our 2010 christmas card

Hope no one minds how late I am sharing pics of our Christmas cards. It's been a non-stop busy tizzy around here ever since our trip. We must be the luckiest ducks in the world, because this year we won 75 free cards from Minted in a giveaway here, plus had an opportunity to get some legit family photos with our photographer friend Erin Johnson. Whoo-hoo! I absolutely love the look of the mini books because you can roll short sentiments (or in our case quick family updates) + 4 photos all into one beautiful product. I've also seen these used as save-the-dates or wedding invites. Nifty.
When the stack of cards first arrived at my door, I thought that the 2 eyelets on the side needed a little something to finish off the card. A little yellow+white bakers' twine did just the trick!
