Holiday Cards & Shutterfly

I am so excited about getting our holiday cards together this year. Last year we did a family card with the extended family; it’s so weird to think of my in-laws as extended family now that we have our own little family! This year we have Cati and are more settled into our home so I really feel like this year is the very first Christmas for us. Last year I was pregnant and dreamed about embracing my baby and giving her all the love everyone deserves during this time of year. This year I have my baby and I can’t wait to start showing her the true meaning of love and family. This is the year where I finally feel our little family is complete. This is the year we start (and continue) all the traditions we want Cati to have growing up. How exciting is that?
So imagine my excitement when I heard about Shutterfly's 50 Free Holiday Cards Promotion from Growing On Gettysburg. Fifty free cards for bloggers? I am most definitely in, especially after the little budget talk I got from Alex this past weekend (bah! humbug!). Plus, I would have bought from Shutterfly either way since all our past holiday cards have been from there.

Here are some of my favorites:

*I love the elegance of this one. It would be perfect if we were doing just one picture.

*I love the tree and the fonts. I don't know if the orientation would work with the Santa picture of Cati though.

*Who doesn't live Frosty?!

*Love the colors.

*This card is so much fun!

*This card is my favorite by far.

*I like the orientation of the pictures on this card.

*Every year I want to throw a party and this invite is so stinking cute. 

*Penguins! Have I told you how much I love penguins? Well, I do~

Oh my goodness that first picture of Cati in the Santa hat is so adorable! I am so glad that you found that promo from my post. I just got my code to order mine. I am so happy I didn't have to pay for cards this year! :-)
