Just writing my Christmas cards and using a fountain pen with purple ink. Do you have a preference in what you use to write your cards ? Do any of you send E Cards, I do ?

I use a pen that writes in gold can't remember the name of it offhand. No don't sent e cards but I have cut down quite a few this year.

Fountain pen and my customary black ink. Maybe a couple of festive emails overseas.

Black ink, very fine point.

Have not yet resorted to ecards, but it is a future possibility.

Am thinking of sending an email attachment with a small number of the year's photos to friends who would like to see these but live far away. Photos so much nicer than verbal, tedious descriptions ( have never sent long letters, only short, handwritten personal messages).

I use purple ink too! I love writing with a fountain pen and use one for my daily diary. For work though I continue to use a ball point - preferably black ink. I have sent the odd e card but prefer the usual kind; probably because it's 'traditional'

We only do ecards, but when I write anything I still only use black biro - the only thing we were able to use when I was working and the habit sticks even today.

Used a black ballpoint for mine as it was the first pen that came to hand. I'm not a they woman.

Whichever pen I can put my hand on. Pens in this house tend to wander off and hide themselves.
