Pear Tree Greetings - Christmas Card Review and Thank You Card Giveaway! - CLOSED

This giveaway has ended.

I'm proud to be a Pearista and bring you the latest news and products from Pear Tree Greetings. Recently, Pear Tree Greetings sent me a sample of their Christmas cards, with hundreds of new designs just released for the 2010 Holiday Season. We purchase Christmas cards every year, and I love to order the photo Christmas cards to share with our family.

When I opened up my sample, the first thing that struck me was the quality of the paper the cards are printed on. It is a very heavy card stock, and just the feel of the cards is high end. According to Pear Tree Greetings, the paper is "heavy 100 lb Matte Card Stock, which is also 100% post-consumer recycled". I love that these cards are printed on recycled paper!

I also thought that each card they sent me was just beautiful. Not every design was something I would choose for myself, but every design was classy and modern.

Another special design element that I really like is that the folded card they sent me was decorated both on the front and on the back of the card. It really just makes the card feel much more expensive and unique.

Pear Tree Greetings is a company that I'm proud to represent. Everything they have sent me to sample has been high-quality and something I would definitely use. This is why I'm excited to bring you another giveaway from this great company!

This month's giveaway is a free set of personalized note cards (up to 16 cards) for one of my fabulous readers! These note cards can be used as thank you cards or make great gifts for hostesses, friends, family and beyond. You can choose from their beautiful line of Christmas Thank You Cards, or Thank You Cards for any occasion!

Just a few weekends ago, we went back to Nebraska for a friend's birthday party. Through the grapevine, I received a baby gift from a former student. Mind you, Clara was born in May, and this student has since graduated, so I was pleasantly surprised to recieve a gift from her in October! But, when I opened the gift not only was there an adorable onesie, but there was the best Thank You note I have ever received. This sweet student reminded me why I love teaching, and told me that my smile made her come to school each day and always cheered her up when she was feeling down. It continued on and by the end of the note I was bawling. The note is now sitting up on my jewlery box along with a Valentine's Day card I got from my hubby and a special note from my best friend, all special handwritten memories that I will keep forever.

Handwritten thank yous mean so much, especially in the world we live in today where everything is a click away. So, good luck my friends! I can't wait to hear how you're going to use your Pear Tree Greetings Thank You Cards!
