Christmas Card Designs!

We're back, and had an amazing time with family on vacay.  Thankfully, I'm married to a computer geek and he repaired my computer.  I don't know what I would have done without him.  Only down side is that I lost a few current projects I was working on, but think I've caught up.
A few of those projects were the afore mentioned, from previous post, Christmas card designs.  I just finished the recreation of one and added four others.  I have several VERY different designs to appeal to different tastes.  Please remember, text can be changed.  If sending photos, please make sure images are of highest resolution and email them to ashley (at) greatdaygraphics (dot) com.  I haven't had any issues with that email--YAY!  :)

One card serves dual purpose--it's a Christmas card AND birth announcement so you have only one set of cards to address.  Two birds, one stone anyone?  :)  This one is originally formated for 8.5x5.5.
Cards can be printed one of two ways, as of today.  I can create image and email you a final JPG, of which you can upload to a source such as Walmart, Snapfish, CVS, etc.  Prints should be roughly 10-12¢ a piece, but envelopes will have to be purchased seperately.  Price for image is $15.  If you would prefer that I print, assuming I have space in rotation, price for image is still $15, but you will get images printed on matte photo paper along with envelopes.  Price per piece is 60¢ with minimum order of 20 pieces.  I'm currently in the process of trying to find photo quality, textured cardstock that would make phenominal Christmas cards, but I'll let you know how that goes.  I also have a beautiful pearlescent cream/ivory cardstock, that would look lovely with the angel card--that's why it's background looks cream.  Price for cards printed  on pearlescent stock will be 75¢ per piece, and envelopes would be antique white/ivory.
Just contact me if you have any questions!  I should have Christmas applique designs up later this week!

Visit my Etsy shop for easiest purchasing for design only, or contact me directly for purchasing printed pieces.  Thanks, and have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

Technical Difficulties and Out-of-Town

So I'm going on vacay with family tomorrow bright and early, and I think my laptop computer's hard drive just crashed as I was finishing up some contract work. Great.

SO, if you email me at my new email addy, I'll reply upon our return at the end of the weekend. I was going to set up an automated replay, but obv can't do that now. Updating from Hubs' computer.

Wish me luck that my laptop isn't dead. At least I had a back up of all my info. Praise the Lord!

P.S. Only three weeks left in my schedule for orders that can be filled before Christmas/end of year!!! I will be posting a few Christmas applique designs and Christmas card designs at some point net week--probably end of next week, since I have to take my laptop to the Apple doctor on Monday. Not thrilled about that part, but hoping for the best.

Hope you're enjoying this most wonderful, and SUNNY, Sunday afternoon. Just wanted to let you all know that I'm switching my email, and I'm so excited! I feel that an email that has the business name after the @ looks so much more professional, you know?! What also makes this exciting is that my new email is associated with the new site I'm hoping to have up and running after the first of the coming new year!!! YAY! More on that later, but for now, the new email is:

ashley (at) greatdaygraphics (dot) com

Please let me know if you have any issues sending me an email. I initially had problems receiving Yahoo! emails, but I think that kink has worked itself out. If you don't receive an email from me within 48 hours, I probably didn't receive it. If not, you can always use greatdaygraphics (at) yahoo (dot) com as a back up.

When you add to your address book, please take out the (at), (dot) and spaces. This is done as a precautionary measure against spammers. Also, it is a good idea to add me to your email contacts. I've had experiences where I replied to an email, and the recipient didn't receive it because it defaulted to a spam folder. Don't let that happen to you! Plus, if you need to make orders in the future, you'll have my info in easy reach! :)

So, here's the deal, pickle...on CHRISTMAS!

First of all, I know I played hooky last week. I apologize! I'm so busy (thankfully), that I'm just trying to keep up! :) Wanted to share a few pics of things I've made, AND, most importantly, give a low down on what schedule we're looking at for the next few weeks leading to Turkey Day and CHRISTMAS!

So, here's the deal, pickle. I'm currently booked for the next week, then I'll be out on vacation until October 19th. That leaves FIVE weeks until the end of when I can COMPLETE orders. Last orders will be TAKEN ON NOVEMBER 13th, with last ship date hopefully being the 20th of November. I will not be able to do any last minutes Christmas gifts, as my baby boy's birthday is the first week of December and I MUST enjoy that time with him, as well as the entire Christmas season, which is my absolute favorite time of year.

Having set our deadlines, I can complete about 6 pieces a week--that's a total of 30 pieces (if no one in our family gets sick!). It will be first come, first serve! Reserve your spot NOW by placing your orders by emailing me at, and I'll guide you on how to complete payment. Places are not kept until payment is complete. I'll keep you up-to-date on where I stand with commitments--I think I'll add a calendar of sorts, on the right sidebar for quick glance reference. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks! And Happy Tuesday!
