Meet the Sullivans: It's THAT Time of Year Again! ($150 Minted.com Giveaway)

October 1, 2014

It's THAT Time of Year Again! ($150 Minted.com Giveaway)

Time to start thinking about our Christmas cards! Choosing, ordering and mailing out our family Christmas card is one of my favorite things each year. I might be a little premature in trying to decide on our card for this year, but as soon as I saw that Minted had debuted their Holiday and Christmas designs I couldn't help but begin to day dream about which one I would chose.

Here's what we've picked in year's past...

 2010

 2012

 2013

Although the design we chose is totally dependent on the style of our family photos, which we won't be taking for another month, I am hoping to pick something bright and cheerful this year. Something like one of these...

Vintage Holiday Wishes - I love the vintage look of the graphic on this card as well as the bright cheerful red they used for the letters.

Brilliant Holiday - Simple, yet still bright and fun!

So Festive - Classic, but still fun. Not sure that I like having out names so large, front center -- I would prefer for it to say a greeting there instead, but I'm sure the designers at Minted would be willing to work with us on that.

Bold Merry -Possibly the brightest and merriest of them all! Definitely high on my list with all the bright and bold colors!

Have I gotten you in the mood for Christmas cards? Or at least encouraged you to think about your own? Well, if so you're in luck, because Minted has so kindly offered to giveaway a $150 credit to their site to one of you! All you have to do is enter using the widget below!

Love Minted! We get our Christmas cards there every year. :) This year I'm hoping to go with a shimmery look with some metallic silver or gold!

Loooooove Minted so much! I already have a few options saved for our holiday cards this year. I was thinking about dwindling down our list this year to save some money, but when push comes to shove, I just love sending out holiday cards to everyone way too much!

Fear not. Our cards are picked out and in my shopping card (obvi minted). I can't tell if that makes me uber organized or way way too excited?
