Such a sweet image Sandra - and I love the background of snippety strips - some of those papers are familiar to me. And good to get a head start on Christmas cards as well!

Great use of those pesky Strips. I tried to use as many as I could to decorate last years christmas card envelopes but when I looked in the box the other day they were nearly at the top and spilling out again! Hugs Mrs A.

Your card is fabulous. Love the use of snippets for the background.
I often use that same design style for the birthday cards I make for charity. It is a great way to use up the slim leftovers!

Thanks for taking part in the January Rudolph days Challenge.
