Oh My! CHRISTmas Cards from Shutterfly!

 Last year's CHRISTmas card photo-2009

After I saw this blog post here, I  plan on using Shutterfly for this year's cards also.

I always send cards each year with a family photo included on the card and with a religious CHRISTmas theme and message to share the true meaning of CHRISTmas with friends and family.   It's fun to look back at our past cards and to see how our family has changed and grown through the years.

Shutterfly has a great selection of  photo cards  and I am especially pleased to see that cards can be sorted by "Religious Christmas Cards".

I love this card here titled "Mod Merry Ornaments Christmas" because there is room for lots of pictures and a personal message:

In the religious CHRISTmas cards selection, I love how the card pictured below,  Nativity Blessing, includes the Nativity with a space for a great family shot or a picture of your blessings:

There are also options to send folded cards like this Rejoice Lord King card where you can have a picture and a personal message on the inside of the card also:

Shutterfly is also offering a promotion for bloggers to create a post like this showcasing some of your favorite Shutterfly cards to be able to receive 50 free Christmas cards, but hurry because this deal is ending tomorrow, Friday, Dec. 10th!

I give Joy to the World when I tell others of another great way to share Christmas joy with Shutterfly cards!

i was suprised to read that 43% of Americans (polled I guess) do not send Christmas Cards. I don't send them- but I though I was in a smaller group of people that 43%.

cute picture!

Hi Annita,
Thanks always for your continued visits and kind comments! Our 2009 Christmas card was taken in our backyard woods and many people have asked us why there was a wreath hanging from a tree! LOL :) I liked my wreath prop to add to the seasonal card even if others thought it a bit odd :)
I hope you are having a blessed Advent as well :)
Have a blessed weekend!

You have such a beautiful family Tracy. I love the wreath in the background:). I will have to look into shutter bug and see if they work with folk overseas. i used to get a Christmas picture of the family every year but having photos done professionally here is very very expensive. Voted for you.

Hi,
Stopping by from friday blog hop.
Hope you will follow back.
We home school also. I love your Christmas pictures.
Have a blessed weekend.

I love sending out Christmas cards! One of my pet peeves is that it can be so difficult to find ones that say Merry Christmas instead of Happy Holidays. I did notice that all the cards I have received so far this year say Merry Christmas!! I love that. Have fun choosing and creating your cards :)

What great CHRISTmas cards!

I'm stopping by from the Friday Hop and am now a follower on GFC and FB.

Stop by if you get a chance:

Hi Anna-Marie,
Thank you for your kind comments! We haven't taken a professional photo (from a photo store) of our family in awhile, but since my dad used to be a full time professional photographer he is always willing to take our family pictures :)
Have a blessed weekend! PS: If you come to the states again I can have my dad take a beautiful family picture of you :)
