Do you have your cards?

I just received my first two Christmas cards in the mail today. One from a cousin and the other from my sweet past-teaching assistant, Cindy {did you know that her son and daugter-in-law own a fabulous candy shop in San Francisco? I totally want to visit}. This got me thinking that I better order my cards incredibly soon. Do you have a shutterfly account? I adore shutterfly and have been using them for quite some time. My top picks for Christmas cards are...

#1 - don't you love the black and white with the contrasting red? I also love the idea of one big picture, instead of multiple.

#2 - This is just too cute for words. I'm thinking this would be perfect for a couple of newly-weds, as well as the children.

#3 - I love the collage of holiday words on this card. The fonts make me want to be a designer.

Are you into the long, slender photo-cards? I have done both; 5X7's and the 4X8 cards. This is a great combination of color along with more than one image. I give it two thumbs up.

And we can't forget that sweet Ella's birthday falls right in the middle of the holiday season. I'm adoring this birthday invite. All 12 months are displayed and this could be used as a birthday announcement {for out of town family and friends} or a birthday invite. I did something similar to this for Ella's birthday decoration {will share that soon}.

Last but not least...the calendar. Almost every year I do a calendar of the cousins for my parents. They love it, and the designs are fresh and unique on shutterfly. You can choose a scrapbook-looking layout, retro, girly, nursery, or modern approach. The possibilities are endless and it's sure to bring a smile to someone this Christmas. I've also done a calendar for my Dad's winter birthday, as well as for Valentine's Day.
