Day 3 of the Journal which is still awaiting its photo. I am trying to wait and take 2 or 3 days at a time for processing- the computer won't print them at the minute so it means a visit to the local pharmacy.
The red envelope contains a peice of card stock folded into a card and the Journalling reads
"Christmas Cards - a very important tradition of the holidays. From the time we start school and bring home the hand made card for our parents it is ingrained in you.
I do love to send and receive cards from friends. All displayed hanging from the bannister up the stairs and making for a festive entrance to the house.
I don't make cards, ones bought in the January Sales suit me now. But I do like to use my crafting skills to add that little extra. A handmade Santa stocking - a new design each year. The stocking is added to our cards posted out on the 1st December to special friends. Each one wit special edition christmas stamps produced each year by the post office. "
The gold envelope holds a minature felt version of this years stocking which you can see in the 2nd picture.
I am really enjoying making these pages and taking the 'me' time each night. And yes so far I am tidy and putting away the scrapping materials each evening before I go to bed.
