Christmas Card Carousel

Am I the only one for whom it took 14 times to spell "carousel" correctly?!? Seriously, what a weird word. Thank God for spellcheck! HA!

So my bloggy friend Faith hosted "Christmas Card Carousel" while I was gone, but even though I am late, I am going to play along =-). I figure I am late to everything in real life, it just makes sense that it flows over into my blog life as well.
This year I bought our Christmas cards at the Christian Supply Store, and I just fell in love with them. I love how it says "JOY", and I just love the verse inside...spoke right to my heart. But after buying 3 boxes and filling them out and addressing them, I realized I came up 3 short. Instead of going out and buying another box and wasting so many (heaven forbid I use the same card next year!!), I remembered Liana has an Etsy store, and had plenty of beautiful, handmade cards!! So I ordered a set of those to complete my Christmas card list this year. It worked out perfectly, and went to such a great cause!!
So this is our Christmas card this year....simple but cute =)And then here is the inside:Ok I hope you all can forgive me, I know it is sooooo tacky that this card is filled out to Dave's cousin Korri, but since I had sent out every single card we had before I knew about this, I didn't save a spare to participate with! So this is one that came back in the mail...guess we need cousin Korri's new address!

The greeting inside says:
"In your heart and home,
in your Christmas too-
may the joy of Jesus
be a blessing to you!"

And that, friends and family, is truly my prayer for each and every one of you!!

The Scripture at the bottom says: "Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing..." Romans 15:13.

And then here's a pic of the beautiful cards I got from Liana:I think I will be ordering more cards from her in the future!!!

Alright, well thanks so much for stopping by!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Yay!! I'm so glad you joined in the fun! What a cute card and I love the message as well as the scripture from Romans...that is a verse I have been praying and claiming for over three years now. It always encourages my heart. And, how pretty are those cards from Lianna?? That is so sweet that you bought them from her. Love all your cards!!

Hope you are getting caught back up after your trip. Merry Christmas to you!!!

You're one up on me Little Sister. Just before I sat down to read your blog I was pondering how Noah and I could make some kind of photo/card for our blog as we didn't even send out cards this year. It's not that we didn't have a great photo of the three of us (um, we do) and it's not that we don't have cards (bought them last year after Christmas), I could say I was just being environmentally friendly and not sending them out, but I think the truth is,uh, yeah, I'm just lazy! :)

Cute cards, great verse!

Hey Kendra! It sounds like we have a little bit in common - I'm in my late 20's, I've been married 4 years, I love Jesus & my family, I <3 Starbucks, BUT I have 2 doggies (the size of cats, haha). Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you & your hubby have a Blessed Holiday!

Love both of your cards!! I'm the same way -- every year I think I have enough cards and somehow I always come up short! :)
Hope you have a Merry Christmas!!
