Are You As Late As Me With Your Christmas Cards?

Hello and Happy Holidays everyone, one of my favorite things during 
the holidays is to create a Christmas card to send to friends and family. 
Problem is, I run behind every year....always last minute!!!
Luckily on-line sites like safe me each year!
I used this afternoon after taking some quick 
pictures on the back patio. 

I always prefer to take my own Christmas pictures at home. 
It beats going to a photo studio with a fake and boring back ground any day! 
It does not have to be fancy, just some Christmas decor in the 
back ground and some cute models. I prefer to take pictures outside for 
the best lighting but if the weather does not cooperate check out what I did 
last Christmas  HERE has a lot of great card designs to choose from, you can upload 
and create a beautiful Christmas card from tons of layouts and designs. 
I loaded my pictures within minutes of taking them and voila... 
Now I just have to wait for them to arrive in the 
mail and I will still be able to get them all out before Christmas. 

Here are some examples of wonderful cards they have to choose from.

So for those of you that still haven't gotten 
around to do your cards, you still have time!

  3. What a cute backdrop with the hot chocolate, cookies and lanterns! So pretty and Christmassy!!!

  4. Very cute background set up. I need to do ours, guess we'll do them this week, and then run them off to the press.

  5. These are beyond adorable Christine! Just looked at them with our little guy & he said "be sure to tell her they're all so cute"! Our kids and husband tried to convince me to say yes to a bunny this summer (same kind as yours!)... I regret it now, seeing the pics do yours! He's so fluffy!

  8. I don't bother with Christmas cards (seeing as how I see the entirety of my family every day) but I wanted to say that I love how you included the pets in your photos. I was lured in from Show Me Saturday by the bunny in the photo :D

  9. Your son is such a cutie! One year when when it was snowing, I made my daughters get on their Christmas dresses and pose on my front porch because the snow had piled up so perfectly in the lattice. It was the perfect backdrop for our cards! They still tease me about it and it's still my favorite picture! Thanks for sharing at Pin-Worthy Wednesday, pinned!

  10. I don't even do the cards anymore...just too much work! But I do a Cmas ecard for friends/family :)
    I do miss receiving cards in the mail, but you can't expect what you don't send out.

    Thanks so much for coming & linking up with us on last week's Inspired By Me Mondays! Hope you can come join us again for this week's party :) Rachael @ Diamonds in the Rough
