Have you started on your Christmas Cards...

...after all, there's only 304 days to go.

Every year I am determined to be better organised with my Christmas cards and every year I'm panicing at the last moment to get enough done LOL

Well I've actually got three done...
I found a couple of card blanks that I'd been playing with - I had lightly brushed a Broken China Distress Ink pad over the surface to create a sort of marbled effect. What I wanted was some quick and easy ideas for cards and ones that wouldn't cost a fortune to post (especially as postal charges are set to jump this year).
A bit of playing with some patterned stickers, peel-offs, hand made paper, snowflake brads and of course some stickles and I have 3 cards ready to go in the box.

I must try to do at least a couple a month in addition to any of the more dimensional ones that I will be making thoughout the year. Best laid plans................................................

I set myself a challenge at the start of the year - that I would do something "christmassy" on the 25th of each month .. so last month I started my christmas cards - and tomorrow, I'll make some more.
