Christmas Cards Already?

I'll admit, last year I waited so late to do Christmas cards, I had to settle with slapping a new family photo and a status update on Facebook. But with the help of Shutterfly, I have plans to turn over a new leaf. I'm sending real Christmas cards this year, not some generic social networked greeting.

Bloggers can get 50 free holiday cards in a special Shutterfly promotion that's running now. If you're interested, check out the details here.

I took a peek at some of their cards--there are over 748 different styles! Before I make a decision, I'm sure I'll spend hours going through each one. But these are some of the early contenders:



























This one is called Top Ten Moments. I like that it's a cross between a Christmas letter and a greeting card.





















This one's called With Love. I like the color scheme and there's something about that Louie Armstrong song that always makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.



























The sentiment on Christ Wishes is perfect, exactly what I want to say to my friends and family.

Are Christmas cards not your thing? Shutterfly also makes holiday gift tags, birthday invitations, and personalized calendars.

  1. Thanks, Joy! You're awesome. I always get my cards there anyway & I'm already late ordering... UGH! I usually send them out the Monday after Thanksgiving... don't think that's happening this year!
    Facebook, huh? I don't think I'll get away with that...

  3. Hope this deal helps you ladies. I found it on one of the mommy blogs I follow. I couldn't resist taking them up on the offer. But my followers are probably thinking, "I thought this was a book blog?!" I'll return to regularly scheduled programming now. :)

  4. I really like that last card! It's so hard anymore to find good religious Christmas cards in the stores--it's downright scary!

  5. I was so late ordering my Christmas cards last year that I had them imprinted with "Happy Groundhog Day, Everyone!" No lie. (and, if memory serves, they arrived AFTER Groundhog Day.)
