Christmas Cards

There is a tradition in my family for homemade Christmas cards.  My mom has made cards since well before I was born, maybe even back into the 1950s.  We get a hand made card every year.

I made my own cards for about a decade, though I haven’t done any in quite a while.  Unfortunately I can’t find several of the photos I used, but I did find the majority.  I could only find an already printed card for one year, but I scanned it in.  You can see the whole front of that card at the top of the page.

I always used the pictures of our cats, Bartelby and Claudius, on the back of every card.

I previously put up a post about the photo and the painting based on the photo of the back-lit bulb that appears to be glowing.  These were used two different years.

So here are some of the images I used for my past Christmas cards (click on a picture for detail and to see the “slide show”):
