A Little Bit of Sunshine...and Cardstore Review!

Monday, July 29, 2013

I found the idea for this from my good friend Christina's blog a bit ago and immediately knew I wanted to make my own version whenever someone I love was in need of a little bit of cheering up.
Seeing as the BFF had been having a crazy time the past few weeks, I thought it was the perfect reason to give her a little yellow/sunshine "cercy" package to let her know I was thinking about her. 
I scouted out the local Target, Trader Joe's, and Homegoods to stock up on the goodies and assembled my package...the final contents included:
Body Butter / Kitchen Hand Soap / Sharpie Highlighters / Notecards / Sour Patch Kids / Large Wooden Paper Clip / Candle / Coronas (hehe) / Extra Gum / Cocktail Napkins / Butter Cookies / Breath Mints
I worked with the fabulous website Cardstore to design a custom card to tell her hello and give her a little info about her basket of fun. To say that I am now hooked on the store would be an understatement. You can upload pictures to include on the card, have the option to write your own text/quote/caption, and you can even have them mail the card to the receiver if you want to get it to them faster. It's the same price as any other greeting card without having to pick one up at the store, yet that personal touch makes it all the more fun to give...definitely check Cardstore out for any of your stationery (invites, greeting cards, notes) needs. 
Gift giving gets me so excited!!

  2. I LOVE custom cards! If you'd like a little laugh... google "JibJab cards". They're little electronic (video) e-cards that you can customize by uploading pic's of your family and friends. There's nothing better than watching your family/friends star in their very own cartoons!

  11. We used cardstore.com (or treat.com is great too) to make and send out Christmas cards last year. I just typed in all our address, and they addressed, stamped, and sent them out. So so easy! :)
