Day 7, Thankful for my Christmas Cards!

Every year I paint my Christmas cards, it has become a tradition of sorts for me. I love doing something unique that no one else has and send out a card that I have painted and designed. Some years they are fine art paintings and some years they are whimsical but they are always done with love! It is like sending a little gift to each person I mail too. By creating my own card I am able to add some photos and a paragraph about our little yearly vacation. I think the biggest challenge every year is to be able to settle in on a design, paint it, get it edited and off to the printer early enough so I have to start early. Today is that day, the day I finished up my Christmas cards of 2013! I was able to get them off in time to use a 40% off coupon too! Yeahhh for me!! Here is my Day 6 create everyday challenge piece!

I went a bit whimsical this year, using collage and paints and stamps and papers even buttons!

I have made my own cards a few times. It is extra work, but your wonderful card inspires me!
