Here comes Santa Claus, Here Comes Santa Claus...

So, in lieu of finally updating my blog and posting a little something, I found a way to save a little for the holidays Shutterfly has decided to award bloggers with 50 free Christmas Cards all for a little shameless promoting.

Last year I designed and ordered our Christmas Card through Shutterfly and they were a hit. It was super easy to do, and the most difficult thing I had to deal with was deciding which format I wanted to go with. Here was our final project........

I loved the opportunity to use two photos which included one from our wedding and a current Christmas picture with Santa. Naturally we didn't order enough last year so I'll definitely be ordering more this year.

Currently I am deciding on which photos to use, as well as starting to get ideas of which layouts to use. Here's one I'm a big fan of, but don't know if it would work for us when we only have pictures of us!

Also, I know I have cousins with little ones who may be looking for Christmas gift ideas for Grandmas and Grandpas.... many of them love and still use wall calendars. Just a thought :)

Lastly, for those of you who prefer the more traditional Christmas Cards without photos, Shutterfly has a great selection here. Just as wonderful and creative without including a photo.

Good luck with your Holiday Card Shopping! If you're anything like Steve and I your cards will be arriving in mailboxes around the same time Santa is coming down the Chimney and not a moment sooner! Happy Holidays all!
