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

Quoting illinoismommy83:

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.

It isn't my favorite picture. Something just looks off.

Too much photoshop, it looks like his head popped off.

You can really tell you have manipulated this alot, your daughters face doesn't fit properly in its position, her arm is too close to the boys face and neck, Your son doesn't appear to have a body. The idea is noce, i think it's a bit over worked though

I use Facebook. I see everyone's kids all year long online. I do make an effort to mail out recent pics to my elderly family members all year long though.

as I said, I did not edit these photos, someone else did.  I asked her for the untouched shot.
