Through the Eyes of a Child

Through the eyes of a child 
one sees the true spirit of Christmas.
 "Santa!"



This time I wanted to share something classical.
The love and innocence of a child,
excited through and through...
 in the arms of someone super special
with a knowing glint in his eye.
This is a card that I made for a special friend about to enjoy his first christmas with his first grandchild.
The stamp is one of my favourites from Crafty Individuals
 and the writing one is from Kaszazz.
The inks are distress and the black ink is archival.



Enjoy!
