For those of you that aren't familiar with my neuroses, I develop what I like to refer to as "Holiday Anxiety" if I receive a Christmas/Holiday card in the mail before mine are sent out. I'm serious, it ruins my whole holiday season!!! Since Thanksgiving is kind of the "kick-off" of the Christmas season, I have decided (for everyone) that Holiday Cards sent/delivered and received before Thanksgiving are just wrong and hereby off limits and any that are received before Thanksgiving are disqualified from my self proclaimed "Holiday Card race". I am pretty sure that I am the only one competing but if it provides me with a touch of amusement, then so be it.
This year, I won the race!!! WOOHOOOOOO and since everyone (pretty much) has theirs, I am going to share them. Also, for those of you that don't know me, I make 120 Christmas Cards every year and the list keeps growing (although I kinda trimmed my list this year, sorry if you didn't get one). Last year I went pretty crazy with them and they took me FOREVER to make, this year they are a bit simpler, but I still love how they turned out.
The complete card:
There is a hang tag/Christmas ornament hanging on the front of the card with the annual Christmas kiddo picture, backgrounds are cut pieces of scrapbook paper:
These took up all of my time for 2 weeks, and now I have a bunch of extra time to get some of my Christmas presents made!!! WOOOHOOO!!!! Hope you liked them this year!! Not sure what next years will look like, I imagine I won't know until the last possible moment. I have a few more things to post soon! Happy Holidays All!!!!
