Our Shutterfly Christmas Cards

So I have just ordered our Christmas Cards from Shutterfly, which y'all helped me on a couple posts ago....  Of course, when I went to creat them, I found more designs that I liked better, and didn't go with any of your suggestions anyways...  I'm a jerk, I know.

Here's the final product:

First of all, they include one of our beautiful engagement pictures from Jim Strathearn Photography.
Second, they aren't obnoxiously christmas-y.  I love the snowflakes.  The brown strip is different for a christmas card, too.
I love that it is short and sweet.  I only send Christmas cards to close friends and family, so it is not necessary for me to have a lot of space to say things.  I don't wanna give you an update on my whole year.  Most years, it wouldn't be that exciting.  This year, I could say, we got engaged and we went on some really amazing trips.  We had a lot of fun together.  Our lives are pretty everyday, and that's what I love about us.  We don't have to have this amazing mindblowing year to be incredibly happy.  Being together makes an ordinary day pretty darn extraordinary.
So these are our Christmas cards -- they are simple, fun, and subtle.  AND I can't wait to send them out!

I still wish we coulda have had a picture with Lily for our Christmas cards.  She's such a large part of my life that I really wanted her on there.  But John said no.  He didn't want a "family" christmas card with the cat.
Hope he knows that next year, he'll have no choice.  :)

Who wouldn't want this cute face on their Christmas card?
