DVD Covers released for: "The Christmas Ornament" and "A Very Merry Mix Up"

Cameron Mathison and Kellie Martin's Christmas Movie: "The Christmas Ornament" is one of the first Christmas movies from the Hallmark Channel's 2013 Christmas Season, to be released on DVD!

Here's the official DVD cover:

The DVD cover from Alicia Witt's Hallmark Channel Christmas Movie "A Very Merry Mix Up", has now been released, too!

Here is the official DVD cover:

My thoughts:
Both covers are beautiful, I think, and complimentary to each other. Very Christmassy, as well!
If the images above are familiar to you, then you would be right! These are the same posters the Hallmark Channel released last year in promoting the films. I personally don't mind, at all. Both movie posters are lovely and deserved to be the official DVD covers! On their own, both images already tell a story!
If you are considering purchasing one or both of the DVDs, I would be appreciative if you would consider ordering from my site. Thank you, Net

Behind the Scenes:

Summer Snow was written and directed by brother and sister Jeremy and Kendra White, who are both graduates of Asbury College (a Christian University), for American Family Studios. It was filmed in several places in Central Kentucky.
