  1. Very nice! The light blue and red are beautiful together, and I love how you added the red pearls.I can't get any Xmas cards made, can't get in the mood.I pull out my Xmas stuff, stare at it for a while, sigh, and put it away. I've been doing that for about two weeks now. Meanwhile, you've been making some real beauties!
    (River had surgery on Friday and I forked out a big wad of cash for X-rays that showed nothing!! Frustrated I am!! Looks like swimming and physio in her future, so maybe we can take the girls to the lake again?)

  2. What a stunning Christmas card! I love the edge. So pretty!
