Christmas Card Carousel 2015

Hello there blog land! I know I've been absent this year, but we have been so, so busy soaking up every single moment, and just living. I have missed this sweet community though, and I have been very much looking forward to this day. Today, I'm linking up with Faith from Walk With Me By Faith for a fun Christmas Card Carousel! This will be my 4th year linking up, and every year, I thoroughly enjoy looking at every one else's sweet Christmas cards! Thank you Faith for keeping up this fun holiday tradition!
 I didn't think it was possible to top last year's Christmas cards, but I should have known better. My friend Holly, owner of Artsy Occasions, never ceases to amaze me! She is my go-to gal for any invitation, card, announcement, party favor, decor... you name it- she does it. And does it well! We always get so many compliments on the things we send out, and it's all thanks to her. 
 I knew that this year, I wanted something different. Something fun. Something out of the box. But I didn't quite know what. I had already decided which picture I wanted to use- it was one of my favorites from our family photo session we had this fall. It was actually an impromptu picture that we did while trying to get Crew to smile, that stinker! And, it turned out cuter than I could have ever imagined!

I knew I wanted the picture to take up the entire card this year. I also wanted a fun shape. We've done square. We've done rectangle. We've done round. So, when Holly mentioned the unique scalloped shape, I couldn't pass it up. I'm telling ya'll, she's amazing! She even suggested that adorable picture for the back. Isn't it perfect?!
I always like to keep the message short and sweet, but still fun. Holly has some of the best quotes and fonts, and when I saw this one, it fit the picture to a T. She even carried the design over onto the envelopes, and used the same scalloped shape for our return address.
I couldn't be happier with the finished result, and as I always say... I don't know how we'll top these next year! Of course, I also have to thank Jenae with A Perfect Pixel Photography for our fabulous family pics! The cards would not have been the same without them! 
And, a big thank you to everyone who sent us a Christmas card this year, I love displaying them in our kitchen. Something about Christmas cards just gets me in the holiday spirit! I anxiously rush to the mailbox in anticipation during the month of December! So fun!

And now, here's a look at the 2015 Slater Christmas card...
