Today, November 17th, we are Giving Away Products from TWO Companies...(CLOSED)


GIVEAWAY #1: Cards Sets from Any Horrible Occasion
to THREE Different Winners


Have you ever received a Thank You card from someone to whom you had sent a Get Well card? Believe it or not, I actually did last month. I sent my friend, who unfortunately broke her pelvis in an ATV accident, this card from Any Horrible Occasion:

The inside inscription reads, "Like a Kidney Stone"

She sent me the thank you card to let me know that the card had made her and her husband laugh and that it had brightened their day.

Mission Accomplished.

Last week I sent another friend, who had something unfortunate happen to her recently, a scarf and this card from Any Horrible Occasion:

The inscription reads "When it rains, it pours"

She sent me the following in an email:

"Just want you to know how fun it was getting a flippin' awesome scarf in the mail along with a flippin' awesome card that made me laugh and cry all at the same time. Love the card...it's so my kind of humor. Thank you so much for taking the time to brighten my day."

Any Horrible Occasion has this to say about their unique cards:

"Your best friend was just diagnosed with cancer. You're looking through the card racks and see yet another sympathy card with pretty flowers and 'I'm so sorry!' printed in fancy letters. Seriously? Yes it's terrible. She has two dozen cards to remind her of how everyone is solemnly thinking of her 'in this difficult time'. But where's the card to make her laugh?? Always funny and never mean, Any Horrible Occasion cards talk honestly about the worst that life dishes out-- divorce, cancer, taxes, menopause, and yes, even a birthday."

I whole-heartedly agree with Any Horrible Occasion's theory. When I received their cards for review, I was having a good ole' time reading and laughing at the cards. On the back of each card you'll find funny facts (some true, some not) about the famous painting or sculpture pictured on the card (those little facts had me in stitches).

Allow me to show you just one more of my favorites:

Inscription: May all your dreams for retirement come true.

The thing is, when you read one of their cards, you will know just the right person to send the card. But be warned: after you send it to that person, be prepared to hear how much he or she liked it.

Want to hear something that's just as cool as Any Horrible Occasion's cards? They're offering the readers of Give Away Today FREE SHIPPING for the rest of November on orders of 3 or more cards. You will need to select "Free Shipping" when you place your order.

Today Any Horrible Occasion is giving away:
First Winner: 24 cards of their choice
Second Winner: 12 cards of their choice
Third Winner: 6 cards of their choice

No matter where you reside in this fine world of our's, you can enter to win up to FOUR times today.

For one entry, leave your first and last name in a comment.
Example: Jane Doe

For a second entry, please visit Any Horrible Occasion's website here. Look at their hilarious cards and then return to Give Away Today and in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and a card of Any Horrible Occasion's that you like.
Example: Jane Doe: Another card of AHO's that I like is One Good Thing--I am going to give it to my grandpa-in-law for his birthday. Each year at his party when he receives a card, it is passed around for all to see. I think everyone will think One Good Thing is a witty one.

For a third entry, in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and the names of three people who you think could use a funny card from Any Horrible Occasion. Remember, Any Horrible Occasion is offering FREE SHIPPING when you buy three or more cards.
Example: Jane Doe: Faye, Marge, and Coke

For a fourth entry, see the companies on the left-hand side of Give Away Today? They have some great products for you or someone you know for Christmas. Visit at least three of their shoppes and then in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and the three companies you visited.
Example: Jane Doe: Toy Box Tees (cutest tees); PhotoKami (priceless pictures); and Snuggleluv (adorable clothing)

The winners of the cards of choice from Any Horrible Occasion will be announced tomorrow Wednesday, November 18th. Please visit us then to see if you are our winner and to discover our new giveaway for the day. Thanks!
