Favourite Thing- Christmas Cards

Oh Friday...I didn't think you would every arrive this week! I've had a crazy, busy, hectic week and I think with the holidays (and World Juniors!) quickly approaching, everything just seems crazier/busier/more hectic. I have one more work week left and then we are closed until January 2. I'm looking forward to the break, but I know I'll be busy.

On to this weeks favourite thing...Christmas Cards!

For the past couple of years, I've ordered my cards from Vista Print. Vista has so many cards to choose from and you can get a great deal. Last year, I got 10 free cards and this year my cards were 50% off!

I love that, with Vista, you can really customize your cards. You can pick the images (or upload your own), the finish, paper type (including recycled paper), colour, greeting, font, etc. 

These are the cards I got last year:



And these are this years cards:


 
I even got matching mailing labels this year!

A number of years ago, I worked with a girl who actually make card (we went to high school together too!) and I always order some cards from her. Her cards are handmade and absolutely beautiful.

 
She just makes a pile of cards and I pick out the ones I like. She always asks if there's anything specific I want (ex all Christmas trees or only using green and white) but I always say no. She's the designer, I totally trust her and I know that I'll love what she comes up with.

I send out over 50 Christmas cards, so it takes me forever to sit down and write them all...but I love doing it.

Hope everyone has a great Friday!
