Holiday Card Roundup {$100 Minted Credit Giveaway}

We are officially one month away from Christmas! We haven't yet replaced our pumpkins and turkeys for pine cones and garland but we have picked out our holiday card! One of my favorite holiday traditions is sending out {and receiving} Christmas cards in the mail. Each year I get more and more excited as the cards pour into our mailbox. I absolutely love watching all of the exciting changes in my friends and family's lives each year - from engagement pictures to babies, nothing makes me happier than receiving a happy moment captured in the lives of those closest to us! 

This year we decided to go with Minted for our holiday card. We've used Minted many times for all sorts of paper needs and have always been impressed. In my opinion, Minted truly offers the best designs, lots of customizable options, high quality paper, recipient addressing options {usually free during promotions}, awesome customer service and the super convenient "find it fast" feature which allows you to insert your photo into all of the cards at once for easy shopping.

Here are some of my favorite designs this year, one of which I already have chosen for our Christmas card...
Nonchalant
 A Wonderful Life
All Together Now
Be Merry Script
Best Year Ever
Merrily
Wishing You Joy
Watercolor Merry and Bright
Christmas Love
A Merry Little Christmas
But the best news? Minted has graciously offered to give one lucky reader a $100 credit! To enter, use the rafflecopter below. Good luck!

  52. I have a few I'll admit - but there is something about sending out Christmas cards that I love. Writing each one to the families you love and miss. I usually write my cards with a mug of hot chocolate, curled up in front of the TV watching a Christmas special. Elf is one of my favorites but hands down our family Christmas movie is White Christmas.

    Happy holidays!
