    Default time to admit.

    I have yet again got to the middle of November and have not made one Christmas card. I was lucky last year as I found some I made the year before and made in a hurry but didn't like. They didn't look too bad a year later so sent them out a week before Christmas. Please tell me I'm not alone.

    Well I have made half of mine so far
    I am Normally panicking by mid December
    I always over think the cards but this year I just used my Christmas dies
    Got a pile of toppers and cardstock and just put the cards together
    And I am quite pleased with the results
    Seeing as most of the cards will be opened with out being appreciated and
    then binned on the 27th December I do wonder why I worry over them so much

    I have not made any either! I find it hard to get into the Christmas zone before December anyway so this is a regular thing with me. I have not even thought about what I am going to do this year - I tend to do about 3-6 designs and then make a few of each. If I didn't have so much stuff then I would just go and buy what I need - would certainly be cheaper!

    I've made 120 so far (I sell them at work and all the money goes to Sightsavers) but I do make 10 of each design. Years ago, I would begin making stamped toppers in August, and then assemble the cards later on. Nowadays, my dear Cameo does all the hard work.

    I've made about 40, but they are for charity not me. I've also made about 120 gift tags and decorated some gift bags. I bet I get so fed up with making stuff I will go out and buy ours!

    I'm so impressed. Todays I have downloaded the freebie from miss kate cuttables so thinking this might be this years card.
