How a racy "dudoir" Christmas card turned into a new funny card tradition (and an engagement!) #Features#christmas#engagement#engagement photos#holiday#humor Posted Dec 20 2018 Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Photos by: Loree Photography Photos by Loree Photography I heard a very silly tale that turned out to be pretty damned romantic that I just had to share. Alyssa saw a hilarious "dudoir" Christmas card that piqued her interest. This led to a new relationship, new tradition of creative Christmas cards, and an eventual proposal. Here's the whole tale from Alyssa herself… Steve was a bachelor who did a hilarious solo "dudoir" Christmas cards each year (see above!) while others around him sent out cards with babies and puppies. His sole reason was to make his friends and family laugh, but he received a lot more than that. Alyssa was at a friend's house and saw Steve's 2015 card on her fridge. She had to meet the man behind the creativity, and after a couple months Steve invited Alyssa into the tradition for the last two years. This Christmas is the third year, and the theme is…"Christmas 2018 has a nice ring to it." That's right, Steve proposed the day before the Christmas Card shoot! The chance spotting of Steve's Christmas card on a friends fridge has developed into wedding bells. D'awww. Sweetest, goofiest couple ever. Here's the original card and their latest card which was post-engagement… The put-a-ring-on-it card Photo by Loree Photography Previous year's collabs Thanks for sharing this with us, Alyssa!
