I'm taking a break from writing about food today to write about Christmas cards.  Christmas is less than two months away and I am already thinking about what to do for our cards.  Last year I had to wait until the last minute to take a picture for our photo card, because my husband gave my daughter the worst bang trim in history in November!  I had to wait for her bangs to grow out some so I could even them out.  Sounds funny now; but believe me, it was NOT funny then!  So I would like to get an earlier start on my cards this year so I'm not scrambling on December 14th like last year.

Have you checked out the holiday card collection at Shutterfly?  I have never used Shutterfly for holiday cards before, but I've been looking at their collection and they have some beautiful cards.  They actually have a much better selection than the place where I have ordered mine in the past.  They have over 900 designs, with categories like Classic, Contemporary, and Whimsy.  You can also filter the designs by how many photos you want on the front and if you want a religious theme or not.  My favorite designs are the simpler ones like the "Starlight Snowflakes" card above.  I think that card would be really cute with a picture of both of my girls together.

Shutterfly is offering bloggers 25 free cards for posting about their holiday cards.  What a great deal!  If you are interested in participating, go here to register.  You have to register by November 11 to be eligible.

While Shutterfly has an amazing collection of holiday cards, they have lots of other photo products as well.  You can create your own 2012 calendar, you can order personalized gift tags, you can make adorable photo books to give as gifts for family, and if you're looking for more gift ideas, they have a plethora of other photo gifts, like mugs, blankets, playing cards, etc.

If you're not quite ready to think about Christmas cards yet, Shutterfly is having a Halloween sale right now on  many of their photo products. Items are up to 50% off with free shipping.   It ends November 3, so check it out now!

Shutterfly offered me 25 free cards to share this promotion with you.  All opinions expressed are completely my own.  I really do think these cards are awesome!

  2. Thanks, Ellen, but that's not my daughter. It's the picture from the website. I did post a pic of my girls in a post earlier this month if you want to see what they look like! http://www.edesiasnotebook.com/2011/10/versatile-blogger-award.html I think they're even cuter, but I am pretty biased!
