I need them just because I LOVE them! :)

Cannon Family said...

Dear Sara,

I NEED these because you took the best pics of our little sweety and we need to show her off to all of our family for Christmas! AND, half of our family live in the happenin' Winnemucca, and if you haven't been (you probably haven't) YOU will be dying to visit there and take all of Lydia's cousins pictures once they see the pictures of Lydia! So really it's for you!...(You'll have to charge an extra huge trip fee since it the most boring drive you may ever take!) I will definitely add this link to my blog. I'v ebeen braggin' you up already!

Campbell said...

My family lives in Europe and they don't get to see our family much. So I need some cute christmas cards where I can put a picture in, so they can what we look like now.

Tiffani said...

I deserve them because I am the first commenter and I am the bestest friend/old roomie in the universe and by far the coolest chick you know. :)

Heather said...

Wow I am the first one to enter! So I really need these because I am such a wanna be photographer in Denver and suck at all the computer stuff! Thank you so much- I love your work! I am going to put a link on my blog as well!

Heather said...

I just left a comment and came back to do my link and it says no comments, so I am trying again! This is why I need to win these because I stink at the computer! So please pick me!

Rachel said...

Hi Sara,
I need these card templates because I LOVE THEM! I'm starting to do photography for clients and wow would this help!!! I'm also the first to comment, so maybe I'm the most excited. Are you convinced yet?

Tuckett and Kaesy said...

Because I have the sweetest baby with the most darling blue eyes and the longest eyelashes on earth. She's five months old and I've STILL never sent anyone an announcement about her. Christmas cards this cute would make up for it!

treehugger said...

I need them because I can't get no stinkin' cute pics of my kids or my family. Even though I have been to a professional photographer (Not Sara) they have all seriously reeked, and it's really hard to get any of my children to sit still and behave. At any rate, maybe these cute cards will outshine the humdrum homemade pics that I take and make for really cute Christmas cards and what not. Yes that is why I need them. Sara- you should call me. I am in desperate need of some photo help.

The Forney Four said...

Don't listen to any of these people. Seriously, listen to me and no one else. This is why:

1) I am your sister and you love me.
2) My kids are gorgeous and you're their Aunty Saree and you owe it to the world to share their beauty.
3.) Payback to your poor older sister for all the times you kicked me when we were 'little.' and said you couldn't stop.
4.) I'm your sister.
5.) I'll send you one in the mail for your christmas card.

there are many more reasons but mostly because I'm your sister and I linked you on my blog and you secretly want to give them to me but you made up this contest so that no one would get their feelings hurt.

Jess said...

Because I am in SERIOUS need of some cute cards for Christmas. Seriously. I had no idea you designed. They are beautiful! Oh- and the pics Angie took of you guys were amazing. As always. I want to be like you girls. :)

Lauren said...

I need these because I have spent hours TRYING to make a card and nothing is even close to being as cute as your cards. I haven't actually gotten my kids pictures taken yet, so if I have a cute card, maybe I will be inspired to get them taken so I can put it in your cute templates :)

HEATHER said...

Wow i'm not the first Heather to leave a comment lol! They are simply BEAUTIFUL and I NEED to, GOTTA HAVE THEM!!!! Love the colors! I'm an aspiring photographer and would love to have these for clients!

Cascio Photography said...

I have to have these! I am always staring at these with big puppy eyes wishing I could have them or the talent to make them!! And since I have neither right now I would LOVE the chance to WIN THEM!!! AHHHHH! You know we are totally BFF's now ;) so how can you resist sending em my way?! Plus I want to send something cute!!! And I want them for some freakin lucky clients of mine to get one of these puppies too! You are awesome! I am totally putting up a link to this for those EXTRA entries :)

Ally Cox said...

Sara,

I need these darling cards so bad because most of my family live out of state and every year I send them a Christmas card. Each year I try and out-do the card from the past year and I think these would do just the trick. Especially if we put a picture of our sweet Caden that you have taken many pictures of. I also feel I deserve them because I have had your website and blog posted on my blog since the day I created it, I also brag to you to everyone I know and in-turn have brought you some business! :-) I think you are amazing at what you do and I really hope you pick me so I can brag to more of my friends and family about how wonderful you are!

Marissa Vargason said...

Sara!!! What an awesome giveaway!!! Girl you ROCK!!! Okay I need these because I have three youngins, not only am I a wife and mother but Im a photographer as well! I need them because between cooking, cleaning, laundry, homework and loving my family I have no time to do any cards!!!! Plus these rock!!! and I really would like to offer something special...okay linking away!

KRISTIE said...

I need these because they are just so fab! I don't even think I could pick a favorite out of these, I might have to make all of them and send out different cards to different people :)
I am so putting a link up for your contest, because I need the extra chances to win!!
How fun of you to do this!!

Melissa Papaj said...

I would love to win these because I have no idea how to make something so AWESOME! Nice work!

Deb-t said...

Well hello! You don't know me but I couldn't resist checking out your cute page. Anyway, I love your work and I'd love to enter your clever little competition! I don't have all that great a story other than I'm in the Primary Presidency for my ward in my church and I am in charge of Sharing Time the entire month and I just know I won't be able to do anything cute or fancy with my Christmas cards this year! That was a very long run-on sentence.... Either way, I think you are a very talented person!
-Debbie

Anna Marie Photography said...

