Christmas Cards from Shutterfly

I love sending out Christmas cards.  And I love getting them.  I am always so excited the first night I get home and find a Christmas card in the mail.  Once upon a time, I just bought some Christmas cards, signed our names to them, addressed the envelopes, stuck on the stamps and mailed them.  That was pretty easy, but fairly boring.  Then a few years ago I discovered that you could take a digital picture, go online and make your Christmas cards, pick them up at the store and, voila, personalized Christmas cards.  That was pretty cool and I enjoyed getting to send pictures of our family to friends and family who don't live nearby.  I hate to admit it, but, last year I didn't even send out any Christmas cards.  I didn't have any really good pictures of the kids, or our family.  And, I wasn't pleased with the selection of online cards that the largest retailer in America provided.  All the cards just looked so blah and unoriginal.   Plus, the time just got away from me.  Hey, Christmas is a busy time!!!

But this year . . . this year I have discovered SHUTTERFLY.  If you aren't familiar with Shutterfly you really should check out their website.  Their selection of Christmas cards is incredible.  All of the cards are beautiful and there really is something for everyone.  And the price is RIGHT.  (Name that game show!)  Here are some of the incredible things Shutterfly has to offer:

· Christmas photo cards 

· upload pictures  

I haven't decided on the cards I am going to send yet because there are so may to choose from.  Some are very classy looking, some are very fun looking.  Lots of religious cards, which are my personal favorites.  So, if you haven't already decided on your Christmas cards this year check out  You'll be very glad you did!!  It's not too early, so go to TODAY!!!  Now, if I can just figure out what picture to put on the cards . . . . . . . . . .

Disclaimer:  Shutterfly is giving me 50 free Christmas cards for posting about them on my blog.  But please know that every word of my post is true.  I am ordering my Christmas cards from Shutterfly this year.  Their card selection is much better than where I was ordering them in the past (a humongous retail store that shall remain nameless but there's one in every town in America).  Just wanted to be totally honest with you all.   


  1. My daugahater just last night picked out her cards from shutterfly. Her's is a multi-purpose card. Announce their engagement, saved the date and Merry Christmas. check her out.
    Enjoy this beautiful Missouri weekend!

  2. I will go check them out, I have heard that they are a good one! (So glad your bread turned out great!) ;D

  3. We used to love Shutterfly and the thought of 50 free cards is cool. But, we've been using Send Out Cards for a year now and are actually MAKING money by sending cards through them and helping others send cards through them (and making money themselves).

    Send Out Cards is fully customizable and allows you to use as many pictures as you want, send out personalized cards in your own handwriting and with your own signature right from your computer and you can send gifts this way, too!

    I'm happy to give you and your readers a couple of free Send Out Cards to send out as an early holiday gift to you all.

    Just go to to send out a card or two on me.

    Happy Holidays!!!


  4. I am curious to find out what blog platform you are utilizing?
    I'm experiencing some minor security issues with my latest website and I'd like to
    find something more risk-free. Do you have any recommendations?
