Christmas Cards Giveaway

Today's post and giveaway are sponsored by the sweet people at Cardstore.com.


I go through phases when it comes to mailing Christmas cards. Some years I am all about the cards ('bout the cards, not tinsel) and other years... meh. Not so much.

Is it weird for an un-married gal to send out Christmas cards? Should I spend the time and money on them when they will just get thrown away after the new year (unless you are card a hoarder like me)? Do people even want my Christmas card?

But there is something really fun about designing your own Christmas card that makes them so much more interesting than a generic store-bought pack of red and green cards with "Ho Ho Ho" embossed in gold. And in my case, I get to use a pretty photo I took of my favorite ornament on my Christmas tree!

I really enjoyed using the Cardstore site to experiment with a couple designs. Want to know what I thought was awesome? I didn't have to create an account to test out the designs. That's right... they want you to be able to import your photo and check it out without having to take the time to create and account!

Here are some of my favorites:



While I was playing around with all the different templates and struggling to decide which one was "just right" I noticed a fun contest on the site:  Candid Christmas Cards. They want your wacky, imperfect, photo shoot bloopers and crying babies!

The grand prize winner will receive a $1,500 Visa gift card to put towards a holiday trip, a Nikon CoolPix camera, and free Cardstore Christmas cards.

You bet your booty I submitted a photo!!! $1,500 to spend on a vacation, heck yes!!! I submitted a photo of Houston from last Christmas with Christmas lights on his cowboy hat.

The content ends this Wednesday, so be sure to submit your own photo before then. Don't want to submit a photo? Then go vote for my Christmas Cowboy here. (Thanks in advance).

Now, lucky for you, Cardstore wants to help YOU with your Christmas card shopping.  One lucky person will win 50 free Christmas cards from Cardstore.com! Just enter in the rafflecopter below and a winner we be chosen at random on Friday (12/5/14)! As always, be honest with your entries as they will be verified.

The holidays are upon us, friends.  So take some time to drink some cocoa, snuggle in cozy blankets and spread some Christmas cheer.

  6. I don't think it's weird for an unmarried girl to send Christmas cards. I'm not married, until the 29th, but I've always sent Christmas cards!
