Hallmark Giveaway! Edge of Motherhood and Encouragement Cards for Kids


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 certainly rings true for me--just last week I was on Twitter sharing some special "motherhood" moments with other Moms and celebrating Hallmark's new card lines. One of them, the "Edge of Motherhood" line, is perfect for connecting with other Moms.

The card on the right from the "Edge of Motherhood" line is my favorite! Online, you can even personalize it with your friend's name. It says, "If you ever need to talk, you can call me." Inside it reads: "There'll be screaming in the background... I'll have to hide in a closet to hear you... It'll be awesome."

Isn't that perfect?! They start at just 99 cents, too! Yay, budget.

For kids, Hallmark’s new collection of encouragement cards for are designed to help parents provide an extra boost of confidence for kids as they experience “everyday” moments – whether it’s the first day of school, taking a test or trying out for a team.

My guys, as you know, already started school. They BOTH had tests yesterday, in fact, and the Owl was really sweating his, so I could see these encouragement cards coming in handy. Some of the cards include originally recorded sound clips too, which play when your kids open the card! These cards also start at 99 cents (the ones with sound retail for $2.99).

Both collections of cards are available at select Hallmark Gold Crown stores and other retailers where Hallmark cards are sold. And some styles of the “Edge of Motherhood” cards are available online (full collection is only in stores).

The fabulous folks at Hallmark have provided us with an AMAZING giveaway to celebrate the new launches--not one, not two, but THREE winners will receive 5 cards from EACH new collection, Edge of Motherhood and encouragement cards for kids! Woohoo!
