Christmas

Hello to you all. I know some people don't want to hear the C word, but I promised myself I would do as I done last year, and make Christmas cards throughout the year...It made a difference last year I had no last minute panic...So my card is using a "Stamp Addicts" stamp coloured with inks done a bit of masking to achieve the moon and sleigh then added some glitter to the roof tops ,the paper is from Nitwits. I hope you like it.xxx
