This is possibly my last post before Christmas....but today is my last day at work until the New Year, so maybe I'll find time to make a few cards now. I do hope so. I'm really looking forward to having some time off from everything and then taking a bit of time out to do some crafting too. Bliss!

This is lovely. I like how the paper behind the image makes the images appear as if it's popping off the page. Great coloring and embellies! Thanks for joining us at TCC this week.
