Christmas at Fab'n'Funky

Hello everyone,
It's the last Wednesday of the month and that means we are doing Christmas creations at

Fab'n'Funky Challenge

I chose to colour and paper piece a delightful image from Mo's Digital Pencil
 called Carrying the Wood.   A simple design and one of my favourites.
 Bonus being it's not too bulky to mail.  Design paper is Graphic 45 that I've been
hoarding for a few years. Framed in black..again a favourite.
