  5. Morning Julia, oh such a beautiful give away card today, I really like it as will everyone, so you will have a difficult time picking a winner today.

    I am gutted that live too far away for the workshops, would love to have made these 4 cards, will just have to try and work out how you did them. I purchase the snow scene stamp but have not used it yet so you have inspired me to get it out of it's box and have a play.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
