Thankfully I finished my Christmas shopping the first week in December because the rest of the month sped up leaving no time for shopping. I didn't get as much baking done as I had hoped to either, but we have way more sugar and carbs during this time of year than we need anyway.
Because I did not take time to post anything the last few weeks, I am just now getting around to showing you the cards I made and sent out this year. I wanted to include a family photo that we took this past summer so I made long cards rather than the A2 I usually send out.
Apparently I did not take a picture of the inside but what I did was stamp a Christmas Tree( Our Daily Bread) on the right side of an insert with our Christmas letter on the left side.
I had to cut an inch off the top of the photo so it would fit inside the card but there was plenty of sky so the pic still looked good. Here is the photo I used (before cutting) - all 28 of us. As you can see, cutting off some of the top wasn't a big deal. In fact, I think it looked better.
I'm looking forward to making some thank you cards and then on to Valentines. As you can see from the photo, I have a lot to make!
