Christmas is Coming

Hi Folks,

I am really getting into the festive spirit in the run up to Christmas. On Monday I enjoyed a flying visit from some very special friends who now live in Norfolk as they were visiting this area. There was so much to talk about and not enough time to cram it all in, so we have promised each other to keep in closer touch next year.

On Friday I had a lovely lunch with some chums from my writing group and for once I didn't have to feel guilty about not having written anything as the focus was on the food and good company. Another promise for next year......must write more!

I've also had a busy couple of weeks playing catch-up and getting ready for Christmas at home. Mince pies and chestnut sausage rolls are now made and are in the freezer. Goodies with a long shelf life have been purchased and there are only a few odds and ends left on my presents list still to buy - okay, so I haven't wrapped anything yet but that's a job for next week. I have had a marathon session making quick and easy cards which now gives me a more immediate task of writing on them and getting them in the post.

Before they disappear from the radar I would like to share just a few samples with you. I have used some of my favourite stamps from a variety of suppliers and coloured with watercolour pens and pencils - so this is just a quick peek at some of the fifty odd cards I have made. There is nothing spectacular here but that is batch making for you!

Thanks for visiting today


  1. A really lovely selection of cards Anne. It's hard to choose a favourite but I do particularly like your snowy village and I do love the hats you've put on the gingerbread men. Barbxx
