Its Christmas Card Time

One of my favorite things about Christmas is getting cards in the mail.  I love seeing my friends and their families.  The new babies and growing families. The smiles!  I just love it all.  My guess is most people are ahead of the game and have their cards picked out or sent even.  Me.  I'm a procrastinator.  And I usually wait till the last minuet to do them.  This year is no different.

Do you take photos or have them done specifically for your cards?  The last few years I have just taken a few shots of the boys in front of the Christmas tree, but I feel like changing it up this year. And thanks to Shutterfly it is going to be super easy.  If I can pick just one card. There are so many I cant decide.  There are folded and flat cards.  There are many sizes to choose from including the new 6x8!  If you are asking me, I say the bigger the better!  How cute is this one?!


Watch the video about having a Family Photo Day.  It is what has inspired me to go out this weekend with my family and just have a little fun.  Capturing Cardworthy photos along the way.  And if you watch the video, you will see that it isn't just about the matching outfits and the perfect smile.  Its about having a little fun, leaving all the stress behind and getting the shots of your family just being your family.  And who knows, maybe I can even get a few shots with David and I in them too.  If you have a photo avoiding husband like I do, I bet this is just what he needs to let loose and enjoy having his picture taken.


There is also the Shutterfly Cardworthy Photo Sweepstakes.  The Grand Prize is a dream trip for a family of 4.  And I mean who doesn't want that!  And it could be a photo that you took, or had taken.  They are even accepting photos taken with your phone.  If it is cardworthy to you, send it in and see if you win!

And it gets better.  I get to give one of you a $50 promotional card to Shutterfly.  And its not just for cards.  They make everything from ornaments to canvases.  I personally have my eyes on a photo book!

  15. If I won I would order a photo book for my brother, Larry, who is serving over seas in Afghanistan. It has been 9 months since he has seen any of our family so I thought a photo book would make a great Christmas gift for him.
