When I was younger and still lived at home, I loved getting holiday cards from relatives and family friends. I thought it was just wonderful getting all different letters and photos from people wishing us a happy holiday season. My Mom would tape them in the doorways for everyone to see, and that was probably my favorite decoration of all. After getting the first few cards in the mail, she would pick up a box of cards that she planned on sending out herself. But being as busy as she was, the box usually sat...and sat. And I would get frustrated... wishing I had her lovely handwriting so that I could send them out myself. But I didn't.
However. One of the many perks to getting married is that I am now able to send out *our own* holiday cards- with *our* name and picture. And that, I must admit, excites me a bit more than it probably should.
So when I heard from fellow blogger Carmen about Shutterfly's latest promotion-I post a blog about their holiday collection and in turn I get 50 cards to call my own-...I got even more excited.
Their designs range from retro to classic, colorful to simple, and everything in between. It's quite easy- you type in your names, drop in your family photo- and the rest is pretty much done for you. With the folded style card, you have the option of typing up a message for your recipients in their customizing stage.
Here are our favorites...and I really don't know how we'll decide.
