I love modern, clean, simple cards! I loved ones from Target, Papyrus, and Barnes & Noble. Alan and I had different tastes — he was more traditional. So I guess it’s a good thing that after we had J, we feel compelled (and want to!) send a photo card of the family. No need to argue anymore ;).

I love Barnes & Noble too. It is a really great place to buy all things paper, not just books.

The ex pup daddy and I used to do a photo card too so I didn’t buy cards other than my immediate family for many years. It was a big challenge each year to decide where we were going to shoot. We even shot in a cactus garden one year!

I’ve been known to diy my cards too. I was heavy into rubber stamping, glitter and scrapbooking scissors in the 90s! I also used to like to insert my own poems. I think a blog post of your cards is in order :-)

Tania, I’m always open to new inspiration and design ideas. Love the tree. I’m getting ready to create some new ideas myself so now I can sleep on these… Thanks for sharing. I need more though

And I just wrote on AMauiblog that I don’t get stressed out about Christmas. How could I forget the cards and how I stress out about it? I missed last year entirely so I’m in big trouble if I miss again. Some people don’t even have our new address so it’s double trouble. Thanks for the reminder (I think) BTW cute cards, Maybe the tree with bird would be a good choice.

I saw a lot of cute cards on sale at Longs if you’re looking for a Hawaii theme. I don’t give as much cards out as I used to but I still buy a few each year so I have a good collection on hand. This year I also found some great ones at Pier One that benefit Unicef.

I love graphics as art and I can see that you do too. The essence of style!

Thank you! I think you have great style too. I’d love to learn how to make my own graphics. So much things to learn, so little time.
