Christmas cards...

Well if you are like me you try to take a picture for your Christmas cards...trying to get three kids to look at the same time, smile at the same time, has not gotten any easier...I wanted to take pictures then alter them and make them look antique...
being silly...
oh, this is the card they want to give to their grandpa...

after awile, I was done, so this is it...

and here it is!!! Whew, I don't have to do this for another year! LOL


  1. What beautiful children. I love the final photo, the middle child with the hat makes it!

  2. Stephanie -

    The card came out great! I like the first photograph as well. I am new to blogging and found your blog via Twice Remembered. Your blog is beautiful and will be returning.

    Merry Christmas!

  3. Oh, Stephanie, what a neat vintage patina! Handsome kiddos too! Thanks for entering REB giveaway!

    Christmas blessings,

  6. LOVE your vintage-look Christmas card! Handsome kids, too! (But you already knew that!) ;-)
    Merry Christmas,

  7. Stefanie what a beautiful Christmas picture. Your kids are all very beautiful... well the guys might not like that word :-) OK, change that to, you have a very good looking family. Love the antique/vintage effect. It turned out awesome. Love it.

    I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your wonderful and kind comments about our Most Treasured Ornaments. You are very sweet and you will never know how much your comments have fill my heart with joy. Thank you. Wishing you and all your family a very merry Christmas.

    Hugs and Kisses,

  8. Awesome!! Yes my silly sister thought I had a random pic of her 4 (10 yrs to 15 mths!!) Of course not! Yours is great and you got the dogs! Well Done You!!
    Merry Christmas!
    Hugs, Lisa

  9. Your card came out wonderful! I love the antique feel!
    Happy Holidays,

  10. Very neat! They were good sports to pose for you too and Gramps is in for s big surprise! Happy Holidays!

  11. It is just beautiful!! Grandpa will love this picture of them and you achieved the look you were going for! Merry Christmas!

  12. Your vintage look greeting card is gorgeous and your children are all so nice looking and such great sports to go along with your idea. My kids would never cooperate like that. Love the way sweet doggie is looking up at your son. Adorable! So much love there. Holiday blessings :) Tammy

  13. I can imagine what fun that was taking pictures of your lovely children. The final card is gorgeous! Love the dog in the picture too. Blessings!

  14. The card came out perfect. I know what you mean about getting just the right card. If you have been reading my blog, 1960's tree has the famous Christmas picture of me and my naked Barbie. No that did not get used as the card for 1965, much to my mother's dismay. Merry Christmas to you and your lovely family.

  15. What lovely children you have. I think the photo you chose looks fabulous, especially in the vintage tone. Have a very blessed holiday to you and your family.

  16. Stefanie, your children are beautiful! Great pictures! Merry Christmas sweetie!

    Love ya,
