Since all of my cards have now been given I am finally able to show them to you - just before Christmas is officially over (which is on New Year's Eve in my book). I like these cards so much I am tempted to make more of them to send again next year! I don't think my obsession with deer will ever end.
I actually intended to send these instead:
I made them after seeing this tutorial earlier in the year, but although the first few were beautiful, the soft rubber of the stamp pretty much disintegrated after that so I had to think of something else as I had a lot of cards to make.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Mine was peaceful and lovely. While 2011 has not been kind to many, for me it has been the year that I finally found my direction and as such I will be a little sad to see it go. I approached it with optimism because 11 is my lucky number, and my frame of mind seems to have worked wonders. I can't deny I am excited to see what comes next though - I have just one more month to get through before I cut my hours at work to concentrate on my stitching. Terrifying, but also a dream come true. And hopefully it means I will be able to enjoy a few little luxuries such as sleep and seeing my friends again.
And so... goodbye 2011, may 2012 be twice as wonderful.
Happy New Year!
