12 Days of Giveaways: Day 1 with Minted

HAPPY DECEMBER!!!!! I can’t believe this month is finally here and that our twins will be here this month… it’s crazy to think about but also so exciting! 

Earlier this week I mentioned that I was doing Twelve Days of Giveaways for YOU, my readers and followers, for the holidays! Starting today through December 12th I’ll be partnering with some of my favorite brand and doing 12 straight days of giveaways!!! And today I’m excited to kick off Day 1 with Minted! Every year I use Minted to make my Christmas cards. Getting Christmas cards in the mail and seeing how our friends and families are growing is always so fun! This year we are waiting for the twins to arrive before we take our Christmas card photos (you can see our photos from last year here), so it might end up being a New Years Card. But I’ll be sure to post about it when I order them so you guys can see!

Ok, now let’s get to the fun part!!!! Today Minted is giving away a $500 holiday gift card to ONE lucky Ivory Lane reader!!!! This is the perfect opportunity to create your Christmas card and get them sent out for the season!
