Brilliant post and love the gorgeous creation.
I have a new blog due to google plus playing a game or two on my old one and I don't know how to change it all without losing my followers comments. If you have the time I would be honoured if you would follow me again.
Here is a link to my new one..  { aNNie}

Beautiful card Sandra. I really like the snow border. Gotta look for that one and get it. Think I'll head over to the challenge and submit a card as I've been getting into the Christmas spirit this week. It will be a bit tough for you this year, but my own experience leads me to believe it will be easier as time goes by. Hugs,
