We received many fabulous cards again this year, some handmade, some bought (charity or storebought) and some handmade by artists.
Here is a selection of just a few that really summed us up well!
A friend I have known since School (Sammie) bought me a Terry Pratchett card with the Nac Mac Feegle (both Sammie and I love Discworld and they have a shop in Dorset where Sammie lives)...Sammie also made me a shortbread christmas tree but lets be honest...that didn't last more than 48hrs after she gave it to me!!).
Ju (another school friend) has recently returned from a trip to Japan and kindly brought back some Japanese spa products (one was a collagen mask in the shape of a face!!!! It was lovely to use but there are NO photos of that one!!) and this was the fabulous Christmas card.
An original lino cut of Krampus from http://boswellart.blogspot.co.uk/
The final card to share is from my Mum. She didn't paint it (though she is a very talented knitter) but she did buy it from an artist selling paintings and original works direct to the public in a park in Sidmouth, Devon. Once a year artists sell direct to the public from around the bandstand and flower beds!
So just a few cards I thought I would share. Each very different but each celebrating art in various forms.
