Christmas Card 2009

Oh my gosh, I LOVE Christmas cards! We live in a world of email, evite, e-everything! Do you ever feel like the only "regular" mail you get is bills? That's why I get so excited this time of year. I'm so excited to check the mail every day!

This year was the first year I decided to do a personalized photo card. We used a sweet girl from Etsy to create these:

Our friend, Rachael, took the picture one afternoon when we had a little impromptu photo-session on our porch swing. I look like a whack-a-doodle but it's candid and I love that!

*EDIT* One of my readers asked me which Etsy seller did our cards. I can't believe I forgot to give you her name (she was great to work with and one of the more affordable ones I found!)... It's sweetpapers.

I can't wait to visit the other blogs participating in the Card Carousel. Are you playing along??

so cute, I love it!
I am so bad...
1.) I have not sent my cards out
2.) We have not taken our "family" photo to put in the card or to make a cute card like yours
and
3.) I don't even feel like messing with it!

Have a great day!

xoxo,
Blair
