Christmas Cards & Holiday Letters ~ Linky Party!!

I have seen so many unique and beautiful Christmas cards lately

that it’s gotten me in the mood to search for my family’s 2010 annual


Here are the cards that I hand-crafted last year.

I always say – “Oh, I’ll just stamp a cute snowman, add some glitter and

ribbon – it’ll be easy!”  Not!

I do love making my own cards but find that when I have to make

50 of the same card, it can get quite monotonous and expensive!

Along with the card, I always include a family photo…

one of my favorite things to receive from others at Christmastime :’)

Especially from friends & family who we only see through their annual

Christmas greetings.

It’s amazing how much kids grow in one year!

And how much gray hair we adults can accumulate – hee hee!

Here are a few of my favorite sites for inspiration in making cards:


Splitcoast Stampers

Stamp TV

Two Peas in a Bucket

Twisted Chick Creations

Yesterday (thanks to a Twitter friend), I was introduced to an

ETSY store called Kottage on 5th Design Studios

and I instantly fell in love!!!

I do believe that I will be ordering one of these

beautifully designed cards soon!

Just as soon as I can gather up my family for that

“perfect” family picture – LOL!

Can you tell that I’m really drawn to the Damask designs??

I will also be using a black & white photo as they did…
