    As a mother of 2, working full time – I haven’t sent out a Christmas Card in 2-3 years. With our big 200+ mailing list – it is quite a task.

    So…if I won, I would LOVE to send these as our 2009 Christmas Cards:

    Pick me! Pick me! :)

    I like the hummingbird birthday invites :)

    I would get the ‘White Accent Butterfly Birth Announcement’ and use them for a different purpose than what’s intended. I would use these as Thank You cards for companies who have sponsored giveaways on my blog, Ascending Butterfly! Since these have a butterfly they’d be perfect for that purpose!

  13. Elizabeth says:

    I would order one of the custom photo cards to use as Christmas cards with a photo of my husband’s homecoming from Afghanistan in November on the front. With this being his first deployment, what better way would there be to tell people John is home safe and sound and Merry Christmas at the same time?

  14. Brandy says:
