Valentines give-away and secret postcards

We love postcards!


Just like last year, we are organizing a Valentines day competition / give-away. Why? Well because Astrid is just an old-fashioned romantic and wants to spread the LOVE– that is why 🙂 This year, we came up with the following idea: a double give-away. You tell us who you would want us to send a Valentines card to and why. We will pick 3 people and send a card to the person they asked us to send a card to. But, we will also send a package of postcards to the 3 winners – ain´t that nice? Your loved one gets a card and you get something too! Plus, Astrid gets to send and write 6 cards – which she just loves. So everybody wins here @Cardcetera!

So, what do you need to do? No you don´t have to order – this give-away is free and open for anyone that wants to surprise someone. There are 3 simple steps you need to take:

  1. Post a response here on the blog and tell us in your reaction who should get your card and why. This can be anyone: a brother, sister, mother, father, husband, wife, penpal…
  2. Send us an e-mail (cardcetera <at> with the address of the person you want us to send a card to, plus your own address – if we pick your reaction, you will get cards too!
  3. Post about this give-away on either Twitter (use @Cardcetera in your Tweet) or share this blog or one of our statusses on Facebook. If you don´t, your reaction isn´t valid!
Writing postcards

Writing postcards!

That is all! You have untill Saturday the 9th of February 2013 to respond and send your e-mail with the addresses. We will pick the winners on the 10th and send the cards out then – but as we do not want to spoil the surprise, we won´t post who won untill Februari 15th – so it will be a surprise on the 14th if you get the cards.

One last thing: we will try to get the cards there on exactly the 14th – but we can´t garantee this will actually work as we have to depend on the postal service doing it´s work. So if you want to be a 100% sure your loved one gets a card on Valentines day itself, well please send one yourself!

    Oh, what a great action.

    The one person who came to my mind instantly, is my dad’s girlfriend. Since he died (on March 17 a year ago) she had a hard time living without him. In the beginning, we’ve talked and talked but at one point – a few weeks after the birth of my daughter – that stopped. I think she’s very lonely and for some strange reason, I’m a bit scared to call her. Afraid of how she will react. So she could really use a bit of extra love, because she’s missing her soulmate so badly.

    I’d choose to send this to one of my best friends (10 years and counting). Last year she had a very bad year…many terrible things happened in her life, family, job, and more. She has been depressed and has lost her optimism. I think it would cheer her up to get mail and know that I am thinking of her (of course I’ve been sending her Cardcetera cards, too)!

    Thank you for such a thoughtful giveaway. It’s sure to make some people very happy!

    A person that I choose is my little sister. For the first time in our lives she is away at college. I’m proud that she went, but I miss her very much. She is also terribly homesick and wants to move back home and go to the local college. A card would help cheer her up and know that even though we all miss each other, her education comes first and no matter what she decides we’ll support her.

    Hello! A good friend who is going through some difficult times health-wise would love a Valentine postcard to brighten her day! In any case I’ll be sending something to cheer her up so will keep my finger’s crossed that maybe she’ll get a little something extra, too!

    I was so surprised to receive one of the postcard packages in my mail this morning. Thank you, Astrid! 🙂 I am sick with the flu, so it makes a bad day more bearable. Much gratitude to you all for a wonderful giveaway.
