Just a quickie

I have just finished my Christmas card design for this year and thought you could take a sneak peek. I wish I could say we live in a nice converted mine engine house, sadly we don't, but it doesn't hurt to dream.

Back to the engraving tomorrow!

Sweetly cosy! I bet converted mine engine houses sell for a small fortune (and a lot of engravings!)

Did you say Christmas???

Makes me feel all christmas morning. Lovely.

Scary that it is time to think about that stuff again so soon, though.

Arrgghh!! I can't believe you've done your card already! and it looks beautiful:( Must start thinking about mine,('scuse the pun)

I don't think they let you convert engine houses Gretel. Which is probably just as well.

Beautiful! I've always wanted to live in a renovated barn.

Lovely card as always Sue! My dream house is a converted engine house we saw on the edge of Porth Towan beach....if only!

Sue said...

Cheers, everyone! I was determined to get it done early this year, as with the housemove last year, I didn't get a card done.
Chris, as Caroline says, there's a converted engine house at Porthtowan, near the beach. :-)The engine house on the card is based on the one at the edge of our village, the old South Condurrow tin mine. Landscape is riddled with chimneys and buildings like this, they look like ruined castles, to me!

Are you curious about me? said...

This is a delight.

Oh, you are so clever! Love this card and its festive local theme. Well done.x

Well I stand corrected:)

There's a really spooky one at the foot of Trencrom hill. I'd love to live in that. It's covered in ivy.

I'll have to take a picture:)
