Tis...The Season for Mail!

One of my favorite things is checking the mail everyday when I get home from work! Strange I know. But the thought of  getting something really fun and unexpected - I love that!!!! Not bills but a letter or packages!!! I especially love getting and sending holiday cards!! They are always wide and varied and normally very indicative to those who have sent them to you. I love seeing how family distant looks, it is amazing how much kids change over the course of a year! 

I recently stumbled across the wide variety of Holiday Cards at Shutterfly - and was truly amazed at the quality and styles! There are some really chic and modern styles as well as some that allow you to include multiple images (If you have more to share!) 

And after a recent OK from the Hubs (he normally isn't a fan of Holiday cards - he just doesn't know I may or may not have signed his name to a few that went to our friends last year! Sorry Babe!!!) I began my search. I looked initially at some local big box stores, you never know sometimes you can find just what you are looking for. However, I came up empty handed. I then turned to the internet and voila! 

I really love our wedding pictures and if ever there was a time I could force them down your throat again I could use them it was this year!  I thought including one to family who may or may not have seen our favorites would be a nice addition to a standard card(but then printing copies and all that) - and a photo card would be perfect. Of course while I was browsing you know I found other items that I might need to order as well!!!! (Shutterfly has amazing offers by way of personalized calendars, personalized Thank You notes and even those fun photo canvas'!)

Plus, Shutterfly even has an option to address and send them out for you, LOVE! Easy-peasy dolls! 

Are you sending out Holiday cards this year??? OOOO maybe we need to do a 'Blogger Card/Gift exchange!" Anyone in - $10 limit, simple thoughtful fun??? I will totally put it together! Let me know if you are interested! :) 

These are my top contenders....I just need to get the Hubs final approval. Which do you like the best? (Can you guess which one I am leaning towards??)
