Just gorgeous Sandra! Love the pinks (but of course!) and it's such a pretty card. So cute the way the teddy's ears poke out of his Santa hat :) Brilliant colouring too.

Mrs A will be lurking in the bushes by the gate checking next week I suspect - when do we tell her about the secret tunnel you dug under the fence then?

Have a super day with Tayla :)
