Sometimes I make a card that I truly just love and this one of my slimline winter scene Christmas cards is a winner, I think! I just love the falling snow, the trees in the background and the way that lamp offers what feels like a warm glow. Isn’t this just PERFECT to send to those people for whom you have a lot of holiday news to share?
