Trying my hardest to be cool, I'm pretty sure I responded by saying "Psssh. Nooo! Yeah right" but deep down inside I probably thought "Oooh...wouldn't that be super cute, especially with a corgi puppy." (I was a closet Martha Stewart reader back then. I have no shame anymore.)
The fact that someone said that in 2006 has prevented me from putting our photo on any holiday card. Seriously. Well, time to give in, because this year I want to send out cards and we're going to have a photo of us on it. And I will not be ashamed!
I'm a fan of tinyprints.com, which has a lot of customizable cards from some really talented designers (including one of my favorites, Night Owl Paper Goods!) It makes the work a whole lot easier for me, especially after all of the wedding paper goods I designed.
I ignored anything resembling work or school tonight to play with all of my options. Here are some of my favorites.

Do you send holiday cards? What do you like to use?
