Minted’s highly-anticipated holiday photo card challenge is here! Every year, Minted hosts a mammoth competition in search of the best and freshest holiday photo card designs. Independent designers participate from all over the world. There are an astounding 4108 entries this year! So, yes, the stakes are high!! I submitted 31 designs this year. It was a bit of a mad dash to the finish line since I was really pressed for time, but hopefully I’ve got a winner in here somewhere. 😉 Of course, you can help improve my chances by taking a few minutes to vote on my entries! Voting is open until Tuesday, May 27th at 9am and my designs can be found at the image links below or look for Hooray Creative starting on this page, right here.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! It’s not too late to order a new calendar for 2014 and if you want something extra special, I definitely recommend Minted’s customizable photo calendars. I have 1 design for sale and it’s available in 2 sizes (the standard retails for $29 & the grand is $39). I’ve order a Minted calendar for myself before and can vouch for the excellent quality. The paper is thick and luxurious and you can customize each calendar month with your own photos and text.   Watercolor Brush Standard  and  Grand Calendars by Hooray Creative at Also, I don’t know about you, but the holiday season flew by for me this year! With so much to do in December, it can be tough to buy holiday cards well enough in advance to actually mail out in time for Christmas. If you procrastinated or missed out, you can still send a New Year’s card! I have a few for sale on Minted.
