Shutterfly Thanks the Troops (and so can you!)

I was asked by Shutterfly to share with you something neat that they are currently doing over on their Facebook page. Right now, in honor of Veteran’s Day this upcoming Sunday, Shutterfly will send a customized card on your behalf (and at no cost to you) to a person currently serving in the military. They are attempting to send a card to every single one of these dedicated people. Won’t you do your part?

It really is simple and doesn’t take more than five minutes of your time. Here’s how:

  1. Go to Shutterfly’s facebook page and “Like” them if you haven’t already.
  2. Click on this link or the link found on their fan page under the post “Thank the Troops.”
  3. Pick out your card (below is a sample of the four choices) and personalize it however you want. You can even add a photo if you wish.
  4. Click send and Shutterfly does the rest!

My brother-in-law and his family are currently proudly serving our country. Words can not express how appreciative I am for their sacrifices for our safety. Sending a card is a small way of paying back that ever-lasting debt of gratitude.

Thinking Ahead with Shutterfly

I have some news. Some of you might think it is good news, some not so good news. Here it goes: in just about two more months it will be Christmas. Say What?! Christmas! The Christmas catalogs are already starting to arrive at my house. The three year old has already mastered the refrain of “I want that” towards practically everything she sees. So along with the catalogs comes the thinking of what our Holiday Cards will look this year. We usually try to take a family picture at the local Arboretum every year and use that as the main photo on our card. This year I am thinking of looking at the designs that Shutterfly offers first and perhaps try to coordinate what we will wear to the card that we like best.

Here are some Holiday Cards that I am considering.  Let me know your thoughts: 

Blessed Tidings: I like the simplicity of this one.

Blessed Script: I really like the fonts used here.

Merry Filled Wishes: I like the simple black border.

A couple of things I have noticed as I have been searching through all of the selections of Holiday Cards is not just that I really like simple cards (and the word blessed) but also I am really liking the idea of using black and white photos this year! I think also choosing a card with little or no border takes the pressure off of matching your card to the outfits in the photo you use. Whew.

Why not take a moment and check out all that Shutterfly has to offer for your Holiday Cards needs this year? They have some great special offers going on right now. Just think what a relief it will be to at least have picked out your cards.  Remember … only two more months!

Please let me know what your favorite card is and/or what you think of my choices.

Take Care,
