xmas cards not featuring scenes from wwII

Everyone says I'm such a curmudgeon. Fine. You say curmudgeon, I say devilishly handsome action figure who happens to hate xmas. It's pretty much the same thing. And yet every year I make our family xmas cards. And they never feature burning ships at sea or some frozen pile of elf skulls.

The above image is for our main card. But I made the one below for those people (read: old people) who wouldn't know what hipsters (read: kids named Graeme and Hudson) were.

And Merry Xmas!


  1. Absolutely the same thing! Curmudgeon was meant as a term of endearment . . . . I read somewhere 'they are just as sensitive and soft-hearted as the next guy, but they hide their vulnerability beneath a crust of misanthropy' . . . . hmmm!

    BTW The Bolton award for most original Christmas card goes to you - I reckon you will hold that title for many years :)

  2. Love both Christmas card designs

    Slightly concerned am turning into old hipster cos bought myself single-gear cruiser for Christmas. But pretty sure it's only cos I'm too lazy to find the right gear on my gazillion-gear bike

    Have a fab Christmas.

  3. Sweet xmas cards. So much more fun than mine. Of course my family are all oldsters and do not get the funny cynic in me.In spite of your hating the day..have a good one.

  4. The cards are great. Happy Christmas and an action packed new year to the three of you.

  5. i had a no gear bike-i name everything so she was called pip.i upgraded thru the generosity of someone who didnt get where HE wanted to get but now i'm gettin around in glory-6 sp cruiser that looks like one of those old fashioned bikes-her name is beebee(big bum bikin bitch!!)
    i'd buy your cards....then maybe i'd send them.!!!
    merry season

  6. stopping by to wish you and your loved ones a happy new year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
