did it!


Thanks to some good advice from Sarah of CraftyFolk, I managed to make the holiday postcards that I was fussing so much over. She recommended that I basically chill out and " just make something that makes you smile when you look at it.". So, I tried to forget about what I thought everyone else would want in a card and simply designed the card that I wanted to send out this year. This version is obviously personalized for Justin and I but I made some without initials to sell.

These lovebears actually resemble us a bit (at least our accessories and hot drink habit) and I think it'll be a fun couple-y card to send off since it's our first Christmas since we got married.
