We contacted each other and exchanged postal details. Clicky was super-quick and practically the next day I received a beautiful home-made card. It was one of the first cards that we received in fact:)
Isn't it fab :) So elegant and pretty, I'd never thought of making a card using embroidery thread this way, I will definitely be making some like this next year :) I was so chuffed to receive Clicky's card, I know lots of people are opting out of the Christmas Card chaos, but I am a firm fan, and receiving a home-made (well, I am assuming Clicky did make it) card from a fellow bloggy crafter is just lovely, and it was equally as lovely to make one to send in return.
Now. If you are reading this Clicky, please STOP! as I am about to post details of the making of my card to you! If you are anyone else, you may continue.
I'm terribly last-minute about everything so of course I only got round to making my card for Clicky yesterday, and I think I missed the last Christmas post. Honestly, I reeeeeeally annoy myself with my last-minute-ness, but I just perform better to a deadline. Yes, I will be that person still wrapping presents at midnight on Christmas Eve. I kid you not.
Anyway, back to the card. I dithered about making a card with a crochet embellishment, but I have loads of Christmas cross-stitch books and booklets, so I thought I'd use one of those instead.
I decided to make the First Day of Christmas' Partridge in a Pear Tree. It was stitched whilst watching Christmas movies and eating mince pies :) Very festive :)
And I put it in a rather jolly red and gold window card. I hope Clicky likes it :)
