Eleven steps for a contest is much easier than the short sale process in Nevada ... and this looks like a lot more fun, too!

I double checked before I posted... Followed all the rules. I designed the back side of my card which shows the greeting (paragraph) by the address and included that photo in the post. So I didn't re-type the paragraph. No need to, right?

Woo Hoo, Adding in that paragraph was a great idea. When I do the contest for the ActiveRainPhotoBlogger group this next year, I will be sure to add this in type of paragraph in. Stoke of genius! And it really sets the right tone and gets the word out with each new post that others can join in the fun, which is the main reason we have the contests.
