Holiday Card Picks : Roundup #2

It’s just about time to wrap up my holiday card picks for the season. *sadface* The time goes by so quickly every year, and I always, always want to feature more cards because there are just so many awesome designs out there. Alas, mid-December and holiday shipping deadlines have a habit of sneaking up on me, and I must stop.

But I still have this roundup of awesome holiday card designs to share with you today, and I’ll be back next week with some fantastic cards for the New Year, too!
