Christmas Card GIVEAWAY!!

Last year, I was able to participate in an AWESOME holiday promotion from Shutterfly. I had used Shutterfly in the past, but ever since I learned to create my own invitations and cards, I haven't spent much time on their site. So last year, when I was given the opportunity to get some free holiday cards just for blogging about their website, I thought why not give them another try!!

I played around for hours on their site, trying out at least 20 different cards until I finally came up with the perfect one...


I can't tell you how many compliments I got on this Christmas card. I know the kids (and doggie) are pretty darn cute, but the card really came out beautifully, which is why I am SO happy to be partnering with Shutterfly again this holiday season!

Now...last year was easy to select a card. I was only working with a few pictures and when I found the card above, I was sold. But this year, I am working with several adorable pictures and I just can't decide on one style!!!!

Plus, I can never decide if our cards should have everyone in the family, or just the kiddies (and/or doggies). Last year we went with everyone because I know my Aunt Lori specifically requested seeing ALL of us on the card because she keeps them on her fridge. So, I've decided to print some cards that have the whole family, and these are the two styles I am loving.



Because I am pretty sure that my Aunt Lori (and our grandparents) are the only ones that really care to see Eric and I on the card, I decided to print some of just the kids because I have the most PERFECT black and white of them to put on this card.


I seriously can't wait to show it off!!!!! It turned out so beautiful, and I am sure it will be even more beautiful in print :-)

Shutterfly has hundreds of different holiday cards to choose from and I just know that everyone can find something they love. And they don't just stop at Christmas cards and holiday cards...they also have other fantastic greeting cards and thank you cards, which you may be able to try for yourself for FREE if you are one of three lucky readers!!

That's right friends...Shutterfly is letting me give away 3 different promo codes for 25 FREE HOLIDAY CARDS!!! And it is super easy to enter. All you have to do is visit Shutterfly and let me know what type of Christmas or Holiday card you are loving this year. Are you a polka dot or plaid girl like me? Or are you more simple and classic? Also, be sure to let me know if you prefer "Family Shots" or "Kids/Doggie Shots" on your Christmas cards. It's just a fun little survey I am taking for myself :-)

Alright friends...comment away!! Please only one comment per person, as I will be using random.org to select the three winners on Monday, October 24th (which means all entries need to be in by then).

Good luck everyone and Happy Christmas Card shopping!!

  2. I want to win!

    Last year I did the Shutterfly New Year's card that had a picture for every month. I'm not sure if I will do the every month pics again, but I love all of the contemporary 5x7 new year's cards.

    I am a flat, 5x7 and colorful card kind of girl:)

  4. Wow- there are way too many cute ones! I am loving: Seasonal Chic, Joy and Magic, Faith Hope Family, and Elegant Lace Snowflake! I usually wait until we get pictures done so I know which ones will work with the cute pics!

  5. I love your choices - they are adorable! I like the cutesy ones as well - polka dots, snowflakes, etc. I am loving the Handwritten Greeting, Snowflake Border and the Peppermint Dots. There are so many great ones to choose from! I typically put just the kids on our Christmas card - I always seem to have so many great pics of them and no good ones with me in them! Ha!

  6. I really like the whimsy cards. Bright colors always make Christmas cards fun. I would probably choose "Wishing You Merry" We usually just put the kids in the picture. It's much easier finding them outfits. :)

  8. I love seeing everyone! I actually like the polka dot one you posted, super cute. I don't do a card bc I think a pic of us only is weird. My Grandma would live it though! Ha. I am going to have an ugly sweater party (want to fly over?) and want to order invites!!! Pick MEEEEE!

  13. It is so hard to choose a favorite! I like the cards that allow you to have several pictures. We always do pictures of the kids and us since we don't live by anyone. My favorites are Twinkle Twinkle Snowflakes, Merry Montage, Picture Joy, Initial Merry...oh I like them all!

  17. This year I will propably just use the boys picture. It is too complicated to try to get four faces looking ok, rather than two, plus they are cuter!
