Card Craze


I'm really proud of myself... my Christmas cards are ready to go this year. I just need to address envelopes and write cute notes inside. Which is a good start for me since I didn't even send out cards last year*gasp* I know, my grandma really gave it to me & she's 100% Greek when she talks-you listen! Her card is already addressed and ready to go! Love ya Grandma! :)
Truth is I can't take any of the credit for this awesome achievement. I owe it all to the KOTM card kit!
These cards make me happy because they're fun and simple to put together but they still have a homemade feel. I love the epoxy stickers and extra details added to every card. We usually just send out pictures but this year Collin is going to write our letter through the eyes of Avery, which we all can guess will be pretty funny too. The kit comes with 8 1/2"X 11" sheets of cute paper to print your letter on.

Also, some smaller cards with envelopes for presents, and lots of tags. I really have no excuse this year to have sweet sentiments with all my gifts.


Why were we so excited this weekend...

Twilight Movie? Nope.
Utah vs BYU football game? Nope.
Floor seats to the COLDPLAY concert? YEP!!!

It was AMAZING!! Wow! Still on a musical high!!

Allie said...

Way to go!!! I always buy some 'add a photo' cards the day after Christmas to use the next year. I haven't dug them out yet though! Yours are adorable!

I love musical highs. :) Sounds like a good one.

Hey liz since we all can't be on your Christmas card list, and I'm sure everyone else would love to hear this letter that collin is going to write, is there anyway you would share with us? He really is such a ham, and I'm sure the letter will be funny too.

LOVE the pics of you & Colin jumping. I bet Colin is one of the funniest people you'd ever meet. His facial expressions say it all. What a clown.

Lucky girl, getting to go to Coldplay - they are on my list to go see!!

I know what you mean about the Christmas Cards. Last year I left them all in California when I went to Pennsylvania for Christmas...Thank God for Snapfish - that was what I ended up sending last year... The only pro - I am pretty much done for this year only have to write the notes and add the pics and mail off!!

noel joy said...

oh i'm so jealous on both accounts. i haven't even started designing my christmas cards. december is just sneaking up on me way too fast.

collin would make a fabulous cheerleader... has he thought of trying out?

Kathy said...

I love Coldplay. I bet the concert was awesome!!

I saw Twilight this weekend. It's the first movie I have been to in over two years. I haven't been to a movie since our little Carson was born.

Coldplay? I'm so jealous.

That's great that you're all ready to send your cards out. I'm almost 1/2 way finished. They're posted on CK here - http://www.creatingkeepsakes.com/mb/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=197191

I know exactly what you mean about the Greek Grandparents! I'm half Greek.

Tiffany said...

OH my gosh Coldplay!!!!!!! Lucky you girl!! Glad you had a fabulous time!

wowschow said...

Me and my hubby are so jealous about your floor seats! We didn't get tickets :(

Jamie said...

Coldplay - lucky! Christmas cards done - better still! They look super cute - love the pic! Twilight was fantastic! Not as great as the book, but still left me wanting more. I wasn't so thrilled with the actor they chose for Edward either, but after seeing the movie, I'm here to say that he gets the job done! :) Thanks to you, I am forever OBSESSED with Twilight! I thank you - my husband, probably not so much! ;)

Michelle Laulu said...

I'm working on my cards too and LOVE the kit. BTW, what is collin holding in your family picture? It's a cute picture.

Stephanie said...

Please share the letter with us! I love this idea!

Tiffany said...

Okay so I had to write again. Because those cards you made look oh so fabulous, I went and purchased that KOTM. I hope you are happy! LOL!

Have a great week!

The strangest thing just happened...I was just reading the post about you guys going to Coldplay and they came on the radio! I hope you had a fab time.

Congrats on getting your cards done too - I found last year's ones in my decorations box on the weekend - looks like I didn't send mine either (lol).

Neisey said...

Sounds like fun! Great job with the Christmas cards. I love getting mine done early also. I feel behind if I haven't finished my cards and I start recieving them in the mail. :)
