The Christmas Card Reveal

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you have an amazing holiday, friends!

Somehow I won 100 photo Christmas cards this year...no joke! I entered two blogger giveaways figuring I wouldn't win and somehow won both! I even won a giveaway I didn't enter - long story short I commented saying something to the effect of "Good luck to those who enter. I'm not entering because I've already won another similar giveaway." Somehow I was still chosen to win 50 cards. Instead of hoarding them, I emailed the blogger back. Hopefully another winner is chosen and it brightens their day. I also gave away 25 to a friend who can use them. Good holiday karma? Hope so!

A little background on my cards...I'm single and childless so I went the way cheesy route and took a picture with my dog. Yup, my dog. It's less pathetic than me by myself though, right? Please say yes...

I'm not too fond of my round head in the picture I selected, but the pup looks good and this was the best pic out of the batch of about 50 taken last weekend.

So here's the design I went with via Shutterfly!

I know, not very Christmas-y. But I had a crazy theory. If they aren't holiday specific, maybe people will keep them up all year. What kind of insane, egocentric thinking is that?! Haha! But really, nobody keeps a Christmas card on their fridge all year. I know I don't. But if it was just a cute picture, I totally would.

I'm kind of regretting it now because there were SO many really cute card designs to choose from. Like you could spend hours picking out a design because they are all so adorable. I'm still pleased with these though.

I highly recommend Shutterfly holiday cards. Less than 24 hours after creating mine I received an email saying they'd already shipped. Pretty amazing.

I also love Shutterfly for business and note cards. I always order from them and am happy with the results. Plus, they have deals all the time so you're bound to get your projects made at a reasonable price! For example, holiday cards are up to 40% off right now and you get free shipping if you spend $30.
