I've made a Christmas card!!....

I haven't been idle these past two weeks I've been busy sewing making more fabric wreaths like I made last year and also a new patchwork advent calendar for one of my daughters....I also work as a volunteer one morning and one afternoon a week in a primary school now so dont spend as much time as I did crafting....

Onto my card... so many of you look like you are well ahead with making your Christmas cards me I've only just started!!  I bought this lovely little die set from Stampin Up called 'Sleigh Ride' so having an hour spare this morning before I dash off to Patchwork (who said you had more spare time when you are retired?) A very quick a simple card, backing paper is from my stash, the sentiment is from Stampin UP Winter Wonderland set....we also have to think about the cost of postage on our Christmas cards so the flatter the card the better I know some people have stopped sending cards but its all part of our Christmas tradition so I wont  stop sending cards

Thanks for stopping by hopefully I will have another card for you in the next couple of days...

It may have been a long wait to see one of your makes Anne - But it was worth it!! Terrific job here - great use of dies. x

Lovely card Anne and great colour combo. Right now you need to get busy and make all the other cards as well! I agree about the postage - I'm trying to make the ones I post as flat as possible otherwise it's going to cost a fortune but I do love having the cards on display at home so I can look at them however many times I want to - can't do that with e-cards!
