favorite part of the day, because the day is still stretched out in front of me like a blank page, ready to be filled with the colors and words of new experiences and interactions.


I love sunrise, mid-day and sunset and night. Sunrise gives you an energy for a day (mid-day, evening, night), mid-day is the time when everything is clear and in its full potencial. Evening is the time when you give a sense to your day, your meditation time. And I love night because miracle happens, time, when you think that your dreams will come true.


Hi there…I am new to Lori’s work and blog but I am so glad we crossed paths because she’s so lovely and I also love her bright colours and the positive energy that emits from her images so a chance to win something of hers can not be passed up:D I espeacially love her piece found in the etsy shop called “Follow Your Heart”…beautiful. Keep it up Lori and Good Luck:D Mandy Saile of Bijou’s Whimsy

I think that favorite time of day is evening with beautiful sunset


I like all cards – these are so beautiful


I can’t decide whether my favourite print is Bluebirds or Boo and Sidney. They are both so lively and sweet and bring a smile to my face. I love Lori’s colours.


My favorite part of the day comes after midnight. As a night owl, I appreciate the dark silence as I stitch or paint, uninterrupted by the telephone or guests.


Gorgeous prints! My favorite is Peaceful Girl in the Travelling Adventures series. It has such a natural, serene feeling.


Sunrise!!! You know that a new day is here!!! Then the day will be as bright as Lori!

Brittni, thank you! This is so exciting- my first official giveaway ๐Ÿ™‚


I love the “see love” print.


My favorite part of the day is sunrise. It’s the start of a new day and that means it’s a start of a productive day doing what I love to do as my full-time job. ๐Ÿ™‚ Lori’s prints are absolutely gorgeous –remind me of a beautiful day is to come. ๐Ÿ™‚


Sunset is definitely my favorite part of day. Things naturally feel calmer and the pressure to be productive wanes while the desire to hang with my lovelies heightens. I am reminded, however, about how much I love the sunrise, when I actually see it, when I look at Lori’s print above.

Oh, I LOVE Loris work! There are so many beautiful prints in her shop… I especially love the yoga collection – particularly the Follow Your Heart. Amazing!
And my very favorite part of the day is evening, after dinner. The two-year old is playing with his beloved Papa, I’m nursing the two month old… it’s the moment I’ve been dreaming about since we found out that we were expecting baby number two. ๐Ÿ™‚


What a lovely giveaway my fingers are crossed I would love to win. I love love and kindness from the nature series sooo pretty and colorfull.Thanks for the great giveaway.Helen
