FYI, for those that participate, you may want to mail your cards earlier than you normally do.
The USPS has delayed mail service delivery this year.

My sister sent me something, she lives in the MW, it normally takes 3 days for me to get something mailed from her.

It took a week this time.

It's so exciting finding a special card in the mailbox. This is a pic off cards from 2017. All styles are fab!

Wow, how do you make those cards with the Goldens on them? Looks interesting!
There are many companies and photo places (Shutterfly, Staples, Walmart Photo Dept, Walgreens.....)that let you make a photo card. I've usually found Wal-Mart to be the most affordable.
You can also print your own at home and draw or paint the pic you want.

I get mine done at Walmart each year. I get to thier site and go to the photon department
and select the design you want and follow instructions. Or go to the store. Theses are
just 3 of the many I have had done. The top one is from last year, my Great Pyrenees, Princess Jewel. The next is my last golden retriever, Miss Sophie, and Great Pyrenees, Sir Moose, and the bottom is just Sir Moose. All of these were adopted seniors. Sophie is the only golden retriever I have been able to adopt due to no rescue near me that cn do a home visit, so I was not allowed to adopt. Luckily, the Pyrenees rescue had someone here to do a home visit, and I am now on my 4th senior Pyrenees, an 11 year old I got 2 weeks ago.
It is great fun exchanging cards and I look forward to getting them and putting them on display in my entry hall. I lost my husand of 55 y ears a year and half ago. he also looked forward to getting those cards from all around the country, and some from overseas as well. It is fun.
