Get Those Smiles Back! It's GIVEAWAY CONTEST time!

Seriously, have you ever seen a more depressed bunch of clowns? They look like an ad for Oxycodone. Well, I think they're just feeling down because they don't know about today's


Blog Giveaway Contest!

This contest is being sponsored by Uprinting.com.


The prize is 50 custom printed greeting cards with envelopes!
The greeting cards are 7" x 5" (folded to 3.5" x 5").
Includes free ground shipping.

Click on the image of the greeting cards below to see the marvelous design tools you will have available to create
your custom greeting cards!

Greeting cards are an excellent way to say “Hi” and “Hello” to your friends. Not only that, you can also use these for businesses. You can also have your greeting cards customized. By customizing it, you can add some personal photos, graphics, logos, pictures and personal messages. The goal of customizing a greeting card is to create a uniquely personal greeting card that reflects the creativity of the sender.

If you have ever wondered whether the cost of quality printing cards with your artwork featured to sell in your etsy shop, this is a terrific way to test the waters!

Sue said...

LOL...I was just going through one of my vintage pic files and came across the miserable looking clown pic - thought sheesh this is a sad looking bunch! Then I come here to see what revelry you have posted today, and see the same pic! Either I am being haunted by sad clowns this weekend, or 'great minds', etc.

audrey said...

Tristan, what a great give-away!!
I feel guilty entering as I won one of your prizes in the past. But, what the heck, right?
Actually, that group of clowns look more inebriated than they do sad. (:

Sea Witch said...

Giveaway...I could use a giveaway. I love parting gifts, blog sway, STUFF! Love the photo of the lovely circus lady doing the makeup for the clown. There is something appealing about circus and carnival families...I have a fascination with their lives. SEa Witch

Deborah said...

Oh dear. Clowns. My Bad Alice is dreadfully afraid of clowns. When they were teenagers, SPC Ryan used to sneak in her room at night and say in a very high-pitched clown voice, BOBO's in your room! Lovely give-away! **blows kisses** Deb

Queenmothermamaw said...

Hey guess what. Anne sent me. I do follow but due to a Google glitch cannot get on your follower list. I would love to win those cards and would love to be as fine an artist as you and Anne. I am working on it. blessings.

Jennifer Swan Hopkins said...

Hello Tristan - you have a smile post too! TY for visiting. My life just gets more and more interesting, which means less posting.

I must say though, I do think clowns are creepy and am glad to read the comments and see I'm not the only one. My son even does clowning sometimes, doesn't change my opinion, still creepy. He did NOT get that tendancy from me!

Would you do me a favor and use my entry for someone who resonates with you, please? I'd like to offer a little love out to the universe♥

Take care, J
