Every year I try to come up with a cute saying for our Christmas cards. Most recently, I've been using lines from Christmas songs or poems. I think it's a cute tradition and we always have fun trying to match a phrase with the pictures. This year I used two pictures (couldn't decide).

The outside of the card has this pic:

and the inside has this one:

We decided to go with:

"Have a Holly, Jolly Christmas!"

Warm wishes and good cheer this holiday season

The Sippycups

Last year we went with:

"Laughing all the way!"

and the year before that we did:

"While visions of sugarplums danced in their heads" (great if you're using a picture of a sleeping baby or sleeping kids"

I also love:

"Tiny Tots with their eyes all aglow"

"Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree"

"It's Beginning to Look a lit like Christmas"

"Have yourself a merry little Christmas"

"Santa Claus is coming to town"

"May your Christmas be merry and bright"

"You'd better not pout"

"All is calm, all is bright!" (also great for a sleeping baby picture)

"Tis the season to be Jolly"

Whatever you decide on...have fun!

Super cute, you are very creative. I've really enjoyed your blog. I just happened to come across it a few months ago!

What a great idea! We received a card with "naughty" and then "nice" with matching pictures of the kids. I thought that was cute, too. Also, a picture of the kids with no front teeth and the caption" all I want for Christmas...". Merry, merry!

These are cute. I was trying to find something a little different this year too, but I'm afraid I wasn't very creative. lol
Their picture is adorable!

My friend just did Naughty? or NIce? I love that. She has twins and has a devilish pic on the card. I like all is calm all is bright!
