When it comes to choosing seasonal cards, there is usually only one choice: mine. I have always enjoyed making my own. I've done iris folding cards, pop-out cards, strange marbelized paper cards....you name it, I've done it!! This year I've been feeling a little *bleh* about making my own. With the craft fair looming and my blog becoming a much more permanent part of my day, I'm feeling like a just don't have time to devote to it. So, I've been talking myself through this process and here's what I've come up with: There is nothing un-crafty about photo cards, because you are using your art (the photos) to make them. To make a nice card there has got to be the perfect picture (or pictures) to make the whole card work. That takes craft!! I have sufficiently convinced myself that Photocards are good and therefore I can do them. ;-)
