Janthina Images Christmas Card Selections & Christmas Everywhere!

Christmas Everywhere

Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight!
Christmas in lands of the fir-tree and pine,
Christmas in lands of the palm-tree and vine,
Christmas where snow peaks stand solemn and white,
Christmas where cornfields stand sunny and bright.
Christmas where children are hopeful and gay,
Christmas where old men are patient and gray,
Christmas where peace, like a dove in his flight,
Broods o’re brave men in the thick of the fight;
Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight!
For the Christ-child who comes is the Master of all;
No palace too great, no cottage too small.

Phillips Brooks
 

Phillip Brooks lovely sentiment is displayed on my Big Cypress Egret Christmas Card and so it is that Chrismas IS Everywhere from the swamps of Southern Florida to white and snowy climes up North!

With today’s post comes a little seasonal reminder that Janthina Images has 5 x 7 folded Greeting Cards available at it’s Gallery Site. The Greeting Cards for Sale Online   gallery displays four Christmas or Holiday selections at the beginning of the gallery which are print ready.  The rest of the displayed cards could be gift selections for friends who enjoy birds, lighthouses, or natural scenes. The cards can be purchased as one card, a box of 10 of the same image, or a box of 25 of the same image.  Additionally, at the Selected Images for Sale  gallery, you can utilize the Create-A-Card feature, to select an image along with a template for your own creation.

Please find below three of the Christmas/Holiday cards as different ideas to consider. Clicking on the card image will take you to the order gallery with that card selected. I wanted to send a reminder now as even though the print company must have elves working into the wee hours every night, there still needs to be time for ordering and printing to secure a timely arrival.

Big Cypress Swamp Egret Christmas Card

If an everglades swamp scene is to your liking, this card features a White Egret set in the Big Cypress Swamp beside lovely, watery reflections! The background has a natural earthy feel and features a natural, grungy type font to carry the theme.

White Egret - Big Cypress Swamp - Christmas

This print layout view shows the inside of the Big Cypress Egret Card with Phillips Brooks lovely poem Christmas Everywhere inside with plenty of room to write your own message in the lower section. When some friends stated emphatically that the everglades swamp was not very Christmas’y  (that only a white snow laden landscape with deer would do) I differed just as emphatically! Christmas IS Everywhere, including the swamps of Florida as much as the northern climes!!

Key West Light Christmas CardThis Key West Lighthouse Christmas Card is described in a previous post with some directions on how to put it together if you wanted. Clicking on either of these two images , the front or the inside, will take you to the Greeting Card Gallery  where you can order as shown here.

Boca Grande Holiday Card

Boca Grande Lighthouse is pictured here all decked out in lights for the holidays. The evening I spent standing on the beach at Gasparilla Island with the waters of Charlotte Harbour lapping gently behind me and shooting post sunset during the blue hour is a very easy memory to recall. It was just so lovely and serene being there enjoying the quaint lighthouse. I could mention there were mosquitoes, but I’ll leave that out 🙂 !! The inside of this selection is blank with just a soft natural texture with nautical compass roses, as you see in the front and is ready for your hand-written note. Bernard Romans’ 1774 map of the region where the lighthouse sits, decorates the back of the card.

With Sincere Thanks and Wishes for a  Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Oh, gosh! That Boca Grande Lighthouse is just splendid! It makes me want to put lights up myself – though my setting isn’t nearly so grand.

    Thanks for the reminder. WIth Thanksgiving so late this year, time is getting short!

    • Boca Grande is truly a lovely spot. All of Gasparilla Island is beautiful and amazing. The lighthouse does have a museum and gift shop for visitors and the lighthouse is an active navigational aid. It is a great visit destination for anyone visiting Florida’s west coast, expecially if you love lighthouses and history.

      Yes the holidays are upon us and here in Florida we have some cold weather on the way. Thanksgiving will have temperatures in the 50’s I hear with highs in the low 70’s…..looking forward to the seasonal change!! The freshness makes you feel more alive!!

  2. I love the egret!

    • I was rather fond of its setting with the perfect reflections. That egret was in the Big Cypress Preserve area along the Tamiami Trail. Lots of perfect little scenes there. Oddly there is so much traffic on the trail and the birds sit tight. But, should you dare sneak off along the side of the road and open your car door even very quietly…everyone scatters!!

  3. I like that.

  4. Judy, your photography only gets better and more breathtaking!

    • Wow! Thanks for stopping by and commenting!! And what a wonderful thing to say!! Most appreciated and really made my day!

      Happy Thanksgiving to You and Your Family!!
