Okay, I admit it. I'm not as crafty during this season as I had been in my previous life. I used to actually craft all my cards by hand. Well, by rubberstamping most and using a photo of either my pets or a painting I did that past year. Lately, I just either haven't had the time or the energy to want to even consider this anymore. Plus, with my large extended family, I really just don't want to think about it. However, I am going to go tech this year. I think I've also found the perfect card to do this year.
And, while yes, I do have blonde cousins (I have them in all hair colors actually... I'm a mutt... hee hee) there is no way I would have children that blonde. So, this comes directly from Shutterfly. Plus, I don't have kids so getting this EXACT card from me would really make the family gossip go flying! lol So, I was thinking on taking this card and put my pets on the front (hey, they are my babies after all). Plus, there is a little area where I can make up a funny blurb under the photo. Now all I have to do is take a few dozen pics and chose what would work best with some sort of strange blurb. *puts thinking cap on*

Well, now I'm actually a bit excited about doing this. Got some of my creative juices flowing without making me cringe on how many of these I would have had to do by hand. *cringe* <-see! Plus, I can expand this idea from the Christmas cards to address labels (if I really want to look snazzy) or even calenders so I can make them stare at my babies all year round! *evil laugh* Seriously, though, I have considered putting my doberman on a mug because you wouldn't believe how hard it is to find doberman stuff. *exasperated huff* Guess I'll have to see how photogenic he is when I take those pictures. Start brushing that fur kids!

Btw, how would you, my bloggy friends, like to get free 50 cards from Shutterfly? Well, go to the Shutterfly blog and sign up. After you sign up they will e-mail you back and let you know what to do next. Just have some fun and let someone else do the work this season. ;)


  1. What can I say? I like a bargain. 50 cards helps out this year. ;)

  2. I was about to compliment you on your adorable little angels...

  3. LOL

    Afraid if I had kids they would be covered in mud or something. :D

  4. I LOVE Shutterfly. I have used them to make scrapbooks and they are always fantastic looking. :D

  5. I seriously adore Shutterfly.

    I just bought my auntie an ornament on there.
