I am working on a Christmas card idea which is similar to the design of a card on the new Pedlars site and which I did a version of as a leaving card for my students in June  - not with Christmassy references though. Below is the text I will be using and I will wait a couple of days for some more suggestions / substitutions from family readers. The cards will cost next to nothing to make and we can personalise the inside too. I think I will donate food and treats to the Dogs' Trust In Evesham with the savings :)
