Card Contest

I can't believe it's been almost 6 months since my last post. I blame Facebook.

Anyway, I have a very special reason to come back to the blog. I need a vote! You see, there's this cool Hallmark contest that I think is just genius. I decided to enter it, so this past weekend, I was taking photos for their current category of "Birthday His Way." I tried to think of good photos that would work for a guy birthday card, so I came up with these.

Please vote on your favorite. And if you have any good ideas of messages to go with, let me know. (I think winners only get like $250, so I'll take you to lunch or something if you have a great idea to help me out.) Or take your own photo and send it to me. I love creative contests like this.

Something about how "We will turn the lights off just for your b-day" (Idea courtesy of Vicki)

Something about "Take your pick. It's your day."

Something fishing related...

I don't have a message for this one, but I think it's just funny. I wanted to say "If the early bird gets the worm, then what does the old guy get." But Steve said that wasn't funny at all.

Something about just relaxing; I just like the lighting in this shot.

I like #2. I think it's so cool how you always do these contests and creative stuff.

Steve said...

Number 2.

"It's your birthday. Have it your way."

I also like #2, but I wish we could have gotten the lighting that you have in the last one.

I really like how that third picture looks like it's sitting on the water.

I think the one of Anna could say something like:
I'm ready to go fishing! and then Happy birthday, Daddy!

LOL, I should have known you'd totally be up for the Hallmark contest. :)
