Christmas Card 2014 - MDS Blog Hop

A bunch of us have joined together to share our passion for digital designing with Stampin' UP's My Digital Studio.  These ladies are SERIOUSLY talented in MDS and I am thrilled to be on this Blog Hop with them! You will find us blog hopping on the 2nd and 4th THURSDAYS of each month! We are a little early this month due to the holidays! ALSO we have a guest blogger this month of November! MONIKA DAVIS She is my dear friend and my "partner in crime" with our MDS biz. Believe me, she knows her MDS! So this blog hop is all about WHAT YA DOING in MDS?
Seriously I was wondering what to do for this blog hop when I looked at my calendar and realized that it was NOVEMBER 16th! Thanksgiving is next week! HOLY MOLY! I needed to get my butt in gear and get a holiday card designed asap! I gotta get them into the printer to get back in time to send out BEFORE Christmas!
I have been seeing alot of black, white, red and gold themed Christmas decorations out there! I find the color theme very elegant. So I was inspired by my visions of that decor for my design. To get the curve of white around the photo, I used the leaf punch blown up to get that perfect curve. You can see how I use it HERE as well on a calendar. I am also loving the long look of a postcard photo card. What is so great is that you get envelopes with these when you print thru Stampin UP! MDS print services! I plan to get this card printed for family, friends and church family this year so watch out some of you are getting a preview! LOL

Thanks for stopping by! I hope this inspires you to get your Christmas photo cards done ASAP

I don't think my first try at a comment went through. Your card is stunning, from the beautiful family photo, to the verse that says it all, to the sentiment and the lovely design and colors.

It looks like we were on the same wave length for what needed to be done this week in MDS. Family Christmas card it is! I just need good pictures and you already have one. Love your card! Thanks for letting me join you this month.
