Thinking of You...Christmas

Howdy Crafters - 
My Dear Friend Nance moved to Tenn four years ago - we visited this summer and had a grand time. I still miss her - she was my crafting buddy and we were employed together for 15 years.
This Thinking of You Christmas card is going to be sent to her. We are both Tim Horton coffee fans and we enjoyed that beverage almost daily while working together. Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week.
