Our First Christmas Card!

Last Monday, I sent Brian to the post office with a stack of carefully addressed cards and strict instructions that they had to be sent out with only the festive ornament stamps. After teasing me that he could only find the dumb Liberty bell ones, he sent out our very first Christmas card! And now that they have been received by our family and friends, I am "sending" them to you guys as well. :)

We sent out a Christmas card...

...and a somewhat-coordinating holiday card, too.


And, excitingly, we have started to receive cards in our mailbox as well! Using a canvas I bought half off at A.C. Moore, ribbon, and a handful of clothespins, I made a card holder to showcase all of the warm holidays wishes from our favorite people. It makes me smile when I walk into the house and see it hanging on the door out to our garage. (I do have to admit that I "borrowed" the design from a canvas I saw...I am not that creative!)


Looks like I may need to find some longer ribbon. :) Can't wait to see all of your Christmas cards!

(I linked up with Faith's Christmas Card Carousel and you should too!)

Beautiful card and beautiful wedding photo! I LOVE your card holder! I saw that same lettering on Pinterest and loved it. Did you use a stencil or did you hand paint it? Just curious because it looks absolutely perfect!

This is very similar to a DIY card holder I made the past 2 years with ribbon and mini clothes pins. I'm just not as fancy as you ... mine doesn't have a canvas. Super cute touch!!
