This is a wonderful Christmas card Kathie! Love this Elf Toodle, especially with these perfect matching papers. Did you make that coiled stocking hanging there? You always have super creative element on your cards that make them stand out. Love this and hope you have a terrific week. Loved reading about the Hobbit premiere there.
