give it to me straight - is this a good x-mas card idea? - EDITED with 2nd picture choice

Posted by   + Show Post

This pic


with the words

"santa's been watching ALL year?"

and then under the pic

"Hope you find yourself on the nice list this year.  Happy Holidays"


another option for the photo - I would use a different saying on the card



this is the same pic as above, just cropped in more

 If your son is goofy (like mine) then I LOVE the picture. If I took one like that it would totally work for me because my son is silly and it would really show his personality.

Everyone can take cute pictures of their kids posing, but pictures like the one you took - those will be remembered the most.

I was thinking their hair looks dirty :o

Sorry OP, it just does :/

Don't like the phrase & I think it would look much nicer if their hair was brush since they're all dressed up.

What do YOU do with your Christmas cards? If you are like most people you look at them for 30 seconds, put it in the pile with the other Christmas cards, then throw them all out on Dec 26th.

Don't over analyze your card. If you like it, send it. No one else is going to think twice about it.

I will admit though, in the 30 seconds that I am glancing at a card, I do smile more over a beautiful family photo where as I'd be more likely to toss your card down sooner since I'm not a fan of the "my kids won't smile in photos for some reason and this is the best shot we got" look. No matter the pose I'd be throwing it out on Dec 26

Really? You don't keep the pictures of your family members or close friends?

That's so weird to me. Christmas cards are the only photos I get all year of some family members. I keep them.

I love the second, more cropped one.  That's too adorable.

Out of all of those, I like the second one. The first one looks like someone superimposed their faces. The second one is grainy and I don't think you will be happy with the print quality.
