a GIVEAWAY and a big thank you from the bottom of my heart!



I'm so excited! My first ever giveaway here at Abide With Me!

I was so happy to have gone back to some of my favorite photos I've taken this past year-- as well as a few of my daughter Eliza's-- and  give away sets of these in the form of gift cards as Christmas gifts to my family and dear friends.

I wish I had made more, so happy with the way they turned out. Well, after cleaning up a corner of my bedroom in the last few days, I miraculously found another set of twenty cards. My thoughts turned to you, my dear readers and friends and just how much your presence here means to me. (It means the world.) 

Wanting a way to thank you all.

So here's my offering to you. A set of twenty seasonal 5 1/2 x 4 inch blank cards with accompanying white envelopes to give away to your hearts content. A year's supply for every occasion under the sun! Birthdays, Get Well Soon's, I'm Thinking of You's, Thank You's... you name it.

So, if you'd like, just leave a comment here by this Friday, January 4th at 5:00 pm MST (I'll open comments for this special occasion) or over on my Facebook link. I'll pull your name out of a hat and announce the winner on Saturday morning and we'll arrange your contact info by email and then I'll send them off to you wherever you are in the world!

Happy New Year, dear friends.
