25 Shutterfly Christmas Cards -winners announced!

Update by Rhonda
I apologize for being so pokey about announcing the winners of this contest.  I thought Nina was picking and notifying the winners and she thought I was .

the winners are Cindy, Dawn and Emily.
thank you to all who read about and entered this contest.
Shutterfly really is one of my favorite online companies.

Hi Everyone!  This is Nina, Rhonda's AMAZING and AWESOME daughter (hee hee, Momma told me I could write whatever I wanted!) here.  I am so excited to tell you about one of my favorite online companies - Shutterfly.

I first found Shutterfly in 2007 when I was planning my wedding.  I didn't want a "normal" guestbook for my wedding, I wanted something that everyone could write a message in, so I made a Shutterfly Photo Book out of our engagement pictures.  I made sure to leave plenty of white space around the edges of the pages so everyone would have plenty of room to write.  I also wrote the story of how John and I began dating and the proposal story in the beginning of the book, so we would always remember the "funny little things" that have happened.

BUT! I'm really here to tell you about their Holiday Cards!  I have used Shutterfly for my holiday cards for the past 2-3 years and I have always been thrilled with the results. They have so many different designs to chose from.  Every time I look at their cards, I find new favorites!  I'm so indecisive that I usually order several different designs.  We haven't had our pictures taken for our cards yet, so I'm using some pictures we took on our beach vacation this summer.

Here are a few of my favorites this year:

I am always on the search for "Religious" Christmas cards without them being cheesy or old fashioned.  I really like the new designs Shutterfly has this year.  They still convey the message, but they are also fun and modern.

They also have a large variety of items on their Stationary Page.  They have Invitations for Christmas Parties, Address Labels, Gift Tags and even Thank you cards if you are feeling extra ambitious! 

Now for the fun part!! Shutterfly will give 3 of you a code for 25 free Holiday Cards!  Yay!  Here's how to enter (Please leave a separate comment for each entry you complete):

1 Entry - Leave a comment telling me your favorite holiday tradition (can be a current tradition, on you had growing up, or a neat one that you've heard from someone else).

1 Entry - Blog about this Giveaway on your blog

I will choose three lucky winners on Saturday, October 29.

P.S. if you like hearing from me, let my Momma know and maybe she'll have me back to share again! :)

Disclaimer: Shutterfly provided us with 50 free holiday cards and free shipping (along with the 3 codes that I am giving away).  But all opinions/thoughts/random musings are all mine.  

this contest is over and closed  


  1. My son and I always decorate our Christmas tree together and take it down the day after New Years's together. It's our mom/son Christmas bonding!

  2. We always put up our tree on Thanksgiving afternoon. We have a wood heater so no live trees. I continue that tradition now. It is a nice start to the Christmas season.

  3. Having Christmas at my house and putting on a meal for my kids and grand children. I enjoy that the most probably, besides watching the kids and grands open their gifts.
    Thanks so much for a chance to win this amazing giveaway!
    Hugs, Cindy

  4. My favorite holiday tradition is every Christmas morning we all wake up and eat Beignets (a french doughnut that is DELISH)in our pj's before opening presents!!

  5. Each family member has a stocking hung and we all put goodies in each...do the wrapped gifts first...then each dumps out the contents of their stockings to see what treasures they have received...this creates more excitement than the big gifts...RoRo

  6. We celebrate Hanukkah. We light candles sing songs and eat cheese fritters.. :)

  7. Another family traditiion...After the presents, Christmas dinner, naps for some, and more snacking the last thing we do is have RoRo's Christmas punch which we drink out of the Imperial Starlight crystal goblets and then Christmas is officially over! M-m-m-m-m-wish I had a glass right now!
