Gorgeous card Sandra! The decoupage and design paper you used gives your snowman so much dimension and detail. I haven't been on the DT long but I really love your cards and your wonderful comments. Hope you enjoy the quiet though :)

Hi Sandra, you've been making gorgeous Christmas cards of late - I've just scrolled back to see them all. Love the snowman on this one. I'm sure you will enjoy having more time to 'play' now that you've resigned from the DT team. xx
