Hi, have you started your Christmas cards for 2021 yet? It’s still a bit early for me – I prefer Christmas and winter crafting when it’s a little chillier outside, but I felt like colouring a gnome.  The Gnome for the Holidays stamp set was the first I saw when I flipped through my Trinity Stamps box of stamps and dies.  My last few cards have been with bright vibrant colours so I went with soft subdued shades for today’s … Read More
