Can you keep a secret?

I don't make my own cards. Is that a terrible thing to admit when I'm an avid scrapper and have a whole craft room full of paper craft supplies that could be used to make them. I think it bothers me at this time of year because so many people are busily making their own christmas cards to send out and I'm not. Actually that's not quite true, I've made one. Yes I've made one whole christmas card! I started off with such good intentions and bought a few sheets of christmas PP specially to make them and well it just didn't happen...

I don't know what it is with me and cards but we don't get on, I'm never inspired in terms of design. Fair enough I could just copy someone elses but that doesn't really excite me.

And why do I feel to share this with everyone? Well todays JYC prompt is all about correspondance and it got me thinking all about my lack of interest in card making. Is it something to be ashamed of? Well now I've announced it to the world I feel a little cleansed, afterall non crafters don't make their own christmas cards and just because I'm a scrapbooker doesn't mean I have to also be a cardmaker. JYC is all about taking back your christmas and I'm taking back mine and I'm not going to feel guilty about not making my own cards I'm quite simply going to be some charity ones and feel good about it!

For those of you still with me after my ramblings about christmas cards (and I doubt there is anyone) I'll reward with you with some lovely photos now... I don't have any pictures to share that go with this topic so I'll go for some completely random pictures of the most gorgeous Daniel Craig (who is my current hot totty and the reason why I'm quite happy to watch reruns of Casino Royale as many times as Mark wants but refuse to watch the older Bond movies!) that my friend sent to me in an email the other day in an effort to cheer me up (I was a little down about my lack of time to myself since starting full time work) and so here they are as my reward to you for listening to my rambling...

Well, the pictures of Daniel Craig were well worth clicking the blog link! Don't worry, you're not alone with the Christmas cards thing, I always feel that I should but never quite get round to it!

Blimmin eck! I was just about to get a hot chocolate but i think brandy might be in order lol, very nice! Theres nothing wrong with not doing your cards, I'm trying but I'm really wooden at it, not like scrapping - perhaps you're too creative to make cards? Right lady - where's these LOs you prmised us??? xx

Just cos you're a scrapper doesn't mean you have to make cards!

snap..........i actually make about 12 for immediate family and friends but if i didn;'t get the time i would have no quarms going out and buying them - and to be truthful i don't make good cards ! but i don't send out loads of cards anyway because i give to charity instead - everyone is getting to know me now and don't expect a card, even tho i told my sister in law 5 years running - i'm not sending cards, i'm giving to charity - she still said 'never get a card of you gilly' - so i relented and that's why i send out just 12 per year!
