Great Impressions Stamps –Oh Christmas Tree!

Hello!  Happy Monday!  I have a new Christmas card using Great Impressions Stamps to share with you. 

There are only 92 days left until Christmas!   I know it is only September but when I think of how cards I need to make, I get a little sense of panic.    Does any one else feel like that?  At least I am one closer to being finished.
