Christmas Cards for the Shelter

Stamping Christmas cards and sending them to family and friends is fun, but this year I had another idea in mind.  There is no doubt that I now have more stamping stuff than one person should have, especially with a huge stamping score at an estate sale for paper, and then a wonderful gift from …
