What an amazing day! Thank you all for stopping by and joining in on all the fun - this was the biggest and best blog party to date and I'm so happy we got to share it with you! We have two more cards to inspire you for the night! They were also made by Kristin Hayne and she used our Special Delivery Gift Tags! I love this idea of using a gift tag on the card, such a fun and customized idea!
We also have SEVEN winners to announce from today! The number corresponds to the blog post you won and the winners are as follows:
#4: Holly Harris via email
#6: Grace Palazzolo via email
#7: Julie Campbell
Congrats everyone! Please email me your address, along with the number of post you won and we'll get your prizes out asap!
There is still another chance to win, though! We are very excited to announce our final contest of the night! We, with your help, would love to help out Operation Write Home (previously known as Cards for Heroes)!
They are an amazing organization that gathers cards and sends them to our troops so our troops can write home to their loved ones! Finding cards and even stationary is sometimes impossible for our deployed men and women, so these cards mean the world to them! With help from people like you, Operation Write Home has currently sent over 204,000 cards to our deployed heroes! That is truly amazing!!
You will receive one entry in our contest for every card you send in to "Operation Write Home", using our packing slip, by October 26th! For example, if you send in 5 cards, you'll get 5 entries into our drawing!
Very important, you have to send them in with our special our packing slip, NO GLITTER can be used on the card and they must be postmarked by October 26th! You can go to their website to learn what sizes of cards work best and other tips like what theme of cards they are looking for. And, if you can, it really helps to include a couple extra dollars in the package to help them pay for postage for shipping the cards overseas.
We will be drawing three winners from the entries in November and the amazing prizes are as follows:
$75 Gift Certificate to our store!
$50 Gift Certificate to our store!
$25 Gift Certificate to our store!
All winners will be notified by email in November! And, remember: EVERY CARD COUNTS! Even if you can only make one card, that card will touch at least two peoples lives, the sender and the receiver(s)!
Thanks so much for making today an amazing one!
