Our 2011 Holiday Card with Blog Hop

After I had picked out the photo that I wanted to use for our Holiday Cards, I searched all of my favorite card websites for the perfect design to match. Unfortunately, I could not find the “right” design to match our orange and navy blue outfits that we wore for our Fall Photo Shoot with DrewB.  Because I’m completely OCD and a perfectionist, I turned to Etsy.  I heart Etsy and all of the creative people on there.  I found katie-did designs, and contacted the owner Katie. I loved all of her card templates, but I am difficult.  I asked her if she could merge a couple of features/graphics from multiple card templates to make the Uber-Awesome Design for my Holiday Card.  After going around and around with 3-4 designs, she achieved perfection status! I had our cards printed via Overnight Prints as 5×7 postcards with rounded corners. They turned out perfect! I love their rounded corners feature.

May I introduce to you, our 2011 Holiday Card:

Because, I love Holiday Cards and all of the FABULOUS Photos that go along with them, I am hosting a 2011 Holiday Card Blog Hop. It is my first ever Holiday Card Blog Hop. Yippee!!!

So make sure to post your Holiday Card on your Blog or Website, and Link-Up.

Please visit all of the fabulous other bloggers that have shared their cards also. I love all the creative ideas that people come up with.

And I even have a button that I created for the Blog Hop! So be sure to grab that code!

I like that your card has the bunting that you've been learning to sew =)
