Hubby's Christmas Card


Hubby's Christmas card always seems to be one of the last I make. I am glad it was as I bought a few more LOTV stamps when they recently had a 20% off sale, well it would have been rude not to I thought. I have fallen in love with these cute animals and knew he would appreciate the image. He likes the vintage style too and I wanted to make a card which wasn't girly. It's an 8x8 card so plenty of room for embellishments.
