Christmas is just over a week away and I have finally put up my tree, reconstructed and hung my door wreath, sent my Christmas cards, and wrapped some presents. Tomorrow I have given over to Christmas cooking. I will bring you photos when I'm done!
My sister makes the most amazing greeting cards - each one personally made for Christmas, birthdays, mother's day, father's day, etc. They are works of art and I have kept every one and am going to put them all together in an album.
Me? I take photos - so my greeting cards are often made from my images from our travels.
For Christmas I have had -

But the last few years I have added words - I think they add a special touch -
2010 - Rose Mallee - a Western Australian wildflower -
2011- yellow daisies from my garden -
2012 - Christmas star biscuits -
and this year - 2013 - Gardens on the Bay in Singapore - if you missed my post about this amazing place you can see it by clicking here - The breathtaking world of gardens in Singapore
Do you make Christmas cards? I hope you have enjoyed these few cards and the beautiful words that go with them. Unfortunately I don't know the author of the first two.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a wonderful week and a beautiful count down to the Christmas season. In Western Australia we are experiencing sizzling hot burning temperatures in the 30-40 degrees C ! and I am cooking roast for Christmas lunch!
I look forward to hearing from you. I'm off to start my Christmas baking now.
