A card rain is gonna fall
Heyheyhey! It's nearly Christmas! It's all been a bit weird and a bit crazy this year, with the moving house and jobs and having the flu and everything, and I've been terribly bad at sending cards (let alone presents), so to make up for that you have a choice of TWO yes TWO LiveJournal Christmas cards this year:

Now I'm going to go and finish wrapping my presents* before I go to bed. Hope you all have (or are already having, depending on when you read this and/or your local timezone) a great Christmas, or winter festival of your choice, or just a relaxing day without requiring any excuse to do things you enjoy. (That should cover all bases, but if it doesn't, please assume I wished you well in whatever words you prefer. :-)

* That is, presents for other people, from me. We have many weird Christmas customs here in the McKnightery, but wrapping the Christmas presents intended as gifts for ourselves isn't one of them. (Pathological re-dis-unambiguation of the unambiguous isn't a Christmas custom, we do it all year round!)

r those liek ur actual chrissie deccies n stuff? cuz thr rly k3wl if so.

Um, I think midnight mass in random local church with abysmal choir and subsequent singing-heart-out-related sore throat has also broken my brain. Sorry. Happy Christmas, lovely, and may the new year be joyous and filled with delight.

They are all rly rl, y. 8-) Also no post-processing (except the text!), just a piece of pink cellophane.

I may post some more Christmas-decoration pictures, but I need to work out how to upload gazillions of things to flickr or pickle or LJ rather than filling up my webspace on chiark (I am already Disk Hog Number 1).

I hope your Christmas got better, and you managed to spend NYE with nice people. (Am catching up with LJ but, good grief, people have posted a lot... so apologies if I miss anything!)

(Rather unoriginally)

Hello m'dear! Just to say Happy Christmas, and that I thought your card was lovely! Am in Oxford over the next couple of days (29th - 3rd)- are you around at all then. Be great to meet up!!

I've been crap with cards too....

Re: (Rather unoriginally)

VERY belatedly, for which I'm sorry: yes, am in Oxford, and it would be lovely to meet up tomorrow/Weds if you are still around/free then. And I will txt this to your mobile phone as well in case you're not online from wherever you're staying at the moment. 8-)

I shouldn't have an opinion since I don't celebrate Christmas, but these please me more than a real paper Christmas card in the post would. Thank you, and happy Christmas to you.

Ver' nice. Have you had mine?

PS what graphics editor did you use? I used gimp, which is a bit over-heavy on the features so I couldn't find simple ones like moving the text about - hence the slight wonkiness!

Pretty! Thank you. :) I used Photoshop (a not-quite-legit copy thereof, ahem) but only to resize the pics and add the text -- the light/blur/etc is all just as it came out (the really blurry one was taken through a piece of pink cellophane).
