I May Have Addiction Issues.

So, I'm not sure if you've heard but I'm a BIG fan of picnik for playing around with photos (LOVE thier new winterize effect!).  I may have gotten so addicted that I'm actually-gasp!-going to send out photo Christmas cards this year. I know, I know, it's like I've crossed over to the dark side.  But, let me explain:
1) That Addison is a cutie patootie.
2) Especially when you picnik her photo
3) With only about 2 weeks left before I have to mail out cards, and having only about 10 done, there's no way I could get enough done to send out, even if I went completely clean and simple.
4) With the card I picked out from Shutterfly, we will totally win the "best photo card" contest of any mantel!
5) Shutterfly is offering 50 free photo cards in return for blogging about said photo cards.  It's the last day to sign up for the promotion, check it out here.

Plus it's been a while since I sent out photo cards-we sent one out with our engagement photos the December before we got married, and then sent out one with wedding photos the next December.  Both times we ordered from Shutterfly and got so many compliments.  We've been slackers the past couple of years for no real reason, and then I go to check them out this year and-wowza-they have really stepped up their game!

I mean, how cool is this top ten list?
Or I do always love a monogram!
This last one was a very close second to the one I finally chose. I love the aqua mist and red color scheme:
Which one did I choose?  Well, you'll just have to wait and see what shows up in the mailbox!

(ps--I'm in the middle of a tag-making frenzy right now, but I hope to have some new cards to post soon!  Thanks for keeping tuned in!)

What a great off-beat post, Meg! :D I'm betting you chose the last format. ;)

Well, now you've got me on the edge of my seat! Will it be a winterized Addie with a rudolph nose and/or santa hat? I came dang close to posting a photo with a holly frame earlier, but I resisted.

I did, however, just scrap two picniked photos -- cross-process AND vignette. They're pretty sweet, if I do say so myself. :) I'll have to post that one once the DT craziness has died down.

Hey, Meg!! Oooo, can't wait to see that crazy cute Addison photo card. I can totally relate to the dearth of handmade cards. December can really sneak up on a crafty person. I'm still trying to squeeze in making teacher gifts. I thought I was in good shape, but a quick look at the calendar confirms that I delusional about that. Yikes! Gotta kick it into high gear . . .

Anywho, LOVED reading your fun post! What a great accompaniment to my morning tea. :)
