MDS Blog Hop - Christmas Picture Cards

Yikes - I'm a little late getting this posted.  So sorry!  I thought that since I was sick this week that I'd be able to sit and scrapbook to my heart's content.  Not so.  Every time I picked up a book or turned on my laptop I fell asleep.  Maybe next time - because I'm pretty sure there will be a next time  ;)

Our challenge this week was to create a picture Christmas card.  We haven't had family photos done for awhile, so I had to pull pictures from the last shoot.  I'm not sure what I'll actually do for our Christmas card this year, but I'll figure something out.  For now, here's what I've come up with:

I used a template to start from and just replaced the elements with my holiday themed papers and embellishments.  The only time consuming part was deciding what elements to use!  Here's the original template (it's included with the Petite Pennant Punch download):

I had a lot of fun using a new download - the Very Merry Twenty-five Designer Tags.  It's oh, so adorable!  I have a few other ideas that I've been playing around with, so with any luck I'll be able to post those in the next couple of weeks.

You'll want to create your own Christmas cards with My Digital Studio this year, because Stampin' Up is offering bulk buy pricing.  Here's a link to the price list.  I can't wait to finish mine and have them printed.  This year my Christmas cards will be on time!

I used the font Blackjack and these are the supplies I used in making my card:

Enjoy your time on the rest of the Blog Hop - I hope we've inspired you to make your own cards using My Digital Studio!
