December Daily 2010 | Day Sixteen

Welcome to Day Sixteen!

For the first time in years, I sent Christmas cards.

I designed the card (available at Designer Digitals) and had it printed at Persnickety Prints. I adhered it to pattern paper from The Girls Paperie.

In addition to the actual card and a photo of the cards, I included a couple notes that my Mom had written to the kids (if you wonder where I get this desire to write nice, positive, encouraging letters to my kids, it's all from her).

I also included the left-over part of one of the sheets of stamps.

Before sending out the cards I took a photo of them in the kitchen:

On the photo I added a Holiday Title And Journal element (a great place for hand-witing or typing your journaling) and three vintage Christmas chipboard buttons from Jenni Bowlin.

Paper along the bottom is from the Anna Griffin Georgette Holiday pack.
