Countdown to Christmas 20- A bit last minute!

One of my resolutions next this year should be to make a list of everyone I want to send a handmade christmas card to......and do it now.......that would save a last minute panic......I am 2 cards short for a Christmas meal I'm attending.....2 people I definately want handmade cards for......so here's the first one......made slightly quicker than usual!!
And Shimelle's lesson to use patterned papers layered up without mounting on cardstock comes in very useful when you need to be speedy!!

I have these same thoughts each year ... never seem to act on them though! You've done very well ... I'd never have said this was a last minute card.

Quick or otherwise - a lovely card. Enjoy your meal.

I usually try to make a couple of Christmas cards each month through the year - to avoid a mad panic in November! Some months it works and some it doesn't!

Seasons Greetings

My first thought was, "Doesn't look like a quick card to me!" I was in the same boat, despite my best intentions.

It still turned out beautifully, quick or not!

Jacky, you are the absolute last person on earth I thought would have had this dilemma. I am in awe of your Christmas card making throughout the year. No one will ever know that's an "ohmygosh, need one right now" card.

Jacky - you are the card making Queen, I can't believe you ran out! And there is no evidence to suggest that this one was made in a hurry. Absolutely lovely as always!

I agree with the others...you would never know it was a 'quickie'
