  9. Samantha - my tummy is rumbling now! I am very envious of your baking abilities - I love baking but generally avoid anything that involves dough - hopeless at it! Your card is gorgeous. The owl is super cute and beautifully coloured and your card design is lovely with those beautiful distressed layers. I hope you are enjoying a lovely festive break.

    Thank you for joining us at the Animal Friends and a hope to see you again.
