Bloggy Giveaway Carnival *giveaway 1*

This contest is now closed.
Thank you all for your interest in my giveaways!
The winners of all four of my giveaways and this weeks What The? will be announced later today (Feb. 2) in a separate post.

Beat the winter blues! To brighten your winter days, look what I am giving away:


a .jpg and .pdf file of a custom mommy/calling card. With this file, you will be able to print them on your own – use your own computer printer or take them to your favorite print/photo shop. The file is yours to keep. Print as many as you want, whenever you want. Each card is personalized with your information. Additional information can be added to the back.

This giveaway is open to all participants – worldwide.

For your chance to win, head over to my business (Fruition Designs), take a look around, and then come back and tell me your favorite design (don’t worry – you can change your mind if you win!). I’ll leave the comments open until this Saturday, February 2nd. Then I’ll draw a winner from my trusty hat.

*Also – I am offering a 15% discount on orders of 100 Mommy Cards from now until February 14th. So, if you don’t win, you can still get a great deal on some great looking cards! Just use the code BG15 for your mommy card order.

I am also giving away a gorgeous purse, made by mom. Head over to this post to see it and enter that contest. And I will be adding another giveaway Wednesday.

So I am joining in on the Dog Days of Summer giveaway.

I’m sure y’all know what I’ll be giving away…

50 one-sided mommy cards of your choice. Choose from any of the designs on the Mommy Cards page.

Please note that these cards aren’t for moms only – you can use the designs for calling cards, business cards etc. So please, feel free to enter even if you are not a parent or a parent to a young child!! Also, they make a great gift for moms you know.

To enter, leave a comment and let me know what your favorite design is.
*Due to shipping costs, this contest is only open to residents of the U.S.*
I’ll close comments at 12:01 a.m. (CST) this coming Friday morning, July 27, and I’ll draw a random winner from the list. I’ll announce the winner sometime of Friday.

**Additionally, anyone who doesn’t win and would still like to order any Mommy Cards from Fruition Designs can receive 15% off any Mommy Card order placed before August 15th by mentioning my blog when ordering.

 

Looky! I’m a Spotlight! AND a Blog Award Nominee

What an honor!

Janice, at 5 Minutes for Mom, has chosen me as her first Spotlight of Faith – Courage Award. She interviewed me and you can read it here. Please jump over and read my interview and be sure to read around their awesome site. It is so full of helpful, encouraging information. (And Janice and her twin, Susan have a neat toy/gift business too!)

Thank you, Janice, for this honor!

*UPDATED* I had no idea I was nominated for this (“best blog design” and “most inspiring blog”) until I went over to vote!!! Thank you to whoever nominated me for these! Now go VOTE! (scroll down to Jan. 31st post)

So much can happen when you are offline moving and getting sick… ;)

Additionally, we are moved in… still have some small stuff to get over. And I have to clean. But on top of the move and the outage, Abbie and I both came down with a nasty stomach virus. We are on the mend now, praise the Lord!!

Regarding the study — We WILL be resuming on Monday!!! Please don’t let all of the bumps in this discourage you from taking part. Either the Lord wanted me to take a few weeks to really dive into it, or other forces were trying to make sure we didn’t learn anything from this study. Let’s do it!

Blessings,
Karla
