Shutterfly giveaway! 3 winners!

Hello friends! October is almost over and that means the holidays are just around the corner (eek!) I love the holidays, and now that I have a little one- I’m looking forward to Christmas even more. One of my favorite things every year is sending (and receiving) Christmas cards. It’s such a small detail that really means a lot and makes people feel warm and fuzzy inside, don’t you think?

Now- since it’s never too early to get started on your holiday planning, Shutterfly has offered to give away 25 free cards each to 3 lucky Blog Giveaways readers!

Shutterfly is a great company that I have used many times for prints, photobooks, calendars and cards. Their work has always been top notch and I have always received my items in a timely manner. In fact, I love them so much that I used them for my baby’s birth announcement this year.

They always have a great selection of Christmas cards and holiday cards. Here are a few I’m considering for my family’s card this year:





As you can tell, I’m a fan of the aqua and red color scheme. The top card is my favorite because obviously my baby is going to be the star of the picture this year, so I like the fact that it says "little Christmas" :)

Do you have plans to send out holiday cards? Even if you don’t- you can use the 25 free cards to get some thank you cards or any other greeting cards you like.

To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment below letting me know what your favorite thing about the holidays is. That’s it. Just be sure to leave an e-mail address in that comment so I can contact you if you win.

For a second entry- post on twitter and/or facebook about this giveaway, come back and leave a link to your tweet and/or post.

Giveaway will close October 31- winners will be announced on November 1.

please note that comments are moderated, so it might take a bit before your comment shows up.

I was not paid for this post. All of the opinions expressed here are my own. Shutterfly has graciously gifted me with a free cards code, which I will happily use since I was going to order my cards from them anyway.

My favorite part of the holidays is finding that one gift for a friend or family member that you know they'll LOVE. The one gift that you can't wait to give to them.

I love Christmas spirit. I know that probably sounds cliche, but there is something different about the month of December that is so much more joyful than any other time of the year.

My favorite thing about the Holidays is the feeling of togetherness. It seems even those who do not normally get along are able to be kinder to each other. Just a great atmosphere overall! (rendter at hotmail dot com)

My favorite thing about the holidays is the warm air coming inside from the cold combined with the smells of pine and nutmeg in the air. ah... winter.

I love the feeling of "special" in the air and how people seem to reach out to others more during the holidays.

Thanks for the chance to win!

So hard to choose, but my favorite would have to be how happy everyone usually is at the christmas season! Thank you! itlnprncss29@aol.com

My favorite thing about the holidays is the doors that are opened to share our faith with others. We always seek to tell others about how awesome God is. Christmas is a time for us to have plenty of opportunity to tell others about His love.
