Done !

Well, my Christmas cards are done ,and pretty much sorted . Just a couple more to post , which are waiting to be added to , and a couple to hand deliver to people we will be seeing this weekend.
I found it a real bind again this year , just couldn't get into the mood for it .I even ended up buying some ,which I haven't done for quite a few years.I still made a lot of cards though. Some were stitched , mainly for stitching friends , and the rest were done with stamps, peel offs and special papers.

So , these are my stitched cards. A couple aren't pictured , as I was so engrossed in getting them written on ready to send, I sealed the envelopes before thinking about taking photos.

And these are the rest

These were made using some Bentley Bear stamps that were free with one of the card making mags a while ago.(The only reason I bought it).They're cute , and I like Bentley and plan on doing some stitched pics of him next year. Typically , I have some cards and components left over , so I'll have to try and remember where I've put them for next year , and remember not to send them to the same people lol.

So , not much progress on my Christmas stitching , though I have done a bit . After all that card making and writing , I felt like a bit of self indulgent stitching , so yesterday in between going out for new fairy lights, I did this

It's from the latest issue of Cross Stitcher , and just me. Just need to decide whether to mount it or make it into a bookmark now. I'm leaning towards a bookmark , but who knows.

Thanks for dropping by , and to all who read this blog, A very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and frog free New Year. I would have liked to send out cards , but don't know your addresses on the most part , so please accept my very best wishes.

I'll hopefully be back to waffle before the man in red comes though ,lol
