Christmas Card

This is what the front of our card looks like this year. I love to custom design our cards, it's so much fun! That is Bossy's Boy greeting us with his special Christmas collar and Santa medallion with the reindeer. Such a pretty face! The inside I filled the upper half with small squares of different scrapbook pages so that our loved ones can see each of our animals babies. I have been so busy as have all of you as with the preparations, parties, and decorating. Still getting the house ready for guests arrival Tuesday evening. Still must get greenery (I know I know, I have been procrastinating!) for the mantels...at least it will be fresh! A friend is going to allow me to cut some pine branches from her trees. I already have holly and cedar on the farm, but for some reason, we don't have a lot of pine. I know of an old abandon house where there is a magnicent Magnolia tree. I have borrowed its branches over the years.
We lost our electricity three times over the past two weeks which means doing the dishes by hand...ugghh! Thankfully we have a generator but it doesn't cover the whole house. When the electric is gone, my computer is gone! I finally got an IPhone so I can still get online. Back to work I go, but as you read this, I will be busy gathering my greenery, getting last minute groceries, dusting, cleaning, and hopefully baking some cookies! Maybe tomorrow I will have a chance to post about my huge tree....the mother of all trees. She takes hours to complete but she is so worth it as her beauty is astounding!

We made ours this year too. We get a lot of compliments when we work on your own cards. The deer looks like a great idea.
