Puter playing in the paper last Christmas.
 A couple weeks ago I read this post over at Tales and Tails about Christmas cards.  It's about Shutterfly's Holiday cards and an opportunity to get 25 free cards.  I'm not really a Christmas card sending type of person.  I am usually not that organized and motivated to send out cards.  But, even before I read the post I had decided that I wanted send out picture cards this year and was wondering how I would go about doing it.  I always love getting cards from my friends and family, and I really like all of the photo cards I get of friends with their furry family members.  So why shouldn't I send out one too?  I think part of the reason I wanted to send out cards this year is because it was a very hard year almost losing Zephyr.  I know there are still challenges ahead for Zephyr and me, but I am so very thankful that he is here and doing so well.  

I can't wait to see the boys tearing up paper again this year.
So, we are giving it a try.  :-)  Actually, one of the reasons I wanted to take Zephyr and Astro on our Sunday Trip was to try and get a picture for a card.  I think I was successful, I certainly made them pose enough, but I'm not sharing the photo yet.  :-) 

Shutterfly has tons of cards to choose from.  It's going to be hard to decide on a design, but I think I want one that can have a few pictures on it.  They also have gifts and I have always wanted a picture mug so I might have to get one of those too.  For a person who has thousands of pictures and a blog full of pictures I'm a little embarrassed that I haven't done this yet.  Thanks to Tales and Tails for letting us know about this and to Shutterfly for letting us in on the promotion!

I can't wait to see the pictures you choose to use! Your boys are both so handsome, I'm sure the pictures will be stunning!

You're not the only one who hasn't done anything like this before. I only print out pics once a year to submit for the CG calendar. Might have to look into this Shutterfly offer though

Sounds like a brill idea. I know there are companies over here that do this type of thing.

I am assuming that all that wrapping paper came off presents for the boys:)

We did Shutterfly cards last year and I was so happy with them! I can't wait to create the ones for this year!
Good luck creating your cards, I bet they will be great!

We sent out our first picture card last year. :) It turned out nicely. I did not use Shutterfly, although I have heard wonderful things about them. May try them this year.

Hi Hiking Hounds,
I am not a Christmas giving cards either kind of girl.
I would love to have 2 Greys to take picture of tho!! I am in the process of trying to get a greyhound. I have found it is not easy.
Come over and visit if time allows
