Last minute Christmas Card!

I'd decided that this year I wouldn't have the time to make any Christmas cards. But, well you know how it is - two weeks to go and I think 'That's plenty of time' . . . . what!!

So last Saturday I cut some lino and got to printing, pronto.
Making a plate for the snowflakes.

Impatiently waiting for them to dry - I positioned a heater underneath which did help a little.
Sunday morning and making the proofs for the second plate while listening to Coope Boyes and Simpson. Being 'guarded' by Rufus, who likes to snooze in the doorway so he can pretend to keep an eye on the world and young Flynn who is much happier sitting outside keeping an eye on the path to my shed, so he can be the first to welcome any visitors.

Hanging up to dry on Sunday morning.
I took them all into the house and propped them on the radiators to dry off over night!

Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas and all the things you'd wish for yourself for 2012.


  1. Charming! I always love to see the plate and roller with color. Happy Holidays!

  2. What a great idea especially for printmakers.
    You have inspired me for next year to have something to work on through the year.
    Happy New Year.
