Card production line

I've nearly finished making my christmas cards.......

I never buy christmas cards, having made them for over twenty years, so now it's a bit of a tradition. Sometimes I think, "Oh, I can't be bothered this year" but then a little voice creeps in to my head and says "Don't be ridiculous! You can't possibly buy them" so here I am, the annual ritual of chopping up card and coming up with an idea. Some years have been better than others! I wish I'd kept a card archive of all past designs, it would be fun to look back. I love chopping up card - it's the preciseness of it, the joy of a newly unwrapped scalpel blade, the measurements, the folding, the adjusting. I can get quite carried away!

This year's design is back to potato prints. I like to keep it simple - small square cards as I prefer those proportions, and usually single colour.

All the printings done....I'm now finishing off the embellishing, an excuse to have a bit of sparkle. I'll share the results tomorrow.

12 days to go, and still a very long 'to do' list.
