Neighbourly Xmas!

Morning blogging buddies.

Today I'm showing you the cards I've made for our neighbours.

As you know, I'm not mad keen on making Christmas cards, so this is always the biggest task each year.

I always include something significant to everyone here in our road, be it the number of each house, their names, the name of the street, something like that, this year it's our street name, I've added this to each postbox, which of course I've blurred out for the sake of the photo's, couldn't fit them all in to the photo either unfortunately, but you get the drift. 

I'm so glad I've got those all done and dusted, and the good news is I'm pretty much done with all my cards now, just a couple more left to do.....thank goodness!

I'm all done with my gifts now too, everything is bought, wrapped, and put away, I do like to be organised. 

So onward and upwards, lets get on to showing you these cards.

As usual, card recipe below, hope you like them and thanks for dropping by.

These cards are fantastic Jacee, love the red and white and the fact that they are so personal to each neighbour. Love the design, I've just finished about five cards using this lovely layout too.
You are very organised to have finished nearly all your cards and gotten your presents bought and wrapped, well done, you can sit back and enjoy from now on.
Take care,
Lorraine

Eve Maynard said...

Hi Jacee
Firstly congratulations for being so organised with your Christmas cards and presents - you have inspired me to get a move on!! LOL!!

Your cards are absolutely stunning and it will be so lovely for your neighbours to receive such a personal card. I love the textured white card that you have used and I am just trying to figure out if you have outlined the card in red yourself or if it is computer generated. Love the font on the sentiment too!

Hope you have a lovely weekend.
Eve xx

Linny said...

I love these cards Jacee. We have moved. 2 weeks ago and I havn't unpacked my craft stash yet. So no Christmas cards made....At this rate I might be buying them. hugs Linda x

meg said...

Love this layout Jacee it's a favourite of mine too great mailbox image and embellishments

Pamellia Johnson said...

Oh boy, I am loving these Jacee! You always make the best holiday cards for your neighbours, I hope they appreciate all the work you put into them!

So regarding the odd business of font size on my blog. Most internet browsers have a zoom button somewhere either in the menu, or a shortcut that can be used on your keyboard. If you have accidentally hit that button and zoomed out while you were on my blog, then your browser on the computer will remember that setting. You need to find the reset button, or the set to default and hit it...when you are on my blog. Does that make sense??

Happy weekend my friend. hugs :)
