Holiday Greeting Cards

It's that time of year again when we're all directing our thoughts towards holiday greetings. Nothing puts me more in the mood for Christmas than when I receive holiday cards from my family and friends. I'm particularly fond of photo cards and am more apt to save them and display or frame them than I am traditional, store bought greeting cards. I'm a huge fan of Shutterfly and have ordered Christmas cards from them in the past.

I've also ordered photo books from them. (You'll notice a similarity.)

This year I'm helping my son and daughter-in-law spread their own family holiday cheer by placing this photo of their family on a Shutterfly holiday card. (Don't you just want to eat Gavin up?)

Perhaps this one?

Or maybe this one? What do you think?

I may even order a calendar.

Or a mug.

Stop me short if I order an apron.... but it can be done! (and you know what? It really would be appropriate since I do cook!)

Share your family warmth this year with a photo card from Shutterfly and know that you'll earn a place on your family/friend's refrigerator, underneath their favorite magnet (yeah, they have those too.)

If you are a blogger and are interested in participating in this offer, click here.

Disclosure: In exchange for writing this post, I will receive a promotional code for a package of 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly. All opinions are my own.

Great picture of you and Dave!!! And little cutie pie Gavin could be covered in mud and still look adorable.

I ran out of time last year to get Christmas cards done. But I'm sticking to a schedule of getting our picture taken care of the week after Thanksgiving. (It's a little tough because I need to find someone with some patience to get a picture of us and the dog!) I love all the options Shutterfly has, but I have a feeling we'll stick with the traditional holiday card.

My brother makes a Shutterfly calendar every Christmas with his daughters in different poses for the month (that sounded bad - it's not Playboyish ;) ) It's a great gift for family.

LOVE your pics!!

We got one very similar to the first you posted . . . but I'm so sad because they put out that offer after I'd already ordered and received my cards . . . that's what I get for getting things done early for once! =)

I am no stranger to Shutterfly myself. I have done many of photo books, and ordered have ordered lots of prints over the years. I am at the point in my life that it requires so much energy to get my family together for a holiday photo. I have two boys who could care less about family photos ( 13 yrs, and 21 yrs) (sigh).

btw, I could eat Gavin up! What a cutie.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
