Help me pick this year's Holiday Card!

I can't believe it's already the first of October!  For one thing, it means that I am officially 30!  But it also means that it is time to get started on all of my Holiday plans.  Blogwise, I have a pretty comprehensive gift guide coming up.  I have lots of great products to feature, and some awesome giveaways that you're not going to want to miss.  And here at home I have Halloween costumes to make, parties to plan, 20+ people to find gifts for & wrap, and the oh so important Christmas Card letter to write and mail out. 

One of my very favorite Holiday things to do is make our Christmas Cards.  We have a lot of family that we don't see very often, so photo cards are a must.  And I don't have the time to design them myself, so making them on an online site is also a necessity. 

Every year I scour the web looking for new and unique design ideas, that catch my attention.  This year I am really liking the selection of Minted Christmas cards.  The question is whether I should go for awkward, whimsical, or traditional.

For my awkward photo contender - This Believe Santa Card.

If I had a Santa Picture of anyone in my family that was as cute as this little girls, it would be a shoe in.  But for my card, I'm thinking I could probably get my husband to copy the pose, and then superimpose him with a picture of Santa.  It would either be epic, or incredibly lame.

Another one of my favorites is this Holiday Tree card. 

I love that there are 3 pictures (one for each child), but that the pictures are more whimsical in shape.  I also think that the white background makes the pictures pop.  Plus if I use pictures of my kids, it's literally a family tree.

And for my traditional choice, the Frosted Pinecone Card.

I love love love that there are 3 black and white pictures on the bottom, but that the main group picture has been frosted into the background.  We got family pictures a week or so ago, and I already know exactly what pictures I would use to personalize it.  It's simplistically adorable.

I would love to hear what all of you think!  Leave me a comment below and tell me which card you think is the most memorable - Awkward Santa and Husband Card, Whimsical Tree, or the Frosted Traditional.  The plan is to let all of you make the decision, so don't be shy!
