O Christmas Card, O Christmas Card...

Now that I'm on my own, it's time to "grow up" and start sending out my own Christmas cards.  Especially since it's my first year in my new house, I want to send a picture card.  I don't have the perfect picture yet - I'm hoping for one with me and Jager.  I can't decide if it should be in front of the house or in front of the Christmas tree - thoughts?  Both have value, but I'm not sure which is what I really want.  I just need a photographer (probably Mom) to take some pictures in both places.  AND I need Jager to cooperate!

Shutterfly has some really awesome photo card options.  While there are a lot with multiple picture slots, I'm looking for a single photo hole.  I just don't have enough pictures from this past year that I want to share with my card list!

With that said, I really like the Lovingly Wrapped American Lung Association Holiday 5x7 folded card.  




Not only is it a super cute card, but 10% of the purchase price goes to the American Lung Association.  You get a cute card to share with your family and friends while supporting a good cause.


I am a sucker for almost anything red.  So I really like the Cranberry Swirl Christmas 5x7 folded card.
It's simple and direct, but very elegant.  I could see myself sending this if I could find the perfect picture.  It would really set off my house!



I think I found my card when I found Holiday Love Sketch Christmas 5x7 folded card.
Cute, hip, and totally my kind of thing.  I would love to send this to my friends and family.  Now I have to find the perfect picture!

Shutterfly is sponsoring blogs this Christmas with 50 free cards.  I can't wait to hear what my friends and family have to say about them.  What do you think your card list would say to see these cards showing up in their mailboxes?  You can get more information about their offer here.
