Wow, hard to believe no one is responding to this thread!

Like the Dogs Roy!

Here is mine, from a photo shot last week in North Dakota, then put on card stock so I can write on the back.

Roy,

I guess it is just you and me!

Mine is on glossy paper also and the card stock is fairly thin but stiff enough to keep the photo from curling up. The photo paper has writing on it, which is why I used the card stock to give me some space to write on the back.

I like to personalize the cards instead of just buying some from a store, at least then people you send them to know you put some thought into the cards.

Seems like a great way to use the photos I take and share them with others.

Tom

my wife has taken to making cards recently - mainly christmas ones, but also generic ones - they're all different i've been pretty impressed with her creativity! she's taken some of my photos and had wallet size prints made and placed them on some of her cards - they turn out quite nice - sorry, they're hand made so no templates to post for viewing!

The few times I've tried to make cards, etc. they come out looking terrible (I have no artistic sense at all). I admire anyone who can come up with cards that are so creative or professional looking, like both Roy's and Tom's.

It took ustwo hours to get this picture. I did not print mine this year. But I was thinking about using some sort of heavy weight paper for next year.
