Christmas Cards gone digital!

Sorry that it's been so long since I updated my blog. This has been a crazy year. So crazy that I haven't been able to do our Christmas cards yet. Normally I have them not only done, but mailed out by now. I want to send them because we have pass along cards for our adoption that we are sending with them (that and I always send Christmas cards). I tried to buy some this year, but just couldn't. But making them was just stressing me.

That is until I remembered that I have the My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up! I could make Christmas cards quickly! So far I have come up with 2 options. After figuring out what photos I wanted to use they each took less than 5 minutes. What do you think? I'm still going to play around a little and see what else I can come up with, but not bad if I do say so myself. These are both done using the Christmas Jingle Scrapbooking Kit on the My Digital Studio. Love it! Seriously, this software, has got to be one of my favorite crafting purchases in a long time!

My goal for next year is to make at least 5 Christmas cards a month starting in January. This way by December I will have plenty of cards and I won't stress so much come time to send them. That's the plan anyway. ;o) I will be sitting down in the next week or so to make a Birthday card for my neice. So I will have that for you soon. I promise it won't be a month before I post again!

Oh, and adoption update. We are still waiting to be chosen. Our agency profile is officially updated and we are good to go and back online with them. We are also in the process of looking into getting approved for the states Foster to Adopt program. You can help us get the word out that we are hoping to adopt. Take a look at the right sidebar. You'll see our adoption blog button and an HTML code to go with it. copy and paste that HTML code into a gadget on your blog and viola! A button directing others to our blog. (BTW, the button, was made by me, using My Digital Studio. Soooo quick and easy, I love it!) If you want to stay updated on us and our journey, other than my occasional updates, I update our adoption blog often so check it out. :D

Great cards! Who knew it could be easy? I may have to try that software. Good luck on the adoption! I'm still praying for you!
