The Christmas Card Debate

After hours of trying to decide on a design, picture and website to use to make our Christmas I had decided against it. I was spending way too much time on it and didn't know if it was necessary. I love receiving cards from friends every year and seeing their adorable families, but Brett didn't really see the point of sending just us and I had decided the same.

That is, until I was catching up on my daily blogs today and learned that Shutterfly will give away 50 Christmas cards to bloggers if they blog about it. So, here I am blogging about it!
Go to THIS link if you want to do the same.
May as well do it since it is free, right?
I think this is the photo we will use:
This being our first year of marriage, of course I have to use a wedding photo! Maybe Sam will make the card next year. Poor thing.

Here are some other links to Shutterfly. I have used it to make note cards and shower invites in the past. It is an easy website to use, the quality is great and it ships quickly.

  2. Love it!! Such a good picture!! I want to do holiday cards too, but our wedding pictures don't have our puppy in it, so I am hoping to get some pictures taken for holiday cards (I justify this with the fact that I didn't get engagement pictures taken).

  12. I love the picture you picked...can't help but think of poor Sam. I'm sure he was left outside in the rain while that pic was being taken anyway. I would do the same except that Ryan has long ago banned sending out cards with our pic and/or our dogs' pic. So be looking out for my generic christmas card once again this year.
