"There is no greater gift .."

Morning!! I wanted to share another Christmas card with you today. This one is special to me .. in April, we lost my grandma and going through her stuff, I found all the cards I had given her over the yrs. So, for this card, I actually took a couple cards that I made her and made them into one card. I love the colour scheme - non-traditional Christmas - but I love it.
