Gorgeous Sue! You've made this wonderful image into a beautiful Christmas car. Aren't these images fun? Was very torn between this and the one I ended up with!
Have a lovely weekend

Oh its so fun Sue, all the pretty coloured homes look sweet, a slight touch of it..
Didn't know they were to strike for the whole of December, best ask my lovely postie, Ian, he will hopefully give me the 'gen', told him they should do a go slow but looks like a stike is on the cards...xxxxx

Your card is fabulous Aunty Sue, I love all the bright, festive colours. The large snowflake swag along the top of the card is awesome and I like all the addition snowflakes you embossed as well. Fabulous!
