    YES! I made a few in January while I was still feeling festive, and now I'm gonna start on some more soon!

    I made some last year and recycled pictures from old cards, this year I've invested in some backing papers and will be buying a card making magazine or 2 when their Xmas ones are out - which will be very soon!

    Here's some of last years efforts...

    Nice recycling of old cards!

    I used to do that for packages that we shipped, instead of using ribbon and bows that would be squashed. I used solid colour wrapping paper and glued on the card cutouts.

    Could always identify our packages in the "under the tree" photos!

    I like to make my own gift tags. I have a little side business where I make diaper cakes and towel cakes. But I don't think I am that creative to make christmas cards. Those are really nice! I always prefer the photo cards so I can find my favorite disney vaca pic and "brag" to others about our wonderful year. Is that bad?

    Pretty cards! I have no talent at all when it comes to making cards. :sigh; I love handmade cards though.

    I have a beautiful one that Dawn made me for my birthday a few years back. It was purple with a purple feather, and a fairy (and the neatest little purple clothespin). She also made me an incredible angel Christmas card one year. Whew. Lots of work in those!

    I've received quite a few beautiful handmade cards, actually!

    I am happy to receive cards from anyone whether handmade or not!
