Christmas Card 08

Christmas Card 08

One thing they don't tell you before you have kids (other than almost every side effect of pregnancy) is how hard it will be to get a 22 month old and a 3 month old who both have colds to sit and pose patiently for Christmas pictures. Go figure.

    Awwww, this is so sweet! I love your pictures and the colors in your card.
    This is so lovely - so much better than any shop bought one. Oh my the classic style the darling photos and the formality of the journalling. Whoever receives this card this christmas will be wowed. Very very nice.

    Thanks so much for sharing
    I think your photos turned out fantastic! And your card is stunning. I'd certainly love to receive something this beautiful in the mail. Good for you!
    OOoooh and Aaaahh! This is georgous, I just love those Photobasic Actions, I use em all the time!!

    Beautiful Christmas Card, so simple and classy!!
    Well you did good getting them to sit still and even smile! Patience of a mother huh? Your card is sooo pretty, I love the colors in Keri's Cozy Christmas it looks great with the desaturated photos.
    beautiful card, love your use of color. Love the beautiful kiddos too!
    You are so right - they never tell you those REALLY important things about having kids! You got some great shots, despite the colds. Thanks for sharing with us!
    lol - no, no one warns you about the hard stuff!

    I love this card - making the photos b&w is a great idea and I would never have guessed they had colds - also love the colors you chose
    Well the pictures turned out beautiful as did your card. TFS and Merry Christmas!
    What cute little girls! And the layout just fits them! Nice Card.
