dd08: cards in the mail

playing catch-up a little bit here on december daily; i'm slightly behind in terms of pages, and a bit further behind on posting the photos, but luckily there is NO statute of limitations on papercrafting!!! :) plus, i really am enjoying both the process and the fact that we will have this wonderful record of our first christmas in the new house! 

(patterned paper: pink paislee, american crafts; letter stickers: american crafts; rub-on letters: making memories; label maker: dymo; photo printed on kodak premium glossy paper; labels made with digital elements from katie pertiet, anna aspnes, vera lim + more and printed on avery full-sheet labels; fonts: manuscript, bohemium typewriter; ink: colorbox;vintage: page from an old book as reverse of previous day)
ok, so, sunday december 8th was all about signing and packing up my cards in preparation for getting them in the mail. i have to say (for the UMTEENTH TIME, sorry, lol!) that i absolutely looooooove having my card-making done by thanksgiving via ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ the last couple of years! i vividly remember alllllll the many years in the past in which i was still frantically making cards on december 8th, and i do not miss that experience. not even a little bit! something i'd like to work on for next year: making more FLAT cards!!! (since this has been my goal every single year, since before i even started blogging, i am not exactly holding my breath, but i really need to TRY!)

page-wise, i've got a photo of my card pile, and i've pasted in one of this year's address labels. i love making a digital collage in photoshop with a bunch of brushes and things, then i save it as a .jpg and use broderbund's printshop to do a list merge with my address book. other than that, there are two-toned thickers and some chopped up dymo labels and everything's on a lovely sea of pink. what's not to like? another day DONE; wahey!♥
