Heather said...

Hi Christine, hope you had a great Christmas and wish you lots of love, joy and laughter for 2010. Think I'm safely back in blogland now - pheew!!
Love your card - I did wonder if we would choose the same image, was going to check but thought no - if we do, we'll do them differently anyway. Love the colours and papers and it does look great with the raised border. 'Wish I was there' - lol. Minus 15 here today - didn't bother going out lol.
hugs Heather xx
