Last Weekend to Vote & Buy your Mother's Day Cards

Just a reminder that Sunday is the last day to vote and buy your Mother's Day cards. And if you're not currently in the lead, fear not! Think about all those procrastinators out there (myself included) that might not have made the trip to the store yet or maybe have yet to remember that Mother's Day is this weekend. (If you happen to know one, give them a friendly reminder to help them save face, why don't ya?)

If you've ever been to the card section during a holiday weekend you know exactly what I mean. Most of the public will be making the trip and fighting the crowds this weekend. We have a term for this in the card biz - we call it the fanny factor. There are only so many fannies that can fit in front of the card section and you have to use your fanny to push your way in sometimes! It's fun to watch...really! If you already have your card I still encourage you to watch the fannies in action this weekend, it's quite amusing. And if you feel so inclined to participate in the action, too, I'm sure your aunts, grandmas, cousins, daughters, nieces, best friends, etc, etc, would love to be recognized on this special day too!

To the finalists, be sure to remember all the moms across the country who will be receiving and giving your card on Sunday. Pretty darn cool if you ask me!

Finally, wanted to give a big shout out to all the mother's out there - have a fantastic, well-deserved celebration this weekend. Would love to know how YOU celebrated with the special moms in your life, so feel free to post in the comments section!


The Father's Day Grand Prize action will begin on Monday!
