I would be totally lost without Amazon, it's kept my retails habits going all through Covid. Sensible to start C shopping early because just as predicted some things are difficult to track down.

A very effective design for your Christmas card.

Beautiful Christmas card design. And, I do Amazon shopping as well as I am disabled and cannot walk much. So soon I will have to get on that list too. I only shop for the grandchildren now and the rest get cash.

Lynne in NI said...

What a very clever design to use up your Christmas scraps, I love it!
Very envious that you've started your Christmas shopping, I haven't even a single idea what I need to buy!

Gail said...

Great use of snippets!
I haven't even thought abut Christmas cards....or shopping!
Good for you!
If we have a gathering we usually have a gift exchange. So only need one gift!
Haven't had too many of those(gatherings) the last year and a half!

Oh boy! You do have a great start on Christmas! Really like the layout of you card! Great way to use all those lovely papers. I have to admit that I have all my Christmas cards finished. First time ever that I had them all made by September. LOL. Guess I didn't feel like doing other things, but love to make cards.
