I know it is a bit early but there is a reason that I am showing these.
The Christmas bird is a swap from Penny in South Australia and it is already hanging on our Christmas tree.
I can't show you what I sent to Penny yet because she hasn't received it yet.
Yes you heard correctly our Christmas tree is up already.
In ten days time we are heading off on another cruise--for fourteen days--to Fiji-Noumea and Vanuato--so I have had to put the tree up now because it will be too late when we get back.
I will show you how "Annorexia" looks in all her finery in a couple of days.
And these are samples of the Christmas cards that I have made to mail out this week.
I have two different shapes for the baubles.
I used stamps to get the shapes--I stamped them onto white card stock using different coloured ink pads and then cut them out.
Next I attached them to the card using double mount tape and also added gold strips to resemble the string that they hang from.
I further embellished them with stars and greeting messages.
I think they look great.
