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

Blog Posted:4/24/2009 1:32:00 PM

Hi guys! Just a small update for one very excited mama! Most of you know I'm a 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 3rd place!!! I am so excited!!! We actually have a chance of winning now!

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 well...it sucks.

BUT, being the optimist that I am, I know things will be better; and this certainly helps put a smile on my face. :)

So..here is the link for anyone interested in voting and/or buying one of our Mother's Day Cards. http://www.hallmarkcontests.com/parenthood/reveal.cfm

You can also find them in any Hallmark store;Wallgreens; or Wal-Mart..and other places, too that carry lots of Hallmark cards.

Thanks guys, you're the best!!!!!!

Love, Kristin

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..

The card is so adorable in person! I mailed one out to my daughter just to show her and she is going to buy some! She could not believe I knew the 'artist' and that the child was her daughter! You are stars! Good luck! Will vote every day : ) Love, Shar
