It's beginning to look a lot like... Christmas??

It seems that Christmas is rapidly approaching! Our grocery store already has the tinseled decorations hanging on the light posts, the mall is playing Christmas Carols, and in replacement of political propaganda commercials... the toy companies are hitting us hard with the newest greatest toys of the year. This year is exciting for our family because we have Keating. Christmas with a baby is going to be very special.

One of my favorite things about Christmas, is receiving Christmas cards from all of our friends and family. While viewing the cards we get, I always take a mental note of the ones I love. Last year I noticed a few of those were from Shutterfly, they were nice heavy weight cards and even came in a matte finish. I perused their site and found a few I LOVE! Here are some of the contenders...
My main card qualification is that it has to say "Merry Christmas." Even better if it has a religious reference. There is a great selection of religious cards and even gift tags as well. Which card is your favorite? I need to get our family pictures taken fast so that I can take advantage of their 20% off sale!


  1. Last year, we used the words "Merry Christmas" AND "pray." It was wonderful! ;o)

  2. I LOVE Shutterfly & you will not be dissapointed!! I have a hard time picking ours every year too but for the ones you have here my fave is #3.

  3. i haven't ever used shutterfly, i usually buy a card template so i can re-sell it to clients later, if they choose to have me photograph them for christmas cards. knock out 2 birds with one stone... and then i can re-use the template in years to come. when i say it like that, it sounds really un-christmas-y. hmm. we just moved & i haven't re-opened my studio yet, so this year christmas cards might be a little more "us" :)


I love hearing from you! Thanks for your comments!
