Phew! In the Post

 Hi Crafters,

I have just put my last Christmas card in the post box today, phew!

Although I make Christmas cards all-year-round these go on to my stall at markets so everything else is made after that but it is done now and I can relax somewhat.

It has been an intense card making session over several days to get finished but all my Design Team friends should have received or will receive their cards in the next day or so.

Thank you to everyone who has sent me a card also, I know what goes into making them and really appreciate the time taken. I keep all the handmade cards that I receive in a memory album to display them.

This card was for a swap partner from the Gecko Galz and as she has received it today I am safe to share.

Mixed Media Background - Distress oxides, Trellis and Star Stencils, Texture Paste, CE Enigma Stamp
Image - Lindsay Mason Designs Stamp - Winter Wonderland Snowman
Decoupaged and Coloured with Promarkers & Copics
Die-namics Stitched Scalloped Basic Edge Dies
Marianne Designs Sentiment Die

Challenges I'd like to enter:
CHNC Every Saturday - #572 ATG Christmas
Country View Challenges - Christmas ATG
Sparkles Christmas Challenge - #131 Non Traditional Colours

Ally's Angels - #53 ATG

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy the rest of your Tuesday.

I absolutely adore this cute, mixed media card! The snowman is so stylish and Lorraine has made his little nose and even the tiny buttons 3 dimensional - amazing! I am so lucky to have this card on display in my living area - thank you, Lorraine. xx

The last of my cards got sent out today too. These were for friends going back years that we keep in touch at Christmas and Birthdays with a written note enclosed. fingers are not working too well at present and just 3 took me all day to write a few lines.So glad my cards had all been made earlier in the year. Hope you can now relax a bit before the last rush. hugs Mrs A.
