Its that time of year

I can't believe Thanksgiving is tomorrow- our family has so much to be thankful for this year!

and then... its Christmas time!!! Yayy- my favorite time of the year :o) I just love the whole season- the songs, the decorations, the feeling in the air... its truly the most wonderful time of the year!

And one part of it is the cards- that tradition of forcing your family to pose for a picture, struggling to get the kids to smile (or at least look at the camera without crying). Then you get that oh so beautiful picture made into a gorgeous Christmas card. After that you address your envelopes with all of your friends and families addresses until your hand is cramping and your fingers are numb (unless you get smart and finally print your addresses on mailing labels like I have never done, but say I'm going to every year!). After that you spend a bucket load of money on stamps, and voila... your cards are sent out :o)

Really, though, sending out cards is another of my favorite Christmas traditions, one that I can't wait to do! I'm working on a lot of cards right now... here are a ew of the designs I've done this year:

these are just a few of the designs I've done so far, although in different colors. And if you notice I used pictures from last year, so as not to ruin the surprise of everyones photo's!

I hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving!!

2 Corinthians 9:15 Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!
