All Wrapped Up!

Good afternoon

Hope you are all having a good week.  Only 3 more sleeps and then I am off to Ally Pally with Marianne and Lynsey :-)  What can be better than craft shopping and meeting up with friends ... oh I can't wait!

I have been busy the last few weeks with DT work but last night I found time to make a non-DT card and came up with this Christmas card using one of my favourite LOTV stamps.
