#24 Homemade Christmas cards

Source: Homemade Christmas cards

I was just browsing some of my old posts & came across this one! I thought it would be a good time to dust off the cobwebs & show you all some Xmas cards I made not last Xmas but the one before. Click on the link above to see them 🙂

How many Christmas cards are you all planning to make this year? What plans do you have to make sure you finish on time?

Happy stitching 🙂
