Christmas and a Giveaway!

Today I'm sharing 3 holiday cards- the first one is for this month's sketch challenge at the Craft's Meow:

....and the next are inspired by Kristina Werner's Holiday Card Series, days 11 and 12 (I'm working up to 25! Pretty much halfway there....)

...And now for the giveaway!

Do you remember when I was guest blogging at Ella Publishing? Well, they were so kind to offer a chance for one of my readers to win a free eBook! The fabulous book is 31 Thank You Cards.
