Debbie said...

Very sweet Vicky. I have not seen this image. I know LOTV brought out new stamps, but I am not able to buy them 'till I go to Harrogate in September.
This is so nice. I am making a few Christmas cards lately, It was a bit early for me in July really, but I did a few and quite liked it. I have just booked a stall in November for a Christmas Fair, so I will need cards for that. Debbiexx
