Loving this gorgeous Christmas card Debs... fabbie image and design!

Btw... I'd love to know where you get your box frames that you use on the Etsy store... I've been trying to get hold of some good ones at a reasonable price... thought I had some recently at one of the cheap shops... but turned out a bit rubbishy.... ah well..
