I’m participating in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Cardstore. I received complimentary cards and a promotional item as a thank you for participating and to facilitate this post.
Can you believe we are already less than 2 weeks from Thanksgiving? I don’t know about you but I’ve got so much on my to-do list between now and the end of the year that I don’t know how I’ll fit it all in. It’s pretty much the same story every year, but with the way the calendar works out, Thanksgiving falls on Nov. 28. That means there are only 25 days between Black Friday and Christmas. That’s 6 LESS than last year!
Before you get too stressed out thinking about this, take a few minutes to consider what you can knock off the list quickly NOW. I’ve decided to plan ahead this year and get my holiday cards done early so it’s one less thing I have to worry about later.
For the second year in a row, I’m using Cardstore.com to create and send personalized photo cards. They make it so fast and easy, I decided to create two versions this year: one from Daisy to her furry friends and one from our family to all of the humans on our Christmas card list. Since their online tools let you pull your favorite pet and family photos from Dropbox, Instagram, Facebook, Google Drive, and your PC or other device, it really speeds up the process of choosing and re-sizing photos. You can edit and personalize your card as much as you want until it’s perfect!
Don’t be afraid to experiment with layouts, pictures, messages, and signature. You can save several versions, then once you decide and preview your custom cards, Cardstore will print, stamp and send them out for you – helping to take one huge item off your already full holiday to-do list!
Many people include their pets in their family portraits but Woof Woof Papa and I can never get it together enough to take professional shots, so I usually just use a photo of Daisy’s cute face that I’ve taken during the year. Cardstore has design templates for whatever style and theme you like to send, including animal-themed ones. Here’s the one I made for Daisy to send to all of her pet pals:
Since the clock is ticking, I suggest you go ahead and try it! When you’re ready, visit Cardstore to create your own cards and take advantage of one of these discount offers:
