My Little Tree

Good evening to all my friends and  followers. I want to also welcome Audrey my latest follower thank you for following my Blog and I hope you continue to enjoy my posts.

Tonight I'm posting a card with a LOTV Christmas stamp. This is a stamp I bought Christmas 2012 and didn't get round to  stamping it up. Well at long last I've finally got round to it. I decided on traditional colours and  a touch of black to  give it a slightly different look.

However I'm not giving up just yet.)
