WOYWW #177 - Christmas at last!

Yep - at last I have made some Christmas Cards. Made a few for a SWAP (can't show those) then thought of all the cards I have saved from last year. I had already cut most of the pictures out using nesties so just had to find some papers, do a bit of inking and sticking. Add some glitter and greetings and more or less done. Glad to get some done at last, don't wish to give in and buy any.
If you wish to have a snoop at other desks pop over to Julia's. Please leave your number if you are a WOYWWer then I will reply to any comments.
Happy WOYWW, BJ.

Very nice! Glad to see the recycling of the cards from previous years. You made store bought images special! Hope you have a great week. Vickie #91

We recycled a few Christmas cards from last year too, but having a lot of crafty friends means we receive a lot of handmade cards so not too many to recycle.

::sigh::...I need to work on my Christmas cards for the Art MoB store, I'll be loading it up on the first day of November, but I cannot seem to get into Christmas mode yet! I have so many things to make! YIKES! Looks like you got an excellent stash of cards! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Robin Spitzer said...

Cry....I am doing Halloween cards today....I am taking your inspiration and going to get started on Christmas before December!

Elizabeth said...

Wow! You've been busy - love the array of cards on your desk, positively festive, and the toppers look perfect.

Thanks for popping by earlier - I still haven't decided on which papers to use. Thanks for the suggestion but I think if I used them all the layout would look far too busy ... no, I'll have to decide :))

Happy WOYWW, what's left of it, and have a great week. Elizabeth x #114

Thanks for the pumpkin advice!!!

Beautiful cards BJ, my favourite type! The problem with making your own cards is that people will be seriously disappointed if you go and buy one!!
