Flashback Friday: Our Christmas Cards Through the Years...

Meows from Mudpie!

Mommy and I have been receiving so many beautiful cards from our friends in the blogosphere! The designs are all so creative and festive and they got us to thinking about our own Christmas cards through the years.

For 5 years we've had our cards designed by the amazing Ann at Zoolatry. In 2014 Mommy wanted her first official Christmas card to be a nod to her all-time favorite story, A Christmas Carol. Tiny Truffles Christmas Carol was born. Little did she know it would be Truffles' one and only Christmas card, making it all the more special to her...


In the summer of 2015 Mommy lost Truffles and by Christmas I was here but we still wanted Truffles to be a part of our card. What Ann created, little ol' me reading Tiny Truffles Christmas Carol by the fire, completely took our breath away...


2016's card was inspired by a Christmas card Mommy saw on Etsy featuring a kitty popping out of a plum pudding. She's a huge fan of all things British so we challenged Ann to recreate it, starring me of course...


In 2017 we didn't have any "big ideas" and decided on something simple, me sitting in front of a snowy window beside a stack of books and a coffee mug, just waiting for Mommy to come and cuddle...


Last year we decided on another snowy Vermont scene, this time with me sitting outside (brrrr...) on a vintage sled...


This year Mommy got adventurous and told me she wanted to design our card herself. To be perfectly honest, I was kind of worried she would end up embarrassing me terribly, but I must admit that she did a pretty good job! Those of you who participate in the cat bloggers card exchange have already seen it, and we'll be posting it here on Christmas morning!

Hope you enjoyed our walk down memory lane, and that you're having a joyous holiday season.

this was a clever idea and we loved seeing your cards! We could never do this because I have used the same card for at least the last 3 years MOL!
