Christmas Card 2013

I say it every year - but it really is my favorite thing of the year about blogging! Faith has been hosting the Christmas Card Carousel for 6 years, and I've been linking up for 4 I think? Which means I've been blogging far longer than I realized! Anyway, I love seeing everyone's cute family and their cards, and sharing ours here too. So fun to have these in a single place to look back on! (Side note: Blogger, please don't ever let me down. My family's history lies in your hands. Side note to my side note: time to print the blog as a book again.)

As always, designing stuff for myself is HARD. I knew long ago I wanted gold glitter on our card...and it turns out so did a lot of other people this year. :) So trying to use that but not have them all look the same was a little challenging, but I think I managed best I could. I went through like 20 designs before settling on this. Normally I like to do a full horizontal picture on the front, and I did something a little different this year. If only you knew the internal struggle that went on to decide I liked this design. I'm so crazy, and apparently I don't mind airing that here. ;) Here is the front:

And the back -

All pictures by the talented Amanda Rice Photography. I couldn't resist putting a good crying picture of MB on there - not that I had many options where she WASN'T CRYING. #divababy  ;)
As usual, I didn't hand address my envelopes but fancied them up a little with some fun glitter tape from Hobby Lobby (in the sticker section actually). I also used some leopard print glitter tape that was pretty darn cute but a pain to peel off. :) 

Seriously can't believe Christmas is in a week! Merry Christmas to any of you that might still be reading through my random and sporadic posts! :)


  1. Seriously so gorgeous! I love it! And, I can totally relate about the internal struggle with designs - SAME way! I can't tell you how many different options are saved on my computer. I almost threw the towel in and emailed you =)

    Emmas was over the other day and saw your card and said "ooh, this one is so fancy and pretty!" Even she loved it!

    Thank you so much for joining in the fun! I hope you have a very Merry CHRISTmas!!
