By then I had the bug, so the next year it was "A Christmas Anthology", (left) using the cards to illustrate poems, songs and literature relating to Christmas.
I am back to square one now, with a 2 year old granddaughter, so the emphasis is on cards that will appeal to her.
My latest edition that I am currently working on is "Christmas A-Z" (right) focusing on a wide range of aspects of the Christmas story. What would I do without the internet to help with history and definitions?
I do mean to stop - but already my mind is on next year - perhaps looking at the stories behind Christmas carols.
Since I began, scrapbooking has become a sophisticated hobby, but I have kept to a very simple style with the focus on the illustrations.
So to anyone who sent me a card, it continues to give pleasure long after the 12 days of Christmas have past.
