Here we go again!

Afternoon blogging buddies.

Yet another one to show you.....it was so nice to see from your comments that you are not, after all, sick of seeing my Christmas cards, that was nice to know, thank you all so much, I really do appreciate your lovely comments.

  I have to confess though,  I will be glad to see the back of them, I do so wish that I enjoyed making them, but for some reason, I just don't, I'm also making more than I am actually showing you here so I am really getting stuck in!

I think I may take the advice that one or two of you mentioned, and that is to make them all year round so as not to have such a run at it this close to 'the day', I think I might give that a try next year.

So here we go.... as usual, challenges and recipe below.

Another beautiful card Jacee. I never make Christmas cards. I just buy the charity ones and then there is no pressure.

I love the papers you use Jacee and this is a fun image.
I never used to make christmas cards before November when it became a struggle to get them all done, but this year I have been making them all year and it nice for it not to be a chore.There are plenty of christmas challenges that run all year as well to provide incentive and inspiration.

Another gorgeous card hon... no one would ever know that you didn't enjoy making Christmas cards! I'm afraid I have to confess.... apart from family and special people... I tend to buy my cards! That's something I can never resist... I go in the likes of M & S or Morrisons... and they have such beauties I always end up getting some!

Why don't you join our friendly Christmas Card Club, we create a card once a fortnight to a theme and post it on our blogs. It really does help get them made without the last minute rush. Here is a link to Margaret's blog, she coordinates the CCC, leave her a comment asking to join and tell her Lorraine sent you.

Hi Jacee I could never tire of seeing your cards they always bring me so much inspiration and delight, but I know what you mean about making a lot of Christmas themed cards, that is all I seem to be making these days, I didn't make hardly any last year so I am determined to have enough to go round this time, lol. Jacee I apologise for rabbiting on I just have to tell you that I love, love this beautiful card the image is superb so is the design a truly wonderful make.

nwilliams6 said...

Another totally fabulous Christmas card - so wish I was on your list! I have tried making them all year, making them all at once, and making them at the last minute (I never recommend that one) but it really doesn't make much difference - it is still trying to come up with different ideas so you don't get totally bored! This year, I am going to try and make a bunch of the same type of card and have friends come over to help me (drink hot chocolate, listen to Christmas music, eat cookies, and laugh) - I am hoping that makes it more fun. Love your card. Hugz

Oh I think this is my favourite Jacee! Just love it! That Father Christmas is delightful. Sorry that I haven't been around for a while but its that time of the year again when I leave for Cape Town and I have tons of things to do, finishing scrap books, jewellery and quilts etc. and of course I leave everything to the last minute!
