Now that we have entered the last month of the year & Christmas is fast approaching I’ve started to think about sending Christmas cards. Although I’m spoilt for choice for something to write with I usually just pick up something from the nearest desk tidy but have decided to break with tradition this year & give metallic pens & markers a whirl as they are rated as ideal for Christmas cards.
