Ready or Not, It's Coming

Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year. Hands down.

I love the music, the decorations, the food, the parties, the dressy clothes, the lights... I could go on and on.

I really love the meaning behind it, too. I love that it's the time of year that we celebrate our Savior coming to this world.

I don't love that stores (ahem. Hobby Lobby, I'm talking to you.) start putting out Christmas stuff in July, but I get why they do.

Maybe I just get annoyed because I'm nowhere near ready for Christmas this time of year.

But I am giving myself a little pat on the back right now.

I just ordered the kids' outfits for our Christmas cards today. (!!!) So I can cross at least one tiny little thing off my Christmas to-do list.

I love Christmas Cards. I've sent them out every year since Hubs and I got married. Which makes 15 years of Christmas cards, for those of you who are counting! This year will be our 16th card.

My favorite kind of card is always a photo card. Not only is it my favorite kind to give; it's my favorite kind to receive. I always display the Christmas cards we receive each season, and I keep the photo cards from years past. I love looking at the old cards. I love seeing how families change as time passes.

Shutterfly is making my Christmas cards waaaaaay less stressful this year. I've already found the one I'll be making for our family. All I have to do is upload my pictures to their website, personalize it, and I'm done. I don't have to spend hours in photoshop trying to add the perfect touch, just the right color, or changing the font 47 times. They've already done it for me.

Check them out! They have HUNDREDS of Christmas cards to choose from.

Aren't these beautiful?

Right now, they have special offers that can help save you time and money on photo cards, calendars, gifts and so much more.

Even better? They're giving away $50 off to one of my readers!!!

One of you will receive a promo code for $50 off your total order! This does not include shipping, and cannot be combined with any other offers.

Just leave me a comment, telling me which is your favorite photo card, and you'll be entered to win. Giveaway ends October 29, 2012.

Hmmm... I've never sent Christmas cards before - Mainly because it is so expensive (the word lazy DOES NOT come to mind hehe) - but, how easy is that?!

The cards are all cute, but my favorite is the "Elegant Scroll Frame" card.

I would pick the "oh joy" card...and you should pick me so you can look back at it over the years ;)

I like the flat collage cards. I typically put multiple pics in mine.
I love getting photo cards too!

My favorite is the Elegant Scroll Frame card. I have never sent Christmas cards -- but how easy would it be if they are basically done for you?! I've decided we are sending some for sure this year!! Photo cards are so fun to see on the refrigerator or the mantle!

I want to be entered!! I like the Holly Jolly card with multiple pics but I also like the one with the one big Black and white picture on it.
