The Halloween decorations are packed away and now begins the countdown to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. It's even a bit chillier this week; not so much frosty but chilly for sure. I have started to make some Christmas and winter themed cards for sending to family and friends. I love how that makes me get the "spirit". All of our children will be home for Christmas this year with just one of the seventeen grandchildren away. As they all get older it gets harder and harder so this year is pretty special indeed. Below are two cards I've completed this week. Enjoy.
