Winter Joy

Morning crafty friends......hope you're all well.
Up at the crack of dawn this morning, I was......I love this time of the year...the dark
 nights, the dark mornings......don't even mind the cold but probably the thing I enjoy 
most of all is the early morning peace and quiet in my house lol. Only thing I don't 
like is how hard it is to get a decent pic of anything I make! So for today I have another
Christmas card to share.....I still have a few to make but nowhere near as many as I 
first thought.......I was hoping to get them all done by the end of October but have a
sneaky feeling that's not gonna happen!
