Ordered our Kind Of Politically Correct Christmas Cards this morning! - How I'm Wishing our Uber-Liberal Friends a Politically Correct Christmas This Year


This morning when I grabbed my first cup of strong, hot, black coffee (brewed at the 6 oz. setting on my iCoffee brewer so it would nice and strong) I wasn't sure what the day held.

I knew I wanted to avoid most of the news - it's just leftover from yesterday's election results and a bunch of people experiencing some knee-jerk reactions to Mr. Trump being the next President... and I'd rather wait for everyone to settle down a bit before I jump back into that circus of reading.  Since I wasn't knee-deep in news stories, I checked my email accounts and such and then...  decided to browse some Christmas Card ideas.

This year I've just not been inspired.  Some years I make them myself.  Other years I design them myself online and order them.  This year I couldn't find a design that caught my eye; but I didn't have any design I wanted to create either.  For the last couple weeks I've just browsed a bit (in local retail stores craft departments as well as online) and then today... it just came together.

I found a card template online that felt right.  I added some photos and text.  The front was done.

Now for the back of my card.

About 2 (?) years ago I found this little ditty somewhere on the net (Lord knows where... it's all over by now) and saved it to my files.  I forgot all about it until I was getting ready to write this years Christmas letter (more on those at a later date) and saw this again.

PERFECT.

So my friends...  if you are getting a card from us this year, you will find this on the back of it.  Changed a tiny bit from the original I had saved in my files 'way back when' but yep; this is what is being sent this year.  Yes, it's packed with a bit o' tongue in cheek sarcasm, but I suppose only the witty will get it.
