My 1st Giveaway!!!

Shutterfly has some awesome holiday cards again this year. I had such a great experience with them last year. Our cards came out beautifully. I chose the flat card that allows you to write on the back. I loved having this option. It has a greeting printed on it so there is no obligation to write anything but as you know last year was a rough year for us when we added our 3rd preemie to the home. Therefore there were a lot of people that I wanted to thank for all their love and support. The back of the card allowed me to do this.


(Sorry, I had to take a picture of our card. Our scanner is down and I couldn't link to a full size example on their website. But you get the idea. This picture doesn't do the card justice but trust me I LOVED them.)

This year, I hope to get some good shots before it gets cold and I will probably choose to do a collage again.

There are so many choices but here are some of my faves.

I think this is precious if you have one child or if you can get the perfect family pic. This one is a stationary card like the one I chose last year.

Let me take a moment and make a suggestion if you are at a time in your life where you are pre-kids, or post-kids or never wanna have any kids ;). Jared and I didn't do Christmas Photo Cards before kids and I SOOOOO wish we had. I think it is such a great way to make sure you are getting at least one good yearly picture and I LOVE to see pics of young couples. I recommend you do one this year. Those of you who are post-kids we 30-somethings need to see that marriages really do stand the test of time. I'd LOVE to get a card from couples who are empty-nesters and are still in love. And to my sisters, enter this giveaway because I'd like to have a Christmas pic from each of you too. :)

OK moving on....

I'm really loving this one for our family. I also need to include the year like they have done. Last year I forgot this step.

Love this one too....

this one is great too....

As you can see I am going to have a REALLY tough time choosing. SO I guess my only warning would be to the indecisive.....let another family member choose for you so you can get them done BEFORE Christmas. :)

So all that to say this:

Last year I posted about my free holiday cards and THIS YEAR my readers are going to have the same opportunity. 3 of you have a chance to win 25 holiday cards from Shutterfly.

Here is how you win......

1) Head on over to Shutterfly, look around at their selection of cards, then come back and tell me which one you would choose. (But don't worry if you win you don't have to stick with your choice. If you are like me you'll agonize over which to choose :) and miss the giveaway all together.)

2) You must be a follower of {Our Sweet Peas} to win.

3) You must leave a comment. No e-mail entries please. (However if you have a question about how to become a follower OR how to leave a comment feel free to email me your questions).

This giveaway will run for 3 days. It starts today, Saturday, October 22nd, and ends Monday, October 24th at Midnight EST.

Giveaway is closed. I will announce the three winners on Wednesday!

I like the Classic Label card. We are going with a brown & red theme so any of those with brown and red would work too! I just became a follower even though I have you in my blogroll. Hope I win! :)

Hello my sister Becky. I looked at Shutterfly and there were so many adorable cards I couldn't believe it. One that stood out to me was the "with love" card. Love you. Molly

Hello - I've been a silent follower of your blog since I heard about it when my little guy was in the NICU with your little Addy. I LOVE Shutterfly cards and use them every year for Christmas Cards. One of my favorites this year is the "Very Merry Moments".
