Not Gonna Do It...



I made the very early decision last spring that this would be the first year in 11 years for me to purchase our Christmas cards. Knowing that I would be back at work full time and coming home everyday to two beautiful and active girls, I knew that there would be no time to bang out 85 homemade cards complete with a picture of my elves. Shutterfly to the rescue! I must admit that I have been loving their graphic designs these past few years and I really like the clean look of a photo card. Besides that, I am excited about not having to pay extra postage for the first time in years, my homemade cards are usually bulky creations.

So far I don't have one great pic of the girls together. And I am disappointed about this. Thank goodness Shutterfly has many different options for one, two or more photos per card. I have a cute picture of each girl we recently took at our mini vacation to the beach. Here is one of my choices HERE. Now deep down I would prefer just one great photo of the two of them, in fact I prefer the card choices that are for just one pic. One of my favorites for a single picture is this ONE . Love the whimsy of it, don't you? You have to admit, Photo cards have come a long way over the years and the designs available make it hard to choose! I am going to try one more photo session, for the perfect Christmas photo. I will have to get my bribes in order, any suggestions?
See any cards that you would like? Leave me a comment by Wednesday, November 16 at midnight Pacific and I will pick three winners ...winners will get a code for 25 free Shutterfly Cards!!!! offer code will expire on December 31, 2011

I don't know if there is something funky with my computer, but your links just lead me to the main shutterfly page. As for pics of the girls, I would love to do them if you are interested. Still have a few opening for Christmas pics on my schedule.:)

the links to the cards you like worked for me! I've just recently come to the decision to do photo cards- I'm thinking of glittering the image- for a little bit of me! :) Good luck at your photoshoot!

I have been impressed with picture greeting cards the past couple of years. The two you chose are fun. I like the Three Wise Kings and the Family Snowfall. TFS.

I love photo cards too, especially more than one photo! And found a couple that I like! But my fave is the Joy Love Story.

I didn't even send out cards last year which probably made a few people think I dropped off the face of the earth! I decided to focus on Dec Daily album instead and other aspects of the holiday season.
Would love a chance to win some Shutterfly Christmas cards. Thanks for the chance! Hope you are well and work is going well. :)
Hugs,
