Last year, with the baby and all the stress of going back to work after maternity leave, Christmas cards just didn’t happen for our family (instead we did the second best alternative, Valentine’s Day cards!). We have friends andrelatives so far and so wide, though, that I really do like to share a picture of the kids and a little reminder that even though we’re far away, we do indeed think of all our out-of-state and overseas dear ones at Christmastime.
Shutterfly asked me to review some of their new Christmas cards and I picked a few that I’d like to use this year:
I like the Peace, Love, Joy theme of this one http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/cards-stationery/we-heart-you-holiday-card-5×7-flat?sortType=1&storeNode=93476Plus, it gives me the opportunity to upload a five good pics from throughout the year.
But, and this is a big BUT (lol) and a big IF…If I can get the kids to sit still together and both smile, then we’re going to go with a single photo card. I like this one, with a black and white photo: http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/cards-stationery/glitter-glamour-joy-christmas-card-5×7-flat?sortType=1&storeNode=93476but Pupa’s eyes are the lovliest blue and Fratellone’s the handsomest hazel, so I may go for a color singlephoto of the kids with this card: http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/cards-stationery/flourishing-frame-christmas-card?sortType=1&storeNode=93476I especially like that Shutterfly has the 5×5 format.
