address labels

since deer are so cool this year, i decided to design the address labels for our xmas cards:

of course, that isn't our names or our address, but you get the picture. i really like the look of square address labels. really, i just get tired of the same ol' rectangle;)

anywho, if you are interested in some (either like these or you have an idea for a custom design), let me know and i'll see what i can do. i love graphic design.
