Night Owl Christmas Cards Giveaway


When it comes to anything design-related, I can be crazy picky.  That's why I created Shabby Blogs in the first place and I'm afraid I am no less anal these days than I was in the beginning.  That means Shabby Blogs is top notch when it comes to quality and cuteness, but it also means I can be a total pain in the derriere.

Take ordering Christmas cards, for example.  I've been to sooooo many sites and looked through sooooo many designs, but nothing was awesome enough.  I know I could probably design my own, but this is such a busy time of year and I'm honestly just not up for the time or hassle it would be.  Having said all of this, you can imagine how insanely excited I was when I recently happened upon Night Owl Paper Goods...whose designs, I have to say, are INCREDIBLY awesome!!!  Super sweet serendipity at its absolute finest, folks!  As soon as I landed on their site, I knew it was exactly what I had been searching for.  If you already knew about them, shame on your for not telling me!  I am in love!!!  After I finished drooling over their Christmas cards and everything else on their site, I immediately contacted them to see if they would be interested in offering you a giveaway.  Maybe I'm just weird (I totally am), but it is so exciting to me when I discover neat companies who make neat things and it is hard for me not to pass the neatness on to others.  And these folks are as sweet as their products are too- which makes me twice as happy!

There are so, so, so many things I love about this small company.  SO many!  I'm going to order my own Christmas cards through Night Owl later tonight, but I'm totally stalling because I can't decide on which design I love the most.  Not only are their Christmas cards to-die-for, but they have the coolest options I've seen out there.  For starters, they print on wood.  WOOD, people!  The only thing more awesome than getting a customized card in the mail that is made of real wood is being the person who sent the awesome card made of real wood.

You can also have your cards printed on paper- which is still completely awesome because their designs, themselves, are some of the coolest I've seen.  Some of them are even actual ornaments with a tag so they can be hung on the recipient's Christmas tree!  Will someone please send me one of those?  I'm dead serious.  I don't just want to send ornament cards to people, but I want people to send them to me so I can see the cuteness on my tree each year.  Brilliant!

Another super awesome thing about Night Owl cards?  You get to choose from nine different options for the backs of your cards as well!  They have super cute patterns or you can choose to put another one or two of your own photos on the back.  You can even write out a whole message or put a super cool calendar back there!  Again, just one more reason why I am stalling on my order.  I can't decide because I love them all!  It would be totally weird to send each person on our card list 3 different cards, right?  Yeah.  That's even weird for the Hastings family.  Sigh.  I would if I could though!

See why Night Owl has completely won me over?  If you are smitten too, fly on over to their site and take a look around!  Leave a comment on this post letting us know which of their cards you love the most and we'll select one of you to win a $75 gift card to their store!  (I told you they were nice!)  I'll have my favorite random person picker (who also happens to be my 4-year-old) pick a lucky winner next Monday evening, November 26th.  If you can't wait that long, don't let that stop you!  Right now you can use the coupon code JOY2012 to get 15% off your order!  Whether you want to wait for the giveaway or place your order right away, I hope you have an easier time than I've had trying to choose only one favorite!


Owl the best of luck to you!!!
