2010 Cards

Last January, I posted about my great plan to make all the birthday and anniversary cards I needed for the year all at once. I couldn't ahow them then, because many of my readers would be receiving them. Now that the year is over I can share. Birthday card #1:

And #2 (which I realized I needed if I was going to send cards to husbands and wives):

Anniversary card:

And something many of you have already seen, our Christmas card:

I opted to make it this year since I couldn't get the St. Jude's cards from Target anymore. Might not be doing that again next year.
Now to figure out my cards for 2011!

Christmas Ornaments

Ryan's ornament this year is a soccer ball made out of felt, with the black pieces hand-appliqued on. Jillian's is a painted wooden cat made to look like Amore. She loves her "Meow!"

My MIL's Creation

My mother in law gave me this at Thanksgiving and I thought it was very creative! I didn't think I was going to use it, because I already have a way I display my Christmas cards that I like, but it turned out to be good for the non-photo cards I received.

It is made out of a sewing hoop with clothespins adhered with hot glue. They're in sets of three with two pointing outward and one pointing inward and spce between each set.
