I started stalking the Pear Tree Greetings website almost two months ago waiting for the new 2011 Holiday card designs to magically appear! I was blown away as new designs were added. I really believe this set of designs is hands down the best offerings from PTG yet!
Every year I search for a card that perfectly captures the past year of our lives. Last year, I went pretty casual with our card and showcased many pictures about our new life with Kate! It was so fun to show off so many different pictures of Kate and how much she had changed in her first four months!
This year I am so torn on the best way to capture our year; how to share a piece of what 2011 has meant to our family. We have had such an emotional year filled with the joys of parenthood, the heartache of a life threatening disease, the agony of watching our baby girl fight for her life, and the miracle of a second chance - given to Kate by an anonymous donor.
Do I simply share an amazing picture of our miracle baby showing off her wonderful personality? Do I look for a card where I can "journal" a bit of what this year has meant? Do I try to find something that can showcase multiple pictures? Decisions, decisions...
Thankfully Pear Tree has a beautiful card to fit each of my possibilities. I've spent
I loved designing the Christmas Charms card! One of our family photos from June fit beautifully in the center and I love that it is an "all in one" card making it very easy to address and mail!
Personalizing the card was super easy too!
Ultimately, I decided to go with more of a "story board" card that allowed me to share the journey our family has been on this year. Y'all will have to wait until December to see the card we selected - I don't want to spoil the fun for our friends and family who will receive the card in the mail!!
