Minted Eid Cards Giveaway

Eid ul-Fitr, or as we like to call it in Malaysia, Hari Raya Aidil Fitri, is only a week away and I'm sure you guys have your Eid outfits sorted out. But have you got your Eid or Hari Raya cards all ready to go? If you're like me, (busy with deadlines and life, in general) I want you to know that it's not too late! After all, Eid is celebrated for an entire month in Malaysia and I think that should be extended to the rest of the world as well. It's only fair, right?

I also want you to know that a US-based greeting card company, Minted, has personally contacted me because they know how important Eid is to Muslims so they've come up with a new line of card designs especially for Eid. I've checked them out and they're really cool. Not only are they are modern, chic and elegant but they are also customisable. Have a look at the range of Minted Eid Cards and be prepared to be impressed!

You can add photo of your family or any photo you've taken for that personal touch. Be as creative as you like!

You can also write a general Eid message at the back of the card.

So you know what this means? Yes! Minted has generously agreed to give a USD$100 gift voucher to one of my readers so one of you can have the chance to choose and customise  your own Minted Eid Cards. Yay! To enter this giveaway just answer a simple question:

Leave your answer in the comment box below and please include your name / username or e-mail address. The giveaway is open to all and so yes, it is an international one. The winner will be chosen and announced on Sunday, 28th August 2011 at 12 p.m. (please note: New Zealand Time is GMT+12).

Feel free to share this with everyone on your Facebook wall, blog, Tumblr, etc. The more the merrier!

Eid 2011 is special and different to me for so many reasons. the reasons being:
1. Eid 2011 will be the first time i am celebrating Eid as a wife.
2. Eid 2011 will be the first time i am celebrating with my new family called the in-laws.
3. Eid 2011 will be the first time i am celebrating with a baby bump. even though it makes finding my raya outfits a bit difficult this year, i am happy & proud to be carrying around a baby bump with me.

Very beautiful! :D
This Eid is Special and diferent, but more diferent than ever, because it happens on my Summer holydays and so I have no problem with the school for missing or not, but it is different because although I could spend with my family I will not spend, my two uncles who lived here with us in the same city, have moved . Now they are in France. Going to be an Eid without them, without my cousins. But we have Allah and many friends around so not going to stop being special.

Eid 2011 is special and different to me because I have come to realize there are so many reasons to be thankful for the blessings Allah subhanahu wataala has given and showered me, my family and my beloved. As a muslim, Eid gives me and I believe, everyone such a big meaning for we have underwent a holy month of Ramadhan. It is special and different because as a person, I feel that I, WE, always want to find our inner peace and InsyaAllah, this coming Eid will be different of you and all of us as a person, coming out with cleansed heart. InsyaAllah.

this ramadhan is special because I have applied a new principle to live my life by. "maybe He (Allah sw) has not written something for you so that He may give you more". What ever happens to us in life, we must take the opportunity to get closer to Allah sw and increase our iman, rather than go further away.

"Do people think that they will be left alone on saying, "We believe", and that they will not be tested?" (29:2)

i love minted (they are always on the coolest design blogs) and i love your blog! how perfect. here's my shot:

This Eid is special for me because I have made conscious effort in not eating out at all for iftars. Taught me to value my ibadah rather than my hungry stomach(spending and eating far too much). Eid 2011 will truly be a celebration of defeating my nafsu :) Insya Allah. sounds dorky but to me it's such a difference :)

My Eid celebrations were always filled with special ones and phone calls , texts and wishes . But this year , my Eid is a total and a complete turn over .

I've learn throughout the year , that people may come and go as they please . Whether it is your special one, your family , your friends and even yourself - they change . And I thank Allah that He , with such mercy had given me the chance to see that even if I'm alone , I can survive . A couple month ago , I was a wreck and I was so down . But then all the difficulties forces me to bow upon Him, to make dua' and pray. So that is why this year's Eid is so special to me . :)

Because it's the one time in year when family and friends get together, due to busy life. Enjoy the day therefore it is very special for me. Because it's a unique opportunity, meeting and greeting. I love eid.
