Mommy Cards: A Holiday Giveaway


The Christmas season makes me a little overly ambitious. I tend to start with a humongous wish list of activities to do with the kids, stores I want to shop, date nights I plan to take with my husband, and events to attend as a family. More often than not, school lets out for break, and before I know it, it's Christmas Eve, and I've done good to get my shopping done online and bake a batch of candy cane cookies for Santa.

THIS year, I decided to throw my expectations to the wind and wing it. Short of my Advent devotions, I'm allowing myself to do whatever seasonal activity comes to mind each day. Today, I decided to give a Christmas present to one of my readers in the form of a...

HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY!

I'm crazy-excited about this one. Really. I've been eyeing and researching these things for months, requesting samples, just waiting for a good time to kick off the entries!

Mommy Cards are the trendiest way to network with other moms (at least that's my croc-wearing opinion)! I love the thought of pulling one out of my Coach purse as I'm pushing my kid on a swing, wearing JimmyChoo heels and sipping my nonfat blah blah blah...

Even though I'm more likely to be found chasing my runaway child while wearing flips and dying of thirst because I didn't have an extra hand for my Diet Dr. Pepper, I can still stash a couple Mommy Cards in the pocket of my $5 clearance purse, and they're really handy to pass off to teachers, birthday party hostesses, club leaders, or anyone else who might not have your contact information on hand when you entrust your offspring to them!

Itsy Bitsy Smiles has a simply adorable selection of double-sided Mommy Cards at a price more reasonable than other comparable companies. Check out the site! My personal favorites are "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and "Poodle Skirt" (love the emergency contacts on the backside!).

Itsy Bitsy Smiles Photo Announcements and Invitations

The site also features birth announcements, invitations, and greeting cards, all equally adorable! And if you don't see what you were searching for, they'll create a custom design just for you!
