  1. I really like your Christmas card. You are going to be way ahead of the game when it comes to Christmas card sending!! Can't wait to see what you do with your new tool I was looking at those, Is it worth getting? I always love new tools. How many cards did you make with it of the same stamp?
    Have a blessed day
