Yes, it is that time of the year for Holiday Cards. I always have mine written out over the Thanksgiving weekend and have them ready to mail...well, I used to, however, I am a bit behind this year and so what a deal I got from SHUTTERFLY to help me out! With a new grandchild, I have a really good reason to want to send out photocards this year!
I have been a member of SHUTTERFLY for a while now and am amazed at how many great services they have and for such reasonable prices. On top of that, they even have a CYPER WEEK SALE going on where you can save up to 50%. Their collection of HOLIDAY CARDS is wonderful and it has all different kinds to choose from. I have been checking out several and here are three I really think would work great for me. I tend to like cards that are warm and friendly more than too fancy or that get into religion so that I can send them to all my friends. I also want the kind that fold and are good size for sending, like the 5x7 size. SHUTTERFLY has all different kinds, sizes, and even great designer ones as well, but here are what I think are my favorite three CHRISTMAS PHOTO CARD far!
 How Holly Story Christmas
5x7 folded card
How holly. An elegant holly pattern frames three favorite photos and merry wishes. Inside this Christmas card, you can add four more photos along with a brief update on every family member. Perfect for keeping family and friends up-to-date on the year's activities. (these would allow me 3 shots of the grandbaby)
Goody Garland Christmas
5x7 folded card 
Send holiday cheer when you share this festive cocoa brown holiday card. Customize it with two family photos. Corresponding address labels, gift tags and thank you cards are also available.(here I could include the baby AND my dear Bingo Buddy Pup!)
Pine Cone Frame Christmas
5x7 folded card 
Festive and elegant, a pine cone toile pattern frames a favorite photo in this cranberry red Christmas card. There's room inside for your own greeting and everyone's names.  (this would be great for a wide shot to show off his blue eyes!) 

So, what would YOU choose? The other thing I do want to look at is their CALENDARS. I think I can order these and send them as gifts to family members who haven't been able to see how the family has grown. You can choose from Wall Calendars, Desk Calendars, and Poster Calendars. I think I like the Desk Calendar personally. Here is an example of one I am thinking of ordering.
Desk Calendars 
Enjoy your favorite photos from desk ‘til dawn. Our new desk calendars allow you to customize each month with a special photo. (and look at all the things you can choose with your calendar!)
  • Start your calendar on any month
  • Showcase 1-4 photos
  • NEW stylish designs
  • Handsome and durable built-in easel for display
  • Printed on high-quality heavy cardstock
  • Perfectly sized. Measures 5x11 
Lastly, they have everything else you can think of like Invitations, Graduation Announcement, other holiday cards, but what caught my eye was some Birthday Invitations for when my grandson turns ONE! I can't decide if I would want a photo invitation or regular one. I guess at some point I WILL have to let his parents decide.
