The holiday cards are coming in by the droves these days, and I love all of them…every last one. Some are so unique and others traditional, but mostly what I like about them is that I get to see the personalities of my friends displayed in what kind of card they decided upon. If I were to pick a favorite style of card, it would have to be the ones that include photos.
I’m sitting here at my desk, looking at a card from a good friend who, up until this year, has always sent a card with just her daughter’s photo. But, this year, the whole family was in the shot, and instead of dressing all up in fancy, matchy matchy clothes (nothing wrong with that for sure), they were at a Minnesota Twins game ~ Mom, Dad, and daughter, all sporting their own brand of a Twins t-shirts, sitting out in the sunshine clearly having a great family time. On the inside were 3 more pictures of the same kind! Love love love this card!
Others I’ve seen are very pet focused. Have you noticed this trend, the folks who perhaps don’t have children or children at home anymore take adorable shots of their dog or cat? I think it’s a wonderful trend and I hope it never stops! I don’t think there’s a person alive who doesn’t enjoy a cute animal photo, so those cards are quickly becoming very popular.
Then still others are classic and traditional, and those are just comforting to receive, aren’t they? To know that some things stay the same and still look amazing and evoke the warm fuzzies in me is one of the best feelings there is.
Although time is running short, if you are looking for a great holiday card that gives you the freedom to express yourself, check out what we’ve got on our website.

I have often sent my cards after Christmas, making them more of a New Year’s card and pretend it was on purpose. Haha, don’t tell anyone.
