This is my last card post for 2014. Thank-you all for your visits, comments, friendship and encouragement over the past year - I wouldn't be in blogland without all your kind wishes and inspiration. May you and yours have a very happy and peaceful Christmas and all that you wish for in 2015.

  9. Dear Nicola
    This is magical! Gorgeous colours and wonderful details.
    The clock is quickly ticking and midnight will soon be here. I am so glad I managed to squeeze in this blog visit before 2015.
    Nicola, thank you for your friendship and support this past year. Here's to 2015 being a year which is kind to you and I cannot wait to view your beautiful artwork throughout the months of 2015.

  10. Hello Nicola
    Happy New Year to you! What a gorgeous card this is! Every inch of it. I did not realize you lived in Dublin, Ireland. My mother's family came from Crohane, Ireland (Ford) and came to the United States during the potato famine. Thank you for your continued support on my blog. It means so much to me.

  11. Such a delicious card... The musical angels are adorable, and the frosty layers frame them to perfection. A delight! Belated thanks for playing along at Country View ?Challenges, and Happy New Year (yes, that's how far behind I am!).
