Morning, Nic! TBH, I was wondering what the heck you were gonna share with us with your blog title this morning and then realised that you've used scented paper! Scratch and sniff, that takes me back to my childhood!
I love monochrome cards for Christmas, they always look so classy! I need to get a move on with my Xmas makes, but I've still got 74 days yet!?! Hugs, Lisa x
