I normally wait until the laaaaaast minute to order Christmas cards. I usually wait until it’s too late to actually get them into my friends and families’s homes before Christmas. But this holiday season, I did it all in one day. Took pictures, designed the card in Photoshop Elements and sent it off to be printed.
And it arrived via UPS around 8:30 Monday night. I didn’t open the box until Tuesday morning due to the fact that we have some seriously nasty germs floating around right now. I’m still keeping the card box closed and away from the germ-meisters for a few more days.
But I did let Emma have one to photograph …
And I just have to say … I LOVE IT!! I love how it turned out, I love how thick it is [it's printed on some serious cardstock], I love the rounded edges, I love everything.
Someone asked why Ken and I are never on our cards, and the answer is simple. Neither of us like having our picture taken. At all. Maybe I’ll actually hire someone to take our pictures next year once our family is complete?
Anyway, as you can see, I used the swing pictures on the sides and then this as the main image …
I love that Lucy has her fingers in her mouth, because that is SO Lucy.
Since I can’t send a card to every one of my 800+ readers, consider this your card. Merry Christmas!
*I paid for everything out of my own pocket. I just wanted to share the who and what and where because I am so so pleased with the overall product.
