The Raz Family Christmas card is just as simple as it can get this year. No gold embossed and glittered scenes of a Winter wonderland, or a photo of us all in matching sweaters with the dog sitting at our feet. No....my card this year was a 5 minute production for all 25. A pack of blank white cardstock with envelopes from Michaels (bought way back in the summer), a robin ink stamp and a smudging of red across the robins breast. Stamp, stamp stamp.....swish, swish, swish...and I'm done. Honestly it took not more than a few minutes to do the whole pack. I also made a few gift tags while the ink was out. And if you think that I delved into my collection of watercolors to give the birds a faint blush....you would be mistaken. That crimson breast is done with my lip tint..it comes with a handy little brush for making the perfect little swoosh.
I was thinking of making Frenchie our Christmas card boy this year. I got as far as tying a beautiful red bow around his neck. He does however HATE the camera and turns away the minute it comes out. While I was bent on one knee trying to get his attention, he swooped up to the table and swiped my toast. This is him enjoying his first taste of toast with marmalade.
