JYC 3rd December

Welcome to Journal Your Christmas 3rd December

Today Shimelle's prompt is all about Christmas Greetings

I have not purchased my cards yet but will get them from the EllenorLions Hospices charity I work for. For  close family and friends I have made some cards which I cannot show on this blog yet as many of you follow this blog and you don't have your card yet! I love to give and receive hand made cards, but as we send over 100 cards I don't make them all!!

It's great to keep in touch with distant family and friends and so we type out a letter with all the years activities - a sort of round robin with photos attached. Then we add personal messages to individual cards. So I guess it's time to check and update the list and get organised.

We have received a fun Christmas card from our neighbours Amanda and Colin already and looking back I see they were first the last two years too!

I have made them a card and have just delivered it to them this evening.

I used Dasher papers from Basic Grey and the image is a new one from Penny Black called 'Gift of Giving'. 
Last posting dates for Christmas are:
1st Class - Tuesday 21st December - 41p
2nd Class - Saturday 18th December - 32p

This years Christmas postage stamps:


  1. Sounds like you have a plan! I love the picture of the post box!

  2. Lovely! And what a quantity of cards you are sending! Your friends and family will be enchanted!

  3. What a good idea about journaling your Christmas. I would never have thought about showing the stamps for the year. What a clever one you are!! xx
