Free Fridays in March--Week Three!

UPDATE: Before you post a comment, make sure to read below. :) There's something that you have to include in your comment to be entered in the drawing. :) (Hint, hint...go vote!)
It's WEEK THREE of FREE FRIDAYS IN MARCH! I'm formally introducing another new Keep in Touch Stationery Co. product today! I designed these Birthday Cards in November for a dear friends baby shower, and I've been selling them ever since! However, I wanted to officially introduce them this month along with the other new products.

The Birthday Card set includes 18 cards and was originally designed to use at a baby shower. Those attending the baby shower can write prayers, funny stories or memories, words of encouragement, or questions for the child to ask his/her parents about their memories from that age. On the child's birthday for the next 18 years, he/she will receive that year's birthday card from his/her parents. It's a wonderful opportunity to cover this precious life with words of encouragement and prayers throughout the next 18 years of his/her life--all before entering the world! Please read my original post in November about the set (designed for a girl) and my February post revealing the set for little boys! Both posts have more pictures of some of the 18 cards!

I have already sold several sets of the cards, and I have some creative customers, who have found other fun ways to use these cards! One customer bought a set for her soon-to-be 1 year old daughter, and she is going to have those attending her daughter's birthday party to write notes in the 18 cards. Another mother bought a set and is planning to write a special message to her daughter on her birthday from year to year. She wanted her to have a "keepsake set" so that her daughter can keep them and read them again and again. Another customer bought a set to use simply for birthday cards! If you have young children like me, you know how many birthday parties we're invited to! What a great idea to have a "stash" at home. No last minute trips to Target to buy a $3 card!

The Birthday Cards are the third "FREE FRIDAYS IN MARCH" item
. This week I need your help! Currently the "First Birthday" card in the "girl" set is a pink sheep with yellow and pink polka dots (so cute!). I recently used the pink sheep for some invitations, and I used pink and brown polka dots (also, so cute!). (In the pictures above, the last two pictures are examples of what I'm referencing.) So, I'm thinking to change the card from pink & yellow to pink & brown. So, when leaving your comment, you have to vote "pink & yellow" or "pink & brown" to officially be entered in the free drawing. Leave a comment below before 11:59 pm (CST) on Sunday, March 22, and I will pick one lucky customer to have a free set*! Check back on Monday to see the lucky winner!

Also, I'll go ahead and tell you the SURPRISE for those of you that don't win. (Yes, I have something for everyone!!). These Birthday Cards are "Buy 1, Get 1 Free" through March 31. The set of 18 cards/envelopes sells for $20, so through the end of the month you can get TWO SETS FOR $20. That's an excellent deal! Don't forget to look back at the items from Free Fridays in March--Week One (Happy Birthday Enclosure Cards) and Free Fridays in March--Week Two (Thank You Notes w/Bible verses) because they, too, are "Buy 1, Get 1 Free" through the end of the month. :) They're SOOOOOOOOO cute!

Have a great weekend! In the meantime, let's keep in touch!

What an awesome idea. I try to write each grandchild a special letter remembering the year past on their birthday. I am partial to pink and brown. BUT, how about pink and lime green?

Stephanie Steele said...

I vote for pink and brown. Happy first day of spring!! :)

Shanna Bauman said...

Well I'm feeling it this week! Some of these people are eliminated since they didn't vote for a color! WAHOO! That ups my chances! I'm voting for Pink and Brown because I'm a fan of browns! And I think blue and brown would be totally cute for my little boy.

Glenna Marshall said...

Okay, tough decision! I think I will go with the pink and yellow. Pink and brown is really popular right now, so it might sell better, but I think I prefer the pink and yellow.

Hey Suzanne,
I love the idea for the birthday cards! When I was 16, my mom gave me cards every year she had written on my birthday. It is a very precious gift and I think it is a great idea that you created those 18. I LOVE the pink and yellow 1st birthday cards!!
