spreading Christmas cheer with photo greeting cards

Sending Christmas cards hasn’t really been a tradition Craig and I have kept up with since getting married, but between Craig’s deployment and welcoming our precious Emily, we have a lot to share this year!  I’ve been working on a family newsletter to summarize our year, but a pretty Christmas card will be the perfect courier.

As is always the case these days, Emily is the star of the show so I’ve been working on capturing that perfect holiday pose to feature on our Christmas card.  Do you have any idea how hard it is to pose a wriggly, floppy baby in a cute position and have them stay that way until you can get a smile too?

After all of that work trying to get the perfect photo (I have yet to capture the perfect one!), you want to make sure the card measures up in cuteness and quality.

Shutterfly has some great options for this year’s card, and if the photobook and collage poster I’ve ordered in the past are any indication, they will be really good quality too.

Want to know what the problem with the Shutterfly website is?  There are so many cute designs, its hard to pick just one!  I love the tree design on this one and it’s a perfectly simple match to that expressive little face.

Craig and I are also thinking about getting some family photos taken when he gets back so maybe a two photo design like this one would be better:

If you are planning on sending out Christmas cards this year (and even if you weren’t!) check out the Shutterfly website for some Christmas inspiration.  And if Christmas cards aren’t your thing, maybe you can find a great Christmas gift with one of these photo gifts.

Want some more Christmas cheer?  Shutterfly is offering 50 free photo greeting cards to bloggers just for passing on the good news!  Visit this site for more info…
