    I prefer to send all my cards via email (I design them myself, so they do have a really nice personal touch), saving myself postage *and* saving a tree in the process. ;)

      Nice! We do design stuff too of course – but this saved us time and some of our friends still prefer a “paper” option. xx

        I know. And it´s still nice sometimes to get a “real” card that you can hold in your grubby mits. I recently had a friend insisting that she send me a paper card because she does scrapbooking and makes them herself, and when I got it in the post I was so happy that she sent it to me because it was *gorgeous*!

          Oh handmade cards are the best! I keep special ones in my “keepsake” box along with other sentimental stuff x
