Summer is filled with family fun and celebrations for us. Kay will be 4-years-old tomorrow (2nd), the 4th of July, my birthday on the 10th, my brother-in-law on the 11th, my niece on the 17th and the list goes on and on. Of course, there will be plenty of parties, gifts and greeting cards passed around.
As for me, nothing says I love you like a greeting card so I’m always on the hunt for creative card ideas. Now don’t get me wrong, diamonds are welcomed but greeting cards have a special place in my heart. There is something about the love that goes into choosing the perfect greeting card filled with kind words and handwritten signatures. However, the one thing that comes with the greeting card territory is trumping your choice from the previous year.
Thanks to Hallmark, the greeting card pool has just gotten larger with more opportunities to find the perfect greeting card. Now if you know like I know, greeting cards can get pricey so I am loving that the Hallmark Angels have introduced Value Cards. This new selection of greeting cards can be purchased exclusively at Walmart for 47¢ and 97¢.
Honestly, when I first heard about Hallmark Value Cards, I was in side eye mode 😏 . Although Hallmark has a great reputation for greeting cards, I wasn’t sure… you’ve seen those dollar store cards. So I headed to Wally’s World (Walmart) to see what was going on. I must say, I am impressed with the selection and quality available. There are cards for all occasions for less than $1. More so, the messages inside the cards are consistent with the same great quality that Hallmark is known for.
Stop by your closet Walmart store and check out the selection of Value Cards in stock. Stock up on cards and qualify for rewards via the Value Rewards Programs. Yes, you get the cards for the low-low and you earn rewards for every five cards you purchase. WINNING! But most importantly, if you don’t already, start a tradition by sharing greeting cards with your loved ones. A good way to track when you got it is to mark the month and year on the back of the card.
On those days when I’m missing my mom or thinking of my recently deceased friend Kevin, I pull out my greeting cards that they’ve given me throughout the years. I read the messages, reminisce and trace their handwriting in my mind knowing that the message filled card is overflowing with love.
Do you have any traditions as it pertains to greeting cards? Do you collect them?
