Happy December! I am sure there are a hundred things running through your mind this time of year. What presents do we get for special people in our lives, cookie baking, present wrapping, and yes sending out Christmas cards. I know in years past the sending of cards has been at the bottom of my list for many reasons-postage is pricey, the time it takes and people don’t appreciate the homemade cards, or even the time it takes to make them. I am here to tell you this is the one thing you should not skip out on. Cards mean so much to people and let them know you care. Everyone loves to get mail, and even better to open it and see a beautifully made card. It is a time to send a little note or even a long letter telling friends, family, and even those in your life that have made a difference. I recently watched a Hallmark movie that spoke to just that. It just reiterated how important it it to share memories, moments in time, love, and appreciation. I hope you send out many cards this year to those that have impacted your life. If you are stumped for some designs, I have included a few I recently made using the Natures Beauty Stamp Set. This is the set that gives back donating $3 to Mental health awareness.

Have a Merry Christmas and get those cards in the Mail!
