A break in the heat: Christmas in July!

Are you already tired of the heat? Ready for a break to cool down this summer weather? Well have we got just the ticket for you!

Our dare for the next six weeks is to create Christmas cards! Yes, Christmas cards. We start mailing them out to our heroes around the end of September, and last year we handled 35,000 during the three months of holiday shipping. We're hoping to spread out some of that work a little by getting some of our holiday cards in and packed up early!

The challenge: Make winter & holiday cards:
  • secular (snowmen, santas, etc with Happy Holiday type messages)
  • religious (Merry Christmas, religious imagery - nativities etc)
  • general winter (love you, miss you, birthday, thinking of you - that have wintery imagery)
  • special holiday (specifically Hannukkah!)
Entries: For each winter/holiday card you send in to any shipper by the deadline, you'll receive an entry for the random drawing.

Bloggers: Help get the word out and post a blinkie or blogpost about the challenge and link it back to this thread — that will get you an extra 5 entries! (Leave a comment with a link to your blog!) We'll add more blinkies to this post for you soon, as well as more general CFH blinkies on our Resources page.

The prize: A flat rate box chock full of crafting goodies!! PS If anyone would like to offer additional prizes, please email us!

Deadline: August 15th!
