Ornate Holly Framed Noel

Afternoon folks.  The sun was out this morning but it was a very cold wind.  The sun has now disappeared and it looks like rain.  It was forecast so I suppose I mustn't complain.

I have forced myself to make a card as if I don't, I don't think I will ever go back to it.  Crafting has always got me through things in the past.  I am not sure it will this time though.

My 6 x 6 Christmas Card
