Christmas Cards 2010

I am just beginning to think about Christmas cards for this year...ummm, I have no picture taken or photocard selected. I actually have no Christmas Card list either, thanks to my computer hard drive dying multiple times this year. My dear hubs resurrected it, but all my files are gone. Anyhowser, my sister posted this great deal from Shutterfly, and even though I am woefully unprepared in the Christmas card dept., I'm hoping this is the impetus to get me started!

Shutterfly is offering 50 free cards to bloggers who advertise their cards on their blog! I have purchased and received their folded cards, and they are sooo lovely!

Shutterfly's photocards are top notch. When I first entered the world of digital photography wayyy back in 2002, what most impressed me about Shutterfly was their selection of cute card designs. 8 years later, their cards are still top of the line in cuteness and quality.

For the 50 free cards promotion, I am supposed to link to 3 different Christmas card designs, but they are sooo cute, it's hard to pick 3! I have no idea which one I will use this year, I usually pick my card design based on what picture or pictures I have of the kids, but since I have no picture yet, I'm not sure which card I'll choose. I'm sure it will not be hard to choose one, because they are all so adorable!
I really like the fact that you can add more than one photo to the cards. With 4 children, it's hard to get them all to cooperate for one photo, so it's nice to be able to use 4 different photos to be able to capture their cuteness without pulling my hair out during a Christmas photo shoot. If the photos are all from different places, etc., they can easily be unified by turning them black and white, etc.

Here are a few of my favorites:

So cute...

And a simple, but sweet ribbon...

And a delightful monogramed card...

I've also seen their desk calendars which are a GREAT gift idea. I'm also really hoping to do a 2010 photobook this year, too. Check out Shutterfly for other great inspiration for your Christmas cards and gifts!!!
