Christmas Cards

I have a love for pretty paper, stationery, notecards, and photo cards. When Caroline was born, I found TinyPrints and ordered her birth announcements from them. I've since ordered Valentines, twin birth announcements, Christmas cards, birthday cards, and photo thank-you notes from Tiny Prints.

Christmas cards are my F-A-V-O-R-I-T-E though!I start planning for my family Christmas cards in July (what are we all going to wear? I want us to match but not be too "matchey", do we wear Christmas colors? where should we have the pictures taken? will I have a good hair day? when do I need to schedule my next hair appointment so my highlights are fresh for pictures?). Luckily Nicole Faby is a family friend and top-notch photographer, so I know that she'll get some good ones when I finally get my act together and decide on our outfits (and get my hair appointment made).  I also know that if I order from Tiny Prints that my cards will be perfectly made. The selection is organized well and the colors are classic and lovely yet still unique. While other photo sites seem to be more "cookie-cutter" with every card being a version of what another vendor is selling, Tiny Prints cards stand out. Here are some 2012 contenders for our family photo card:
I love these colors!

I love this saying! The older I get, the more I like seeing cards that help our family keep "CHRIST" in Christmas!

Another beautiful saying and lots of room for a great picture.

Tiny Prints has some great deals going on right now that make ordering your Christmas cards affordable! Check out their specials page!  I am also going to sweeten the pot by giving away one lucky reader a $50 credit to Tiny Prints (aren't they a peach?!). To enter, leave me a comment telling me what you have planned for your family Christmas card. The giveaway will end on November 18 at 8pm. The credit cannot be used with any other offer or promotion and shipping is not included. Tiny Prints sponsored this post and this generous giveaway.

Now the hardest part will be narrowing down which card you are going to get (and what you are going to wear in your card)!Christmas Cards

Every year we take a family photo with my husbands parents for our Christmas cards. We have 3 generations in these photos. Every year it is something different, one year it was with a classic vehicle, another one was a family pic taken the day of dedication of our little girl. This year it is definitely going to be fun since she is 2 (today is her birthday!!!)

This is our first year with our baby boy, so I'm super excited to have his happy little face on our cards!

Not sure yet we will be doing for cards, but I am sure that miss thing will be front and center! Probably sporting her new Three in the Nest gear!

I have nothing planned. I'm hoping Patrick will agree to stand still while the button is pushed!

I love Tiny Prints also! We always have a professional photog take our pic to use on the card, because you know how hard it is to get a good picture of 3 kids ;)
