However, I thought perhaps some of my market shoppers may have friends who reside in the Northern Hemisphere and who will need wintry looking cards for Christmas. There you are, that’s my reasoning for just wanting to make some wintry Christmas cards. So, I made two cards which were supposed to be the same however, they ended up a bit different.
