So I decided to let some traditions go.

  1. I love the cards you designed! And CONGRATULATIONS!!! We’re doing photo cards for the first time this year and I don’t know why we’ve waited so long because they were SO easy to create, plus I don’t have to hand-address each one!

  2. Those are some really nice pictures. I really like how easy it is to make these online. Someday I might try this… kind of late this Christmas,
