It doesn't look like I'm going to get myself together to take a special picture for our Christmas card this year. So I have been looking back at our pictures from the past year to see if I could find a good one.

First up is the ski lift chair from our house in Banner Elk, NC. On top of the shadows and squinty eyes, there is absolutely no way I could send out card with THAT HAIR on it. I was in bad need of visiting Judy, my miracle worker!
So I vote a big NO on this one!

Next up is from our visit to Cumberland Gap. But I really have no idea how to work Photoshop so I can't 'blend' the two photos.
So, again, a big NO!

I could do this awesome photo of Vol Fan stretching it out during the volleyball game!
Or this picture that I love!But where is The Incredible Woody?? Oh, yeah - here she is, looking like she is melting...

Or covered in squid juice and fish guts...





Maybe I should just go for the pre-packaged cards........

You are doing better than I am since I am not sending out cards this year...maybe I will be different and send cards in January. Decided to not stress myself out with anything more right now and I don't even feel guilty...lol.

Good luck on your card choosing. I do like your pictures though...looks like you and Vol Fan have lots of fun together.

I think all of those pictures are great! Make a montage of the year and sent them out. Or go to Petsmart like I'm gonna do, and I have to borrow a dog.

I don't have photoshop but if I did, I would remove your husbands shirt. No, I didn't say that.

I say send the bloopers and ask family for a professional shot next year. :)
or have a neighbor over tonight and do a couple of shots by the Tree. ;)

Great shots! And they all make a wonderful card! You did better than me. But I will get in "Merry Christmas Babe!"

My favorite is you in the melting one : ). Sometimes we think we look bad but other people think we look good in pictures. You really look nice there. You are very pretty : ). I have my cards all made. I paid 9.99 extra to have them done in one hour. I have NO idea why I did that since they have been sitting on my kitchen table for 6 days...

I'm with smiles4u - no cards being sent from Casa de Envy this year. Too stressful! It will give me more time to bake - which I LOVE:)

I absolutely love these pictures! I wish I could tell you how to merge them, but I'm pretty much of a technical idiot. Had you already guessed that?? Heehee!

Who needs Photoshop. Cut Vol Fan out of his picture and stick him on your picture (with double sided tape). Scan the new creation, print as many as you want and you are all set. Don't forget to send me one.
