Family Xmas cards

Well, I'm just not going to get all my xmas cards made this year so I'm concentrating on close family and friends. To make my life a bit easier we got some photo's taken of the 3 kids and I decided to use them for family xmas cards this year - makes it all a bit quicker and easier really, so here's a batch I made this week...

 I made them all a little different - I'd be bored to tears making them all the same. And used a selection of Dovecraft, DCWV, Daisy & Dandelion and CraftHouse papers. All card for mats was either gemstone or plain core'dinations. I used a selection of Martha Stewart Around the Page punches, Kanban greetings, Martha Stewart snowflake punches, craftwork cards card candy and an X-cut corner rounder punch.

Seeing as I purchase the pic on CD with the copyright waiver, I can show you the actual picture I used.

 and here's them in black and white - I particularly like this one

Hi Debbi,
A great idea. You have made a fantastic job of these cards. Making each of them different was quite a trick. They are wonderful.

Great idea for your cards Debbi. Unfortunately mine are much too old and then again we never could get all 3 of them to look sensible at the same time long enough to get a photo. I love the photo of your kids - gorgeous!
