I love this image as all of the images you use Vicky. The snowflake and burlap string is soooo cool with the button. What a neat idea for your stickles. We do shake them alot huh!

P.S. The sketch I used for the cards I made yesterday was inspired by the slideshow at the bottom of your blog. It says Best wishes in an oval sentiment, but I can't find your post for it. ugh...
