**FREE CHRISTMAS CARDS FOR ANYONE WITH A BLOG**
Help me get the word out and receive a FREE digital file containing a custom Christmas card!!

Don't live in Utah? Or just don't need pictures taken? That's okay, you can still benefit from this offer. All you have to do is post on your blog and tell a little bit about what I am offering. Make sure you put a link to my blog in the post. Then leave me a comment telling me that you did it and I will get started on your Christmas card. I will be emailing the files to those who participate so you can have them printed anywhere you like. Email me the picture(s) you would like to use and start looking around for ideas of what you want your card to look like. I will let you know if it is something I can make or not. You choose colors, font, etc.

Suzy...
you are so cute! i would love to have pictures taken when you come to Salt Lake. i'll think about what i could do. i'm putting you on my blog. you guys need to move up here girl!

Aubrey said...

Hey Suzy! Don't even worry about the house thing. I can totally relate having 2 busy kids myself. Time slips away in a flash! Thanks for leaving me a comment. I will add you to mine as well. If you want to live in Herriman - we could be neighbors!!! Did Joey go to the Salt Lake Parade of Homes? I swear I saw him there but he wasn't with you so I didn't say anything to him. I would love to do Christmas cards with you - my kids are TERRIBLE at pictures, but I am going to check out some of those dates. I'll be in touch with you . . .Thanks!!

Hi Suzy, The rag quilt is so easy. If you just google search how to make a rag quilt it gives pretty clear instructions. I just used flannel on both sides and no batting. You should give it a try.

Randi and Jackson said...

Jackson's mom said she wants you to take our (their) family pictures at the end of Novemeber, I don't know where though she wants snow, Your Christmas cards are so cute, is that lame if me and Jackson send out Christmas cards??? Maybe we can borrow someones dog or baby.

I would love you to take my families picture. I'v always wanted a really cute fall picture. I would have to talk Ryan into it though he hates pictures. Would you be interested in coming down my way? I'll talk to Ryan and you let me know if you possibly work it out. Okay did I miss something? Are you moving to Salt Lake?

Mindy said...

Suzy....what time do you think you will be in St. George on the 1st? I would love to do pics but would need to see if I can work it into the work/school schedule. Let me know if you have any idea and I'll talk to my people and get back to you! Thanks!

Kara Jayne said...

suzy - i found you from everything pink kristi!! i am so excited about your offer of free digital cards. i put a post about it on my blog. i'd love to benefit from the offer. thank you so much. let me know where to email you a picture. my email is in my profile!!

Chris said...

Suzy,
Thank you for the nice offer. I post your information on my blog. Last year I did a card with all of my seminary students and I would like to do something like that again. I am single and I don't have children so the caption on the Christmas card said, "Merry Christmas from my early morning family to your family." My class this year wants to participate again so I will get busy and take some pictures. (I would like a new caption but I haven't come up with one.) Thanks again!!!

Lindsey said...

I wish I was going to be in SLC at that time! But, I am STILL interested in some christmas cards, so, I posted you on my blog! :)

sadleir said...

Suzy - Hey there! I am out in San Diego, but I posted you on my blog and I will send you a family shot once we get them taken!
Thanks! Cute blog!

Sarah said...

Suzy! i would love for you to take my kids' pictures on the 17th or 18th of October, but I have no money. I'm totally going to blog about you though, not because I want free stuff or whatever, but because you take some of the best pics I've ever seen. Seriously, do everyone else's cards before you even think about doing mine because I probably will forget to print them and then it will be wasted time and effort and I just don't like to waste time and effort. Money on the other hand is very wasteable.

Autumn said...

I so wished I lived in Utah so you could take my family pictures!

I found you from Everythings Pink & I blogged about you at my blog~

Do you think I could do a fall card instead of a christmas card or is that a dumb idea?

Ashley said...

We just had our pics taken for Christmas cards. Plus I don't live in UT but I would love a design for a file.

Thanks for a great offer. I just emailed you too.

Meredith said...

Suzy...what a generous offer, you are incredibly talented and I appreciate your willingness to share that with others. I live in Texas but I posted about you on my blog. I'm really wishing that I lived in Utah right now so that you could take our family picutres. I don't have our "Holiday" picture yet but let me know where I need to send it when we get that done.

Thanks again!

Well, I have a blog but don't live in Utah... the Christmas Cards are adorable... do you mean you will create a custom Christmas Card with a picture I take? I will post your link on my blog this week!!

Jenn said...

I will publicize for you all year!!!! You are so awesome for doing this.

I don't live in Utah, but would love to take you up on your offer for "creating" part.

Do you know the can of worms you just opened?

I've been dreaming about my Christmas cards for months, now maybe it can work!

Thank you so much. I'll get you up and posted by tomorrow. (I'll leave you on my sidebar all year.)

Chris said...

What a great thing. I read about this on Kristi's blog, Everything is Pink. Thought I would take a look. I am on the East Coast so unfortunatly can't do any of those sittings, but would love the card file. I will post about this on my blog. No shots for Christmas yet, but I will be sure to get them.
Great idea. www.rikerhome.blogspot.com

Nikki Hogsed said...

You are so generous! I just posted about your offer on my blog. I will send you my family picture and ideas soon. Wish I lived close, I would definately schedule a session. THANKS!!

Tennessee Happenings said...

Hey,
I posted a link on my blog. How soon do you need the file? My husband and I are going to the Smoky Mountains next week and I think we will take our picture there. Where do I send it to?

Courtney said...

Suzy, I just mentioned your freebie on my blog. Good luck. You are so generous. Courtney

Kim and Xochitl Clara said...

What a kind and sweet thing to offer! I am going to post your link immediately! I only wish you lived closer because your pictures are gorgeous and capture the innocence and beauty of childhood perfectly!

Janet and Maya said...

How fun! I posted your info on my blog - www.mayasheartsong.blogspot.com

We haven't taken our photo yet, but my husband and I are going to dress as a magician and his assistant, our daughter will be a bunny coming out of his hat. I'd like the message to say something like, "have a magical Christmas". Could you do something for us? Can you do it so I can just drop the photo in later? Thanks so much, this is cool! I wish I lived closer for you to take the photo, but we're far, far away in Indiana!

Greetings from the eastcoast! I found your wonderful blog while "blog hopping" and I LOVE your work. I just created a post about your awesome offer on my blog. highfamily4.blogspot.com

I haven't taken pics of the kiddies yet for the holidays (x-mas is my FAVORITE holiday and I am so excited to have custom made cards this year!!)...when is the latest that you would like/need the picture(s) and design/information by?

Thank you, thank you for doing such a wonderful and caring thing! Oh and just like everyone else, I wish PA was closer to UT so you could do my family photos as well. :)

I posted your offer for Christmas Cards on My Blog. I LOVE photo cards. I'm always irritated when I get cards without pictures on them. As soon as we take our Christmas shots i'll send them your way. When do you need them by?

I'm not sure if my previous comment went through - my internet froze.

I'm a new reader to your blog and I'd love to help you spread the word! I posted a tidbit on my blog as well. How soon do you need the file? I will be using a newborn photo of my son but I've still got a few weeks until he is born. I'm thinking I could get you photo at the end of October. Will that be alright?

the mccollums... said...

Suzy, I saw your post on another friend's blog...I would love to have a digital creation! My husband and I are moving to Africa this coming summer so perhaps I can also ask you (after the holidays) for custom created notecards/moving cards? In light of our big move to Africa, I wanted this Christmas greeting to our family and friends to be extra special! I will email you soon with the pic and ideas....I posted your offer on my blog for my readers to take part in! Bless your work!!
