It's in the Cards (another contest!!!!)

It's that time of year again!  Get out your cards, your envelopes, your postage and give the ol' USPS something to do.  Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, it's time to get busy on those Christmas cards!

Far be it from us to send just the average holiday greeting.  Sure, I have some nice cards picked out to send our family & friends, but the Frenchies wanted a little something special to wish their own furiends a special holiday.  So a few weeks ago they sat down at the laptop to visit one of our favorite sites, CafePress.

Not only were we able to design so way-cool cards for ourselves, but our awesome friends at CafePress have have extended a chance for one of our followers to get a little something special for the holidays as well.  At the end of this post we'll tell you how the rest of you pups can sign up for a chance to win your very own personalized cards to send out this season!

Alright, sis.  Let's get down to business here!

I'll push the keys, you work the mouse - OK Carmen?
CafePress has so many things to chose from, and there are hundreds of holiday cards.  You just decide on a design, upload your own pictures and then add some personalized text.  Easy as pie, right kids?

Decisions, decisions!
Oooh, love that pink one, don't you Brute?
Nah - way too girly, Carmen!  But look at this cool one!
OMD.  How will we ever agree on the perfect card???
I had to step in and make some final decisions, since out of hundreds of choices Brutus & Carmen just couldn't pick one.  Once we submitted our order to CafePress, it only took a few days for our fabulous cards to arrive.  The Frenchies couldn't wait to start working on their mailing list.

Cards, envelopes, mailing labels, stamps - check!  Now how the heck am I gonna use this pen with no thumbs??
Time to get busy.  Carmen, you get to work on the envelopes.
Carmen?!?!  This is no time for your beauty rest!
Sheesh!  What is with these girls???
Come on, Carmen, wake up!  Get with the program here or we'll never get these cards out!
The Frenchies have realized how very few of our furiend's snail-mail addresses we have!  They want to be able to send out every last one of their cool cards from CafePress, and they do so love getting mail of their own!  If you'd like to do a card exchange with us, please drop Brutus & Carmen a line at:


Now, here's how to ENTER our card giveaway: 

If you want to have your very own cool cards from CafePress to send out, here's what you need to do.  Just leave a comment after this post saying you'd like to enter our custom Chirstmas card drawing.  And you better get busy with those dreaded holiday photo shoots, because you'll want an awesome picture to put on the card!  Since time is of the essence, we'll leave the post open for comments until only this Friday (Dec 3rd).  Then we'll do an impartial & much-acclaimed Frenchie drawing to pick one lucky winner!
