Winter Snow

This is one of the new Framin' Christmas cards from La Pashe called "Winter Snow"

Very, very simple to make up as all the pieces are die cut and also, unlike the previous large Framin' Cards, these are small ones measuring approx 7" x 5 3/4".
I'll try and get round to posting a couple more later today as I'm still trying to catch up with everything after my manic weekend away in London.
Have a nice day xx

The theme is Dots chosen by Jak, and by the time I'd finished making this card I definitely had spots before my eyes!! lol

You can purchase Daisy from here but if you would like the chance to win a free digi image of Daisy all you have to do is leave me a comment and tomorrow I will pick the winner so watch this space.
I've also entered Daisy in the Simon Says Challenge.
