Christmas Cards Can Be FUN!

I mean, shouldn't they be? Really. Yet, as this time of year comes around I find myself becoming overwhelmed by all that the holiday season entails... gifts, baking, wrapping, decorating, and sending out Christmas cards. Each year I tackle all of the tasks on my list, with the exception of one... I can never seem to get those darn cards in the mail and to their intended recipient! Well, this year is a different story...

You've all heard of Shutterfly, right? If you haven't, or if you've heard of them but never been to the website, go! Now! This year we're going to do our Christmas cards on Shutterfly, and I'll be picking a design, uploading pics of The Hubster, the pups, and I, and they're going in.the.mail. Promise! Here are some of the designs that have caught my eye that I think would work well for our little family:

I thought this one was a super cute, modern option that would easily accommodate pictures of us and the dogs...

I love the classic feel of this one. And the monogram? Swoon!

Anyone who knows me knows that I fell in love with this turquoise cutie the minute I saw it. Adorbs!

This one makes my heart pitter patter... I love the clean lines & the classic black look with that gorgeous turquoise!

Modern and ADORABLE, right?! Love this.

This little sweetie makes me wanna curl up with some hot cocoa, wonder if the recipients would feel the same?

Pink and red?! Yes please! So cute.

So, it looks like I have my work cut out for me. I need to pick a design and fast!

With the holidays fast approaching, you should also think of Shutterfly for some gift ideas! Apart from their endless selection of holiday cards, they offer some terrific prices on photo books, wall calendars, and canvas wall art that are not only gorgeous, but affordable too. Are you sold on them yet? Because I am!

Added bonus? But of course there is! Fellow bloggers can click here to find out how to get 50 of your own holiday cards for FREE!

Yup, free.

What are you waiting for?! Go! I'm off to pick out my final choice for my cards. Come Christmas time it is my goal to have our pictures on the fridge of every family member, and these cards aren't going to create themselves. Wish me luck!


  1. I love holiday cards. I just started working on my Christmas letter this week. We already have this year's picture picked out... Here's some of our past ones:

  2. Wow, you have a Christmas letter?! I'm hoping to get it together enough to just get the cards out this year. But I love your past cards, so fun! We need to take more pics together, the best ones we have are from our wedding over 2 years ago! :)

  3. very cute! Have you ever thought about making your own with adobe photo-shop? I like to do that so it can be customized a bit more. :)
