Minted Holiday Card Giveaway

November 27, 2011


WINNER UPDATE! Two winners have been randomly chosen!  Kierstan @ Live {and running} in Iowa, and Kelly W. You both win win win!  Thank you to Minted for the awesome giveaway, and thank you to YOU for being a part of my blog, and making my internet life so awesome.  I appreciate you!

I love what happens to my mailbox this time of year!  It sills with beautifully designed holiday cards.  There are pictures.  There are warm greetings with happy wishes.

I chose these Year in Review Holiday Cards from Minted.  I don’t have a baby.  No biggie.  Minted still helped me make an awesome card!One of my absolute favorite stationary companies is Minted.  I love their photo holiday cards!  There are options for days, and lots of cute ways to customize your cards.  This totally sounds like a commercial, right?  Well… here’s some real talk.  I love Minted because they have tons of options for all sorts of life and holiday situations.  I don’t feel like I need a darling baby or a fiance to make and send holiday cards.  I can make cards with a holiday greeting from just little-ole-me.  Holiday greetings from babies and engaged couples are always cute.  It takes a special touch to make my bonkers life looks holiday worthy.  Thank you Minted!

Minted has holiday love for two lucky readers.  Minted would like to offer two of you a set of 50 customizable photo holiday cards. Your photo.  Cute colors.  Envelopes and return address labels.  How wonderful is this!?

Leave a comment on this post from now until Tuesday, November 29th at midnight pst.  Tell me what you’re looking forward to this holiday season.  Winners will be chosen at random, and will be announced on Wednesday, November 30th.

Check out Minted for some gorgeous holiday cards and some pretty amazing CyberMonday deals.  They’re special.  Let them make something special for you.
