Chrissy, your vintage Christmas card is spectacular. I think besides the wonderful coloring and layout, my favorite element is the sign post. That looks amazing. Your POTW almost seems to be the feminine counterpart to your card..a beautiful combination together. :)
hugs to you ,

Chrissy, your card is just gorgeous! I love the old world feel to it. I think you are a master of the pencil. :O) I always love seeing how you use them to shade and just make your cards come to life. I hope you are having a great week. We are getting our house ready for guests for the M&Ms' Birthday partys today. I can't believe my babies are 15 & 14. They are really getting to be very good young adults and I really proud of them. Hugs, Lisa
