Now that all the cards are sent, I can participate in this year’s Christmas Card Carousel & a linkup hosted by Kimberly’s Korner — where you get to share your cards! Great idea. I’m glad I sent mine off early this year!
I knew I wanted a card with all the dogs, but it’s impossible to get them to sit still… So I decided to go cheesy funny this year. Christmas Props. Dog Treats. Tripod. It worked out well. Luckily I found a card that had a perfect layout for both the picture of the humans and the pictures of the pups.
Obviously — used Shutterfly. They had super fast shipping… let’s see… The color is much more vibrant in person and not so dullsky. I ordered about 50 of these and sent them out to the same group of people that got wedding invitations and a few others we added to our list along the year!
I also ordered several watercolor cards that I sent to blog friends to spread the FL sunshine! So — you probably received one of the following three:
Santa is a pirate!
Holiday Palm Trees — our version of Christmas trees
The holiday porch in Florida!
Even more, I ordered some cupcake cards from Vistaprint for some other special people on Swap-Bot… and even more $1 tree cards for random Christmas card swaps! I think I’ve sent out over 150 Christmas cards this year. Sheeeeesh! It didn’t feel like a lot as I was doing them since I did a few at a time, but my mailbox has sure been happy lately with all the fun Christmasy mail!
This weekend I plan to display all the cards until the New Year with a DIY I found on Pinterest. Of course. I needed something that could hold a LOT of cards. I think I found just the thing!
But, without further adieu, some outtakes from “Let’s Take a Semi-Attractive Christmas Card Picture” day:
