I recently was given the opportunity to review the Hallmark Get Carded Challenge for free in exchange for my 100% honest and unbiased opinion on their product.
I was so excited when I got accepted to try out the Hallmark Get Carded Challenge. I have always known about Hallmark, but what I did not know is how many options of cards they have for just about any occasion out there. For those of you that have dont know what the Hallmark Get Carded Challenge is, it is a program that you are able to sign up for and if you are excepted then they send you a bundle of cards, stamps, and envelopes to send to seven people in seven days. If you would like to check it for yourself here is the link to sign up: http://corporate.hallmark.com/GetCarded
I love how beautiful the cards are and the wording in each card is so nice too. Also I like how they have blank cards too so that you can write a message of your very own. For me the only problem was choosing who I wanted to send a card too. Here are pictures of the cards that Hallmark sent to me along with coordinating envelopes too. One card had a wood feel to it, another played music, and my favorite one looked hand sewn.
So I ended up sending one card to my Uncle who is currently battling cancer. Just to let him know that we are always thinking of him and love him. After he received the card he called me to tell how much he loved receiving a card from us and it had made his day because he was having a bad one.
Second card went to one of my really good friends who we have always been there for each other. She has recently been having troubles in her marriage so I sent her a card with a little inspirational message. When she received the card she text-ed me to tell me how much she appreciated the card and that she loves me. I love it when something as simple as a card lets someone know that you care.
Third card I sent to my mom for mothers day with a little necklace inside to let her know how much we appreciate, love and miss her. She called me the day she received it to thank me and she was crying.
Fourth card was sent to my husband for his birthday. I know that he lives with me but I sent it to him without my name on the envelope and he was so excited to receive it. When he found out that it was from me he thought it was so sweet that I took the time to send one to him.
Fifth card I sent out to my daughter in college just to let her know that we were thinking of her and how proud we are of her and all the hard work that she is doing. She called us to let us know that she got the card and loved the design on it and that she put it up on her dresser for all to see.
Sixth card went out to a very dear old friend of my husbands for her birthday that he has known since high school. As soon as she received the card she called me in tears because she was so happy and touched that someone took time out of their life to sent her a card to wish her a Happy Birthday and let her know that she was actually thought of. It really touched my heart to know that something as simple as a card could do that for someone.
Last and final card I sent to both my nieces who graduated this year one from high school and the other from eight grade. Just to let them know how proud we are of them. The funny thing is that they received the card the day that we got there for their graduations.
