Ok last give-away for these Christmas Cards and it is easy peasy.

All you have to do is get one of your friends or family to place an order for a Christmas Card jpeg, letting me know who sent them, and you will win yourself a free Christmas Card jpeg of your choice.

That means you send me your photo/s, I place them in the card of your liking, and send the jpeg to you where you get to print as many cards as you want from the location of your choice.

The first three to do this, win!

All order requests can be sent to SarahDawnDesigns@gmail.com

Grand Opening and a Giveaway

Sarah Dawn Designs is officially open for business! You may be asking what kind of business this is? I design semi-custom cards, announcements as well as a little bit of color consultation.

What does "semi-custom" mean? Good question. The idea is that those who have Photoshop will have the option of purchasing and downloading a template. Then if they so choose they can change the color or font on the template and insert their own photos. The templates are of course for personal use only. Unfortunately, this part of this business is not quite ready but be checking back soon for the launch date of my website.

Don't have Photoshop? No problem. The other side of my business is to allow customers to send me their photos and any information they want on their card. Then in return they would be able to download a jpeg file once I have inserted all information. Ideally, this will all be done through my website but once again, it is still under construction. Thus for the Christmas season things are going to be done a little "old school." If you are interested in one of my Christmas cards please email me at SarahDawnDesigns@gmail.com. Send me the photo/s you would like to use and the information you would like on the card. After receiving payment (I will email you the address) I will email you the jpeg file and you can print away.

So how much do these cards cost? Only $10.50. This gets the photo and information put in as well as the copyright to your flattened image. If you see one that you like but the colors aren't quite what you are looking for, a small fee of $2.50 more will get you those color changes.

Below are the first 15 designs. Currently they are in 5 x 7 format but I will make them available in 4 x 6 and 6 1/2 x 7. Check back for more as they are updated. I hoping to be able to double this number by the end of next week.

Christmas cards aren't my only specialty. They just happen to be the first that are done. Thus, if you are interested in say a baby announcement or wedding announcement, shoot me an email and I'll see what I can do for you.

Now what is a "Grand Opening" without a giveaway? You guessed it, I am giving away one of these Christmas Cards to one of you lucky readers.

How do you enter? Well, you have three different options.

1.) Become a follower of my blog. Then leave me a comment letting me know you are a follower and which card is your favorite.

2.) Find "Sarah Dawn Designs" on Facebook and "Like" my page. Then leave me a separate comment on this blog letting me know that you completed this.

3.) Finally, link to my blog on either your blog or Facebook page. Leave another comment on this blog confirming this.

This means you could have up to three chances (three separate comments) to win a Christmas card.

The giveaway will end at midnight on November 17th.

Good luck!
