Do I make my own, or order online, or buy a box at the store?
For the last 4 years, I've made my own, save for one lapse. Just one.
I don't pride myself on the fact that I make "homemade" cards, it's just something I like to do...IF I have the time. That is a big IF.
Back in 2008, I made my first one.
(disclaimer...horrible camera phone picture...the original is a sepia tone picture, mounted on a card with festive scrapbook paper and the title: Shepherds watched their flocks by night.
Because we have our own sheep, the title suited us!
The next year, I tried something different.
In 2010, I entered a contest through my very new blog, that won me 50 free Christmas cards from Shutterfly.com. It was AWESOME. I LOVED the cards.
In 2011, I tried homemade again, and got kinda fancy with my Cricut machine.
Each one was unique, color-wise. They were alot of work!
This year...I'm up in the air. I've yet to take a picture of the kids, and wonder when I'll even have the time to get one of them together! Not to mention how lately they don't like their picture to even be taken.
BUT, I was surfing on Pinterest the other day, looking for card ideas. I found several, and I like something from each of them...so ideas are forming in my mind as I write this.
You're thoughts are much appreciated!
