You're Getting Carded

I can't believe it's November already! Time to start sending out the holiday greeting cards! Or if you're like me, filling them out and addressing them and then laying them in a prominent place because you're like totally going to get some stamps like tomorrow or the next day and then oops it's January 15th or 31st and the stack of cards is still there. Unsent. Gettin' all dusty and shit.

(What can I say? Martha Stewart I am most definitely not.)

Anyway, if you're one of those punctual do-gooders that actually sends their cards on time (I hate you) then you're in luck. Why? Because it's my FIRST-EVER GIVEAWAY, that's why. Because I could be giving you these tidbits of handcrafted amazingness:






The lovely and insanely creative Jennifer of jbpaperdesigns (check out her stuff - it's soooo pretty) has whipped up these gorgeous holiday cards exclusively for one lucky reader! The winner of this giveaway may choose either the "Holiday Doodles" set (shown in the first two photos) or the "Twine Before Christmas" set (featured in the bottom two). Each set comes with sixteen cards and envelopes. And the cards are blank inside - so if "kiss my arse" is your sentiment this holiday season, well, that's what you can jolly well write.

So how do you enter? It's as easy as Paris Hilton pie. Follow this blog, and leave a comment on this post. Ta-da! You're entered! Of course, it'd be nice if you'd tell a few friends to come and enter. Or tweet about it on Twitter. Or go up to some random person at the post office and be all, "Hey, Rita's doing her very first ever giveaway on Fighting Off Frumpy and she would totally love it to be a successful event so maybe you should go check it out. Because I see that you're a person who loves mailing things which means you won't leave your holiday cards sitting out on the counter for months." And then pick a piece of lint off their sweater with a smile to cap off the creepiness.

... Or not.

I'll randomly select a winner from the commenters next Wednesday, November 11th. So remember: follow. Comment. WIN!!!! :)


(And yes, Mom, you're allowed to enter. Seeing as you, like, gave birth to me and stuff. Sorry about those 60 pounds.)

  1. I love those type of cards - they are amazing and no one else around here would have one like it - unless I told them to come comment but then it would lessen my chances of winning and... does that make me a bad person? Like if I wait to tell them to read your blog AFTER the 11th????

  2. Congrats on your first giveaway! I just found a few Christmas cards I thought I mailed and didn't when I was digging through my paper stash this morning...fortunately they were not cards to important people, just my sister and my children's godparents, no big deal. (Yeah, right.) Well, I already follow you (with pleasure, of course), so I'll give you a tweet about the giveaway. :-)

  4. I don't do Christmas cards because they are just one more thing to add to my list of things that need to be done but will never happen. So if you pick my name go ahead and pick again. Just have to say that your scene at the post office is stinkin' hilarious!

  5. I am also one of those well meaning people that address the cards every year and then don't send them. I would like to try again this year to actually get them sent. I like the first set.

  6. Love them all...

    I'll let people know on my blog, but granted, I don't have a following like you do. ;)

  7. I've been following you on Google Reader, but now I'm an official follower. Love the first set of cards.

    (PS - I don't know where I found your blog, but apparantly we are both from the QCA. So of course I have to keep reading.)

  10. I hate to admit it but I am the worst at sending cards of ANY kind, birthday, christmas, thank yous, I just suck. My husband sent out our thank yous after we married! Although, I am the friend or family memebr that always keeps in touch by calling, visiting or inviting you for dinner so I think that most people forgive me. I love the second set of cards and would totally use them with presents, I swear. :)

  12. I was going to make our cards but um ... no time at all for that! These are adorable!

  13. Heh. I do the Christmas card thing, but they're usually given along with the gifts. Maybe this year I'll actually mail them. That would be cool.

    Those twine cards are awesome! I want to enter, but. . .I follow on my OWN. Does that count?!

    Either way, kudos for you for doing a giveaway!

  14. Nice cards.

    I'm a follower now. I thought I had been following you already but I guess not. I swear I pushed follow awhile back..or maybe I was about to and Natalie screamed and I had to get up from the computer. Who knows? I'm following now, that's what matters :)

  16. These cards are awesome! I like the fact that they're not just like all the rest. She's really creative!

    And about the 60 pounds.......most of it went away, and I'm working on the rest! LOL

  17. I STILL have cards from last Christmas with names and stamps on them but incomplete addresses. You'd think maybe I'd buy an address book one of these days so I didn't have to track these down every. single. year.

  18. You know, I comment even when there's no giveaway.
    POINTS FOR ME.
    lol

    I love that you snuck into my house and watched me do the cards and leave them there, and then wrote about it.
    Rude.
    ;)
