what's christmas without photo cards?

i love seeing how families have grown and changed throughout the year when i start pulling christmas cards out of the mailbox after thanksgiving. i like to see who is most on the ball with the first card to arrive. i think i'm so impressed because i'm never that on the ball, evident by the fact that i'm still perusing christmas cards on december 14.

i also like to flip the cards over and see where my super cute friends are buying their super cute cards. quite often, they are shopping at shutterfly. me included!

our christmas card last year as well as grayson's birth announcements (the design i bought is discontinued, but there are lots of other cute options!) were from shutterfly. i have always been so impressed with the paper/design quality as well as the selection for such a great price, and this year's christmas card selection is no different.

i vascillate between super cute and colorful (see last year) and clean and simple. i could go either way with all the options available. i'm also a sucker for anything vintage inspired!

here are a few i'm considering:

simple, vintage-y fabulousness.

sweet and snowflakey.

colorful yet understated.

the bird. the block-print look. the colors. LOVE.

i posted this year's christmas card photo at the top of this post. keeping that (ultra sweet) photo in mind, which card do you think i should order?

Yep, I agree... the last one is very you.

I like the last one, too...
But, just for fun, consider that the super sweet photo blends nicely with sweet snowflake choice as well. :)
