This year's Christmas Card


I know people like receiving photo cards at Christmas but when your kids are grown and out on their own, it's just easier to paint something than to try and line everybody up for a picture :)

This is on watercolor paper and I punched little snowflakes out of some tin foil to adhere.

I ordered through www.vistaprints.com Their prices are pretty reasonable and you can pick from so many designs! Also....they take payment through paypal so that was a nice bonus!

I've been fighting an awful head cold this past week. I don't know which is more chapped~ my lips or my nose! ugh :( I'm starting to come around and hopefully I'll muster up enough energy to decorate for Christmas sometime this weekend.

Hope you are all enjoying a cozy, lazy Saturday morning like I am :) I LOVE my weekends!

Your Christmas card is adorable, Darla! I've ordered business cards in the past through Vistaprint and have found them really good with lots of great offers.

So sorry you're dealing with a head cold. Sending healing vibes your way. xo
