90 cards

I know it doesn't look like 90!
This afternoon I made 90 Christmas cards for the children at school! I've always given the children homemade cards, and for my last 'full-time' class I knitted 30 little stockings. This year as I'm teaching three different classes I've made them all a card each. The pictures are from Dots and Spots wrapping paper, that I've cut out and stuck onto coloured card. I just love Becky's designs. Now I've just to write in the cards and do 90 envelopes!!!!

This morning Pickle-Lily and I visited our favourite garden centre - Cadburys, and it didn't let us down! Beautiful Christmas displays ...

Lovely things to buy - I loved the hyacinth basket.



And as a treat I'd booked an ice-skating session for P, which she loved!
This week has seen the last Christmas fair, and I have one order to post tomorrow. I've got a full week at school, but in between times I'm making Christmas gifts and reading all the lovely blogs on Handmade Monday. So now to write 90 envelopes!

Wow -simply writing 90 Christmas cards is enough let alone making them too. They are always well appreciated however so well worth the effort :)

90 Christmas cards and 30 Christmas stockings... wow! You well and truly put me to shame! Well done for getting them done, i think I would have given up at 20 :) Have a very merry Christmas!

That is a mammoth task. I've been making something for each of the children in my class, which I'm going to post about later in the week. I still have two more to make. Fortunately my school is not full, and I only have 17 to make.

Awww those cards look so sweet! I'm sure they will be greatly appreciated too :)

Garden centres are great at this time of year aren't they, our local one is packed to the rafters with Chrismassy treasures! x

Your cards are lovely and I recommend lots of (perhaps chocolate) breaks while writing them. The Cadbury's display us really beautiful. I hope you have a very happy Christmas and look forward to 'seeing' you in the New Year

The display at the garden centre looks lovely, I'm hoping to visit my local one this week. It's not a very big one but they usually do something chrismassy.
P looks like she's having a great time, it's a great photo :)
