 Morning-no posts for a week then two in two days.- and a Christmas one to boot lol.

I made my fave(at the moment)diamond point shaped card and P.papers from The Works.

The image was a freebie one  7yrs ago from HERE. Coloured with promarkers and added glossy accents and TH distress glitter I found from a couple of years ago,the sentiment was computer generated in Dafont.
