Christmas Cards

I have been creating a few special Christmas cards to take to a woman's Christmas Party tomorrow night to a few of my friends and must get my addresses on others in the next couple days... Last evening we went with another couple to Ft. Wayne to meet another couple, old friends, and enjoyed a lovely and delicious dinner and conversation with them.... The trip was nice with a few snow flurries in the air and viewing Christmas lights on the way home was very enjoyable.
I am off to finish the 5 special Christmas card folders .... Christmas cards are so charming and lovely to receive... If you possibly can add a hand written note to each one to make it a personal message... Christmas cards have been around since 1843.... when the first Christmas card was designed.... by J.C. Horsley... In 1846 thousands of cards were printed and sold to the public. Christmas card have been produced by giants like Hallmark every since.....

I am sorry to say that I send fewer & fewer over the years. With email not many people send cards.... Too bad.... because Christmas Email takes the personal our of it!!
Have a Great Day!
Love,
Marilyn

I am sure your cards will be lovely Marietta! I do still send Christmas cards, but it seems to be fewer every year, but there are some I will always send to. I just think it is more special than sending an email. I have always been a card person though too. Love the old cards especially!!

Marietta, MERRY CHRISTMAS to you! I know I am not the first to wish you a wonderful time in preparation of our Saviors birth but none could be AS heartfelt...
Blessings, Sharon