I NEED these because they are so pretty, creative, and better than anything else I have come up with so far, and well, I NEED them! Oh, I already said that. Seriously, they are awesome, and I really admire your creativeness!

Off to add your link to my blog!

Brekke Felt said...

I was sitting at home proofing and editing. My rear is numb from sitting for so long and my vision is becoming blurry from staring at photoshop for hours without an end in sight.
In the background I could hear my son playing World of Warcraft. “Mom! The bad guy is bonking me! Help!” He yells. My daughter is doing crafts on the table and creating a mess too large for professionals to handle and singing “Chika Chika Boom Boom” at the top of her lungs. In comes my two year old, his face and hands are covered in chocolate and something yellow…. corn meal maybe? He is missing one shoe and one sock and his legs are wet up to his knees. I am not sure where he has been, but the bathroom door is open and the water is slowing beginning to flow over the edge of the bowl and I begin a guess at where that shoe and sock are. Just then the phone rings, it’s my husband, he will be working late so the dinner I spent an hour and a half cooking will be cold by the time he gets home. I stare at the pile of laundry 4 feet high on the bed, and think about the mountain of dishes soaking in the sink. As I get up I trip over the dog, sprawled on the floor in the middle of the hall. She glances at me and gives me a look for interrupting her lazy time. I walk to the mirror. It’s Four o’ clock in the afternoon and I am still in my pajamas and my hair is not brushed. Staring back at myself I have only one thought…. I really need Sarah’s “This Christmas” Holiday Card Templates.

Ally Cox said...

So I posted a comment last night but it didn't seem to work so here I go again with why I think I should win these holiday cards! I have a lot of family that live out of state and every year I send all of them a Christmas card. Well, each year I try to out-do the card from the year before and I think these are so cute that they would do just the trick. Especially if I put a picture of our angel Caden on them (which thanks to you we have many adorable pictures to choose from!) Also, I think I deserve them because not only have I had you take our pictures twice and plan on having you take our pictures forever I constantly brag about you to all my friends and family which has brought you more business! :-) Also, I have had your website and blog on my blog since day 1! I would love these and would feel super grateful if you picked me!

Nicole B. said...

Ok, I so desperately need these and here is why!!!! In three weeks I am moving, a move I have been dreading for over a year now might I add, I have clients out the wozoo(so not even a word) wanting christmas cards and I have to have all my client orders in by November 17th. NOw, this would not be such a big deal if I would have been on the ball and designed my holiday cards oh a month ago but now it has become a problem because I have come up with nothing and it is the eleventh hour so to speak. I am beyond desperate and this DANG CUTE set would certainly be a life saver for me right now!

Carrie said...

I would absolutely love to win these! My husband is incredibly good at comuter design and could make beautiful templates if he could ever get around to it. However, he is incredibly busy with work, providing for our family, and constantly helping me out with our 6-month-old baby girl, Lauren. If I could win these, it would take one thing off his list that he needs to do. So in reality, I really want to win these for him so he has one less thing to worry about. Plus- we have been married for 7 years and have never sent out Christmas cards! (Sad, I know) I desperately want to send some out this year, because it is our baby's 1st Christmas. I also want everyone to see what beautiful photos you took of her (One of which is #6 on your templates...isn't she cute??) Even if I don't win, I think you are the best photographer ever, and I can't wait to have you photograph us again next year! Thanks!

Nicole B. said...

Ok, I am in DESPERATE need of these cards let me explain why!!!!! In three weeks time I will be moving, a move I have been dreading for over a year now. I am frantic to get all my current sessions finished up and ordered and delivered before I have to move. I may not be so frantic if I had designed some holiday cards oh lets say a month ago, but between trying to sell our house and hunt for a new house it just did not get done. Now my clients are wanting holiday cards I am swamped and feeling very overwhelmed at having to design cards for them right now. So, I am DESPERATE and you have no idea how these ADORABLE cards would help me out and lessen my stress level at the current time SOOOOOO much!!!!! PLEASE

Ashley Julian said...

Hi Sara! Okay so I really NEED these 'cause I need to get my business off the GROUND! I just moved to this new, small town and there's this old dude who's been doing photography here for YEARS. I need something that will make me STAND OUT and win me some beautiful, fun, young families. I've never done holiday cards before so this would be a huge step for me :) I would buy the templates anyway but I'm barefoot, pregnant and BROKE...until January...hopefully.

REally, though...awesome of you giveway one away. You do GREAT work...no lyin'!

Everlasting Images said...

Wow! So I was totally gonna enter but I can't think of a dang creative thing to say. Soooo, here's what I'm gonna do. As your little assistant poo ;) HAHA, I have read all these and I want to VOTE for a winner! You asked for something creative and I see a bunch of the same stuff, Sara you are so great Sara you are so wonderful blah blah (lol j/k) But of course as usual your sissy poo Camille is hillarious and whoever Brekke is she totally makes you laugh, is she spying on me or talking about herself? Hmmm one will never know! So there ya go, I think they were creative in their contest entry! Have fun deciding!!

