Got your Christmas Cards yet? =)

FFXI Christmas Cards 2010 by Lurazeda

Maiev and Otak’s 2010 Christmas Cards!

Holy, this blog is alive!

I haven’t posted for 9 months. Yes, swamped with various tasks :< but finally done with most of them, including writing my Christmas Cards! I've made 5 version of this card. The front is all the same :) An art piece drawn by Otak name “Let it Snow Let it Snow!” It was a Christmas drawing prepared one year ago lolz! Of course, the Taru you see infront is Mai and Otak :)

4 Versions are BIG! The last version is tiny ones :P Hay! Doesn’t mean you’re less important if you get the small one! :D

Inside is… personalized! You’ll have to get yours to find out :) I wrote it in red! Don’t take it wrong! I did it purely for festivities! Also, red is a lucky color! Maybe I’d win the Mog Bonanza for writing cards!

Infront of the cards, is Otak’s 2010 Christmas present for Mai :D All those little dolls :D She knew I didn’t buy those little Shantotto FFXI taru set, so she made me Otak and Mai :D! <3 Anyway! The cards are already on its way to various places around the globe. Some went to JP, some went to Europe, but most of them are just going to United States =) of course, one is heading to Hong Kong (I wonder who '.')! Just want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas =) & and Happy New Year! I'd be doing some traveling so by the time most of you get your card, I won't actually be here to see your reaction, but you can always leave a comment that I would be able to check on random computer terminals =) I'd love to read all those comments ;D! One last thing! Sorry if I missed you :< I went through like 2k comments on my blog to ensure I didn’t miss anyone ‘~” or I try :O! There’s always another chance! I love to do cards (though it takes a hella a lot of time!) so don’t you worry!

Merry Christmas!

On the side: The Christmas 2008 Cards =) Nekeed Taru :D
