Soon . . .

Guess what . . . I've been spending lots of time in my studio listening to Christmas carols and making cards!! Such a fun way to pass the time this time of year! What'cha think?
Brown and aqua . . . such a yummy color combination!! One of my faves!! I used Mo Manning's "Soon" digi image! I can just imagine what this little guy is feeling . . . and shiny new red sled and no snow to "try it out"! Been there . . . done that!! You can find this adorable image HERE in Mo's online store!

Here's a close-up . . .

And a side view . . .
