2011 Christmas Card

Today I am linking up with Faith's Christmas Card Carousel.

I love both giving and receiving Christmas cards.

It is so fun to look in the mailbox and walk away with a handful of Christmas cards. I love to see the creativity that people use each year for their card.

This year we used Tiny Prints and I LOVE their cards. They are such good quality and sturdy.

Which is obviously important when people throw them in the trash at the end of the year :-)

I actually save all of my cards because I like to look at them from year to year....but I know the majority of people do not do that.

I also frame our Christmas card each year, so all of our previous Christmas cards are lined up no our fireplace hearth. I think it will be so neat to look back on these throughout the years.

Yes, I have an unhealthy obsession with Christmas cards.

Just in case you are curious, our previous cards:
And the 2011 Tree Christmas Card:
I used our pictures from Eli's 6 month photo shoot. And I of course had to include some pictures of the cute little guy by himself. He is too cute for just one picture!

If you would like to share your card be sure to link up on Faith's blog!
