Christmas Card Swap

One of the nicest things about Christmas is Christmas cards.  I love getting them from friends and family, particularly ones I don't see very often and get notes and letters filling me in with all the news.  Technology has made it so much easier to keep in touch but I still love the old fashioned post, through the letter box picking it up from the door mat.  That is one of the reasons that I got involved with the Christmas card swap organized by the lovely Amy  I was lucky enough to be paired with Rachel 

This is the beautiful card that I received:

A beautifully crafted card, a crochet tree topped with a stunning red/white checked bow and gold lettering.  It really was a stunner and greatly appreciated.  Thank you so much Rachel and also  a big thanks to Amy for organizing the swap.
My tree and decorations are finally up and it is beginning to look a bit like Christmas around here, but I will save that for another post.  How are your preparations coming along?
See you soon.
