Dec 12

Can you believe it is mid December already? I think I say this daily at this point in my life but.... time is just flying past at warp speed. The number one thing on my to do list this weekend is Christmas cards. How are you guys doing? Do you use store bought carda? Make your own? Write a Chrismtas letter? I'd love to hear!

We usually do a letter every few years. I'm not sure if this will be a letter year or not. I always do a picture/card of the kids. It is really the only time I ever digi-scrap. I always find a really cute free kit somewhere on-line to download. Then I open a 4" x 6" blank document in Photoshop and create my own card with it. I would share past ones but my computer crashed and I lost everything from the past 2 years ( go back up everything NOW!!!!). I will try to post this years once I have it done.

My mom did something really cute this year ( How lucky am I that my mom and I share a love for this hobby of ours) She made her Christmas card and letter all on the same sheet. She used 8.5 x 11 cardstock and just printed her letter on one side, folded the card in thirds and decorated the front side just like you would a card and then hand wrote a greeting inside. I will take a picture and post it soon.

I love how the Holidays let us catch up with those friends that we only hear from this time of year.

  1. This is the first year I have made my own Christmas cards and I am still working on them. This year really has flown by.
