{silly me design} etsy giveaway!

why hello, everybody!

so glad you decided to stop by today because I have some very exciting news to share with you:

I JUST WON AN ALL-EXPENSE PAID TRIP FOR TWELVE TO PARIS!

you all know I'm kidding, right?  right.  

actually, I'm here to tell you about something faaaaar better, so listen up.

have you ever found yourself at some big box store (ie; Costco, Walmart, etc) browsing through their selection of holiday greeting cards, but not really liking anything you see?  and so, out of sheer desperation, you end up choosing a design that you kind of like, but not really, and then later as the Christmas cards start to roll in, what do you know!  turns out every Tom, Dick and Harry just so happened to "kind of like" that same card too!  hmph, so much for your card being "original."

well, here's your chance to kiss those "cookie cutter" cards good-bye, and say hello to a unique, one-of-a-kind card instead.

Kim, from Silly Me Design, has offered to give away a custom designed holiday card (a $20 value!) to one of my blog readers!  isn't she sweet?  or if you prefer, you may also choose from an extraordinary array of pre-fab holiday card designs, which you'll find HERE.         

while browsing through her stylish designs, here are a couple that caught my eye:

       
can you say GORGEOUS?  in fact, Kim just recently put together a birth announcement for Finley and I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!  all I had to do was email her my picture, along with any specific info/sentiment I wanted on the card, and she took care of the rest, simple as that.

the finished product:


so cute!

no matter what you decide to go with, your holiday cards will be sure to stand out among the rest of all those run-of the mill Costco cards.  Kim's work is THAT amazing.

catch Silly Me Design here: facebook, etsy, blog 

interested in a chance to win?

if so, simply leave a comment on this post specifying which card style you prefer.  do you love bright, fun colors?  or are you the more the traditional type?  vintage?  retro? no clue?

*you may also receive one extra entry by liking Silly Me Design on facebook.  just be sure to come back and leave another comment letting me know you did so.

contest open through Thursday November 10th midnight PST.

good luck!

I'm more of a traditionalist but always open to other's creativity. I'm hoping that the first post is the lucky one!

susie edwards said...

I guess I like them all! I probably tend to do mine more simple because it is easier, but love a creative card.

Anita said...

I like traditional colors with Merry Christmas, but with a retro design. I love those designs though, I used her for my birth announcements once too!

Anita said...

Liked on FB!

Tony and Renee said...

I'm one of the 'no clue what my style is'. I love bright and colorful but then can go traditional and simple too. I LOVE how your card turned out!

Corinne Jurmu said...

I love all types of cards! Its always fun and exciting to see "new" styled ones but also the traditional cards are just as cute!! I hope christmas cards never die out! They are a fun tradition!

Caroline J. said...

I like the joy and laughter style (I actually like them ALL!) Love the birth announcement.

Dan and Rita said...

I love your blog, although I am usually left wondering how you can have so much energy! All I can think is that your kids must be well behaved!! Love the Silly Me Designs Cards! Liked them on Facebook too. I have no clue what kind card I love. Rita

Kelly K said...

I love the design on the right! ...and jessica, am I really procrastinating if I haven't done cards by Nov 1??? I think 1 year out of 24 they were done before that! :) BUT I would love to win these cards and have something good happen because of my procrastinating ways!

Keilah said...

I don't really know what kind of card I like. I do know that I LOVE getting them and seeing everyone else's creativity and wondering why mine can't be more creative. Maybe this year mine will be when I win this little contest LOL! I love how your birth announcement turned out. Joleen

okay ... what's wrong with a good o'l costco christmas card!?! at least you're getting your message out there, MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!! and doesn't most people just throwaway the cards after the holidays? i guess i go with the more affordable cards which to some people might be boring :( ... i think the cards on your blog are fabulous, don't get me wrong, but i guess we can't all be the creative type ... and each card is unique because of the people! :) lol! i love christmas time and greeting cards! - alissa w (not uncle scrooge) :)

denise hillukka said...

Lol at alissa comment. I think I am the whatever is easiest fastest and reasonably priced person, as much as I admire the creativity out there! I do not have the patience to sit and look over many designs like others do! Cute baby thank you Jessica! Denise H

Not sure what I like is considered but I love the birth announcement you have posted! If I win can I use her design for a baby announcement instead in Jan? :) No photos this year when so close to my due date! ;)
