Take a right at the Halloween candy, and you might glimpse the festive Christmas decorations displayed in the stores. And, on TV, have you seen the Christmas commercial with the giant Target dog prancing through the town? That’s right, the holiday season is here. Whether you feel it’s a bit too early for the commercialization or not, it’s still never too early to start planning your holiday cards. Especially if you want a cool, unique card with a photo of your dog(s), cat(s) or other pets!

At the end of this post I’ll be offering a chance to win free personalized cards from Minted, valued at $65! I love receiving photo cards. We used to do them of the kids until they flew the nest. Now we do them of the dogs. Last year I think I received more dog Christmas cards than people ones.

So I love this collection of cards at Minted. Poking around, I discovered that Minted is a cool site–they have a blog with contests and prizes. And if you are into creativity and art, they even have a design challenge where you might become the next design genius!  But, what about the cards? Well, first of all they’re not only Christmas cards, but all seasonal holidays, plus baby, wedding, invitations and more. And you can personalize them, choose from many different styles, colors, even shapes! If you’re not sure what to pick, you can even upload your photo and try it in all sorts of different card templates.

Here are some of my favorites. Imagine them with your own pets’ pictures:

I like these cards because they’re so classy. You can even add some extras:

Interior photos and text

Or colors and patterns on the back!

I hope you look over Minted’s pet holiday cards, and find just the right one for you!

Now, on to the contest!
