Some of you may know that earlier this week I wanted to enter the challenge over at
The Play Date Cafe Challenge # 58 but sadly I missed the deadline!!! I posted my card on my blog anyway and received some lovely comments from the designers over at PDCC - so thank you all very much for that.
SO this week I was determined that I wasn't going to miss it! This is the inspiration photo - how lovely and the colours of the challenge are rich red and fresh white - gorgeous. The DT cards are stunning BTW.
and this is my entry
and this is a close up
The card blank, scallop red square, sentiment, tree and bauble are all from Craftwork Cards. The ribbon and snowflake are from my stash.
So thats another xmas card made and added to my pile to send out! Still got about another 15-20 to make. I send around 50-60 cards each year (and yes I hand make ALL of them) in fact since I've been making cards, and with my hand on my heart - I've NEVER purchased a shop bought card for any occasion - call me stubborn but I just don't - I HAVE to make it myself. On the xmas card front this year I feel I've got off lightly as in previous years I've done craft fairs where I've made up packs of cards and have made between 400-500 cards! This year I haven't done any craft fairs and am not feeling phased by the amount I've got to make - ROFL!!!
I would love to know how many cards you hand make for Xmas? Also do you ever purchase ready made cards?
Thanks for popping by and happy crafting!
