Like the cards. This is the first year I haven't made my own - I am using a photo taken on the farm and reproduced by foto.com - very good.
I love your leafy banner and would like it projecting ontomy sitting room wall - it is so restful on the eye.

Fun! I haven't done my "open topic" yet and have been trying to decide if it was too early to start posting the holiday stuff. :)

Homemade cards! Aaaaagh! My wife cross-stitches our cards and I participate by sticking them in cards......I've just finished sticking my 48th!

Lovely cards!! It's especially nice to receive handmade cards, knowing all the time and effort that went into making them :)

Ohhh Noooo .... I still have time to send out Halloween cards? Yes???

Bunnies do not go where the cats are!! When the bunns go outside it is on a 2nd floor huge deck with no access from below so the cats don't see them either .. although I'm sure everybody knows each other is there.

Very cool, you are ON it!
I used to hand paint every dang Christmas card (no way, NO MORE)!! But, I DO want to do something handmade or handmade-ish! Merry Merry!

I'd far rather receive one of your starry handmade cards than a mass produced snowy Father Christmas - particularly as it's usually 35 degrees celsius in South Africa on Christmas Day.
