Christmas Card Swap 2016

Amy from Love Made My Home has, once again, organised a Christmas Card Swap. This is the third year that I've joined in with this swap and this year I was partnered with Jan from Jan's Ramblings.

I hadn't come across Jan's lovely blog before so I'm pleased that, through this swap, I've now been introduced to both Jan and her blog.

This is the card which Jan sent to me, I don't think it picks it up so well on a photo but it's really twinkly and catches the light beautifully.


I forgot to take a photo of the card I sent to Jan but it was personalised with the name of the small town where I live.

Thank you, Jan, for the lovely card and thanks go to Amy too for organising the swap again. I'm linking this post to Amy's post where everyone's sharing the cards they received in the swap.

  1. I forgot to take a photo of mine too so I was a little relieved to know that it wasn't just me. A beautiful card.

    1. I do too. I don't think anything else says Christmas as much as a snow scene.

    1. The glitter really does twinkle, it's not captured properly on a photo but it's really lovely.

    1. The post can be so unpredictable around Christmas time, especially when you're posting to another country. I find I'm holding my breath until I know the recipient has received what I've sent.

  13. A Christmas card swap -- what a lovely idea. And less fattening than a Christmas cookie swap which is popular here. P. x

  14. I love the card you sent me, sorry it has taken me awhile to get around to blogging, I went down with a horrible cold at the weekend which has put me even further behind with my Christmas preparations! I am so pleased we were partnered as I have so much enjoyed reading your blog, we seem to have very similar tastes. Have a wonderful Christmas. xx

  15. I love the card that Jan found to send you. We rarely get snow on Christmas day but I still wish it would snow just a little. I love all the glitter and lights.
    Merry Christmas.

    1. I think the last time we had a white Christmas was back in 2010, it does make it rather special but can be a bit of a pain for those people having to travel. Merry Christmas.

  16. What a cosy little winter scene, I'd like to visit that village.
