I know it's only November 2, but I also know that many of you are like me and you're probably already planning for those holiday cards, right? And if you're like me, you're also planning on ways to BUDGET this Christmas but how can you possibly budget out cute holiday cards? I know I can't. I get a kick out of mailing them and then of seeing them displayed on people's fridges, walls, and mantels.
So, of course, when I jumped at the chance to giveaway a $50 gift card to Photo Card Creations (oh, this is one of those giveaways I wish I could win myself!). I'm kind of swooning over their unique selections, especially the die cut shaped cards . The scalloped edges made my eyes happy at first, and then I read on that you can order them with a punched hole and silver string so that (this is seriously so fun) they can be used as ornaments. I am, unfortunately, not a very creative person, so making ornaments for people is out of the question, but I know that we have so many relatives who would love a photo ornament of the boys. I'm also a huge fan of the folded Christmas cards that leave room for more than one photo (you might remember that they made Tommy's thank you cards ) and they have a great range of Hanukkah cards , as well. They also have Happy New Year's cards , which is an idea that I love. Last year, we sent out happy new year's cards post-holidays and it's something I plan to do again. After the holiday rush of cards and presents in your mailbox every day, the mail feels a little lonely when January rolls around, so what perfect way to brighten up someone's day than a simple wish for a happy 2011? I like these, too, because they're non-denominational.
Take a few minutes, check out their website, and let me know what your favorite card is. Personally, I'm loving the simplicity of this card and I'm thinking it might just be perfect for our family this season. Comments will remain open until Friday, November 5th, when I'll choose a winner for the $50 gift card via random.org. Good luck!
