Hi Vicky. Thanks for commenting on my cards on docrafts and my blog. I`m doing better thanks...still tearful at times but Poppy always seems to do something funny when I start thinking of Mistletoe and end up giggling through the tears...she`s been a god send and is helping me get through the loss of Mistle...Enough to be in the mood to make some cards again anyway...Always go straight to your blog when I get on the computer to check out your lastest creation... even my husband`s started asking "whats vixx made tonight then",lol.I Looooove the dark evenings unlike you. Autumn and Winter are my fav seasons... love the crisp cold air and the colour`s that autumn brings to the trees and Winter means snuggles in front of the fire,Hot chocolate,good old fashion movies on the tele,christmas just round the corner....etc,etc,, best of all, a good excuse to stay in the warmth and craft all day long ;) (Really need to start making some Christmas cards!!! )Bye 4 now. Alison xxxx

This is a beautiful card, Vicky!! :) I really love the gorgeous papers you've used!! And the colours with just that hint of red and layout are gorgeous!! :)
I agree about the miserable gloom- I had to put lights on an hour ago and now it's pouring down, too!! :(
And as for the stamps- I've not even had chance to ink up all the Sugar Nellies and LOTVs I got last week yet but I still keep thinking about the new realeases coming...!!! :D
hugs, Rachel x
