 Holiday Greeting Card Contest | A Big Texas Merry Christmas | To New Home Owners in Texas

The POSITIVE ATTITUDE for the Weary Soul group gives you the opportunity to share your creative side during the holiday season with a creative writing challenge. Join in on the challenge with the  ActiveRain Holiday Greeting Card Contest!

My Greeting Card Entry! 

 From the Barbara Hensley Collection of Greeting Cards!

A Big Texas Merry Christmas!

 

 

This card was designed to send to my clients who moved to Texas this year.  I had several buyers moving to Texas this year and they all seemed to be interested in anything to do with Texas.  Some bought on acreage in the country and others in neighborhoods, but they all loved seeing the horses in the pastures as we were out & about looking for homes. 

This is one of my favorite pictures, taken in front of a past listing and I have sort of made this horse famous by using his picture many times.  Following are the details:

  • The picture was from one of my past listings.
  • I enhanced the photo in Picnik, adding the seasonal color, holly border and even some snow.
  • Card is a greeting card and will be mailed in an envelope.
  • I am sending to clients who moved to Texas during the year.

Thanks to this ActiveRain Contest, I now have the Barbara Hensley Collection of Greeting Cards!  I was so inspired by this contest that I am developing an entire collection of greeting cards.  I will share some of these at another time.

Judith - yep, we really DO have horses in Texas, even though most of us do not personally own a horse.  Enjoy your day in your Texas neck of the woods, Houston, another great place to live!

Anita - thank you. I did enjoy this contest and considered several entry ideas, but like the "Texas" one best to start with.  These cards will go out to my "Texas" buyers this week.

Barbara-  Horses are common in Texas but the snow not so much.  However I love when it does snow in Texas until I get out on the roads with all those crazy drivers.  The card looks great and I like how you personalized it to your new home buyers.  Good luck in the contest.....   Let it snow, let it snow... we need another white Christmas like last year!

Stephanie - Yes, everyone loves the horses.  I don't mind a morning of looking out at a snow covered yard, but then I am done and ready for it to be gone as I would rather not drive in it.  Enjoy your week.

Way to go! WOW! Lovely and simple. I like how "Texas" that it is! I wasn't going to do this contest but maybe I will, just for fun. I think I have 4 hours left.
