Norah McPhee said...

Hi Sandra,
Your card is what christmas used to look like when people were more innocent and there just wasn't the badness going on in the world like you see every day now unfortunately. Sheena always seems to get the people just right in her designing of her stamps and your colouring off this little piece of delight just shows how realistic you can make an image stamped from a rubber stamp. Thank you Sandra for your tour of the Crafters companion world as each and every member of the team has taken us on a different journey to see beauty and stunning ideas.
crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)
