A Dayspring Giveaway and Review!

I love getting mail. Not junk mail or bills, but real mail. The mail that shows up with the familiar handwriting of  a long distance friend or my closest Bible Study gals. I am also a card fanatic. I have been known to spend hours in the card aisle (this was before I had children) and spend much of my meager earnings on special greetings for special friends. This is why I was ecstatic when the  Hope and Encouragement 2011 card pack from Dayspring arrived at my door.
Hope and Encouragement 2011 - 10 Premium Greeting Card Assortment

Encouragement - Life Is Hard Sometimes- 6 Premium Greeting Cards
Praying For You - When Words Are Hard to Find - 6 Premium Greeting CardsI know, I too have been disappointed with packaged or boxed cards. You get one or two good ones and the rest become scratch paper because you can not think of a time or person whom you would send that sentiment. Friends, these are not your lame-o cards. These cards are premium card stock, not that flimsy stuff. They have beautiful designs and heartfelt words. Some even have embellishments and embossing. The best thing about them - I know that I will use each one of them to spread a little Jesica love across the miles (or even just across the street). I have already addressed half of them while the remaining five will be sent to sweet friends at a retreat next month.

In the interest of full disclosure I got these cards for free in exchange for my honest review. Free is the best price, but right now you can purchase these same cards for only $19.99 (or $12.99 if you are a Heart Connection Card Club member).   I guarantee that you will spend at least $35 for the same quality of cards at your local retailer.

Maybe you would like a chance to win twenty bucks to use at Dayspring? The only catch is you will have to pay the S&H charges.
For your chance to win:
1. Leave me a comment telling me what you would buy, along with your e-mail address (so I can contact you if you win!)
Want a second entry?
2. Become a follower or subscribe to my RSS feed - and leave me a comment telling me about it! 

Now, hop on over to their site and browse around at all the goodies! I don't think you will be disappointed and if you have time and a warm drink settle in at (in)courage for some good reading.

This giveaway will close on Tuesday, March 15, 2011, 9:00 PM, MST. Comments now closed!  

Gotta run. I am off the check the mail.


  1. I am with you, Jesica! I love mail and I really like sending it (when I have the time, which right now seems like NEVER! Alas).
    There are a few other things... I like those mantel word things that say JOY or PEACE, or something of the sort.
    How are you!??!

    Hey Jesica!
    I would love to have $20 to spend at Dayspring!!! I really dig the "Mr. and Mrs." coffee mugs and other goodies, and I of course would snag a big box cards to send away in celebration of Spring and hope! You sold me on the encouragement card box:)
