Snail mail Christmas and exciting news

Welcome back to my blog and to another cardtuesday.
I've noticed that tuedays work pretty good with showing you cards and fridays for other projects. Do you agree?

Penny Black Christmas snail card

So today I want to show you a Christmascard using a sweet Penny Black image. Let's be honest - it feels like Christmas is lightyears away, but each year it sneaks up on us cardmakers. Am I right or am I right? In my book you can never be too early for making Christmascards. Heck, I even start making them before the year has ended :D
