Glad Tidings

The fact that November is a few days away has me reeling a tad. How can it be? It seems like I just packed up the Christmas decorations from last year. But no time to fret. Time to get ready for jingle bells and roasting chestnuts on an open fire.

Last holiday season was a little hit and miss for me. Quite random indeed. Among other things, I flopped with sending out Christmas cards. But this year, things are gonna be different. For starters I’m making a smaller list, streamline expectations altogether. But I am sending out Christmas cards.

And, get this, they’re already done. It’s just short of a Christmas miracle y’all!

When I was contacted by Cardstore.com to see if I’d like to try out their online greeting cards, I jumped at the chance to check Christmas cards off my list before the holiday madness kicked in. Cardstore.com has a great selection of greeting cards for all occasions. I quickly zoned in on the photo Christmas cards and started the simple ordering process. It was a breeze.

Well, almost. Taking a picture of my kids ranked up there with cleaning the grout in my shower. But they survived. And so did I. Kinda. Sorta.

When the package arrived a few days later, I let out a sigh of relief. Christmas cards? Check.

And I think they turned out pretty doggone cute.

 

And look what was in the cute little box…

Gift tags. Cool.

They’ll certainly come in handy.

Both sets of cards were printed on recycled paper with a matte finish. That’s another thing I like about Cardstore.com. Not only are their products stylish and hip, but they’re eco-concious too. Plus the turnaround time was quick.

And guess what? You get the chance to check something off your holiday list too. Cardstore.com has generously offered a $50 shopping code for use on their site for one (1) winner. Yep, a giveaway.
