you warm my ♡



So, I'm kind of shocked that Thanksgiving is less than a week away.  Where has the time gone?  In true form, I'm freaking out that I don't have very many holiday cards in my stash.  Every year I tell myself to join in more of the holiday card challenges, next year, for sure (wink).  I'm about 70 cards short of what I'd like to have so I'm going to be working in multiples.

I'm getting ready to go have coffee with 2 of my dear friends.

Before I go, don't forget about the

These are wonderful! I love that chalkboard background and love both versions. You send out a lot of cards! I am a slacker in the Christmas Card department.....I only send to people who I only communicate with through Christmas Cards. It's a little sad.
