    I just hope all the people who get your cards realise what it takes to hand make items and do not throw them away after Christmas is over, i would be keeping them if i got something so wonderful.Most Christmas cards tend to be written very fast as a job lot one evening don't they. But these are in a different league.

    Thank you all for your kind remarks. Andy I do give a lot to my friends and family at Xmas but I sell quite a lot too. I have a few loyal customers who always buy some for their special friends/family which is one reason I need to get a move on and start making in earnest.

    A lovely card Shelley - and so different to the commercial designs. And yet again I have to admire your precision of placement - on designs like this the tiniest lapse from the geometric grid sticks out like a sore thumb.

    Yes Linda you are so right, I have a few rulers to hand and lots of readjusting to get it right, I don't suffer from OCD at all but can't deal with squiffy things. I do have to adjust peoples pictures if they are hanging crookedly. Don't mind general everyday messes and untidiness but wobbly pictures drive me nuts
