Guess who’s back? Back again? The 2018 #sendcardsspreadlove Challenge is coming in one month exactly & I couldn’t be more excited!
As some of you may be aware, April is National Card & Letter Writing Month. Which for us stationery and card nerds is a Pretty. Big. Deal. In celebration, I’ll be holding the third annual #sendcardsspreadlove challenge, where I’m straight up challenging you to send at least 4 cards – that’s one per week – totally do-able, right?
The challenge will consist of:
- guest posts galore for inspiration
- letter writing resources & tips
- 4 weekly challenges with prizes + a few bonus challenges
- a private Facebook group for accountability, card-loving friends, support & encouragement (there might be some extra special challenge goodies for members only!)
It’s going to be so much fun and I hope you’ll join us. Festivities begin Monday, April 2nd. Don’t miss out – make sure to sign up here to receive all the goodies to participate (you won’t want to miss out on any of the posts, *bonus content* and FREEBIES for newsletter subscribers ONLY).
Get In The Snail Mail Spirit
So this month, in preparation for the April challenge, I’m brushing up on my letter writing skills & sending out cards now to get everyone in the #snailmail spirit. You can see the card & read the note I wrote below. I hope you’ll join the pre-challenge festivities & make sure to tag @prettybypost & use the #sendcardsspreadlove hashtag so I can find you!
The first card I’m sending is a thank you to my biz bestie for her friendship, support & encouragement. It’s also one of the cards included in the 2018 Challenge Collection (LIMITED EDITION & LIMITED QUANTITIES). ALONG WITH a 48 page downloadable pdf: The Together Journal! (get more details here AND PRE-ORDER NOW – ships out March 19th. (Pssst… there’s a FREE shipping code when you join the challenge list).
Plus, this year we’re offering 2 LIMITED EDITION Collections as suggested by the PbP community after last year’s challenge. You asked for more variety & we listened!
In addition to the 2018 Challenge Collection we’re super excited to offer The Who We Are collection. This set of 5 cards from Carde Blanche is a collaborative effort for women, by women, about women. 10% of proceeds will be donated to Writes for Women, an organization focused on economic and social justice for women. (This also includes the 48 page downloadable pdf The Together Journal!)

A Grateful Note
I just wanted to let you know how much your weekly support, encouragement, advice & accountability have helped me. It’s so gratifying having you in my corner, cheering me on & helping me feel way less alone in this entrepreneur journey.
And I want to let you know how amazing you are. Running a business is no small feat (but especially while working full-time AND embarking on a new milestone in your life – so yay for kicking butt!).
I feel so fortunate to have connected with you. Thank you for being my biz bestie & I look forward to continuing our friendship & businesses together.
