Go HERE to enter this giveaway for a chance to win some FREE CHRISTMAS BABY SHOWER INVITATIONS or a $50 gift card that you can use to buy baby announcements, Holiday cards or any kind of greeting cards that you choose! And since the sponsor of the blog giveaway contest,CardsDirect, has a reputation of having inexpensive inventory of designs, there's no doubt in my mind that you can find something to buy with your FREE GIFT CARD should you win.
The giveaway closes on December 7th, (the gift code that the winner receives as a prize will expire on 12/31/10) so if you should want to buy Christmas cards with your credit, they should be printable in plenty of time for delivery.
And speaking of printable Christmas baby shower invitations, I actually found some that are pretty cute. You have to scroll to the bottom of the page to get to the templates on this page. The free printable Christmas baby shower Bingo games are way down at the bottom of the page, too. But, it's worth the effort since both of the templates are decent looking which is far better than most of the others that are available. Frankly, most of the ones that came up when I did a search were so cheap looking that I wouldn't send those free Christmas baby shower invitations out to my friends if I had to walk from house to house to invite them to the shower much less hand them over to the mailman and pay postage. I would rather send out e baby shower invitations using Pingg.com or some other online e card service.
I have to tell you, unless you are a crafts and scrapbooking expert with lots of cardmaking supplies on hand I find it hard to justify spending the time to make your own baby shower invitations. You can buy beautiful, personalized cards for less than $1 each that come ready to mail. All you have to do is lick a stamp, stick them in the mailbox and be on your merry way! In my book, that beats sitting at a computer praying that you have enough colored ink in your printer cartridge to cover what's needed for the (always less than satisfactory in my experience) free Christmas baby shower invitations. This is one project that I am more than happy to leave to the professional printing companies. But winning invitations in a contest is another thing altogether and entering to win free baby stuff is much more my style not to mention time cost effective.
