Cards and Good Cheer

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas in the MOO offices - Greeting Cards are flying off the presses, and London is seasonably cold and damp.

Sensible Denise looked at the weather forecast for this week and decided it was the perfect time to visit Petra in the Jordanian Desert; she's left me in charge of the blog. Hello!

We're not letting the rain get us down yet! Moo's contribution to the Holiday spirit this year isn't limited to our fab Greeting Cards. We're also running a Super-Duper Holiday Card Competition for the best designs submitted to our special flickr group.

We've been amazed at the response - over a thousand of you have joined the flickr group, and we have nearly 3000 different designs available in the People Powered Holiday Card Store. You can find the perfect Holiday card for just about anyone in there. Don't believe me? Lets have a look...

What if... your boyfriend is a huge Doctor Who fan? Well, make him a card with this picture from Henry Pupkin:

Glasgow At Christmas

What if... you know a six year old girl who loves pink things and Dinosaurs? Carolyn Coles has you covered.

Joy to the World

What if... your sister is a sophisticated, glamorous booze hound? sjmaeff has the perfect design:

mmm

What if... your Dad is in to street art AND the history of public transport? daveknapik has a card for him:

merry xmas

What if... your best mate is into goth rock and only ever wears black? twisted-butterfly totally has their scene:

snowflake invert

You see? It's all covered.

A lot of people have been asking which designs are in with a chance of winning the best-selling prize. I don't want to give away the list and spoil the surprise, but here - in no particular order - are five of the current top fifty designs. The running is really close, so tell your friends about your cards, and use our linking tool, too.

The best thing about the competition is that every entry is available to buy, and for every pack sold, a dollar goes to Médecins Sans Frontières. So, you get the perfect card, a talented designer wins a prize, and together we're helping MSF make the world a better place. That's proper holiday spirit.

Before I go, I should mention that our MiniCard holders are flying off the shelves - we'll be getting more soon, so if you haven't been able to get the colour you wanted, check back soon.

Phew! That's all for now. Toodle Pip!
