Christmas Card Design

I have been thinking of the design that I will be using for my Christmas card this year. I, for the 4th year now, is using my own designed cards. and I am lucky that i have an early snow when i came to visit the wonderful family of JC Jr. in Tillsonburg, Ontario last week.

And JC agreed that it is a good picture for the cover. Now, hopefully he can help me figure out what will be the dedication inside. The first two years, I have my friend in Taiwan helped me. Last year it was sad I did it on my own. Nobody cared to help... Just kidding! and luckily this year I have JC to help me. Yehey!...

the one on the left will be used. although the sepia version (R) is also beautiful.

rest of the pictures are posted on my other blog. 
link is below this post.

Hoping that we will be able to do it on my next visit, so I can do the final draft and have it on for printing. it must be send the last week of November or else; or else it would be late for Christmas and they might think it's an early valentines card, hahaha!.. I will be sending it to friends and relatives back home in the Philippines. And special people here in Canada and around the world!..

oh how fun it is to think
of the holiday season.
Christmas lights
candy cane
gifts under the tree
unending invitation for parties
nights outs

but for people away 
from families and love ones
it is a sad season of the year.

what brings us happiness
is to know that they are fine
in good health 
and happy. 

sooner or later
Sacrifices will surely be rewarded.
true love is doing the right thing
even if it is the hard one.

and not that I don't mind it
but I am willing to do this
for my the love of my family. 

I love you all!
God bless us!

  1. ParengJJ,
    Bless you! That's the way. Being overly aware and being prepared so that you can send the Yultide wishes in good time. The snow and all is a perfect image! Excellent verse!


  2. Very lovely thoughts for the holiday season.

  3. Great verse and great pic for a card too.

  4. nice..i think it will make a great card...and it is fun to think of the holidays...i hope this one brings you joy

  5. pretty card :)
    the sepia version is beautiful too.

  6. My vote would go to the sepia version, but hey! anyone would be proud to receive either.

  7. hi jj...i know how lonely it is to be spending christmas away from home. "surely your sacrifices will be rewarded" because of your good intentions for your family...i love the pic for your christmas card. i've been away for a few days here in a country where it is freezing cold too but no snow yet. (i thank the Lord for this blessing). it is only now that i got to read the blogs...take care...

  8. Wow! I'm impressed. Jilda has painted our Christmas cards for many years. She does a simple watercolor but they are always beautiful.

  9. Very pretty. I like your choice, : )

  10. Either shot is beautiful, and I love your verse.
