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

It says year too many times.

How about "Santa's been watching..."

"Hope you find yourself on the nice list this year"

and then Happy Holidays.

I like the bottom cropped one. Your kids seem happier.

We keep all the Christmas cards too. I have a box they are all in. After Christmas when I put the new ones in, I usually go through the old ones and see how people have changed, new family members, etc.
Also, we keep the cards from family members and close friends on the tree so we can look at it all December.
I LOVE christmas cards (then again, I love anything related to Christmas so that's probably why :)

I use facebook too but I still like having physical pictures.

Maybe I'm just weird. LOL


Quoting illinoismommy83:

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.

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 think both kids look really cute on the last one, although the lightning on your DD's face looks weird. Too much editing.

In the second one where her wrist and hand meet...it looks like a fake hand. I would go with the last one.

I was thinking the same thing.

Did you edit their faces a lot?  The lighting on her face is a little weird.
