My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

Christmas Makes

Afternoon crafty peeps.

Thought I would do a quick post to share some Christmas cards I made recently.

It was quite therapeutic being back in my craft room - first time in ages as I have been really struggling to get back into it since losing Mark in November 2014.  My mojo just completely disappeared.

So here there are - nothing fancy:

Hope all my crafty friends have A Very Merry Christmas!
