A Christmas View

Warmest greetings from Dublin. Just sharing my penultimate card for this year...

'Window' die, 'on the edge snow flurry' die and 'mini holly' die all by Tim Holtz / Sizzix. Focal image by Pion Design. All other papers by Maja Design. Stencilled little snowflakes by Memory Box. Sentiment Stamp by Cat's Life Press. Edges inked with DI 'Weathered Wood'. Plenty of my fave TH 'clear rock candy' glitter applied. Tinsel twine by TH Idea-ology. Bells, 'foliage' etc from stash.

Last card tomorrow... Hope everyone is winding down now so as to recharge for the main event!

As always, huge thanks for visiting.
