Thanks for popping in. August already. Where is this year going? Wherever it went, it certainly took the Summer with it! Or are we still ever hopeful of a mini heatwave in August? Shakes her head in mute acceptance of the way it is…
On a happy note, it’s only 130 sleeps to Christmas! Oh Joy. Or to bring it even closer, there are only 19 Fridays till Christmas Eve! Now doesn’t that little factoid dilate time? Oh yes.
So we’d best get started on those Christmas Cards!
Last year, I didn’t send many cards at all. I was not in a good headspace. We were in the throes of a global pandemic, the kids couldn’t come home from the States, we weren’t even able to meet up with the parents or the family over here. As I recall, I just climbed into the back of the cave, metaphorically speaking.
Actually, in hindsight, last year would have been the perfect time to send cards to friends and family. Why give cards to people you are sitting opposite? Surely we should send cards to people we can’t spend the Festive Season with. My mistake. Got that wrong.
So this year I’m doing it differently, and starting early. I love these two-way Christmas Ornament designs. Tina Cox designed the lovely original Groovi plates, and we turned them into overlay stamps. Very cool to use.
Perfect if you are looking to kick start your Christmas Cards. Tina’s 2 Way Christmas Ornament stamp sets are perfect for quick and easy cards.
So, in a bid to encourage you too, to get making early, how about this collection half price?!
Here is some artwork to inspire you from the design team
Mmmm. I really like this card by Sam. Mmmm…. where are the star boxes on the righthand side from though…stops to investigate….aahh…. Either she’s stamped out the starry strip stamp from the Angel set, and then chopped up the little boxes, or she’s stamped out the larger single heart and then doodled a box around it. Upon closer inspection, I reckon the chopped strip, don’t you? Mmm…Neat. Very neat.
Lovely samples. Lovely stamp collection = lovely Christmas cards. These designs by Tina are very doodle-lovely!
I really must get started soon! Always leave it till the last minute and then scramble. How about you? Are you one of those super efficient crafters who has already made theirs ?! Pray do tell!!
Love and Hugs
