Christmas Cards

One reason I love this time of year is because usually every trip to the mailbox contains a good surprise. For a month, gone are the days of only receiving bills or junk mail, and instead, you get a great sampling of Christmas wishes from your friends.

Several years back, I found a wire Christmas tree on sale after Christmas at Target. It is great for displaying the cards that I receive.


Sadly, I wasn't in love with the card that I sent out this year.
Originally, I got it in my head that I was in some way, saving money.
That didn't happen. At all. I'm not the best with money.

Anyway, here is the outside of my card...


when you opened it, on the inside left was this...

and on the right was this...

I also got carried away and did a newsletter with photos which of course meant that I had to do color printing (and I don't have a color printer). After evaluating the cost, about half of the people on my list got an actual copy of the newsletter and the other half got one via e-mail. I was being cheap...errr... I mean going green!

I love opening th mail box in December. So fun. I loved your card. So cute. Thanks for putting my card on your tree. Fun to look at your tree of cards and see familiar faces.

I LOVED your card, Kara! AND, you are keeping me hydrated because I use my thermos everyday! I'm gonna blog about it because I just know it's already one of my favorite gifts this year! :)
