Time for Christmas Cards! {Giveaway!}

Can y'all believe it is nearing the end of October?  You know what that means.  After eating twenty five pounds of Halloween candy, it's on to Thanksgiving, and then . . . only a short while until . . . Christmas! It is definitely time to be thinking about Christmas cards.

I love Christmas cards.  I love designing and sending ours, and I love receiving them from others.  Last year I got to participate in Shutterfly's holiday promotion, and so enjoyed browsing all of their options for holiday greetings.

Shutterfly is a favorite of mine.  Not just for Christmas cards, though this will be our third year in a row using them.  They offer Calendars, Birth Announcements, and a large collection of other personalized gifts. Shutterfly offers gifts for just about everyone on your list.  I recently ordered a photo book from Shutterfly for someone on my Christmas list {not tellin' who, just in case they are reading}, and it turned out BEAUTIFULLY.  It was super easy to put together, and is going to make the perfect gift. 

I couldn't help but take a sneak peek at their selection of Christmas cards this year.  I love that there are so many options.  I like these because I can load 'em up with pictures of my girls:






The greatest thing?  Shutterfly asked me if I'd like to give away a set of 25 cards to THREE of you!!! Um, YEAH! Simply leave a comment telling me what your favorite style of card is.  Do you like room for lots of photos?  Classic colors?  Who do you send cards to?  Or, just leave me a comment saying "hi" ;)  I will randomly choose a winner sometime next Friday, October 28th.


{Disclosure:  For reviewing Shutterfly's holiday line of cards, I have been generously compensated with 50 free cards for myself, as well as coupon codes for three sets of 25 cards each to be given away to three of my readers.  All thoughts and opinions are genuinely my own.}

I love the last one! I think I'll finally find some time in my busy life to do Christmas cards this year!! :)

I did that last year too and I LOVED my cards from Shutterfly! I love fun colors and a contemporary style on my Christmas cards!

I love cards! I handmake around 160 every year with cardstock/stamps/ribbon, etc.. I have been doing the 10 years we have been married and save one to scrapbook since it has a photo and newsletter. I plan on blogging them soon! : ) I literally run to the mailbox ever day in December to see if I have any. : )

Count me in for this!! My favorite is the Bright Holly Jolly one. That's what I'd get as long as it was on that nice card stock stuff. I don't like the flimsy photo ones as much. :o)

I was just thinking about Christmas cards today. I usually go with the ones with one photo.
I just went and checked them out and I like the Whimsy And Wonderful Christmas Card. CUTE!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Isn't this a great promotion. I have to get my posted as well. I got the story cards last year and loved them. I was able to use a lot of photos while still recaping the year.
Thanks for the chance!

I love Shutterfly Christmas cards, we used them last year. I'd love a free set this year!
I usually aim for traditional. I also always get something that says Merry Christmas, not happy holidays =)

Wow! I'm glad that I was catching up on my blog reading today. :) Must have been Him letting me know that it was possible to have something good happen. :) These cards would be a huge blessing right now because the hubby just returned from a deployment with his reserves unit, and is unfortunately now unemployed. We love Shutterfly, and they are my go-to for cards, photobooks, etc. Thanks for the opportunity!
