love the idea, but with my lack of work right now it is taking me all year just to save to send them out at Christmas.
What about emails to send them out on line in July as an option? There are many amazing ecard sites that are free.

That's always a thought. We'll nail down the details properly if enough interest is shown. At the moment, I'm really just trying to see if it's something that people would like to get involved in

I love the idea but Christmas cards might be a little hard to find during that time of year to purchase. They might be found online for purchase but the prices might be a little higher? Not sure.

As Christmasstar mentioned about sending ecards would probably be a good idea or if some do not want to give out their email address we could post greeting on our profiles? That might not be as fun but just a suggestion.

I do love the idea of mailing them out though! I do "Need a Little Christmas" in July! It would be great to have some type of Christmas activity in July.

I think it is a great idea as well. But like CAH said, it might be a bit hard to find Christmas cards then. Maybe a year round Christmas store might have them.
