hallmark card




I won something! I entered a contest at Hallmark and was one of 19 winners in their Christmas card competition. We were to create a Christmas card inspired by any of these words: wish, peace, fruitcake, ho ho ho or joy. I chose Ho Ho Ho, but as you can see, I had the kitty saying Whoa, instead of Ho, as he starts to fall off Santa's head!

You can actually go to Hallmark.com and buy my card online! How cool is that! If you're interested - once you get to Hallmark.com, click on Paper Cards, then Cards, then Contest Winners, Holidays, then Christmas. Scroll down and you'll find my card.

There's even a chance my card could be sold in their stores, as well as online. I'll know more about that next month. Wish me luck!
