A BIG Cyber Monday Announcement : Brenda's Marketplace is now Open {with a great day of savings to celebrate}

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday. I spent the weekend with my family decorating for the holidays {while our little one kept un-decorating the tree} and working on something behind the scenes for the big reveal today. I'm SO EXCITED about this super fun launch! Brenda's Marketplace is now officially open on my blog. I'm thrilled to launch my very own shop, right here on the blog!!! You will find handmade paper goodies and accessories with custom invitations coming very soon in your choice of pre-printed and print-at-home. Nearly all the paper goods have a bit of glittery goodness in them and I've created cupcake toppers, holiday cards, holiday gift tags, wine tags and thank you note cards. You will even find fun floral hair pins and decorative cupcake wrappers. There's lots of great stocking stuffers in the collection!

To celebrate the launch, I am offering 20% off all orders today until 11:59 pm est with coupon code cybermonday and FREE Shipping if your order total is over $30 with coupon code freeship - both codes can be applied to one order!

Believe it or not, there's still time to receive your holiday cards if you order from Tiny Prints by tomorrow {December 20th}. That is the absolute last day to use their Super Rush shipping and guarantee delivery by Christmas Day.

If you are giving them in person, you can have them delivered to you so that you can write in them and hand them out. If you are mailing them, you won't be able to write in them, but at least you can have Tiny Prints mail them for you. You can even have some sent to you and some mailed for you.

Just because you are waiting until the last minute doesn't mean the cards have to be generic or boring. With Tiny Prints, even in the rush, you can take a few moments to personalize the cards. You can upload some pictures, change the font and text, and make your cards stand out, even if they arrive just in time.

The clock is ticking...it only takes a few minutes to create and send the perfect cards. Just follow these simple steps:

1. Choose from 100's of Tiny Prints Holiday / Christmas card designs.
2. Add your photos and tweak the text to your liking.
3. Use the promo code 20DECSW to save at least 15%.

Just because you waited until the last minute doesn't mean you have to send bad cards. Head on over to Tiny Prints and select your favorite design.

40% off a Gorgeous Calligraphy Font + Holiday Notecard Printables

Debi of Lettering Art Studio just recently announced the launch of her gorgeous calligraphy font Dom Loves Mary on MyFonts.com. Debi has hosted several giveaways for my readers and is now offering her font at 40% off thru the end of November with coupon code "bloglove". It is the PERFECT wedding font and along with the separate styles of the script font and the accompanying flourishes - you can even purchase a set of "ADD ON" words that are the most commonly used words for wedding projects such as Save the Date, RSVP, Respond, Celebration, Bride, Groom, and, to, of, the, and others.

Since I have a background in graphic arts - I always love adding new fonts to my collection. So, once I had Debi's font I knew I wanted to design holiday notecards. The following notecards featuring the Dom Loves Mary font are now available for purchase in my etsy shop. They are sold as templates that let you print as many as you want for one low price of $10.

Don't forget about the Dom Loves Mary calligraphy font at 40% off thru November 30th with coupon code "bloglove". It's too good of a deal to miss out on.

Please sign up online to become a part of this Holiday Card Swap and share some holiday cheer with others across the US, Canada and Internationally.
