Holiday Cards & Shutterfly GIVEAWAY!

Hello November 7, 2011. When did November get here? Where did the year go? I know there are still two months left of the year, but I feel like they are going to fly right by us, which is why I am starting to think about our holiday cards now. Or rather, I am stressing out about our holiday cards because I need to organize a photo session with a husband/daddy who won’t have another day off until the middle of December. This year, we have a toddler who may or may not smile and who definitely will not let us put the Santa hat on her. This year we also have a pregnant mommy who is finding it increasingly difficult to feel pretty. If we manage to get a good picture of us I will be impressed (and relieved)!

Last year was easy because it featured pictures of Cati. This is still, hands-down, my favorite holiday card and my favorite photo session from Cati’s first year of life. I love the smiles and rolls and how cooperative she was. Looking back, I think it was great that I had the pictures I needed to fit into the card I liked the best from Shutterfly's selection.

To help us out this year again is Shutterfly with their great holiday card selection. Even better though is the fact that Shutterfly wants to be a part of your holiday celebrations too! Shutterfly is offering 25 cards to three lucky readers of my blog! 

1. Leave a comment with your email address or a way to contact you on this post by Friday, November 11, 2011. 
2. The winners will be chosen at random and announced on Saturday, November 12, 2011

If you need help with card selection, here are a few of my favorites. Note: My favorites only include one picture per card because I am anticipating only having one good family picture. 

 Vintage Joyeux Noel card. Tie for second choice.
 Classic Plaid Wishes card. Tie for second choice.
 Retro Merry Wishes card. This one is my top choice!

For more on Shutterfly's holiday selection, you can check out their Christmas cards, greeting cards, holiday gifts, holiday cards, photo books, and Christmas photo cards.

Don't forget to enter the giveaway and good luck!
