Here's my design for this year's Christmas card, though I won't be it getting made up as a printed item this time.
Last year I did my 12 pubs of Christmas and, because I got them printed, I think people didn't realise that I'd made them myself, as in past years I had been more active with the glitter or the sewing machine.
This year each letter here is from a brand name on a ghost sign in London.
Let me know if you recognise any of them.
Joy to the World and all that!
I think I can do all of them (although I'm only 60% on the 'A') but won't spoil it for other readers...ReplyDelete
That's a cop out! I've saved all your previous years cards (I always do with handmade ones)ReplyDelete
Bah humbug xx
Thanks, Jane, and a Merry Christmas to you and yours.ReplyDelete
That's lovely, and I actually recognise some of them!ReplyDelete
That's nice, but I'm struggling. Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.ReplyDelete
Fang koo ver muck. Have a great trip.xReplyDelete
Like Sam, I think I can recognise them all, although in my case it's with the "C" I have a slight doubt. Lovely card. Have a Merry Christmas!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the comments everyone.ReplyDelete
Joy to the world.
Ding dong merrily

Cool card! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Jules xReplyDelete
Did one of my own, see it here.ReplyDelete
As to the signs, I'm thinking:
C - Courage, Redcross Street, SE1
H - Hovis, Camden Passage, N1
R - Redferns, Lambourn Road, SW4
I - Haig, Milkwell Yard, SE5
S - Sunlight Soap, Upper Clapton Road, E5
T - Picture Post, Stockwell Road, SW9
M - Brymay, Lillie Road, SW9
A - (I think) Dundee Marmalade, Notting Hill Gate, W11
S - Boots, Camden High Street, NW1
Well done Sam... 9 out of 9.ReplyDelete
Mind you, I'd have been rather amazed if you hadn't been able to identify them!
Your version is great. It looks more 'cardy'. Plus you have the whole UK archive to sift through.
Let's talk soon... I am back in London now.
