Sending Christmas wishes across the miles

The background paper for this card is Artic frog 'white out ski bunny' and the ribbons are from Poundland. The picture of the post box was rescued from an old card - I love the little robin perched on top - and the sentiment generated by computer.

This is for:

Bah! humbug 38: 'across the miles'
Paper minutes 133: 'colour combination turquoise/red Christmas'
Creative Inspirations 80: 'Christmas in September'
Charisma cardz 39: 'Christmas crafting'
One stop craft 99: 'snowflakes in September'
Alphabet: 'W for wings' (the robin)
4 crafty chicks 5: 'crazy egg challenge - a chick - a bird of some kind'
Our daily bread 31: 'wing it'
Allsorts 71: 'plain and simple'
Craft your passion 25: 'clean and simple'
My partner in crafting crime 12: 'clean and simple'
One stitch at a time 32: 'as you like it - anything goes'
Incy wincy 61: 'I wonder what it could be? - anything goes'
Cutie stampers 75: 'anything goes'
Sew many challenges 29: 'anything goes'

You'll notice the GR on the post box - well this is vintage, so it's good for Alphabet: 'V for vintage'. I suppose the fact that I can remember GR post boxes makes me vintage too!!

Simply with sympathy

Sadly, however many sympathy cards I make they seem to sell - sad fact of life, I suppose. So I needed to make some more today (still need more) in order to have enough.

These are simply paper with the stamped sentiment - nothing more - the paper speaks for itself and doesn't need anything else - it is 'the gift of love' memory page by the USA paper company - two cards from the left side of a 12 x 12.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

No, I'm not really - certainly don't like the snowy weather - looks nice on Christmas cards, but that's where it can stay!

Anyway, two more sets of simple cards using some stamped images that I got from a round robin stamp group that was held long ago on Crafts by Carolyn forum.
