Such a lovely traditional Christmas card, Val. I love that you turned your little Vermillon into a robin. Fabulous embossing, too. Although I love to make my cards in good time, the thoughts of Christmas is making me feel a bit depressed, especially when we haven't had a taste of summer, yet. It's raining so hard here right now.....when is it going to stop? I'm logging to be able to sit out in the garden xx
