My last Christmas card!!!!!...

I am finished. At last. 4 months of making Christmas cards has taken its toll on me - I am even happy to put away my BG wassail papers - well what's left of them! I have a ridiculous amount of Christmas stash and next year I am going to ban myself from buying anything with even a slightly Festive theme ( well obviously if BG release a new range I may have to adapt that plan slightly) I have bought Christmas stamps this year that I didn't even open let alone ink up! I am a Christmas stash addict - there I have said it ! I will be enrolling in the SSA - Santa Stashaholics Anonymous support group directly after the January craft sales have finished.




So here is my last Christmas card for the year;





For my youngest Daughter who is a big Love Elsie fan, and I have added a few of my favourites as well - Melissa frances chipboard snowflake, Fancy pants felt -OMG this stuff is fabulous (and not included in the Christmas stash ban for next year obviously) a button and a little bit of ribbon(no card is complete without ribbon in my humble opinion, so obviously that won't be banned for next years festivities either)and some Love Elsie pp.




Now I have the huge task of putting away all this stash and clearing my craft desk. Wish me luck!

This card is beautiful!!! I love that felt frame - MF snowflake and YES no card is complete without some ribbon - I agree 100%. Hugs, T

A delightful card (I know what you mean about all the Christmas stash - I almost succeeded in making myself use up some of the stash and not buy more, although a few new purchases were made.)

Such a gorgeous card Sarah, loving that pink felt :D. And I banned myself from buying any Christmas papers this year, I was very good and didn't buy a single one, it wasn't as hard as I thought! And I actually enjoyed using up last year's.

SO pretty, I love pink christmas cards! What a relief to have finished. I am with you on the christmas stash ban - I had a drawer full of christmas bits and swore up and down I would not buy anything else new this year...but of course I did, so I now have even more stuff not used!! There's no hope is there? LOL!

Wonderful card - congrats on getting them all done! I THINK I've made my last one for this year today - it's on my blog now and I want to say thank you Sarah for giving me the inspiration for this one. HUGE thanks for being SUCH a fantastic inspiration
