Black or White

I saw this Whiff of Joy digi  image on t'internet and knew it would be perfect for Neil's birthday card.

Neil has always been a fan and was lucky enough to see Michael Jackson several times in concert. 

I kept the rest of the card fairly simple ( I find it incredibly hard not to throw on flowers, pearls and ribbon)

The image was coloured in with Polychromos pencils and the sentiment is a Forever Friends one by Do Craft.

And the final batch of Christmas cards I made this year - there were other designs but I made them so last minute that they didn't all make it onto my camera !

This one was for my aunt and uncle.

These next three were all for neighbours and are each a variation on a theme.

Finally one for Helen and her family, who I mentioned in an earlier post.

I do have some other christmas projects to share ( not cards though) so will be back with them.

I am not generally a 'stressy' person, but leaving most of my cards til Christmas week was a little of a stretch - even for me. I did a run of four nights to finish them all, staying up til 3-4 in the morning and getting up at normal time and must admit I don't want to be doing that next year. 

So .......
Despite my best intentions of making one Christmas card a week last year ( I managed 2 in january !)

I DO intend to make at least one a week this year in order to have at least 50 made by Christmas.

I am sure both Anita and Margaret will hold me accountable !
