The other option for your Christmas cards this season is to recycle and use old ones that have not previously been used - there are a staggering number of these about and the ones in these photographs came from a car boot a couple of years ago.
Here is the procedure: light a crackling good fire and throw on some pine cones for extra effect...wait until dusk...the half light is good for candles and squinting....fill your delicious old pen with some Quink...scribe your cards until the candles burn low....fix old stamps to the envelopes and see if you can get away with it!!!
I like this set of photographs so added in extras...
Blue Peter featuring again I see....
More of my stamp albums another time....I loved collecting stamps as a child.
