MY CHRISTMAS CARD UNWRAPPED!

Well, here it is, my Christmas card for 2008--a custom made silhouette of my children and our dog made by Le Papier Studios. The top version is my Christmas card and the bottom is a 5x7 for framing.
I am planning to put a little black and white picture on the inside of the card so people really know what my kids look like and how they have grown. This years effort is a little outside my usual picture, but I think it is fun. I will share what I do with my cards every year at a later date.
I would love to hear what you are doing for your card this year!

These are beautiful! So different - I love them! We did the photo cards - but I have stationary to write notes to everyone. I had to do two seperate pictures - one for each kid. I could not get a good one of both at the same time!

I just love your card. It is the most unusual and beautiful out of many I have ever seen. You will treasure the 5 x 7 too for many years.
