Thanks to Gail & Jo for keeping this wonderful card chain going! What a generous company TE is to give us a chance to win the gc--love so many of their products! Just to clarify--using only one of the options puts us in the drawing?

Hi Greta, yes as long as you use at least one of the options and fulfill the other requirements, ie your card arrives at your recipient by the end of the month and you have sent your photo etc, you will be in the draw. Good luck. Hugz
