I wasn't sure if I was going to carry on with Beat the Christmas Rush this year but have decided to as it helps me to keep on track with my Christmas card requirements. I usually need about 100 for myself and then I also need about another 50 to sell later in the year at a couple of fundraisers. So it would be lovely if some people would like to join me during the year and save ourselves a mad panic come the beginning of December, when we don't have enough cards.
You can make any amount of cards that you like each month and there will be a linky so that I can find your blog post and see what you have been up to. I will share my favourites the following month.
And now for the confession - life has got in the way of me getting started with my Christmas cards so far this year - I have some toppers prepared but they haven't made it onto cards yet, so I will be a bit late posting January's cards. I am hoping to have them done and blogged by 28th. In the meantime I will share a Christmas card that I made last year for someone that loves flamingos.
I used a Stampin Up thinlet to cut out the image and was coloured with Promarkers. The die cut background is a Penny Black die and I used some Hobbycraft glitter cardstock.
I will be back in a few days time with my proper Beat the Christmas Rush post!!
