I like the Joyful Noel card. Very cute holiday cards! And I love taking my own grocery sacks to the store. It's an easy way I can help the environment.

Chrissy said...

The Spiral Flower Surprise card is my favorite. My favorite green tip lately is line drying my clothes instead of using the dryer. Thanks :-)

Knitmomma said...

Snowy, Starry Holiday is my favorite I think!

Hm...I like bringing my own grocery sacks to the store, and being increasingly mindful of where my purchases were made or grown.

Aimee said...

I love the "Vintage" Christmas design. So fun!!

As far as my favorite green tip - I'm big into bringing my own grocery bags to the store, plus we're HUGE recyclers.

Jennifer from Ohio said...

Wow, it is cruel to make us pick just one favorite!!! I guess right now my favorite would be:
Christmas Snowflake
They are all so beautiful.
I am going to second Kelly and the other commenters that mentioned using re-usable grocery bags. It is simple and they pack so much better and make me feel like I am at least making an effort.

Kim @ What's That Smell said...

My favorite card is the Gingham Gingerbread Man because I'm looking for one that I can put 3 photos in, plus the gingerbread man is cute!

My favorite green tip definitely has to to with re-usable bags but for gift giving. Whether you make your own or buy green totes, I think we all need to stop buying wrapping and disposable gift bags and start using re-usable ones.

Thanks!

I like the Hanukah Ocean Menorah card. My environment tip is to compost. It is easier than you think. cardeb2@verizon.net

Radiowxman said...

the spruce tree is my favorite by far. All are pretty cool though.

Best tip? We use renewable bags when shopping. It's not nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be!

Anonymous said...

I like the Little Bit'a Sky Lace Thank You and recycling is my favourite. Thanks titanicluck at gmail dot com

peg42 said...

Thank you so much for this giveaway. What a great selection of cards. My favorite is the Chocolate Candy Stripe card. My best green tip is to install energy saving light bulbs throughout your home. We've found that the cost of the bulbs is made up in the cost of energy we have saved and in addition, the bulbs last quite a bit longer. Thanks so much.

stacey said...

I like the Holiday Swirls pattern. I know other people said it but I am a fan of recycling as well - the place we moved to recently makes it pretty easy so I am a fan. There are so many things that are simple that can go a long way! Thanks for the entry.

Sandy said...

holiday snowman...hmm...we only use the car on full trips and is it a need or want, can it wait and we consilate the trip to the area so we are not double tripping...also dryer gets shut off and clothes hung up more, and recycle magazines to schools to cut up or nursing homes/hospitals to read

I really like the Cranberry Holiday Wrap cards on Paper Shout. What's the best tip for being green? Oh gosh, there are many, but I think one of the simplest is making sure the lights stay off and all appliances and electronics are unplugged when they aren't being used.

Green tip: get rid of those paper goods! We use cloth napkins, cleaning rags, and reusable dinnerware and lunch box containers. As long as you only run full dishwasher or washing machine loads, reusables will always beat disposables.

The Christmas Holly is quite nice. I like that these cards are made from recycled paper. I've stopped buying bottled water. I bought a filtering pitcher instead, and always have cold filtered water on hand. A couple of reusable bottles are all I need to carry water with me.
