Oooh, how brilliant the SU papers are against the pretty gingham - love the subtle hint of embossing there - nicely done. The owl is too cute and I love how you make the snowflakes an added adventure with those cute little buttons. You're so clever Donna! Oooh, nice to snuggle up and get warm on a cold day. It's 63 degrees this morning and I know nothing compared to where you are but brrrrrrrrr, I'm FREEZING! :D
