{It's that time of year...ordering Christmas cards}

 *this is a sponsored post. I was given free product in exchange for my review. All opinions are mine.

It's no surprise that I love Christmas around here!! It's my favorite holiday, ever. I just love everything about it. Every year we try to take a few family Christmas pictures...1.) to have and 2.) for our Christmas cards. 

If you're anything like me you have a hard time picking out the card. Especially when places like the cardstore has so many cute designs to choose from. 

My favorite section was the Holiday Design Collection. And more specifically, the Rustic Charm and Heavenly Night collections. So.many.cute designs! I must have browsed for 2 hours and created at least 17 different cards before I found the one. The site is very easy to use and quick, too.

I finally decided on the card below. Because, well, gold foil!!! I am obsessed with all things gold right now. Gold screams Christmas to me. And I loved the wording and the fonts on the card too. Plus, this particular design held 4 pictures and that's exactly how many I wanted to use on my card. PS - if you have a certain number of pictures you want to use you can narrow down designs by # of picture. Easy peasy!

I am so excited and in love with our card. I can't wait to get these in the mail and then send them out to our loved ones. Want to see a sneak peak of our card???

Also, I want to share with you all an awesome contest they are running at cardstore. It's called the Candid Christmas Cards Contest! So fun, right? I can't even tell you how much fun I had looking at all of the entries! If you have a candid moment you'd like to enter I encourage you to do so. And if you do, please share with me? I'd love to see!!!!

What does Christmas really look like in your house? If you're like us, it's not always candy canes and sugar plums, and nowhere close to a silent night. So, we know you've got 'em - those "Christmas card photo failures" full of temper tantrums, crying kiddies, silly family games, and those just plain awkward photos that you thought would never see the light of day -- until now.


Choose your funniest "real life" photo and post it on our Christmas card template to create your "real" Christmas card and submit it to us! Use #MyChristmasStory when sharing to encourage family and friends to get in on the fun! You can submit as many cards as you like by the submission end date, and then you (and everyone else) can vote for your favorites. The 3 photos with the most votes will be our winners!


The grand prize winner will receive a $1,500 Visa gift card to put towards a holiday trip for your crazy family, a Nikon CoolPix camera, and free Cardstore Christmas cards to send out to their loved ones this holiday season!
