Another Christmas card

I decided to count up the Christmas cards I have been making and stacking in a box and shock,horror found I have made more cards than I have people to send them to .  I was so determined I wasn't going to be a last minute Annie that I have become a bit obsessed with making them, trouble is I still want to keep making them and I have stuff I haven't used yet!   I didn't really need this stamp, I have been looking at it in our local craft shop and thinking it was rather nice, I had already bought the bird one in the same series and made paper pieced cards with it, after resisting for so long (about 2 weeks!) I saw a lovely card made with it on flowersparkles blog, the next time I went in the shop it fell into my basket. These Woodware stamps are amazing value, I think this one was £3.75 or near enough.The strip of Christmas trees is a paperchain strip, don't think I'll ever make paperchains with them but thought they were rather nice.

  1. Wow Joan - what a fabulous Xmas card. The central images look like fabric with stitching around the edges - what a fantastic stamp. Love the embossed background too.

    If you enjoy making these cards continue to do so I say, they will always be used next year! Love the stamp too, I have not seen this one before. You have made a beautiful card.
