LAST MINUTE Christmas Photo Card Deal

I am seriously the world's BEST procrastinator! I have been planning to create a photo Christmas card for us to send for quite a while. I totally missed all of the great photo card deals that came around earlier this month. I tried to post some of them for you, especially the freebie ones. But I didn't get my pictures ready in time to get our cards at those killer prices. Rats!

I spent some time last night designing a 4x8 photo card that I could upload somewhere. I was thinking VistaPrint, because I'd used them for other things in the past. I'm always pleased with their work. So I uploaded my picture and found that their cards were 50% off. Hmm... Not bad!

I got all the way through my project and realized that the 7-day shipping wouldn't get the cards here in time for me to mail them. (Did I mention that I'm a PRO procrastinator?) Rush shipping would be $28.00. ***GULP*** I honestly thought that my not doing this earlier was going to either cost us $28 extra in shipping or that I just wouldn't order the cards.

I saved my picture file and decided to hunt around for a better deal today. I opened my email at lunchtime today, and I found an amazing email message from VistaPrint. They were offering a one-day deal where Christmas cards were all 50% off AND you got FREE 3-day shipping. I couldn't get mine ordered fast enough! I got 70 photo cards -- at the last minute -- for $15. Wow! Can I just tell you what a blessing that was?

If you are a fellow procrastinator, you can still take advantage of this deal through the end of today (Monday 12/14) HERE. The email that I got said that the deal was good today only, so I'm assuming that means until midnight!
