Hallmark Contest Update for My Daughter Ava and Myself!!!

Blog Posted:4/24/2009 1:32:00 PM
<P><FONT color=#ff1493>Hi guys! Just a small update for one very excited mama! Most of you know&nbsp;I'm a&nbsp;finalist in the Hallmark Mother's Day Card competition. Well, Hallmark just tallyed all the votes, including card sales, today - and we are now in </FONT><FONT color=#006400>3rd place!!! </FONT><FONT color=#ff1493>I am so excited!!! We actually have a chance of winning now!</FONT></P> <P><FONT color=#ff1493>So, I'm going to be super annoying, once again, and beg to my awesome poetic friends to please, pretty please vote for us, and maybe even buy some cards? We are so broke, and could really use the $2500.00 the top seller wins. My husband got laid off last month, as sucks.</FONT></P> <P><FONT color=#ff1493>BUT, being the optimist that I am, I know things will be&nbsp;better; and this certainly helps put a smile on my face. :)</FONT></P> <P><FONT color=#ff1493> is the link for anyone interested in voting and/or buying one of our Mother's Day Cards. <A href=""></A></FONT></P> <P><FONT color=#ff1493>You can also find them in any Hallmark store;Wallgreens; or Wal-Mart..and other places, too that carry lots of Hallmark cards.</FONT></P> <P><FONT color=#ff1493>Thanks guys, you're the best!!!!!!</FONT></P> <P><FONT color=#ff1493>Love, Kristin</FONT></P>

    Voted for the little Golddigger, "picking your battles", a good message to send out to children, my Dad used to say that to me, pick your battles Constance, ask yourself, is it worth it, can you win it, does it matter... good luck in the contest..
