Christmas Card time!

It is the time of year for holiday cards and pictures! In recent years, more and more people are choosing to incorporate their holiday pictures into their cards they send to friends and loved ones. I remember the joy and excitement as a little girl of getting ready for my Christmas portraits each year.

Here is The Southern Fried Bride in my Christmas 1978 portrait:

I've never outgrown the excitement of holiday picture time. Here I am with The Southern Fried Husband as we look forward to Our First Christmas as Mr. and Mrs.

One of my favorite photo greeting card companies is Tiny Prints. According to their website, the company was started by three friends with big dreams and a passion for beautiful paper and began with birth announcements, photo books and baby shower invitations. It has has grown from a tiny, self-funded company specializing in unique baby stationery into a booming online retailer of stylish designs for every occasion. One of those occasions is exemplified in their Holiday 2011 card line. When I first saw this collection, I was taken with countless designs.

This is one of my favorites. The "Wizard of Oz" fan in me was instantly drawn to the Joyful Heart design that uses such unique rainbow detail, plus it conveys the message of Joy, which I believe is what this season is all about!

This one is another favorite design, perfect for a newlywed couple!

I asbolutely love it that they offer a service where they will address, stamp and mail your cards for you! Today is the last day to receive their discount on your holiday card order with free standard shipping and 15% off an order of $49 or more and 20% off an order of $149 or more with code "decfs20".
