A Last Christmas card.

My last christmas card of the year [I think!!].....and a very simple one it is too.......I have much more important things to do now.......like.....post the last few cards [late].........wrap presents [yuk].........go food shopping [get crushed]..........holiday baking [yum].........clean the house [oh dear].......all for just one day of celebrating.......but I'm not complaining [apart from the wrapping!!]........because it's my favourite day of the year.
So this card has no cute little characters to spend ages colouring.......just a quick bit of stamping and layering.......and some ribbon as a finishing touch........but I quite like the simplicity.........all products are SU.
Creative Inspirations, Spoonful of Sugar and Stamp with Fun all want 'christmas'....it's definately that!!

Fantastic card, it's beautiful, I love the colours. . . well lucky you have finished your cards for this year... I still have got some to go and I want to finish them off today. Have fun xx

It is beautiful and simple, but I much prefer the one I received in the mail a couple days ago - that now resides next to my computer - complete with adorable little character and lots of copic marker coloring and glitter!

If you'd care to put me up I'll come and wrap for you - I love it!

It's a lovely card Jacky, simple or not and well done on finishing before the last posting date too.

A simply perfect card! I have lots to do for Christmas still, but that's okay.

wrapping is my favorite thing as well, it must be our fascination with paper :) Beautiful card!

Amen to that Jacky! Here's to the best day of the year (and to wonderful card makers who make someone's day with a gift of their lovely work x)

It looks lovely :-) I just realised today that I missed two people off my list, aargh!! And I thought I'd made just enough cards....

It is gorgeous Jacky!

I hope you manage with the house cleaning - as it says in your sidebar ... it is evil!

Love the card! I admire the fact that you make all different cards for Christmas. I do digital and make one design. Everyone gets the same thing.

Jacky, your to-do list looks a lot like mine (maybe I won't bake as much as you) and I'm roping DH in to help with the shopping crush..tee hee :) Well, he did offer!!

I love your last card, simplicity always works for me!

I'm another fan of wrapping, although I have barely started. What a cute card! I thought I was done, but alas, I need several more. I'm thinking about doing some photo cards.
