Heartfelt Christmas Wishes


Christmas is finally here!  Hope you get to spend some time with you loved ones and enjoy yourselves this holiday season.  And not to get too stressed out...hee hee.

Here's a last Christmas card for the year.

I did a bit of Zentangle work creating the two ornaments hanging from a pine branch.  And this time I decided to add some colours to it instead of leaving it black and white. 

Here's a closer look at the featured image.

This cutie is called Christmas Heart Tilda from the A Lovely Christmas Collection 2015 from Magnolia Stamps.  This stamp is available from Magnolia-licious, HERE.
