Photo Christmas Cards

So... it's that time of year once again. The ponies resemble Cousin It from the Adams Family, the snow flurries are accumulating and the bell ringers are outside Walmart. Which means it's time to get the Christmas cards sent!

BUT - There's no SNOW yet. Which means I have no winter wonderland setting to take pictures of the ponies for the card. The good news is the forecast is finally calling for snow tonight so I might be able to snap some shots tomorrow.

Now, I just need ideas. Anyone do photo Christmas cards? Suggestions? Examples? Let's see what ya got!

We do them in my family but we haven't involved our horses since I got my pony when I was 8 lol.

This year, since my siblings and I all play musical instruments, our Christmas picture is my with my hands over my ears sitting in a chair with my flute in my lap, my youngest brother with his trombone, my sister with her flute, and my other brother with his bass behind me all blasting away.

Ahhh! I actually started working on a Christmas card tonight! Sadly my horse wasn't being very photogenic :(

This is what I have so far and the original picture I worked with :( would LOVE any suggestions! I thought it would be fun to do it with my own horse till he decided to not be photogenic the one time I actually need a good pic!!! Last pic is for my trainer, I made her some holiday gift certificates haha

If need any help making the pics into cards let me know, I'm always bored at night and love making stuff

I think the caption on the 7th picture should be "aand a partriiidge in a peeaarr treeee!"

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
