Christmas cards from friends, a little giveaway and Happy New Year!

I’ve always loved receiving Christmas cards, but since I joined the Hero Arts Flickr Group and started receiving cards from friends there, my delight in receiving Christmas cards has increased tenfold! There really is nothing like a handmade card and even though I’ve oohed and aahed over countless cards I’ve seen on various websites and blogs, there’s nothing like holding one in your own hands and being able to truly see the amazing detail and work that has gone into creating it.

Anyway scattered through this post are the beauties I was so lucky to receive this year.

Card A

They were sent to me by these very lovely and talented ladies (in alphabetic order) - Barb, Ivy, Lai-Yoke, Linda, Maureen, Paula, Sally, Sue and Trinh – thank you so much ladies, I can’t tell you how thrilled I was to receive these wonderful Christmas cards from you!

Card B

I thought it might be fun to have a little game and giveaway with them. All you have to do is guess who made each card!

Card C

Just post your guesses in the comment box or email me by 11.59pm PST on Saturday 7th January.

Card D

If you sent me one of these cards, please email me your guesses using my email address, Flickr mail or by using the contact me button on the sidebar, otherwise it might make it too easy for everyone!

Card E

Whoever guesses all or the most correctly will win a little prize. It there's a tie, I'll do a draw. I’ll send a surprise (at the moment it’s a surprise for me too as I’ll only get to my LSS next week to buy the goodies!) and also make a brooch like the one in this post, in whatever colour you'd like.

Card F

So have fun guessing and I’ll post the answers and winner on Sunday 8th December.

Card G

To finish up I just want to say a great big thanks to everyone for visiting over 2011 – I know I haven’t exactly been great for posting, especially in the last few months!

Card H

I really appreciate your visits and the lovely and encouraging comments you have left.

Card I

Hope you all have a fun time celebrating New Year’s Eve and I wish you all of the very best for 2012:):):)
