We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.  Though we don’t yet have a fulfillment date, all backorders for Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper, Festive Farmhouse Elements, and Santa’s Workshop Enamel Elements will be filled as soon as possible. 

**NOTE: My order of the Santa's Workshop Enamel Elements for my October VIP Customers is currently on backorder.  As soon as I receive them, I will mail them out right away.  

There is some good news...In order to provide another holiday-themed option, we are making our promotional Dashing Along Designer Series Paper (item 149903) available for sale at $11.00.
