No I do not send cards but receive them at work from coworkers and my cousin also sends us one. I keep them at work than later store them away at home.

This year one coworker had a photo card of her, her daughter and grandson.

To those I receive from I give back thank you, thinking of you or new years greeting card.

We give them out at Church. We have a few that still need to get mailed but I don't know my dad's address so I have to figure it out before I send them out.

The ones we get are sitting on my desk right now.

I send out photocards to family and close friends, about 30.  I am a sahm so give a few to our neighbors and DH will take a few to work.  We have family that has moved across tha country, so this way they can still see how are kids change.  I have some one here that I sent regular holiday cards to.  I don't feel comfortable sending photocards to someone I don't know IRL.

The cards I get I display, either on a card holder like this:

or hang ribbon/string between a large opening and use the mini closthes pins to clip the cards to it.

 I have kept many cards I have received thru my life and its all in a storage tote. When my mother passed away and we went thru her stuff she had kept many cards for many occasions for over 50 years, many still in the original envelopes.
