  • Last minute card Making
    Are you one of those folks who like to leave things to the last minute?

    Sometimes I have been - when you get too busy until the day when you receive your 1st Christmas card. That is when it dawns on you, that you have forgotten to get your cards bought, signed, sealed and mailed.

    We have the solution for you. Why not hand make your own cards this year? You will take home at least 10 cards - handmade by YOU.
