Colourful Cards

I always struggle to part with cards that people send me, whether they are for celebrations or “just because”. So much time, thought and money has gone into them – they are often so pretty too.

Some even provide me with on-going knitting inspiration and cheer.

How about …

Sadly, there is no mention of the artist’s name – I suspect they are by the same artist or producer, although they were sent to me by different people.

You can see why I can’t bring myself to part with them, can’t you?

Do you have difficulty letting go of cards? Do you have any tips you can share? I’d love to hear about them!

    Oh dear, I know just what you mean, having disposed of a wheelie bin full of cards from the last 20 years lately… nothing quite this original but it did seem a shame! However, it does get overwhelming and you sometimes have to steel yourself and just do it, keeping only the most meaningful – I think we kept 2 apart from the odd 40-60 year old one that was in among the bulk. Interestingly, most people only sign their name anyway and that made the disposal easier – if there’s a really nice personal message of sentiment, then it would be so much harder!

      Wow, that’s a lot of cards, but understandable, especially with growing children and a busy household. You did well to sort them and reduce them to a manageable number. Over the years, I have got better at letting some go shortly after the event, but it is still a tussle with my conscience! 🙂


  2. I love the disco sheep! Would it be worth turning this into some kind of scrapbooking project? You could perhaps cut down sections of some of the cards, cut out messages or just the ‘from xyz’ part and it would be a bit more compact than a pile of cards? Might be good fun to make too! I know I’d be really flattered if someone had enjoyed a card from me so much that they’d turned it into a project of its own.
