GIVEAWAY - Postcards by Monday, August 1, 2011 ~ 9:11 a.m.

Hey guys! I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was pretty restful, and I had some time to catch up with some friends and family that I haven't seen in a while, which is always nice. Before I get back to the regular scheduled programming, I wanted to make a special little announcement. Well, two announcements, actually. First, have you noticed my new banner just above? Designed that puppy myself with the help of my super brilliant husband, who worked on the menu functionality (which is a whole lot more complicated than it looks, I'll tell you). I've actually been dabbling in graphic design lately, and am slowly finding and learning new ways to improve upon the aesthetics of my blog. We actually made several minor changes to the website this weekend, but I won't bore you with all of them! Anyway, I hope you guys like the new cleaner look as much as I do! :)

Now, for announcement #2...Yep, you've guessed it (or read it in the blog title)....I've got a GIVEAWAY for you this week! I'm excited to partner with the online printing company, Uprinting to giveaway 100 5 x 7 postcards to one lucky A Paper Proposal reader. You can check out more of the details below, but my favorite giveaway detail of all? You get to design them yourself! Which means you can use them for your Save the Date cards, "Just Married" cards, engagement, baby or moving announcements...whatever floats your boat.

All of the details on how to enter to the giveaway are listed below, and this Friday, one comment will be selected at random to win the postcards by Uprinting.

There are multiple ways to enter the giveaway:

1. Fill me in on what you'd use your postcards for! Don't worry, your answer won't be judged in any way.

2. Receive an extra entry by tweeting the giveaway to your followers. Just be sure to include #Giveaway and @APaperProposal in your tweet, and remember to leave an extra blog comment below telling me you did it, so you get that extra entry!

i.e. Just entered the postcard #giveaway on @APaperProposal!

3. "Like" A Paper Proposal on Facebook.

4. Follow A Paper Proposal on Twitter.

Hi, I have tweeted about this already! I would use the cards as engagement announcements, since we haven't been able to set a date yet.