Shawn and Lily said...

I NEED THESE BECAUSE I absolutely suck at picking holiday cards in the store and I'm a creative person and would love messing with these on my comp. besides.....I refered a client to you (Vegas shoot) and I don't even know you chic! :) Your photo's are flippin' amazing!

Laurel E. Riffey said...

Are you ready??? I need these b/c I am trying to get my photography business up and running and these would be an awesome start for the holidays and my clients! Need more of a reason??? My husband lost his job at Lehman Brothers and of course (like everyone else) we have to watch our pennies. Looks like I am the bread winner right now and need to watch where I spend my money... so winning them would be GREAT! They are absolutely beautiful! Not sure how I stumbled upon your blog but I have enjoyed "stalking" it! LOL! Putting up a link on my blog!

Lisa said...

I need them because I am new in the business!

Paige said...

Um, these are FABULOUS! I love all of them.. so I'd love to win. If I don't - I guess I will buy them. :) So glad I found your link on another site because you take pics of my cousin's baby girl Quinn all the time & she is so freakin' cute & the pics are gorgeous! Erin told me your name & of course I forgot. So fun to find you. Anyway - love your work. :)

Kimberly Robinson said...

I NEED these because they are beautiful!!!!!!!!!

Lauren said...

I linked you on my side bar. Can I have 5 extra entries please? Thank you!

Jean Smith Photography said...

i haven't even read any of the other comments, but i absolutely need these because i completely lack the creativity in every way to produce something so freaking cute. simple as that!

Stacy Mike and Thalia Talbot said...

Sara,
I need these because my hubby is coming out of the closet that he is gay and wants to do it in style. I want to help make this happen and your cute templates are just what we need. (: Hee hee I just love them and you gotta know you are good at what you do so....
puh-lease? (:

Tim and Nancy said...

First reason I have the cutest 3 month old baby that I have to send pictures of for the holidays. Second I am using the power of the secret to think "I can win I can win & third They are too pretty not to want to win. Nancy

Dave.Loni.Peyton.Ava said...

Those are dang cute, I could sure use them to show off my dang cute family! Plus I'm out of work right now, so to get them for free would be even better!!

Jess said...

...because I look at them a few times a week wishing I could offer them to my clients. (NO LIE) I am new to the photography world and would love to have cards to offer, but don't know that it is realistically feasible at this point. Here's to wishing, and hoping!!! oh, and I will for sure put a link up. Anything else I can do to get more brownie points? =)

gina bina said...

Jessie O'Neal Photography needs to win these! And she needs them. Trust me, she needs them1

gibkidsmom said...

Sara- Those templates are fabulous and your pictures are AMAZING! I would like to win the templates because I want to help my daughter do really cool Christmas cards. This is their first Christmas married and in their own place. This would be the PERFECT way to send greetings to all her loved ones.

spanki said...

oh my... i almost missed it! well, i am here by the hair on my chinney chin chin... (if i have hair on my chin, please...some one tell me) well, i have had a terrible time getting any kind of business started, i have moved to a new town and would love nothing more to be able to become a photographer, but... all kinds of obstacles. so, winning these cards would make my week! i love to scrapbook and this is the best of both worlds, paper and pictures!! love them!! oh, my fingers are crossed!!! and off i go to post about it on my blog... hey i will take the help, even if i am sliding in last minute....

Vicki said...

I love your templates and think your contest idea is great... I was just thinking I should do Christmas Cards this year since it is our first in year in 5 back in the state, this will make it much easier. (we thought it was too expensive to send Christmas cards with overseas postage).
I will put a link on my blog..

Diana said...

They are fantastic!!! So I would LOVE to have them. Please pick me!!!

Jen F. said...

wow, so I'm clearly not your sister and I'm not in the primary presidency and I have no family in Europe. So my chances of winning are getting slimmer by the second. BUT I am a photographer, I do spend way too much time on the computer (neglecting my four boys tonight) and I am so burned out on designing christmas cards. I NEED your gorgeous designs so I can go cuddle with my kids in bed and read them stories and go to sleep knowing that I don't have to make one more christmas card this year!! Thanks!!

gdove said...

I need these because... they are a really cool creation

Jinksee said...

I need these because....I'm Poor! :D Hee hee.. Ok, also, because I don't have a clue how to make my own while feeding a baby, doing the dishes, driving my other kids to school, laundry, making dinner, cleaning toilets, changing diapers, and washing windows all at the same time. :D

Jeanette said...

Sara, I am just dipping my feet into photography and am loving it! I love your photographs, they are beautiful. I would love these templetes because first they are fabulous, and second they would be great because I took a super cute pic of my kids and would love to use one for my own personal card. I would also love to offer these to the few family & friends I've photographed- all love and credit going to you of course!

Heather York said...

You are an amazing photographer and beyond talented. I love all of your images and designs!!! LOVE the Christams cards!!

Staci said...

So sad I missed this. I needed them because I'm just too lazy at the moment to do my own and I know it will only get worse with the hecticness of the holidays. Darn!
