Ah yes, it’s my favourite time of year again! The smell of tinsel and dusty decorations as we put up the tree, the excitement (yes, even at my age!) of that tiny little chocolate behind the advent calender door each morning, the joy of buying gifts for loved ones and imagining their expressions of glee as they unwrap them. Yes, Christmas time is definately my favourite season.
What else do I love about it, though? I absolutely love sending out my cards. I know – with the age of the internet upon us, it’s all to easy to click and email a generic ecard these days…but, really? It kind of loses the essence of why we send cards, it’s so stark and impersonal. Oh, and lazy. A Christmas card isn’t just some “silly, old tradition” or a “waste of time” as I have heard friends describe them, oh no! Recieving that gorgeous little card in post says to the recipient, “hey, I may not see you all year ’round, but you are still in my thoughts. I took time out of my busy life to think of *you* this Christmas, and I care enough to let you know. You are special to me!” And that, is getting into the true spirit of Christmas, is it not?
So on that note, here are some truly special ways to show your family and friends that you care, and are thinking of them this festive season! (click the titles to view more info)
In my opinion, the most special gifts that I have ever recieved have been those that are unique to me. These cards are much the same! You can take any of my original Christmas artworks and adorn them with your very own Christmas message on the front and inside of the card – what a treat for someone to recieve a card with their own name printed on it! Even better, as you’ve already “written” in it, I am more than happy to post it directly to the recipient for you (for no extra charge, of course) so that it gets there that little bit quicker!
I’m sure some of us have quite a large family, or group of friends to get in touch with this Christmas. Luckily my cards also come in packs, to help you on your merry way! These cards each feature a sweet, little “Have a very, Merry Christmas” type message inside and now include my two newest card designs, too!
If you’re after something special, but can’t think of the right words to put in a personalised card, do not worry! These general cards a perfect for you. Each of these large cards have a beautiful artwork on the front and contain a completely original verse by yours truly. With cards such as “To a special little boy” and “Merry Kissmas” I’m sure you’ll have no trouble finding a ready-made design to suit your needs! This year, I have two brand new designs on offer, too! “Christmas Angel” and “Christmas Dreams” (see below)
Now, as you all know, my artwork *always* comes adorned with extra sparkle – so you can expect each and every one of these cards to be hand-glittered to add that little bit of extra Christmas-siness! What’s Christmas without sparkle?!
So go, grab yourself some Christmas cards and get sending. Show someone you’re thinking of them this festive season – it might be just what they needed to hear!
