Christmas Journal Day 3

Yep, it's me again! Day 3 and todays prompt was about Christmas cards. I found this one a little bit more difficult, but I'm happy with how it turned out! I used some Blonde Moments Festive Feast paper and a couple of Christmas cards that were hanging about from last year, some MM glitter letter stickers and some buttons. I used the digital notebook paper for my journalling again, and you can find it here at Designer Digitals. Journalling reads:-
Well, I started thinking about making my own Christmas cards back in October. I thought how wonderful it would be to give handmade cards to all my friends and family, and imagined their delight to receive them.
It’s now the 3rd December, and, well, I’m still just thinking about it. The trouble is that I am not really a card maker. I scrapbook mainly, and have only ever dabbled in cards (my sister is the card maker in the family) so I always think that any cards I make look decidedly amateurish. So it looks like I will be going down the route of bought Christmas cards again this year!
And as for posting them – well, that’s a job in itself! You wouldn’t think that it would be such hard work to stick a few cards in the postbox, but apparently, yes it is. I even remember one year that they didn’t get posted till AFTER Christmas, but I think I managed to blame that one on the Royal Mail.
So – note to self. Must buy cards. Soon. And then must write them, address them and actually post them. How hard can it be?!

Thank you for the lovely comments over the last few days too!
