Happy New Year!!

Good Evening everyone.  We would like to start off by saying Happy New Year.  I am not sure about you but I am exhausted.  It seems like we were working for weeks and in a blink of an eye it was all over.  We are finally getting caught up and back on track.  We will be posting the Christmas cards that we sent out this year.  We made every card that was sent out.  We ended up making 95 cards about 2 weeks before Christmas.  Nothing like waiting to till the last minute.  We will blame it on moving this year.  We are planning on working on things throughout the year.  We will keep you updated on how that goes for us....Well here is the first design that were made as well as a list of products used and how they were made.  Please take a look and let us know what you think.
