'A Time of Giving'

Ok so I know its like ages until Christmas, but if its anything like last year I need extra makes. I had all my cards made that I needed & got them posted, had a few extra for the just in case. Well I needed a just in case one, but they had all gone poof!! Gone, vanished, disappeared, no where to be seen....the girls had decided they needed cards for their friends & asked Nige about them. His reply was 'well she posted a load the other day, so I don't think she needs them ones'  mmmm men!!! So this year I am determined to make enough for everyone lol!

Anyhoos I am here to share with you my sketch creation for Try Stampin' on Tuesday. You will find the sketch here, or at the end of my post.
