Am I Too Late?

While everyone in Blogland has been posting their Christmas makes most days, i have instead been making and sending them out, taking pictures and resting. I find making lots of items very tiring these days, my hands don’t always cop-operate, nor do the other little quirks my body has to deal with everyday.

Yesterday and today i have spent over 3 hours uploading and preparing my pictures to be blogged. It is a tiring process but you always want your creations to look good. I am hopeful you will not get too bored by another long post lol.

Will not go into detail of how these were all made except to say there were many hours of play and doubts as they were assembled. Trying to keep a white card white is indeed very difficult when you are a messy crafter like me, but i did manage it on most of the cards. I did make a couple of decoupage cards as this years cards have been mostly about using a lot of my older stash as well as newer stash. Thought it was about time to use some of it up.

Here goes, i would appreciate your comments and feedback as always.
