A Very My Digital Studio Christmas: Take Two

I hope to have some more previews from the Occasions mini to show you later in the week.  But for right now, the Christmas Crazies are in full swing around here.  I really need one more day between now and Christmas but since that's NOT going to happen, I'm starting to take things off my list -- like sleep.

I try to send out a hand-stamped Christmas card to all my friends and family at least every other year.  Since they pretty much all got one last year, I decided to cheat a bit this year, and design a traditional photo card instead using My Digital Studio.

Colors: Cherry Cobbler, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White.  My Digital Studio Kit: Savor the Season
This went together very quickly.  I used the 5x7 postcard to start the project and used one of the photo layouts that My Digital Studio already provides and modified it a titch.  I love that I could include pictures from several of the big events in our lives this year but also a nice family portrait. 

I will admit that I cheated just a bit too.  Instead of using Stampin' Up's fabulous print service, I uploaded it to a big box photo center and ordered 5x7 prints.  That's another great thing about My Digital Studio: for the best prints, you can order direct from Stampin' Up! but you can also print from home or use a different photo service.

I hope you all have a wonderful week and that you can take time during this busy season to remember the important things in your life too.
