so I'm going to toot my own horn!

I finally have the time to sit down and get our Christmas card ready.  I realized as I sift through our pictures there really isn't a picture of all of us together--SO what!  I did have a picture of my hubby & I and then the kids so I used those.  I searched through SEVERAL cards online and just couldn't find anything that fit.  THEN then light bulb went on!  DUH!  You've got digital Christmas paper!  Truth be told I've been collecting digital items hoping one day I would be brave enough to actually do something with them.  Now, I know this isn't the fanciest card around but I'm pretty proud of the fact that I made it all myself.  NO help from my techno AMAZING hubby, or googling for videos:
what was even better it only took me 45 minutes to complete!  I ordered them at 4x6 perfect for A2 envelope size and I can pick them up in an hour from Costco!  WOOHOO!  One less thing on my checklist, AND I proved to myself that I can do HARD things! :)

supplies used:
pattern paper: Echo Park
type fonts: Apple typewriter, mr. and mrs. popsicle
not sure where the doilies came from it just says Christmas Giveaways

One more thing I wanted to share was about my December Daily.  I didn't want my pictures to have finger prints all over them (I'm printing them 2 x 3 from home...) so I am making my own protectors out of these:
yes, there are 100 in the stack, they were sitting on my desk from another project.  They work great!  here is what some of mine look like:
Thanks for reading through this post!  Hope you are having an AWESOME day!
