Merry Christmas Cards





This is the photo from our Christmas card this year- which I am just addressing tonight!

I drew this card about 10 years ago and had a box of them printed up in black and white-which is how we sent them that year.

I had enough left over to use them again, but I hated to send them out with the same look, so I decided to add some color this year. My mom, aunt and I watercolored them one night, and tonite my daughter did all the signing. I may get the hang of this delegating thing after all! We added some glitter too.

I wish peace and joy to all you internet friends this Christmas!

Great looking family there Joyce! The card looks great with its revamp too. Such interesting houses you have over there. They look very picture book perfect. I could just imagine a cosy Christmas in front of the fire.

Such a lovely family!!! You are a blessed Mom. The added watercolor idea looks great. That was a bonus for you, for you didn't have to come up with a brand new ink design for your cards this year. Very clever! Happy New Year my friend. :)
