The Perfect Card

I demanded perfection, and so for an hour, I riffled and speed-read through rows and rows of cards. My work was cut out for me, and lo and behold, with patience and perseverance, I found them -- the perfect card for each of my loved ones around the table tomorrow night.

For Sue, our Godsister:

A velvety purple-blue card with a Christmas tree cut-out with the sentiment:

For our Godsister,
If we didn't have you for a sister,
We'd have missed some wonderful times
and the knowledge that the best of friends 
are found in families.
Merry Christmas, Godsister!

For Samara & Jonathan, our Goddaughter and Godson-in-law:

A gold, red and black dramatic graphic artwork with the sentiment:

Christmas is the Time, 
Family is the Gift.
For a special Goddaughter and "Godson"
Wishing you love at Christmas.

For Alana, our Goddaughter:

A twirling skater with dreamy, swirly artwork with the sentiment that describes her perfectly:

For a special Goddaughter,
In our family,
there was some cuteness
that grew into grace
(you can see it in the photo albums),

There was some drama
and a lot of loud laughter
(you can almost hear it still).

In our family,
there was a daughter who was a gift
to everyone who knew her
(and she still is).
Merry Christmas.

For DH: 

A green card with pine trees and a single metallic copper cabin with the sentiment:

for my husband
love is ours
yours and mine
(red heart)
sounds so sweet
feels so fine
smiles so big
shines so bright
lights our day
warms our nights
love's a world
meant to share
love is home
we live here.
