Hi Debbie,
Hope you're keeping well. I'm not such a big fan of bears, but this one's really cute; LOTV makes the cutest bears! Beautiful colouring and composition as always.

Julye said...

Love your card and cute wee James making snow angels, I actually thought at first that your card was a bauble shape until I realised it was just clever tag placement. Can I ask when you make such an ornate card especially with a border that extends over the sides of the card how do you post it , do you have to make a box or do they fit in an envelope? Its really beautiful and would love to know how you would get it to the recipient unscathed.

Bev Chapman said...

I love this one. Snow angels are my favorite winter sport. Love the colors too.
