I chose to use two images this time,  Snowball Sarah and Poinsettia Globe. Fabulicious!

So I tried my hand at a little digital merging for this one. I used Serif to pop Sarah into the Globe and to insert one of the sentiments from the Christmas Hugs Sentiment Set into the plaque on the front. Luuurve digis!! J
