Christmas Card Time!

It's hard to believe it is almost time to start on the Christmas cards, especially since it has been so unseasonably warm here in Michigan the past few days.  But knowing this is Michigan, we could have snow tomorrow and will almost certainly enjoy a white Christmas.  Now, why am I discussing Christmas cards on my blog when it isn't even Thanksgiving?  Because it is never to early to start and I'm going to be trying something different this year. 

Normally, The hubs and I hit the day-after-Christmas sales to pick up our holiday cards for the following year.  We send out a lot of cards, so I'd much rather find some cards at 75% off than pay retail any day!  The problem with this method is "you get what you get".  Digging through the bottom of the barrels (literally) to find some decent cards.  This year, however, I've decided to go with Shutterfly for my Christmas cards.

I have been a huge fan of Shutterfly for many, many years.  Every vacation for the past several years have been immortalized in Shutterfly Photo Books and I even helped a good friend create her wedding album using Shutterfly.  Seriously, you can't go wrong with their products.

So, last weekend, we took a family photo and now I have the nearly impossible decision of which card to choose.  They have so many styles and colors to choose from.  Here's where you can help me out!  Take a look at the picture we snapped last weekend and a few of my favorite card styles.  Let me know which one you like the best. 

Christmas Letter
What a cool idea - a combo Christmas letter and photo card! Granted, I'd need to come up with a couple more pictures for this one.

Love 2010
We had a fabulous year - so maybe a "top 10" would make a great card!

Elegant Cranberry Damask
I love the black & white with the beautiful damask design of this one.

So there you go.  Easy-Peasy, right?  I can't wait to get started on my cards this year.  Shutterfly even has matching address labels for some of their cards.  How cool is that?
