i've always loved christmas cards. i remember sending them out with my mom when i was little, and then when i was in college (i didn't get many back then!), and then when i got married--the pictures of michael and i, and of course the cards with the kids! i like to put the ones i receive all over my fridge, and then when that fills up i make a clothesline, and then when that is full i have a little christmas tree shaped card holder. i love seeing all of the happy faces, the gold sparkly cards, and the glitter. i like hearing what everyone is up to. i wish that there was not only a christmas card tradition, but more of a monthly card tradition. then we could all be in touch more frequently. who has the time, though? i guess that is why christmas cards are so special!
anyway, shutterfly is doing this great promotion for anyone with a blog: Bloggers get 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly… sign up: http://bit.ly/sfly2010! i think it is an incredible deal, and their cards are so cute! here are my favorites...

the story cards are also fantastic. i think i am going to use one of those this christmas. we've had so much going on this year, so the highlights would translate the best there! check out the photo books, too! they are so cool and easy to make!
