Oh a wonderful wonderful winter scene, labels one is still my favourite nestie, "there is no such thing at too much glamour dust" (which is now in the Oxford book of quotes...nearly) I can just imagine how sparkly it would be especially under a halogen light and that birdie SU punch is to die for (groan)... you know it would make a great birthday card ;-)
lots of love

P.S. I like you winter trees card, it's lovely!
