Good Morning!

Today, I'm going to show you our Personalized Christmas Card
we're sending out this year!

One year, we sent out a photo of Dan & myself on a magnet for the fridge
to our special friends (that'd be the ones who actually wanted a photo of us on their fridge looking at them everyday!)

This year, I decided not to make "us" such a permanent fixture in other
people's homes.  Wasn't that nice of me?  hahahaha!

So, here it is......
The idea came to me because....I have a picture frame right at my front door that holds a 4x6 photo and I change it up with the seasons/occasions by putting
either a photo or a particularly funny card in it.
This year, I was playing with Picnik and did this to one of our photos for the frame...
so it's a photo as well as being particularly funny!
Then, I thought....hey, what a fun way to personalize a card for others?!

I don't think I have to give you a tutorial on this because it's glaringly obvious
how I did it.  But, I'll tell you the supplies I used.

Folded Cards and Envelopes
A photo (duh!)
Decorative Photo Corners

In the inside I used some Black Card Stock paper I had and a Silver Glitter Gel pen.
(I's hard to tell in the photo that it's glittering...but it is!)

Dan even signed his own name....Imagine?!  hahaha!
I'd love to see your homemade cards too!
Merry Christmas!

ps...we're only sending these to family members, so please don't be offended if you
don't get this card in your

Wendy, I think homemade cards are wonderful! I made our first ones just last year and it was such a fun project! I love your idea of using your picture and embellishing it to fit the season! Thanks for sharing!
