Win a Selection of Cardooo Greetings Cards

dinosaurs_cover_prDid you know that here in the UK we buy and send more greetings cards than anywhere else in the world? I don’t know about you, but when the girls have a birthday, we tend to leave the greetings cards up for months because we feel bad about taking them down too soon! Recently, Cardooo got in touch and asked if we’d like to give away a selection of their cards to one lucky Mum’s the Word reader and, because we love all of you of course we agreed!

The beauty of Cardooo cards is that they aren’t just a greetings card, they also have activities such as colouring and stories incorporated into them, so they really are the cards that keep on giving! They’re available online and also at Asda (the current range is available here, with further designs available in the near future) Click on the images below to see the full card design.

I also ADORE the fact that they have a colouring card which depicts a girl playing football – so unusual to see gender neutral stuff like that and something which would definitely make me buy them in the future.

To be in with a chance of winning, just leave follow Cardooo on Instagram, Twitter and go over to their Facebook page to say “Hi”, then come back here and leave me a comment telling me which is your favourite Cardooo card from the website. I’ll draw a winner at random this time next week (16th October 2015) and Cardooo will send out a selection once the winner has given me their contact details. No cash alternative will be offered.

Good luck!

Paper Shaker: Review and Giveaway

Recently, the people from PaperShaker got in touch and asked if we’d like to try out their bespoke stationery service and with Sausage’s birthday coming up, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to make some Thank You cards for her to give to people who buy her gifts.

The site currently only offers baby announcement and thank you cards, adult and kids party invitations and various wedding stationery, but the cool thing about the site is that all of the cards are customisable, so I managed to make some beautiful thank you cards suitable for a 5-year-old to give out from the wedding thank you templates on the site. I added a gorgeous picture of Sausage that I took a few months ago and adjusted the graphics around the edge – here’s the result:

Aren’t they gorgeous? The photo is printed in really high quality too, so people could probably frame it afterwards, if they chose to.

We were even able to customise the text on the back of the cards, adding our own personalised message.

And now for the best bit – you could win your own set of PaperShaker cards too! I have three sets of cards with free p&p to give away, which you can design and customise yourself. All you need to do to enter is fill in the Rafflecopter widget below.
