In the meantime, I've been card making. I decided that I wanted to see if I could make our Christmas cards this year. I kept it fun by playing with supplies (it should be fun, shouldn't it!?), working on several different designs. When the time came to replicate them, I just made 4-6 of each one.
We needed about 60 cards, and I had great fun making them. The designs are saved on Flickr. For those who are interested, go take a look. I apologize that they are scans, but I haven't brought my love of photography together yet with card making.
