  15. Love your kraft and red colour combo with this sweetly coloured Tilda and the lovely poinsettia flower. I suspect you are not supposed to enlarge Tilda even though you own the stamp so do make sure you haven't saved the scanned image. It's great to see you playing along with the CASSettes at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'.
    Hugs, Lesley
