Shutterfly holiday cards are here!! (GIVEAWAY)

I am one of those people who ALWAYS send holiday cards in the mail, no matter if I am crazy busy or just plain lazy. I think they are fun to get and fun to share. So when Shutterfly contacted me regarding their campaign to get the word out about their holiday cards, I jumped at the chance.

The past few year I have bought my cards from Shutterfly and have been exstatic over the quality and care they took to make my cards nice. Easy-peasey process too-the hardest part was choosing the card I wanted to use! I used a self portrait at the “Bean” in Chicago and my friends and family loved it. It was in Black and White and the card had a red ribbon around it. I wish I had an extra left over from last year to scan… darn!!
This year I am in love with THIS adorable card…

I love the black and white background with the colorful trees, and the prominent picture on the front. PERFECTION! I think this will be my holiday card this year. When I was tooling through their website, I also noticed they have calendars and other photo gifts for sale too. I always go there to buy cards, but after I looked around a bit, I may buy a calendar for my classroom with my kids’ pictures on it. Cute!


Shutterfly was generous enough to give me 3 promo codes each for 25 cards to give away this season. I will chose 3 random commentors (with who answer this question:
