Hi Chris! This is just beautiful, and I really wish I could play along at ODBD but my ODBD stamp collection is VERY limited and, unfortunately, no Christmas stamps. I will be back after the holidays when the themes change. I love playing along there, and look forward to it. Hope you can come by and play with us soon at WAW.
Have a blessed week!
