It’s that time of year again…

time to start thinking about holiday cards! I was ecstatic to find my Christmas card list from last year (maybe I *am* getting a tiny bit more organized…), so now I just have the difficult decision of which card to send.

Fortunately, I already know the best place to get the cards. We have loved using Shutterfly for cards and invitations in the past, and had every plan to use them again this year. Then I discovered that they offer 50 free cards to bloggers. You can’t beat getting something you were already going to buy for free!

I have spent the last few days looking through the 2093 pictures I have taken this year and realizing just how few family pictures I have. Resolution for 2011: take more family pictures.  My goal for this Thanksgiving weekend is to get a great family picture, and then to get cards ordered soon.

One thing I love about Shutterfly’s card selection is that they have such a large variety of cards, and they are sortable by so many options. I can easily narrow down my card options according to how many pictures I want to use, or what colors are in my pictures.  Shutterfly also has several options for what sort of card to send — including 4×8 photo, 5×7 photo, or folded 5×7 cards.

I love brown…

And the message of this one:

  Celebrate Family Christmas

I also love that Shutterfly offers cards whose purchase benefits nonprofits such as the American Lung Association.

Whichever card you end up choosing (and there are SO many more options on the Shutterfly site), you will end up with a promptly delivered and high-quality card.  I can’t wait to see which card we end up choosing, and I’d love to know your favorites too!  Browse around at their site — I hope you have as much fun as I have!  Hurry — their Cyber Week sale ends December 1st!

Disclosure:  I have recieved reimbursement for this blog post in the form of 50 free cards from Shutterfly.  All opinions in this post are mine only.  Are you interested in blogging and receiving some free holiday cards?  Sign up here!
