Brrrr Winter Arrived

Did you get snow yesterday? We did and for a while it was lovely outside, snow falling, everywhere turning white, really Christmassy.....and then the sun came out. This morning it is so cold that I know that Winter is here. More snow forecast today but we all know about weather forecasts.

Another Friday and the last weekend before Santa arrives. I hope that everyone has been good so that Santa brings them lots of pressies. The thing that I most want is a light box to take decent photographs, which you must all agree that I need. As you can see from these pictures, a light box would make everything look so much nicer. Here are some more handmade cards that I have received

This is from Helen

This is from Sandra

This is from Elvie

I was busy making Christmas cards for the most of November and December and there has got to be an easier way. How can I make myself get the cards ready throughout the year? Any help/advice would be most welcome. Next December I would love to go to a box, take out a card and write it, not rush around making them all.... is this to be a New Year's Resolution? Here is a photo of one of the cards I have sent out this year. I have used the Winter's Post and lovely as a tree stamp. I got the original idea from blog land and have just changed it. Lots and lots of glitter, well you have to as its Christmas.

Thank you for having a look and a read. If you have time to post a comment, I love to read them.
Be careful if you are out today, its very icy.
