Happy Holidays!!

After seeing a lovely holiday card at Jodi's blog, which she made with PowerPoint, I was reminded that another friend of mine also makes holiday cards with PowerPoint.  So, inspired by the beauty of their cards, I set out to make one of my own!  The resulting card is the one below and I think it came out pretty good for my first try!!

The picture is one of the only pics I have of us, and it was taken a long time ago. We still look like that, plus about 8 years, give or take a year. I used a clip-art background, added the picture, and made the "Warmest Wishes this Holiday Season" part with Photoshop and added it as an image.

So, with Christmas quickly approaching, I hope you all have a very happy holiday! Drive safe and eat too much, that's what we intend to do!


  1. It's amazing for a first card--you are obviously already a pro! If you ever decide to make cards to mail out, you do have to make adjustments to the images in order to get them to a standard 5 x 7, or else parts of your card can be accidentally cropped out. That's the only thing I needed to warn you about. But as far as making strictly digital cards, you can stick with whatever size you want. This card came out SOOO pretty. I actually showed Clint too, and he liked it a lot.

    Have a great Christmas tomorrow Kristyn and I hope you were able to get that last minute gift for your inlaws!

  2. Nice Job!!! I would have never thought of using PowerPoint for cards! Hope you and Matt had a WONDERFUL holiday!

  3. Thanks, Jodi, for the pointers! Maybe next year I'll make cards, have them printed, and mail them out!

  4. Thank you, Shawn! I really wouldn't have thought of it either, had Jodi not inspired me to do so. I think it came out really nice for my first try!
