I use www.madaboutcards.com a lot.

Nice cards Tick Tock. I am also making recycled christmas cards for charity this year. I must post some photos of them and maybe we will get others on to it as well:)

Great idea Mrsl. I have a load of old Christmas Cards and it's a bit daunting to think up so many different designs. Particularly as cost can be a factor, as I try to keep the costs down for any embellishments. Looking forward to seeing your cards and any others that may turn up here.

Thanks TickTock for starting this thread.I love to make cards and scrapbook but time is always against me! When I can I will upload some photos of my handy work.
Love the cards you made and mrsl too.I never make my christmas cards on time.
Theres always a mad rush a week before christmas to get them finished and sent.
Thanks also for the links.My poor husband thinks my arse is glued to this seat because I'm on Jumble Town so much.LOL!

Kind regards

Do you always make your own Christmas cards Scrabble? I used to do it years ago but it got too much and to be honest some people I sent them to really weren't that interested in whether they were handmade or not. So now I only send them to a very few friends who really want to receive the handmade ones and who understand the amount of work that goes into them. I mostly give them to fundraisers.

I will post more recycled cards when I have got them done.

Are there any other JTers who recycle Christmas cards? If so, please join in.

Default Christmas cards

I used to make loads of christmas for everyone I knew but now I only give handmade to those who appreciate them like yourself.
I stick to a simple design so its not too overwhelming.I realised when it wasn't fun anymore that I was making too many.
I love making my childrens birthday cards.Only last week I made a castle card for my 4yr old and of course Dora was on it too.
I always make things for the childrens teachers at christmas and end of school year because I know that they are appreciated.

Happy crafting
Scrabble
