Merry Christmas! Today is the perfect day for my Simple Things Thursday – Christmas Cards. I love them and I even enjoy sending them. These days cards don’t go out as often as they used to and I am guilty of this too. But it really is fun to receive a card in the mail. Snail mail, that is!
I love it at Christmas when the cards start rolling in from our close knit circle of friends and family. A lot of my friends are on social media so I see their kids and hear about their lives during the year but some of them aren’t so to get a card from them and to find out what has been going on in their lives over the past year is priceless.
It makes me happy!
I have a card holder in the shape of mittens that a friend of mine gave me several years ago and I love to display all of the cards on it. Last year I think I left it up until about May or June. LOL!
Some are handmade, some are store bought and some are photo cards. So precious!
Here is the card I made and sent this year.
I love to add just a little about us on the back. Not so much that people get bored with it but just the highlights. (If there were any that year) This year I had quite a lot to say. I usually add pics of the kitties but I had some good photos of the kids this year and I guess they should be the focus. LOL!
Do you send out Christmas cards? If so, what kind do you send?
Merry Christmas to all of you and thank you so much for the Christmas Card! They are simple things but the make me really happy.
