Hallmark Cards Review & Giveaway

I have always been a card person. I send holiday cards and birthday cards, even anniversary cards to friends! I was excited when the people at Hallmark contacted me about their new line of cards called Edge of Motherhood and encouragement cards for kids. I received the eight (8) cards shown below to review. I thought they were so clever and really cute! As is typical of Hallmark they are sturdy cards and the encouragement cards for kids play music! The best part? The cards are just $.99 ($2.99 for the ones that play music). This is a great deal. The card plus postage and it's still less than $1.50. Surely the special people in your life are worth that? To me, getting a card in the mail is so much more personal than an email card or ecard.

The Edge of Motherhood line is a line of humor cards designed to give moms a lift during their hectic days. A recent national survey commissioned by Hallmark revealed two-thirds of moms say they handle the imperfect moments of motherhood by sharing funny stories with other moms about their experiences, and that 8 in 10 moms turn to each other for candid, empathetic, and unapologetic support and reassurance that “we are all in this together.” That's what this line of cards is all about!

The encouragement cards for kids line are cards from parents to kids and are ways of giving kids an extra boost of confidence during their lives. This may be for a big test or game and are just a small way to remind a child that you're in their corner!

The folks over at Hallmark have graciously decided to give one (1) of my lucky readers ten (10) Hallmark cards, five (5) from the Edge of Motherhood Collection and five (5) of the mom-to-kid encouragement cards!
