Christmas Cards whaaaaaaaaa

I know I am not the only crazy person thinking about Christmas already. Heck Hobby Lobby had their Christmas swag up in July...that means I'm late!

Thanks to Alana, I am obsessed with Shutterfly's Christmas cards and need some help choosing ours. I realized we don't have many family pictures (family meaning Jon, me and Ernie). Well we actually only have 3 (that I posted here) so I had to improvise. We've been married almost a year so wedding pictures are a little stale. Luckily I still have some time to take more pictures.

But I need YOUR help! I narrowed down the hundreds of Christmas card options (okay so I didn't look through all of them, patience is a virtue I don't have) and now I need help choosing.

Option #1- Top 10 of 2011

  • I love that we can share some of the top 10 moments of our year
  • 3 picture slots is nice, I can sneak in a wedding pic
  • I love the blue!

Option #2- Religious

  •  The pros are self explanatory. We are wild about Jesus and want to share the true meaning of Christmas. One of my favorite things to call the Lord is Price of Peace.
  • Again, the colors are awesome
  • Con- only 1 pic. Pups are so fidgety we will need to take tons

Option #3- whimsical

  •  I loveeee the art, graphics and fonts on this one
  • 3 pictures...they are each pretty small so I decided to use individual pics

I would love your input on which card style is your favorite! I <3 my followers and totally trust you guys.

you're not alone, miss ruthie. i'm ordering our christmas cards TODAY! so excited to get them in. i'll share them on my blog after i get them all mailed out. i think most of the people that read my blog are family, so i don't want to ruin the surprise.

and sorry, but i can't help you decide. they are all so so good! maybe you could just order a few of each and make it a lottery.

1st or 3rd definitely! I love that you can share all your big moments this year which is so important because of how BIG this year as been for y'all! - marraige, fur-baby, and house? heck yes! or the 3rd is cool how you have the three individual pictures and it goes really well together. :)

my fave is the top 10 moments card. it's a fun way to share what's happened in your lives over the course of the year. and like you said, the colors are so pretty. and the three pictures slots are a plus.

Allison said...

Whichever you choose, you can't go wrong. They're all great! I especially like #1. I need to get on the picture-taking and card-ordering :) Thanks for the reminder!

Mike and I both vote for the first one! I like the whimsical style too, but I love the photos in the first one.

JMarie said...

I like #3 the best!

Carita said...

I like #1, since it gave us a glimpse into your past year, but we I also really like #2 because we have that same faith and think that is THE most important thing about Christmas! Glad you guys are our neighbors and look forward to hopefully spending more time together.

They are all super cute! I would have to say either #1 or #2, not that I didn't really like #3 too, but here's why: I love that on #1 you can share the highlights of your year (and the wedding picture in there...great idea!) It gives people a little glimpse into your year and what you found special.
I'm partial to #2 because that's what we've always looked at on Christmas cards, sharing the true message of Christmas.

Good luck choosing! It's going to be a tough one :)

Amanda said...

I think I like the first and last the best! But they are all really cute!

Gina said...

Wendy said...

I might be in the minority, but I like #2

Heather said...

I LOVE #1! I think it's so fun that photo companies are FINALLY starting to do the "top events of the year" lists... I've always loved that!! The other ones are cute, too, though :)
