this is not an ordinary Christmas card


No red and greens! Gasp!

No dress clothes? The horror!

No parents? That's new!

But you know what? I love it anyway!

Do you make your own cards too? Leave me a comment and a link to your card if you posted it - I'd love to stop by and see it!

  3. I love it.

    I have made my own the past few years but didn't do a darn thing this year. I still need to get a birth announcement made though.

  6. I make our holiday cards each year and love that despite the huge time commitment, I know that others appreciate the time I spent making them. I tend to stay away from photos since we can only send out so many pics of the dog.

    Here's our 2009 holiday card:

  7. I "made" mine, meaning I picked out the card and clicked and dragged (drug?) the picture into it, and picked out the font. I didn't post it on my blog because it has our real names on it (but you saw it), but the picture I used is in this post:

    No red or green or dress clothes for us either!

    LOVE your card!!

    P.S.-- I loved the 25 Days of Ornaments. I read through a feed reader so I apologize for not commenting. I may steal your idea next year-- if that's okay. I adore ornaments and the stories behind them.

  14. I LOVE this card!!! It's way better than a posed one in Christmas clothes, I think! (Which is what I did -- but that's why I don't get paid to design things!)
