  1. Adorable! I do send cards. I also do some store-bought photo cards, too, since I have a little one. I usually try to enclose the two together, unless I know it's really someone who wouldn't give a hoot about the handmade card.

  6. Your card is gorgeous! I've been making homemade Christmas cards for about 10 years, I used to make them for everyone I send too, but it got to be too much. Now I only send homemade cards to the special people in my life.

  29. Your Northern Lights background is stunning! My parents have a farm in northern Canada and the lights, there, especially on cold, crisp days, are spectacular...and they crackle! Nature is phenomenal! Yes I send cards and since I started making them: home-made only! And my mom sends my home-made cards, too (I'm so grateful she does...makes me happy).
