    You must use a Christmas card as your background. AND then you can either move away from the Christmas theme or Make it all Christmasy. You decide.

    You can add other Christmas cards items, and other items to the background.

    I managed to find 2 cards with the same Australian design and used them to make my coins. They were so cute I couldn't resist keeping with the Christmas theme (the final picture is the Christmas card from which the rest are made).
    They went in the mail today.

    I accidentally clicked the "thanked this post" button on your post, Donnacr.

    I love your coins - they really are adorable! I'm in love with your baby kangaroo. Such an adorable Xmas card, too.

    Mostly Christmas-y

    My muse went limp trying to get away from Christmas so these are very Christmas-sy, but I think the sentiments are universal enough. Nothing wrong with Christmas spirit all year long!

    Awesome coins are being posted!
    Love that wombat, Donna, he's too cute! And those owls are darling, Betsyg! <3

    My envelope was returned to me because the post people won't accept one of the stamps... never had that before for sure!
    I'll get the coins ready again and send them your way ASAP, Heather!
    Hugs, Sarah

    My end - someone circled one of the two stamps I put on the envelope and wrote "ungültig" (invalid)... whatever that's meant to mean. I mean, they're stamps, they are like currency! ^^° Whatever... the new envelope is packed and going out tomorrow. Hope it gets to you in time! * fingers crossed*
    Hugs, Sarah
