Thank you all so much for your kind comments regarding my daughter.
Thankfully she is now back at home to continue with her recovery. She is still very poorly, she won't be going back to college for a while and needs a lot of support at the moment so I may not be have time to visit your blogs for now.

Luckily I made this card some time ago ready for the new

This time the theme is
Christmas Critters

The prize for the winner is 2 Individual Digi images

I have used the adorable Igloo Bears digital stamp. The card shape has been made with a Go-Kreate die.

Items Used:
Coloured with Promarkers
Go-Kreate Frilly Frame #1
Hero Arts Snowflakes bu Lia Stamp Set

Thank you all so much for taking the time to stop and look at my card today. Your continued support and encouragement means so much to me.

Bye for now
