Hallmark Countdown To Christmas and a Giveaway!

Edit - This giveaway is now closed.

Christmas is my favourite time of the year. I'll never forget us standing around the piano with Mom playing Christmas carols while we all sang, this is a memory I treasure.

Hallmark is another reminder of Christmas from my childhood. Their commercials during holidays, the special movies and shows they put on the TV, their ornaments in the stores, and the amazing Christmas cards they come out with every year.

I was approached by Hallmark and asked to participate in their new Countdown to Christmas interactive cards preview and giveaway. With computer problems I almost backed out, but they told me it was fine to do it in December. And am I glad they did, because look at the fun cards I received!

 Package from Hallmark arrives and...

 ...look at all the goodies!!

 Countdown to Christmas with one of Santa's elfs. This card is going to my grandson, David who is 9

I set the date & time with the mode buttons near the bottom, when I took this picture there were actually 33 days till Christmas. :)

 Mickey Countdown to Christmas. Our youngest grandson, Kaleb at 5, received this card. 

Still 33 days till Christmas :)

 A box full of pop-up cards

The inside of the pop-up cards. I'll be sending these out this week. 

 Oh so adorable! I'm such a cat person, and I know the perfect person to receive this card! 

Mickey's recordable card. The kids can record their wish list for Santa! 

My grandson Kaleb received this card too.

The verse inside 

My daughter took the cards home for Kaleb and snapped pictures while he opened and inspected them. She took them with her camera so they aren't the best, but you get the idea...look how excited my granson is! He couldn't wait to open them, knowing they came from Grandma & Grandpa.

 Kaleb reading the card

He's recording his wish list to Santa! What fun to see him enjoying the cards so much. :)

  2. Those are fantastic cards. You certainly can't beat Hallmark. Your grandson looks like he really enjoyed his card. Kids just love to get their own cards in the mail. I mailed mine out today and the envelopes were covered in Santa stickers. I'd just love to win this give away.

  3. Lovely cards and I am enjoying some Hallmark Christmas movies that were recorded! Typical little boy to drop the envelope on the floor. Oh, how you must miss him! I don't want to enter the contest but the cards are very nice. Nancy
