Merry Christmas Wishes! December 14, 2007

Last weekend I finalized my Christmas card. I decided to do another “make your own” card of one of my photos.

The past 2 years I had my Black Lab Lucas on the card…one with a Photoshopped Christmas hat and last year he was sitting in front of the Christmas tree.

I decided to not do another Lucas card so I photographed my ornaments on my tree and picked my favorite one…show below:

Some that weren’t chosen for the card:

Some good news! My husband ordered my Birthday/Christmas gift from B&H Photo. On Monday my Nikon Telephoto AF Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR (Vibration Reduction) Autofocus Lens should arrive! I can’t wait!!

I’m looking forward to creating my own softbox (hopefully over this weekend) and working on Macros to make my own Birthday Cards/Special occasion cards for family & friends like I do for Christmas every year. I think it’s a great way to send them something personal while saving the $4.00-$5.00 that card companies charge!!

I want to find cardboard cards that have the open hole in the front where I can slip the photos into. Otherwise I have to figure out how else to make the cards. I haven’t done any research yet on the best ways to do it but I’m sure once I search ideas will come out of the woodwork. 🙂

    Merry Christmas to you, friend. :o)
    Your card is lovely. I printed my cards on photo paper, but haven’t had time to work out the details. Finding envelopes are a challenge that I haven’t tackled yet either. If you find someway through that, let me know. :o)
