Only 258 Shopping Days 'Til Christmas

I know it's spring but I was in the mood for a Christmas card so I compromised with myself. I made a Christmas card using spring-like colors. Well - okay maybe the little boots aren't exactly spring-like - but who can't like shiny red boots?!

A Jump on Christmas Shopping
