Christmas Card Carousel


So Christmas cards are one of my FAVORITE things!  I love designing them, sending them, receiving them - everything about them!  The only problem with designing Christmas cards for others is that you sometimes procrastinate on your own - ask my dear friend Tricia Nae!  But this year our cards was one of the very first I designed so that I could get it out early! 


I am one who likes to imply significant meaning in the wording of their cards.  Since it is Emmalee's first Christmas, I wanted something about a "first Christmas" incorporated into the card.  So I reference "THE first Chrismtas" in my card and it got me thinking about that first Christmas...can you imagine what it might have been like?  Can you hear the angels singing?  Can you smell the livestock that were traveling witht he shepherd to meet a sweet baby?  Do you hear the soft lullaby a mother sings to her Savior child?  It gives me goosebumps just thinking about what it would have been like. 

So it is my prayer for you that Christmas 2011 will be filled with the wonder of that First Christmas for you and your family, today and for many Christmases to come!


"May the wonder of that first Christmas and the joy of His abundant blessings fill your heart today and always."
