Different Christmas Cards

What weather, we had a bit more snow last night, but on top of snow, ice, more snow, more ice, more snow the pavements are like ice rinks.  We don't have a lot of snow but with it falling overnight its just freezing over.  I don't mind snow on it's own, I love to see a fresh blanket of snow in the morning when you first go out and leave your footprints behind, there is a lovely clean feel about the air but rain and ice you can keep it.

I thought I would do something different for my sister to give to her grandchildren as regards a Christmas card, she has a step-son who has four children and a step-daughter who has one child.  So this is what I came up with, sorry about the photography but unless you are a professional I doubt if we mortals can achieve a decent picture.

The two cards

And another

My sister is picking them up at lunch time so I hope she likes them.  No doubt I will know right away because she tells you as it is no beating about the bush with her.
Nearly walkies time again so I am off to wrap up for my foray outside to face the elements.
Take care ladies and wrap up warm.

    Great idea, I agree that they will be well received, a very personal gift which will be brought out each year.
    Take care when you are out, still no snow here yet. I am fed up with the rain, which is what we are getting.

  12. What a great idea Wilma. Hope your sister liked them but really what's not to like? They are unique after all.

    It's so slippy here I'm terrified to go out with the dogs. They're so big and strong.
