  3. avatar Jessica H reply

    I would include both my pups- a Puggle & an Aussie. And I’d add some blonde highlights- and my guy would have blonde hair!

  5. avatar Courtney Cross reply

    I would customize blank cards so I could us them for birthdays, thank-yous and much more. I would have myself (light brown short hair) my husband (strawberry blonde) and our black/brown dachshund.

  6. avatar Dara reply

    I would be brown and so would my hubby to be. I’d be in heels either reading or painting my nails and he’d be photographing something or have his camera around his neck. And of course, we have to add our little baby – our dog!

  7. avatar Robbie reply

    I would need my glasses of course, and probably just wearing a casual outfit like jeans and flip flops (because I pretty much live in that), and my future husband would have his bald head, and khaki pants, with a computer or camera. :)

  8. avatar Emily reply

    I would definitely have him much taller than me. And wearing cowboy boots (he ALWAYS weras cowboy boots… hehe :) ) I would put red hair on mine and dark hair on him. He’d be wearing jeans and a button-down plaid top and I would be wearing jeans and a purple shirt. :)

  9. avatar Mary reply

    My hair would be blonde, his brown. Also, he is a whole foot taller than me! Ha! And we don’t have pets so maybe we could put one of our many electronic devices instead?

    Also, if the giveaway ends on Dec 25…how does that work for sending out these adorable holiday cards?

    • avatar Emily reply

    My fiance and I both have brown hair. We are actually having a Christmas themed engagement party. This would be perfect for thank you cards to send out afterwards! I also follow iloveswmag on twitter @andreainguanti

  26. avatar Amy Strickland reply

    I love the card as the example for the opening page for Holiday Style. That would definitely be my customization- my boyfriend, our dogs, and me! Too cute! (And, I may even take a few pounds off myself, too!)

  27. avatar Amy Strickland reply

    I liked Ashley Brooke Designs on Facebook! Love her stuff!

  28. avatar Katie O’Keefe reply

    This is so cute! I would love this for Christmas! My husband and I are getting a puppy soon, and I’d definitely add Savannah (yes, good ole Southern name) to the card!

    • avatar Katie O’Keefe reply

      Other customizations would be that my husband Nate has light brown hair and green eyes, and I have dark auburn hair and blue eyes. Our new puppy is a yellow english lab so she would definitely have to be included. I love the emerald collection!

      I love her designs, and would love to do one of the other custom cards. My husband is a huge hunter and I am a former ballerina – complete opposites, but it works! Plus he’s 6’5″ and I’m 5’2″…would be interested to see what she came up with. :)

  29. avatar Katie O’Keefe reply

    Oh and of course I follow on Twitter…just tweeted about the cards @katieoselvidge

  30. avatar Katie O’Keefe reply

    Just liked her on Facebook too…my head is full of ideas! :)

  31. avatar Lindy reply

    I’d use the “plum” scheme and obviously change the hair color to red since I’m a redhead! We don’t have any pets, so I’d have to take out the little dog! These are so cute!!

  32. avatar Madelynne Miller reply

    I would pick the Ruby color scheme, two straight haired blondies with fair skin, signed Corey and Madelynne! So cute!

  38. avatar Britney reply

  39. avatar Katie O’Donovan reply

  40. avatar Elizabeth P. reply

    What cute cards! We would definitely have to include our chubby house cat Jasper.

  41. avatar Elizabeth P. reply

    Liked Ashley Brooke on FB!

  42. avatar Allyson L. reply

    We would have to include our Boston Terrier, Cooper, in his red bowtie. I like the party outfits that are in the samples on Ashley’s website. I would probably do the a red dress though. These would be so fun to send out!

  43. avatar Mandy V reply

    Love her work! My husband and I are newlyweds and just got a puppy. This would be so fun!

  44. avatar Mandy V. reply

  45. avatar Bridgett reply

  46. avatar Taylor J reply

    Ahh these are so cute! I’m going to have to bookmark this website. I would have to have the couple (light skin for both, light brown hair for me and black hair for the beau!) on the front in party gear with our little dachshund underfoot!

  47. avatar Jori reply

    I love the ruby scheme! I would have long brown hair and my husband would also have dark hair but it is really short. We would include our two dogs Weimaraner and English pointer and my husband would probably not be wearing a jacket. Think Ashleys work is great! Thank you for such a great giveaway!!

  48. avatar Taylor reply

    Ahh these are so cute! I’m going to have to bookmark this website. I would have to have the couple (light skin for both, light brown hair for me and black hair for the beau!) on the front in party gear with our little dachshund underfoot!

  49. avatar Susannah S reply

    Oh my gosh! So adorable!! I would have so much fun customizing these to our new family! I would definitely have to include our Wheaten Terrier puppy Beau in a matching beau-tie with my fiance Gardner:) Good thing for us the hair-color is already right on in the sample!

  51. avatar Susannah S reply

    I have a new “liked” page on facebook too! Hopefully my friends will see that I like Ashley Brooke Designs and check her out too!

  52. avatar Megan reply

    I’d customize the male and female with dark hair and light skin and would dress us up in a christmas outfit! We have a toy schnauzer that we would add in the picture and would put him in a christmas sweater or scarf! I LOVE this idea! They are absolutely adorable!

  53. avatar AshleyHH reply

    This is so neat!!! I went to the University of Central Florida with Ashley! We had a class or two together Freshman year and even though we lost touch, it is so cool to see her with such success!

    If I won, I would customize the card by: Hair – Light brown/blondish hair for both my boyfriend and me. We don’t have a pet so maybe we would leave that out. The skin colors on the example are perfect. The color of the dress? Maybe purple or blue. If I could pay extra I would put my bf and I in cowboy boots. We are both always in them!! And our names are Ryan (RC) and Ashley.

  57. avatar Brianna reply

    These are precious and I’ve been so caught up in wedding stationary that I haven’t even thought of holiday cards!

  58. avatar Emily Franklin reply

    I love the Tailored Holiday Collection! I would choose the Holiday Couple in the Plum scheme! My soon to be husband would have black hair, and I would have blonde! We don’t have a pet yet, although I’m pushing for a puppy, so if by luck I won him over then we would of course include our adorable new pet in our cards! Such a great giveaway! I’m loving learning of all these new stores and companies!

    These are just the cutest darned thing I ever did see!! On my card, there would be a boy and a girl (my fiance and I). He would be wearing cowboy boots (his trademark, haha) jeans and a button-down plaid shirt. He would have dark brown hair with his beautiful doughy brown eyes (hehe). He would be significantly taller and I, and I would have red hair, brown eyes, and jeans and a royal/kentucky wildcat blue (our wedding color :) ) blouse on.

  79. avatar Sarah reply

    I would definately add in our dog!

  80. avatar Taylor reply

    Also, following @iloveswmag!


  81. avatar Laura reply

    I really wouldn’t have to change anything about the card you have pictured, except we don’t have a puppy :( Hopefully soon though!

  82. avatar Kristi reply

    All of her designs are adorable but my favorite is the Holiday Couple in the plum scheme. I’d dress him down a little…from the suit to khaki slacks and a button down. He’d have strawberry blonde hair and I’d have brown. I love the purple dress (its our wedding color)! We’d also include our puppy that we adopted from a rescue earlier this year. This is a great giveaway!

  83. avatar Melissa W. reply

    I love the tailored holiday couple in the ruby color scheme. Both of us would have brown hair. If I could have glasses, that would be great. Oh and maybe my hair pulled up:)

  84. avatar Dana Laymon reply

    it would include me, my husband, and our golden retriever!

  85. avatar Dana Laymon reply
