It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!




We are putting together the Christmas cards this year and like so many hand-made projects...this one has certainly spiraled out of control budget-wise. What I may have saved by designing it myself was quickly made up by the frequent trips to Paper Source for card stock and the perfect shade of red envelopes, trips to the post office for stamps and CVS photo printing. Still, I am excited about how they turned out and I included a cute picture of H along with it. We are sending out about 60-70 cards this year which I thought was a lot until I saw how many people some other people send to! How many cards do you all send out?

Your little man is asbolutely adorable!!! And those Christmas cards... I love it! I am the same way - the cards always snowball into a much more time consuming and expensive ordeal.

Do you know how to do those cuttings? I may hit you up for one for A.

None. But that is the best damn logo/graphic on a Christmas card ever. Nice work.

PS: Do you think you'll have time to post a tutorial? I'm trying to learn how to be more crafty like that :)

Lovely card! How did you make the front of it? I took the easy route this year and got a photo card made up on tinyprints with one of our wedding pictures.

Just checking in myself...I have been a bad blogger but I am launching back in full force this year...trying to set time limits though because I can get caught up all night long reading blogs and commenting!!!

Your little man is precious....your cards are perfection...hoping your holidays were merry and bright!!!
