Preparing for the Holidays

Remembering this goody...

But this year I need to get a move on!  I was fortunate enough to have a great friend volunteer to some over to my house with her fantabulous Canon SLR camera and take pitcures of the kiddos, who were somewhat cooperative in the back yard.  We got some great shots! Now it is time to make the holiday card.

I don't understand why everyone doesn't do it this way.  It is so easy.  So cute.  So much fun.  I love the options.  I love  to play around with the settings! To me this is the modern 21st century Hallmark shopping.  Don't get me wrong, I love going to the card store and browsing like I used to.  One of my first jobs was in a Hallmark store.  That wil  always hold a special spot for me in my heart.  But this is so much fun to do.  And after you receive them, it is so neat to have a personalized card to share with your family!  so now I just need to narrow down my choices....

I have to say on Shutterfly I am very impressed with the variety of choices and low prices!  I think these cards look much more expensive than what they actually are!

 Why I love this one- it's orange!!

 For the traditional- I like the red tone!
 Top ten list- great idea!
 Seriously- I love the message on this one.  It could be a winner.  I only wish it had more than one layout.
 Cute bio layout.  I saw one like this elsewhere. 
 Nice. Traditional but with dots!  Who doesn't love dots!
 If I lived in a big city....
Great colors, and I like the dots...again with the dots.
