Well, the winter months are settling in, and before we all run out of time (and money), I thought we could have a bit of Holiday cheer. I wanted a fun way to give my heartfelt *Thanks* to all of you loyal readers that have made the past year a blessing. How do you feel about a Holiday CardSwap?
The Art of the Handwritten Note has gone by the way-side, what with email and all, but I think getting a handwritten card is underrated! There is something special, something personal about how the card is selected, or the message that is written, for your eyes only. Funny cards, artistic cards, religious cards, inspirational cards. So many cards, so little time! And I especially love cards around the holiday season. The glitzier and sparkly-er the better!
So, here is what I am proposing.
If you are interested in giving and receiving a Holiday Card, leave a comment on this post, then email me your name and address. I will send you a Holiday Card. When you receive mine, you can return the favor, and send one back to me. All cards that I receive ( oh, the more the merrier) will go into a drawing, and I will pick a winner that will receive a little holiday gift from moi. I may throw in some awards for the funniest, cutest or most creative card. I will also be sharing pictures of all the treasured cards received, so it will be a Holiday feast for the eyes when we are done!
So, what do you think? In the mood for a little card swappin? I’ll throw you a little helpful hint for two of my favorite wintery characters during the Holidays….Penguins & Snowman! They both melt my heart!
