WICHITA — Self-described “Hallmark junkie” Julie Conner is now an official Hallmark card creator.
As Have You Heard? reported earlier this summer, Conner is the Wichita resident who won an online Hallmark competition for a card she created.
Now, Hallmark has chosen that card to produce and sell in Walmart stores nationally.
Conner also won an additional $250, which is what she won for the online portion of the competition.
She calls it “a drop in the bucket to what they’re going to make off of it . . . but it’s still cool.”
“For people like me who just want to have the notoriety of having written a Hallmark card . . . excitement is part of the reward.”
