We all hope each day is going to be filled with good news. For most of my friends back in the West, the best news they might be waiting for right now is that tomorrow won't be over 99 degrees again.
If you're stuck indoors in a heat wave, you might be making all your Christmas cards way ahead of time, like I am. I just got my Christmas supplies from the new holiday catalog that is coming out next month, and looking at all the stamp sets has started to put me in the holiday mood already. This year I'm starting out with something from the Current Annual Catalog in addition to one of the new sets so you can add it to your wish list.
This card features some of our old plaid paper that I love, the Tidings & Trimmings Bundle from the Annual Catalog, and the little hamster peeking out is from the new set.
So even though it's still 162 day till Christmas, I'm wishing you "Tidings of Joy".
