Our Christmas Cards

I know I've already shown these, but today I am linking up with Kelly, so I'm going to show them again! :)

I ordered our cards from Shutterfly, and absoltuely LOVED them! I couldn't decide on just one design, so I ordered two, and randomly sent them out. I knew that I wanted to use wedding pictures on them because, well, we spent way too much money NOT to use them! ;)

Sorry I had to make them ugly and blur out our names! I just love seeing everyone's different Christmas cards! We have all the ones we have received on a new bulletin board, and I am thinking about leaving them up AFTER Christmas! They look so pretty!
