Dare I show it?

Hmmmm, rather a silly title for a post, because obviously if I didn't dare I wouldn't be posting now would I? The thing is I have started on my Christmas projects (ouch, - it is only August....) but the other thing is, I have a little time now still and there is so much coming up, so here goes: A couple of cards and the start of yet another commissioned mini book....  The papers I am using are Graphics 45 Christmas Emporium and Bo Bunny Noel

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
