Cards

Feeling rather pleased with myself cos today I mailed out 20 handmade cards. Usually I think about making cards but never get around to it and end up sending nothing.

The design is not mine - I was lacking in inspiration until I found these cards by Zina Wright. The first five were a little different and then I settled into a production routine and they ended up looking like this:

Each one a messy, doodley, handmade original - just the way I've been feeling lately. No time for straight lines and perfect measuring. Which is probably why I haven't done any real scrapbooking lately. Which also means I totally missed the Up2Scrap submission deadline - nevermind, there's always next time.

I have a few more handmade gifts to make for Christmas - some scrapping related like finishing off mini album type things, a clipboard etc and some sewing related - not telling what those are!

I tried taking photos of our tree today - might have to try again sometime as this was the only decent photo!
