Even if you aren't sending home made cards this year, take a few minutes and come up with something creative. Here's my own offering this year. I took a photo of the country house, with Jack and two of the family dogs, and added Christmasy stuff like the snow we rarely get, decorations and words. Then ran the whole thing through some artsy paces in PS with brushes and filters and stuff.

Here's what it said on the back, since I could not in good conscience add the usually cheery messages:

In this most challenging holiday season, let's recall the best Christmases from our past, imagine the most wonderful Christmases to come, and cherish our loved ones while we remember the real reason we celebrate this special day. We hold you and your family in our hearts and prayers. Blessings for 2021!


I decided to jump in and add one to your thread Minnie. Not being very festive or creative, but an attempt to throw something together.

And I am glad to see it! My card wasn't terribly festive but it has not been a festive year and the Christmas season seemed muted to me. We didn't get to have Christmas at the country house for various reasons. It was a strange, different kind of Christmas, but we made the best of it. Your card looks warm and inviting in a 2020 subdued fashion, so it feels comfy!
