Thanks for that. There don't seem so many of us on the list this year.

Hi Libby

Yes your right, numbers are down slightly this year, however I have had quite a few pm's from people who have decided to give money to Charity this year instead of buying cards, which is also lovely.:) We do this in work now, and dont send cards anymore and I think this is getting more popular and the reason why numbers are down:)

I do love the Dis Christmas card exchange however and look forward to getting all my lovely cards.:goodvibes

I'm sorry that I've stopped thanking everyone individually but we're rather upside down at the moment as DH is just finishing off decoration the living room (our only reception room as it's the dining room too).

I have loved getting all of your cards a big thank you to every one.

P.S. I must admit the novelty of opening a card to be covered in sequins is beginning to lose it appeal!;)
