Season's Greetings From Cupcake Cottage!

Hello! The giveaway has closed. I will announce the winner tomorrow.

The title of this post is the name of my latest greeting card. I finally made a holiday greeting card at the request of several store buyers and individual customers. Flossy and Sophie are in their element, baking goodies for the holidays in Cupcake Cottage's kitchen:

It was fun putting this card together, setting up the scene, getting the elements and lighting just so. I made a lot of the miniatures myself, but some special people contributed some of the holiday decor that you see too. Inside, the card reads "Season's Greetings." I've made the card so that it is appropriate for Christmas, solstice, the new year, and so on. I hope you like it!

Life and card selling have kept me so busy lately that I haven't had time to write a new post, visit other blogs (so sorry for that), or hold my promised 4-year blog anniversary giveaway from around April of this year. Now it's finally time to announce the giveaway! The prize is any six of my greeting cards, you choose which cards and how many of each, for a total of six cards. The cards retail for $5 each, so the prize is worth $30!

How to enter the giveaway?

1) Go to my Greeting Card Gallery page and pick the six cards you would like to win. Remember, it can be any combination of cards, six total.

2) Come back here and leave a comment telling me which six greeting cards you've chosen.

That's it! The giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere, follower or not. I'll do a random draw and announce the winner Sunday, November 29, 2015. Good luck everyone, and keep it fun! xoxo Jennifer

  12. Happy anniversary to your blog, I love to read new posts on it.
    Your cards are so lovely ^^
    Kisses from Belgium ;)

  13. I adore your new card - it's so lovely! And it's very generous of you to host a giveaway. I would love to enter :). But because I can't decide which cards (they're all so pretty!)- I would love to be surprised by you if I would win :)

  14. a beautiful, cozy and sweet photo. good job, my sweet friend!
    A big hugs :0)

  15. As always it's great to see a new post from you - but this time... wow! What a fantastic new card for your collection. Yes, customers were right to ask for this... Season's greetings were really missing in your range of wonderful cards - and you've managed to arrange a scene perfect for so many occasions, very happy and cheerful (or should I better say "merry"? *LOL*) Your two little darlings made a wonderful job with this special card. And about your giveaway - what a lovely price... although hard to choose. Well, you know No. 11 would be on my list for sure... and the new one too. Nevertheless please forgive me but I will not take part in this giveaway. You know I make my own cards and anyone who knows me would be confused getting a card that was not handmade by me. So I pass over the chance for this wonderful price to the others - good luck!


  16. Welcome back, Jennifer, I'm glad all is well. Happy belated blog anniversary :D!
    Your newest Christmas card is cute and gorgeous, there are again so many wonderful details to see.
