CardsDirect {$50 Gift Certificate Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Jennifer T!}

Of the many things that I used to do before I had children (sleep in, comb my hair, have peace and quiet while I shower, etc) one of them was creating my own photo greeting cards. I used to spend an endless amount of time online perfecting our holiday cards with just the right picture, words, design and more until I was happy with what was going to be sent out to everyone we knew.

I did manage to keep it up a little bit in the past few years after having had Big Sister E and Little Sister B, because the thought of sending out beautiful custom-made birth announcements was one that I couldn't let go. However, the time-consuming aspect, combined with my obsessiveness to get every detail perfect, has all but made my at-home photo cards endeavor a thing of the past.

Fortunately, there are great sites like CardsDirect.com that can give me the personalized look that I want without having to spend too much time or money on amazing, top-quality results.

Offering a wide variety of customized greeting cards for business or personal use (over 2,000 card designs!), the selection available at CardsDirect ensures that there are options to fit your style and need. With categories including birthday cards, thank you cards, Christmas cards, baby shower invitations, birth announcements and more, the hardest part about shopping at CardsDirect is narrowing down your favorites.

With Big Sister E's fourth birthday coming up in less than two months, I'm already thinking about the invitations. However, getting a three-year-old to decide on what theme she would like has proven to be difficult, as every time I ask I seem to receive a different answer.

She has gone from wanting a Dinosaur Party to a Giraffe Party to a Car Party... and just about everything in between. From the looks of it, my best bet will be a classic, colorful, fun invitation that will work for any theme that we end up choosing.

Or, with the holiday season rapidly approaching (even though I'm not sure how that is possible), I really like the collection of stylish Christmas Photo Cards that CardsDirect offers. With so many timeless, elegant options that allow you to not only add your favorite picture, but customize the text, alignment and more, your final card will be a one-of-a-kind that fits your family perfectly.

Combine the great selection of greeting cards for business or personal use, the free personalization inside and out, great customer service and competitive low pricing and you've got CardsDirect. They make it effortless to browse, create and order the cards you need for almost any occasion. Sounds simple enough, right? Well, thanks to the generosity of CardsDirect.com, it will be even a little easier for one person, because...

One lucky person will win a $50 gift certificate to CardsDirect!
