Our Christmas Card 2013 - Part 2

Christmas Card 2013 - Part 2 

A few months back while looking around for card inspiration I found this photo prop idea from Sara-Anne Photograpy.

Ain't this cute!
We have a similar Little Tikes car we found on our local Freecycle back in the spring.  It is missing a door but you can't complain about free, right?  Ours had a yellow top though and yellow doesn't really say "Christmas" so I decided the little coupe needed a paint job.

After spray painting the top white, the red didn't really 'pop' so that got spray painted, too.  Then I hounded Hubz to find us a tree for the top.  At first, he came back with a limb.  Literally.  

A limb.


Back to the woods he went and came back with a decent baby tree for the project.  Yes, a tree was harmed in the making of this picture.  Don't tell.

Once everything was painted and the tree had been found, I asked Hubz to take Bean out one afternoon and snap some pictures.  

Ladies, let me just give you some advice here.  Never ask your husband to be in charge of getting the Christmas card picture.  Never.  It's not a good idea to leave them in charge of something so important.  If you do, you might wind up with something like this.

Pinkie and The Bean

Not what I was going for.

I decided I should take over then and Bean enjoyed her second photo shoot, too.  After settling on the image I wanted, I used Picmonkey.com to add some Christmas cheer to it.

This is the picture used for the inside of our cards.  Merry Merry!
