2007 Christmas cards

I thought I’d let Hope do the honor of presenting the Kern family’s 2007 Christmas cards…

Hope & 2007 Christmas card

Last year we had a lot of fun making our own Christmas cards so we decided to take another stab at making new ones this year. Of course it’s fun to get Hope involved in creative projects and she certainly played a big part in this year’s cards. We decided to do just one version this year, though this year’s cards were actually MORE work than last years. The cards include a snowman made of buttons. Hope drew the snowman’s hat and arms, and insisted on making sure she drew an orange carrot nose on every snowman.

Now I must admit, though the snowmen are pretty darn cute, I especially love the back of the cards. Every card has Hope’s signature along with an illustration she created of herself.

ButtonsWe finished all 50 cards today. They’re in the mail, finally. Now as you might imagine, we’re a bit tired of buttons. Together Hope and I glued 150 buttons and scored and trimmed all 50 cards. Not to mention each card includes a letter to update everyone on this past year as well as some pretty nifty pictures of the kids.

Hopefully you receive your card in the mail before Christmas. If you don’t receive one this year be sure to send us your address. We’re taking orders now for next year’s cards! :o) Errr….I mean that way we can make sure to add you to our list for next year.

We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

  1. They are absolutely beautiful! As someone that also makes her cards every year, I can appreciate the work that goes into them. But, the worst thing is- each year you have to top what you did the previous year. Just wait until 14 years down the line. ;o)

    Kudos for your hard work and I wish you all a blessed and Merry Christmas!
