Christmas Cards + $50 Tiny Prints Giveaway!

I need a little help from my friends. A decision this big, can't be made flippantly.

Christmas cards are easily one of my favorite parts of December. I love getting to check the mail everyday to catch up with friends and see the photos that they send of their families. It's true, I've become my mother and now plaster Christmas card photos all over the refrigerator so that I can enjoy them all year long. When my kids get older and want to take turns getting the mail, I'll probably refuse to share the month of December with them.

Yep, I love Christmas cards that much!

In addition to sending cards to family and friends, I'm also part of a large Christmas card exchange with other quad moms all over the country. It's AWESOME! Let me tell you, it's so encouraging to open an envelope and see a bunch of smiling faces. And then realize that these older sets of quads haven't driven their parents insane yet! There is hope for us! :)

So here is the part that I need help with. I need to decide on:
            1. My Christmas card design
            2. The photo(s) I'll use

And there might be a little something in it for you, so keep reading!

This year, I'm super excited to use Tiny Prints to make our Christmas Cards! They have a huge selection of cards in their 2012 lineup, so there is no end of options to choose from. The best part? Their cards start as low as $0.89 each! I've priced a lot of websites, and this one easily has some of the best prices. Yay for affordable cards that don't cut corners on the cuteness!

The only problem is that they might have too much cuteness. 800 different cards worth of cuteness! Holy moley! I've looked through their cards...oh...five or six times at this point, and I'm seriously struggling to narrow it down.

Should I go with one larger photo and keep it simple?

Option A

Option B

Option C

Or should I do a slightly smaller group shot with individual photos of each of the kids?

Option D 

 Option E

And then there is my second problem of which photo to use on the card:

Number 1

Number 2 

I would love it if you would help me out by leaving a comment with your favorite card option and photo number! :)

  2. I like option E number 1, and I may love Christmas cards just as much as you do!

  3. My favorite option is D, and my favorite picture is #2. :)

  4. I love B with picture 2. It's always so hard to decide.

  5. Option E but photo number 2 - do you have one that day of the whole family?

  6. I am drawn to option C. I would use photo 2 for that one because it shows all of the kiddos smiles so well.

  7. I like option d photo 2! Good luck!

  8. Option D, #1. I love seeing you guys in the pic!!

  9. I love layout D with picture #1. It's the whole family! Wait... who is that little one in the back of the picture!! :)

  10. I would go with Option D and Photo #1. The bouncy house is real cute! You can see all the babies and you and your husband look tired but really enjoying them!

  11. Either way, good luck! I like Option C with Number 1 (and removing the girl in the background). However, I also like Option E with Number 2.

  12. Option C, Photo 2. Super cute and thanks for hosting!

  13. I like option D and photo number 2, but anything you pick will just be adorable!

  14. Option D pic 2... Good luck deciding!

  15. Option E, Photo#1...I think most people would like to see each kid individually.

  16. I like E and 1. - Erin Donahoo

  17. Family pic with option E

  18. Option D or E with picture #1. I know picture number one is not the best of one of the boys (not sure which one, sorry!), but I love that it has the parents in it, and I like the composition and the colors and just everything about it. If you pick Option D or E, you can make sure to feature the boy who doesn't looks so great in the group picture in a stellar individual picture of your choice!

  19. Option E with Picture # 1

  20. I love option E and photo number 2! Thanks so much for the fantastic giveaway!

  21. I like c because you first notice the picture not the writing. #1 the family photo

  22. I like card option C and the family picture.

  23. Number 1 the one where you look like you're in a bounce house.

  24. Option E is adorable!! Maybe one of the whole family, then an individual of the kiddos on the right?? SO cute!! I like both the photos, but the one of the kiddos on the hay bale is TOO cute!!




  26. I like Option E and photo 1...but I'm right there with you, Tiny Prints has waaay too many cute options!

  27. Option D, Number 1 . . . but really, they're all great!

  28. option a with pic 2

  29. I like option D. Good luck with your decision!

    Thanks for the chance!
