christmas cards

It's that time of year again....to send out Christmas cards. Last year (if you remember) was my very first year sending out cards. I know it's sad, I still have a hard time remembering I'm an adult most days. Anywho, I wanted to keep up the tradition this year, even though we are in the middle of moving.  I needed something quick, simple & within our small budget (we are saving all our pennies, moving is darn expensive!) 

So this year I picked up some blank non-Christmasy cards that were on clearance at Target ($2 for a 10 pack) & decided to jazz them up a bit to use as our Christmas cards.  I used my tool of choice - Sharpies - & the rest is history...well once I sign & address all of them. 

BEFORE: 

AFTER:

I'm quite pleased with the outcome - plus, you really can't complain for $2 a pack.  I'm hoping to get a few family photos printed up to slip inside as well.  Hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving! I'm still a little bit stunned that tomorrow is the 1st of December!  hugs & cheek pecks, Meghan ♥

  1. Oh these are beautiful! What a brilliant idea, and it would save the trouble of buying separate packs of cards for every holiday.
