Card Woes (Japanese Family Not Included)

As the New Year's approaches, Juan and I are finding it very difficult to choose a good postcard. As you may or may not know, in Japan it is all about the New Years Cards. They arrive bundled in your mailbox on the morning of Jan 1st. This coming year will be the "Year of the Tiger". I guess the real problem is that Juan and I are not so fond of tigers. Don't get us wrong... We have nothing against them as a species, but we don't really have any affinity for them either. We are in such a pickle. The New Year's is quickly approaching and our cards need to be sent by the 20th in order to arrive to everyone all over the world by said day, but we just can't seem to find anything that yells "Hey... Jody and Juan want you to have a super duper 2010!!!"

I think in the end we will aim for the cute character cards because no one wants to awake on New Years Day to see a big scary picture of a tiger. Come on... you gotta at least have a cup of coffee before you see that kind of stuff!!!

Please enjoy the random assortment of cards I found online. I should say lucky enough to find and download on line. Everyone is so protective of their stuff nowadays. Anywhoo... Enjoy and let me know if you like any of these!!

As I was reading this, I thought, "You should do Tigger cards! Since you're not big on tigers." EVERYONE LOVES TIGGER!

Love you and Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary and Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah and Happy New Year!
