Sending Christmas Wishes - Homemade Ones

What is Christmas Without Cards? 


And who is a cardmaker without making them? Me, actually. This past year I was too poorly to make umpteen cards but I had the advantage of a few stashed away from earlier in the year. I told myself sending charity cards was fine, and indeed it was!

The Cards-I-Made-Earlier

This image was a freebie that I originally downloaded from Digistamp Boutique in 2010. I coloured it digitally before printing on gloss photo paper. Simply mat with a toning colour border, a few golden Card Candis from Craftwork Cards, add a greeting, and you have a sprightly number from the Davis House.

One of my favourite sources of quick cardmaking ideas and printouts is the CDrom called The Big One that I bought from La Pashe a while ago.
The next four cards originate from that CDrom.

Then, in November, I caught up with real life (following that virtual veil that serious ill-health brings down across your plans and discernment). Having allocated my charity cards (MS Trust) and the ones-I-made-earlier, I was left with five cards to make. What joy - just five cards and time to do so. How often can a crafter admit to that luxury?

As 2013 was meant to be my year of stamping, I decided to use the ones I've received with the Get Stamping magazines. I highly recommend this series if you want inspiration, advice and equipment.

The fifth card was for my husband - I'll try to bring the photo to you soon. Remind me if I don't.
