One of My Favorite Parts of Christmas!

One of my favorite parts of Christmas has got to be the Christmas cards. I get so excited opening the mailbox every day in December and getting to open mail from all our friends and family. I love getting to see all the amazing pictures everyone came up with and all the really cool cards everyone came up with. I usually like the challenge of making my own cards, but this year we put off our holiday pictures until the day before we headed out of town to hopefuly capture a picture of the baby bump. You'll notice in the pictures I decided to use they are head shots so it was a pointless idea, but it sounded good at the time. Needless to say my time to create my own card ran out, and I also realized that Christmas cards are almost just as affordable this way!!!

Check out some of these great ideas from Shutterfly.com

I think of of my favorite parts of creating the cards is looking at all the different ideas. I usually find that I tend to pick my "favorites" based on the pictures, and then have to go back and find a card that fits the pictures of our family.
Shutterfly.com is running a great promotion for blog users. For putting up this blog post I will get a code for 50 free Christmas cards!!! (or my mom will because I bought mine already... go figure!) I believe you have until December 10th to apply and until the 15th to submit your blog post. Blog users take advantage of it... it's an amazing deal!!!
