Holiday Cards

I can’t believe it’s that time of year again! It’s time to pick out Christmas cards. Every year we try to send out photo cards to family and friends. Last year we used Shutterfly to create our cards and we were very happy with the results. I also made small desk calendars for my parents and added photos from the past year, they turned out great and my parents still have them sitting in their office and living room.

I first started using Shutterfly after our first son was born. Here’s a glimpse of the photo we used that year with one of shutterfly's new designs. Needless to say lots of friends thought this was classic and funny, but my mom did not like it very much…she was sad to see her grandson crying in the photo. He was fine seconds after the photo was taken. Click on the picture to enlarge...or don't if you don't want to see the tear...Below is the photo that we used last Christmas. I used one of their new designs and added the photo from last year. There is a huge Christmas tree that they put up in our neighborhood town center each year and we decided to get the pictures taken there. We were happy with the way this one turned out and decided that we’d probably do the same thing again this year and make a tradition out of it.
During Shutterfly’s Holiday Card promotion bloggers can get 50 free holiday cards. Check it out:

We used to love Shutterfly and the thought of 50 free cards is cool. But, we've been using Send Out Cards for a year now and are actually MAKING money by sending cards through them and helping others send cards through them (and making money themselves).

Send Out Cards is fully customizable and allows you to use as many pictures as you want, send out personalized cards in your own handwriting and with your own signature right from your computer and you can send gifts this way, too!

I'm happy to give you and your readers a couple of free Send Out Cards to send out as an early holiday gift to you all.

Just go to to send out a card or two on me.

Happy Holidays!!!
