Trimommy Review and Giveaway: Banana Blossom Press

I love cards.

I like to receive them (even if my husband of 11 years hasn't quite figure that out just yet.)  I like to give them.  I love to stand at the store and read through many cards until I find just the right one.  Sometimes I'll buy a card with no one to give it to yet, knowing that there will come the perfect time to send it to someone yet unknown.

While I was in Seattle last month, I met Maria from Banana Blossom Press at the Aflac Iron Girl expo.  She was selling awesome cards for athletes of all types to celebrate PR's, success, failure, birthdays, everyday, friendship and more.  I picked one up for a friend of mine who had just finished her first marathon, and since, Maria and I have kept in touch.


The cards are very simple with a clean design, and I just love what they have to say.  Here are just a few of my faves:




INSIDE {you win some / you lose some}


 INSIDE {i want to hear yours / congratulations on finishing}


 INSIDE {on your tri}


 INSIDE {famous last words}


INSIDE {congratulations on your new running partner}

Maria from Banana Blossom Press has kindly offered to give a Trimommylife reader a set of 5 cards of your choosing!  Here's how you can enter (please leave a separate comment for each entry):

1.  Hop on over to the Banana Blossom Press website and tell me which card is your favorite and why. 
2.  Follow my blog, or tell me if you already do!
3.  Like Banana Blossom Press on Facebook.
4.  Follow me on Twitter @trimommykelly
5.  Blog, tweet or post on Facebook about this giveaway.

I will randomly choose a winner on Monday, October 11.

  3. My favorite card is "best training partner Ever"
    I would want to give it to my best friend and running partner. She won't run in a race but she will train with me. She helped me prepare for my 1st 10K at Aflac Iron Girl in Del Mar. And I appreciate her very much. I already read/follow your blog and have been following you on twitter too :)
