    Default make a sentence with word "figure"

    I know it is too early to send Christmas greetings; however, I figured since I am sending you a cheque it might be a good idea for me to send you a Christmas card.

    I would use commas:

    ...I figured, since I am sending you a cheque, it might be a good idea...
