Nic this is so soft and beautiful. Just like a soft crisp night with new snow. I can see why it is your favorite stamp. Gosh I love your style. Wish I could emulate. Love your movie choices by the way. Those 2 movies are on my list too. Harry Potter is one of my favorites too. Magic and make-believe are two of my favorite places to be.
