Normally

Normally I have a cute photo Christmas card.  Normally I have them in the mail by now.  Normally I have no trouble with this task...but it appears to be a very abnormal year.


A sweet little shop by the name of Belle and Boo offered up these wonderful Christmas card sets.


All it needed was a personal touch.  Vintage typing paper from sales and  vellum left over from odd projects were just soft enough.


Photoshop and a vintage Christmas card greeting.  Careful cutting on my paper cutter and clear scrapbook tape made this simple.


All that is left is to finish these up with stamps and addresses. 


Now if I can just get back to my normal I might get these out in the mail before Christmas?

I agree Renee, it is a most abnormal year! Everything has happened too soon! I thought that i was just getting older, but my daughter concurs, what's up with that? Stayed up until 4:00 the other morning to finish my cards!

Lovely results and I admire that you still find time to send Christmas cards. I haven't sent them in many years and I sure miss getting them in return. Ah... those were the days!

The cards are so sweet and just perfect for you! I got almost all of my 80-something Christmas cards sent earlier this week. There are a couple I have to double check addresses on...nephew in the military who keeps getting moved around, etc...
I like to think of writing notes in the Christmas cards as my time to count my blessings. I am truly thankful for my friends and family.

I am completely smitten with the graphics on your cards. I just picked up our picture cards from Walgreens last night. Everything is later than usual this year. I think I'll be sneaking my cards to work today.

Renee, I normally have my cards out early too, not this year...I did receive a packet of darling tags in the mail today. 'Wanted to say that your "Good Girl" tag was so cute printed on the shiny card stock! Love it! Tammy

Your cards are so cute. I know what you mean I usually try to have my cards out the lst week in December. But I just can not seem to get with it this year.
