Merry Christmas Monday!


Thank you Kelly.

MONDAY!


Okay it is not even Thanksgiving yet - I know, but I have a giveaway I need to give away before Christmas so that you can use it before Christmas!!!

This nice lady name Gina, from Hallmark, and we all love Hallmark, sent me an email and asked if I would like some beautiful Hallmark cards and samples of their new cards for this season.  Of course being brilliant I said yes.  Then she asked would I like a sample box for one of my bloggers and being really brilliant here I said YES!

I have some photos and a less than 2 minute video you can look at and see if you would be interested.




Let's make this easy:
If you are a follower and are interesting in playing then tell me your interested.
If you are a follower and are not interested in playing then tell me your not interested.
I'll keep this open until November 26th - Thanksgiving will be over and it'll be time to think Christmas.
So everyone has one chance.  I'll have my grandson pick a name out of a hat.
Then I'll put the name of the winner on my blog and send an email to you and let you know who won.

Sample card - isn't that cute?
My grandson had a ball with it last night.  He had a mighty long list.

 


These are the beautiful cards! And I needed some.  I always love Hallmark.


I am crazy (lol) excited.  The upper left is a card where you and your grand child talks and make a list and you send it to Santa!!!!!!!!! (Who ever is Santa).
And the bottom two are clocks that show how many days until CHRISTMAS!  A Christmas Count Down.  I set the dates easy as can be.  Will send one to both my grands.
These cards are great - I know because I have them.  I was not paid, but I still love them.
And I think I would buy them if I saw them at the store.

Now I only do these kind of giveaways when I get one for you too!

Say What? said...

Well of course ... very interested. :) It's time to get in the spirit of things.

That sounds wonderful Chatty Girl what you are going to do.

I will pass as my Grandchildren are adults now. So then ones who have children can use them if they reply to you. You are so sweet. Your a real giver of heart. The cards look lovely,lovely and as you say and the video said. Is great!

God bless!

NOw that's a cool thing. I'm interested, too~

Jeanie said...

I probably don't need the cards, but I did need the jolt into realizing that Christmas is not that for away.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

I am NOT interested in your give away but did enjoy the pictures. I do like Christmas cards and send them out every year. Thankfully I can still afford to do that. It's a dark rainy day here but warm thoughts of the coming holidays make the day brighter. Hope you have a great Monday!

TexWisGirl said...

your grandson is too cute. don't count me in the giveaway, though.

Wanda's Wings said...

I have no grandchildren,but the cards are super cool.

Beth said...

Lovely cards. I am interested. Thank you.

barbara l. hale said...

Thanks for the offer. But I'm not interested. Mainly because I try to do a photo card every time I send them out. Just to keep my distant relatives and friends aware that we aren't getting any younger. lol.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Oh my goodness these are adorable! I would LOVE to have these for Tiger! Thanks for the chance to win Sandie!

Big Hugs to you! Linda

That corgi :) said...

What a cute giveaway, Sandie. I'm a follower and definitely interested!! Looks like a cute card GS is "modeling" for us!

betty

Sr. Ann Marie Slavin said...

Lovely idea, Sandie! Thank you for being willing to do this. I won't be part of the giveaway, however, because I don't have children to give them to--and a lot of your other followers do!

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

That first one really says it all!

BECKY said...

Your grandson is such a cutie! He reminds me so much of my youngest son, Mark, when he was that age!
Hallmark Rocks! :)

Knitty said...

How cute these are! I will pass though as Colton doesn't really articulate a wish list yet.

Remington said...

AWESOME! I am interested, my friend!

Grandma Bonnie said...

These are awesome cards. I am not entering the giveaway as I have one coming up on my blog in a few days. I wish everyone the best of luck.

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

Cute "Card Tester" guy, you have there! ,-) How much fun, is going to Grandmother's house, hu??? Hu? Huuu?

I'm a nut, but you knew that. I never did a give-away in all my years of blogging. And I have won. So for a long time now, I don't enter into the give-aways which sweet bloggers do.

Just me. :-)

jack69 said...

I'm not too interested in cards. We keep a stock even here int he motor home. I think we already have more than enough from allthe advertizers that contact us, but someone will be very lucky, and that is a nice gesture.
Hope you have a great week, I love the entrance cartoon!!

Love from NC

Days End said...

A Quiet Corner said...

Now how in Heavens name could I pass up an offer like that, girl? Count me in, sugar! I've got 6 out of the 7 that are still doing the "list" thing!!!...:)JP

Ms. A said...

No offense to you, but I'm not interested. I'm not interested in Christmas, either... bah humbug!

BelovedBomber said...

I am interested...great, innovative ideas!

Annmarie Pipa said...

everyone in the world like to get a card!

