Favourite Christmas cards

I made very few cards at all in December - it was a mad rush of a month from the start right up till Christmas Eve night, when I was rolling out my cinnamon buns for Christmas breakfast at quarter to one in the morning.

So instead of favourite cards for December, here are my favourite Christmas cards from the year...

The Baah humbug was made for C, who is a bit of a Grinch, and I asked him to give me the one with the little owl on the tree stump as I loved it so much. It was for a challenge to use plaid, hence the sheet of DIY alcohol-ink plaid in the background.
I ended up making another four of the stable shaped cards, slightly smaller and with the star lower down so that they would fit in a regular envelope...

This month's header is a photo from Farmleigh last January, out by the smaller pond.
