Christmas Card Time, A Tiny Prints Giveaway!

What an exciting time of year.  The leaves are starting to blaze away with their fiery reds and radiant oranges.  The day skies are crystal clear and blue, the sun is perfectly warm and the nights are giving way to brilliant stars and a crisp cool air whispering that winter and Christmas is coming! I adore this time of year.  I love the stillness that you know will disappear too soon, replaced by the storm of travelers and shoppers and kids needing to go see Santa.

I realize this is a bit early to be talking about Christmas cards, but if you are indecisive with pictures and cards like me, it helps to get a head start.  

I'm excited to be able to help you get in the mood for fall and the 2012 Christmas season by giving one lucky follower a tiny prints gift certificate worth $50.  It can go towards anything except shipping, and cannot be combined with any other promos.

The winner of the Tiny Prints giveaway will be chosen on October 29, 2012 using

To be eligible you will need to:
  • Follow my blog
  • Comment on this post with your favorite Christmas memory
  • For extra entries:
    • Leave a comment telling me your favorite thing about this time of year.
    • Link your favorite tiny prints 2012 Christmas card
    • Leave a comment telling me your biggest Christmastime fail (did you fall into the fountain when trying to run from Santa?!)
Last year was my first year using tiny prints.  I splurged after seeing on someone's blog the perfect first Christmas card for us as brand new parents.  I knew exactly the picture I was going to use from Sammy's newborn shoot.  Had he been due a few weeks later, I would have probably made these are birth announcements too.  The extra money spent was well worth it.  I absolutely love tiny prints.  They have the best quality and excellent customer service and they proof all your cards for free (totally awesome considering my abnormal ability to have brain farts).

They also have a really great selection that includes Christmas cards with pictures, pet Christmas cards (you know we are the type to have chosen those pre Sammy), Christmas card birth announcements, even cards with space to write about your family's year.
Here are a few of my favorites from the Tiny Prints 2012 collection.  If you follow them on facebook, you will also be the first to get freebies and specials.  Last year I was able to get a personalized valentine's day card for free!  If you aren't on facebook, tiny prints has a special offers page.  Very cool!  They also have great pinterest boards with lots of party and crafting ideas.

* I have been compensated by Tiny Prints to review their 2012 Christmas Cards, however my opinion on their products is solely my own.

Oh You SO know how to get me to comment! hehe! So I follow your blog! Yay! And my favorite Christmas memory was unwrapping an ornament from a friend that said "Waiting for you" on one side and "Christmas 2011" on the other.

My favorite thing about this time of year is (sadly) caramel apple spice at Starbucks.

This is probably my favorite card because our family from out of town can frame the picture of Addie!

And my biggest Christmas fail: When I was little my dad dressed up as Santa, I fell for it hook line and sinker. UNTIL my neighborhood who Santa stopped by to see as well called out to Santa as he left "See ya later Mr. Owen!!!" I was DEVASTATED!

It's never too early to think about Christmas cards! In fact, we are taking our picture for our cards on Sunday.

I like this card:

I know I get a bit sick of it by Christmas, but my favorite thing is Christmas music everywhere!

I'm a new follower! My fave Christmas memory is decorating our tree with my siblings!

My Christmasfail was when I was about 12 years old - we had just opened all our presents when I realized we hadn't yet seen the stockings. So I yelled STOCKINGS and got up to run to see them, and promptly slipped and fell on my face on the linoleum floor. And yes, the moment was captured on video!

I love the smell of Christmas - pine, cinnamon, nutmeg! I love it!

Katy said...

And my last entry...I like the simplicity of this card:
Polka dots on the back and a great big photo on the front!

I'm a new follower, and my favorite Christmas memory is playing in bubbles of "snow" that Marines created in Okinawa, Japan.

My favorite part of this time of year: driving west to see the changing leaves, pick apples, and drink hot apple cider.

Biggest Christmastime fail: buying my mom a Catholic priest for her snow village--we're protestant!

My favorite christmas memory is waking up at the dawn with my siblings and jumping on our parents bed on christmas day.
