Full of good intentions

     The card below is a handmade J-Land Card I got in the mail yesterday from England, It's one of my favorites this year. Thanks Amy ... Loves Peccarys <-- click Another one of my favorites was from Jersey Girl <-- click it's a winter photo card of her girls and the greyhound on the Jersey Shore ... Brrr ... thanks Nettie.

     I was full of good intentions to get a little artsy with my Christmas Cards this year, hand made deco or maybe an original painting ... at the very least a favorite photo card.

     Even with all of the time I've had off this month I let the holiday slip right up on me and ended up sending store bought cards instead, some of you should be getting yours about now. This is the photo I would have used if I sent a photo card, It's a close up of the flowers on the Old Country Rose table my mother set for a Christmas Party earlier in the season for some of her friends. Very Christmassy, don't you think?

Oh well ... theirs always next year ... maybe I should start now  :.:.:.big sigh:.:.:.

I'm glad you liked the card...I confess though, I tend to be every-other-year with the cards....sometimes I just can't get my act together on time.....this year was no exception, but by some small chance, I did get them done with only days to spare this year!  :-)

Merry Christmas to you and yours Coy :-)

I've gotten some of the prettiest cards in the mail this year - some people are just TOO talented, I swear.  LOL  I'd love to make my own, but like you, I always seem to run short on time.  And I just realized that I don't have you on my mailing list.  Send me your address!!  I may not get to you by Christmas, but I'll send you a little something, and you'll be on my Christmas list next year for sure.  :D  Merry Christmas!

P.S.  Finally added you to my alerts, so I won't get so far behind. Sheeshh.. :P

That picture would make a wonderful card.. Very pretty AND Christmassy (is that a word <g>). I think I am going to do my cards in January this year... Maybe I will get them in the mail so they will get there by Christmas <LOL>. I mailed my cards on Tuesday evening this year... Maybe they will make it <sigh>.
