Send a Card to A Friend Day!
Hi friends! Happy Thursday! Did you know that yesterday (February 7th) was “Send a Card to a Friend” day? We’ve found that many crafters (us included!!) can be guilty of making lots of cards that just accumulate in our homes but are not actually sent out to friends and family. What a shame! On this special holiday, we encourage you to send a card you’ve created but haven’t sent or create a card for a friend and send it to him/her!
It is so important to share our handmade cards. We appreciate the value in sharing kindness with others! In this spirit, we’d like you to share a card that you are sending to a friend this week in our link up below for a chance to win a $100 gift card! Would you like another chance to win? Pop on over to our Facebook page chance for ANOTHER chance at winning a $100 gift card to our shop by sharing a card you are mailing to a friend this week!
Winners will be drawn next week at random! Good luck!
We can’t wait to see what you’re making and sending!
Awesome day, Yess I need to send more of the cards I make!
What a great idea and its my friends birthday as well!
Actually the entire month of February is International Correspondence Writing Month so I’ve taken up the challenge and I’m going to send a card out every day of the month – or at least try to! It is nice to finally use up all of those cards I’ve been making :) Thanks for your challenge too!
just mailed a bunch of Valentine’s Day cards….
I sent the Twirling Bear to a friend for her
birthday. Love being able to send love
through a handmade card.
thanks for sharing.
I just sent 3 cards out this week to friends. One was a sympathy card and the other two were thinking of you cards. I know it will mean a lot to the friends that get them. I also have some Valentine’s card ready to send. I love to send them to the young ones in our family, they get such a kick out of getting something in the mail.
What fun to know there is a special Send a Card day! I love making cards and all the ideas Simon Says shows! I send cards out every week!
I made two cards this week for our letter carrier and newspaper delivery. We’re in a cold snap -21C with a forecast of 30cm of snowfall. These people work outside all day, they deserve recognition. The card had a silver die cut ‘Brrrrrr’ with a pair of red and white mittens pointing together, when you lifted the mitten panel a Tim Horton’s gift card was revealed. Underneath stamped “take a break”. Sorry I can’t post a pic.
I am sending out Valentine’s Day cards this week. Always a joy to be able to tell friends and family how much we love them.
Sending a card out to a friend in another state – thanks for the challenge and wonderful prize that is offered – blessings
I didn’t know this! It just so happen’s though, that I WAS making a card for a friend yesterday! ;) PERFECT TIMING!!! ;)
I love this idea and am all in!
What a timely post! I’ve recently been challenging myself to get my cards into friends’ mailboxes (and not just accumulate them in my craft room)!
It’s so fun to get a card in the mail Instead of a facebook post. Love this idea.
I send cards just about every week, but didn’t send any yesterday as they weren’t addressed in time. I’ve got several ready to go now, so will link up. Thanks so much for the chance at this very generous prize, SSS!
I am so guilty of not sending the cards I make. I do all occasions, but not just random ones except to my family.
I do not have a stockpile of cards, sometimes I wish I did! I do send a ton of cards and I make them for each person specifically. I do mass produce Christmas cards, I make and send about 75 each year. I think card making is terrific–stress and creative release for me, and sending love to family and friends.
Love this idea! I need to get more cards out!
I’m sending an anniversary card to one sister and a birthday card to another sister.
That’s fun! And yes, I have a bunch of cards to be posted out this weekend, though they were made a couple of months ago :)
I’m soooo guilty of making cards and not sending them!! I need to change this!!
what a fun ‘Day’ – thanks for the chance of winning – it’s a win/win situation all round – yay!!
Hope I did this right.
All the cards are so beautiful! I made and sent a card to a dear friend yesterday who recently lost her grandparent.
Such a great idea. I send at least one card a week.
I did send TWO cards today. One I posted to your Facebook page, the other I wanted to post here (though I have no idea HOW to do so!). Do I need a special link, or have my own blog?
Love this idea!
Oh sorry I added two that won’t let me delete them, I did watch the video to see how to link and still got it wrong. Hope you can fix admin. Thanks for this wonderful opportunity. Kind regards Denise
This was the push I needed! I’ve had thus card for almost a year and my friend has been having heart trouble. I’m sending it out NOW to cheer her up!
What a wonderful, kind thought. Will get right to it! Thanks for reminding us to actually SEND something instead of just thinking about it. BTW I went onto your Fb page and it wasn’t on there.
I’ve got 20 cards on my desk waiting for addresses. Had to stop to help make 22 second-grader valentines with granddaughter. Tiring, but fun, week!
I send few cards to my friends!
I actually remembered to send some cards this past week and am determined to mail all of my Valentines, as well as a few friendship cards too!
I got a lot done and ready to mail tomorrow with several more I need to write and get ready to mail for Tuesday! I need to start doing this on a monthly basis!!! Thanks for the push
This is a fab holiday and a wonderful opportunity for all of us to share our creations.
What a great idea!!! Thank you for the push to actually get cards sent!!
