I hope you are all cracking on with your festive preparations.  Shame on me, but this year I have also bought cards to send, knew it would be impossible to make all my cards.  Still, I cannot believe it will be December any day now!

    Wonderful stamped background ,dear Lynne, and love your torn panel, with the beautiful tree, with little golden accents, not easy to see, but I can imagine it looks gorgeous.Also the snowy weather, in background, and on the tree, is so beautiful, -and smiling of your colorful fabric scraps, —you are getting braver all the time— with the lovely glitter, and the most important word- Peace- .

    Lynne this is so beautiful. I love the subtle effect of the Old Gold and the Gesso and i really love the way that the book text shows through. Gorgeous ‘pop’ of red with the fabric – and – oh, just the right amount of glitz too! The perfect Christmas wish too! If only we could gift the World peace this year. xx
