Since 1974, two years before we moved to  the country, I  have been making our Christmas Cards. I always pick as a theme something that has gone on in our life this past year. In the early years of cardmaking I drew or cut out fabric for e.ach card.  But since 1995 I have been painting a 5"x7" picture and having Kinko make sheets of 8- 2 1/2"x 3 1/2" prints. so much easier! I then cut them out and make my cards from cardstock. In the early days I made about 100  but now it's about 225. I keep the collection on this banner and hang it on the pantry door in the kitchen during the Christmas season. The cards give me a great deal of pleasure as I see them daily.
