When we went in for our gender-revealing ultrasound appointment, I made a reversible sign that we could use accordingly. When we discovered we were having a son, we asked the technician to take our picture holding the sign saying, "It's a boy!" Then we e-mailed the photo to our friends and family to announce our news. So much fun!
I don't want to use this idea so much that it loses its effect, but couldn't resist taking the picture shown here to send to my father-in-law for his recent birthday. Needless to say, it was a hit!
The other thing I like about these homemade photo cards is that this cost me less than a quarter to make (beating out even the 99-cent Hallmarkcards), so not only am I sending a more personalized greeting, I'm also saving money. That works for me!
