25 December

No, I know it's not 25 December yet ... and nowhere near ... but the weeks go by and it makes sense to get lots of Christmas cards done early in the year to avoid the panic nearer December.

I've been quiet on my blog for a few days because I've been sorting craft stuff and also putting inserts into cards, bagging, labelling etc - I actually had 95 of these to do - I need to go back to my new year crafty resolution to do this once a week to avoid the build up.

Anyway, I digress. While I was sorting through my Christmas stuff I came across a card that had been started and left. I'd used an offcut of My Mind's Eye glitter book paper for the background, stamping the days and months of the year with Sally Moret stamps. It didn't need a lot more on the card and I found a lovely glittery Santa with his reindeer and a couple of trees - shame that the glitter doesn't really show here, but it is there, honestly!