Susan said...

Hi Sandie...Great post. Please put my name into the hat and tell GS to pull it out, okay? Thanks! Susan

Gloria Hood said...

The cards are just adorable! Of course I am interested! I have a 5 yr old grandson that could really get into these!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Love Hallmark- of course I am interested! :)
I just overdosed on Christmas movies on Lifetime and Hallmark channels yesterday. (4 in a row after church) I told my sister I was now ready to hit the stores and put a dent in my Christmas shopping.

LoLy said...

How adorable, Love it :D

Cheryl @ TFD said...

These are super cute cards, but don't put my name in the hat as we don't have any little ones in the family. Thanks anyway!

Sharon said...

Thanks for the offer - but I have so many *leftover* cards, I don't really need any more. But, you're right, these are adorable!

By the way, I enjoyed your comments about the election. I admire your courage - and the timely reminder that no matter who the President is, we are still loved and watched over by the THE KING!

GOD BLESS!

Ann said...

These are really cute cards but I don't have any little ones to send them to.

fromoverwhelmedtoorganized said...

Those are so cute! My kids would LOVE them. Count me in. Thanks Sandie :)

The Boston Lady said...

First, I am interested. I have someone I could pass them on to... Second, Jodi Picoult is one of my favorite authors, and that quote at the end is just perfect, as so like her. I have read every one of her books. Hope you are having a good week, Sandie. Ann

Linda O'Connell said...

Cute kid, cute cards, put my name in the hat please.

SweetMarie said...

Those are adorable! I wish they had them when my son was younger. As cute as they are don't count me in because I don't have any little ones to pass them onto.
You are awesome!
Marie

CalamityJr said...

So cute, but I will pass due to lack of little people. You're going to make someone very happy, though!

Dee said...

I am INTERESTED \0/

Mevely317 said...

Yikes, lady ... your title like to give me heart-failure! lol.

...But to answer your question, yes, I'm very interested! Who doesn't love Hallmark? (Wouldn't that be the neatest place in which to work?)

DearHelenHartman said...

I have no little ones around but it's a darling give away and I love the Jodi P quote.

The Jones Family said...

Those cards look great since I have little grandchildren - five (almost six) to be exact. Pleases enter me in the giveaway! Enjoy the week ahead.

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

You always have the greatest ideas! You also have the cutest Grandson!!

Dolores said...

Your grandson is so cute!!! Count me in...
Hugs

Debbie said...

It's my nature to try to win everything. LOL

Since I don't have little ones, it would be wrong to try to win this and take the chance away from one with kids, though.

So... reluctantly, I guess I should pass.

Betsy Adams said...

Oh how I love that last picture of your grandson. Such a handsome young man...

I don't participate in Giveaways--but I love Hallmark cards... That is so neat!!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Shug said...

For sure, put my name in the pot...I have a good feeling that your adorable grandson is going to pull out the name (shug). Ha!!

You always make my day!!

Bev said...

Well of course I'm interested...even though I am soaking up the sun down here and Christmas seems months away... (and so weird to here Christmas carols when I'm in my shorts...)

Laura Day said...

I'm already a follower and I'm interested in playing. (I couldn't get the video to work though)

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Jim said...

Those are cute, Sandie. Yes, I would be interested in the children's cards.

I think that is what you have. Our KP has an Advent Card that she and Karen (daughter) count down to Christmas with. Of course it isn't digital or anything like that.

Our adult cards will always commemorate the birth of Christ. I have in the past chided card manufacturers who do not offer these. One, for attorneys, changed and now offer three that tell the meaning of celebrating Christmas.

Lynn said...

No kids in close proximity to me, so I'll say no to the giveaway, but love the idea of it. How nice that you are doing that.

Cute grandson!

The Café Sucré Farine said...

Thanks for the reminder that Christmas is just around the corner, wow! I need to get going!

Vee said...

Oh that looks like fun and I'd love to have my name tossed into the cap. I am a Follower as well. Thanks!

Farida said...

I wish I was living near your are coz I patronized Hallmark card too :)

Good luck to the lucky winner!

Renae said...

Yes I am interested!

Thanks for the sweet compliment. I always wonder about my looks. You put a smile on my face.

Renae said...

Hey Ms. Chatty,

Do you know what has happened to Chillin' with Jill? She claims she has a new blog but the link connects to an old weird blog dated 2004?

Just wondering if you know.

Butterbean Row said...

Very cute idea!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Hallmark is the best!

Annesphamily said...

What a wonderful giveaway! I LOVE it and would be happy to be part of it! You are a kind lady and Hallmark is generous. They always make such lovely cards. Plus I do follow you and would anywhere! SMile!
