Our 2013 Christmas Card

I really lucked out several months ago when my mother in law forwarded me an email with an incredible deal on Christmas photo cards. I was able to create my card quickly and easily online, but the best part was the price - it was just over $3 for 20 photo cards and envelopes with free shipping! It was awesome to mark one thing off my Christmas to do list so early, and at such a low price.

For the front of the card, I used a favorite photo taken last year during a snowstorm (it's also the new blog header photo). The back of the card was left blank for writing a personal message to the recipient.

Prints of this photo are for sale in my Etsy shop as well.
Use the code "BLOG5" to get $5 off any order over $25!

I was very pleased with how the cards turned out and can't wait to get them all mailed off. Do you create personalized Christmas cards each year?

PS - Here's our 2012 Christmas card.

PPS - Don't forget to visit Daisy, Staci and Sue today for their posts in the Homemade Living series. Next week I will share my post along with Mary and Jackie.

  4. Nice photo! I'll bet its a good feeling to have that taken care of already. I too send out photo Christmas cards, but the photo is always of my family (my kids hate the annual "getting the family photo" tradition!) Luckily, this year I already had a family photo, the one from my daughter's graduation.

  5. Beautiful photo.
    We send a Christmas card too. This year we created our own little message too. I send a letter to the folks we do not see often to keep them posted on how we are.

  6. The card is beautiful and that is a great price! :) Just last year I started doing the personalized Christmas card thing and I just love it, I always do cards just because I like being able to reach out to everyone but I love the idea of a personalized one even better. However I spent a small fortune on mine, worse than last year, I wasn't very careful since I was in a hurry and late, but what the heck :)

  10. Every card of any kind I make myself, drawing the picture. Sometimes I make my own stamps too and put them on in addtion to the postage stamps (they let you do that, which surprised me).

  24. Oh that's a gorgeous scene for a Christmas card! Most years I don't make my own cards...I just mail out too many and it would be so expensive. But one of these days I am going to try it!

  25. That gives a perfect Christmassy feeling (does not look like it was clicked during a snowstorm)

  26. Just a quick drop in to say that your rosemary olive oil cake is part of my edible Christmas gift guide.

  27. This is a truly beautiful Christmas card Tammy. Very scenic :)

  28. I love your card! It is very wintery and will make a great Christmas card. We do picture cards as well for most people. Some people just get a generic card purchased at the big box store. I was really late in ordering cards this year and they won't arrive until MO so it will be a rush to get them in the mail before they turn into New Years cards!

  29. That is so lovely!

  30. What a beautiful Christmas card and what a deal you made. I did print out my own Christmas cards of our trailer in the snow when we where in Idaho. I made them into postcards. But they cost me a lot more.. I hope you having a happy week so far.

    Hugs~

    Happy Thursday my friend.

    Hugs~
