Evening all!!

Tonight's little creation is made with one of my fab new stamps from Lili of the Valley called "Mary and Joseph", such a gorgeous little stamp with the sweetest little characters. Don't know about you but I am not a lover of making Christmas cards, actually that's an understatement lol!!Every year I try and try making them and I end up throwing them in the bin because I just don't like them. We all end up with hundreds of Xmas cards, a quick look then put them to one side ready to go in the bin Boxing day!!
Anyway, this year I will force myself to make a few each month and hopefully I will end up enjoying them by the end of the year especially if the images are as cute as this one :o)

So tonight's little gem is going into the fab sketch over at Sunday sketch and stamp #32

Aww, what a cute christmas card Vicky - don't you dare put it in the bin! You sound like me; when I first make a card I like it but then after a bit I go right off it and can't bear to look at it 'cos I think it's rubbish. I throw so many away before anyone's seen them!

Such a gorgeous card Vicky. Know what you mean about making Christmas cards - feels like making a production line, & I don't get satisfaction from making them. xx

Vicky this is gorgeous. How could anyone not just love this! I think like Katina that sometimes you can go off a card or you can be over critical of your own card. Also I think because there are too many to make it puts you off! Trish x
