Make/Share a Christmas Card

Post by minniev »

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!

Aw come on Frank. If you don't exercise your creative muscles you'll lose them! And don't say you're not creative. Some of us still remember the pigs.

Come On People: I know you can do this.

You may remember my rabbit house that I made from an apple during the summer lockdown. Well, the rabbits have decorated their house for Christmas, so here it is. Proof you don't have to have a good photo to start with.

I did one final card, on Christmas Eve after keeping all three boys all day that day while their daddy assisted Santa with some construction projects.
