Be honest, you love this time of year right? If you don't my friend Ginger can talk you in to it. Well, I do, but you probably already knew that. Halloween is my most favorite holiday, but Christmas is a very close second, and do you know why? Because I love the cards. That's right, I said it. I love Christmas Cards (see the whole Shutterfly collection here). I do.
I spend hours pouring over the options late at night, pouring over my pictures, plugging them in to the templates, debating, studying, deciding, and I normally end up with about 3 different designs, and I order the same amount of all 3. No, I do not send everyone the same card. I am a rebel like that. I like to keep people on their toes.
This year, I am in love with 8 designs. Eight happens to be my lucky number, so I am sticking with it. Let me tell you why I love all eight of them.
I am going to start with a New Year's Card for you procrastinators out there. Sometimes you get busy and think there is no point in sending cards, Christmas is over anyway. Wrong! Cut that out right now, and send a Happy New Year card. Your friends will still have heard from you, and you will be that friend who shook it up a bit. Do it!!
I really dig the pretty colors on this one. No offense red and green. You are awesome, but sometimes I want to be different ok??
I think this one is so pretty and simple and I love the embellishments that are actually on the picture. It makes it look less like a template.
My problem with picking one, is that I love them all. I can never decide if I want just one picture or a ton. All black and white or throw in some color? Ahh, the choices!
And no, not only people with cute kids can send photo cards. Yes, I do care about your dog and I would love to see a picture of it. Don't be silly, you don't have to have perfectly dressed children to send a Christmas card. I can't wait to see Woxy Dog, Fido, or even your guinea pig. I am serious!!
And last but not least, I give you JOY! Enough said.
Now to the really good stuff. My pals over at Shutterfly want you to fall as in love with the photo card as I have, so they are allowing me the opportunity to give away a prize.
