Card of the Week: Snowdrops

It is the time for snowdrops, though the Polar Bear still isn’t flowering. I only ever seem to make snowdrop cards at this time of year, despite the fact that, obviously, I still have the stamps the rest of the year.

The snowflake stamps came from the sensibly-named Glittering Snowflakes… Continue reading Card of the Week: Let It Snow
