Christmas Cards

I'm working on making my own Christmas card this year. Of course I want to do the obligatory picture of Sean, Boomer and I, but I also wanted something more original for my Christmas card.

Here are a few things I've come up with so far:



( I used Smith instead of our real name for PERSEC reasons)









Do you design your own cards? Do you have someone personalize and design yours?

We are awful - we've NEVER sent out Christmas cards! I think I want to do it this year, now that we have/will have good pictures, but since we will be PCSing in December, we won't have a permanent return address. Decisions, decisions.

These are precious!! I so jealous that you designed these yourself. My favorite is the *Holly Jolly Christmas* :) I am so excited that me and hubby get to send out our first Christmas cards as a married couple this year.. even though he won't be here.. lol.

every year I say to hubs, "I'm making our own cards this year!" Then I realize that my mom is one of 12 so our extended family is HUGE and well, I haven't showered in peace in 5 years, trying to make 80 xmas cards is probably a futile effort.

I usually order them from tiny prints, since our family is so spread out I like to get a pic of all of us on there, much to hubs dismay.

All your options are cute! Good luck!

I've thought about making my own this year, but I'm not very crafty. I have such a huge family that I'd probably have to make 60 of them. I think that's whats holding me back!

Last year I started doing the christmas card thing, I took a picture and uploaded it to walmart.com and chose a modern background .. it turned out great!! I'm so UNcreative, I have to use sites like walmart.com or I don't know if Picnik.com has a card section where you can upload your photo.
He'll be home this year just in enough time to take a picture and send out cards!!! so excited.

I'm always wanting to make my own cards, but then I think about how many I'd have to whip up...not fun. But this year we're doing something special since hubby is deployed.

I love the idea of holiday cards, but I feel a little silly sending out cards when it's just the two of us and we're not even married. But someday, I know I'm going to be really excited to send them out!
