Christmas Sampler

I have been inspired by a Christmas Sampler that I saw online from Ronda and Fiona in the Facebook group Creating for Christ. It was their November project. I fell in love with it and decided to have a go at creating my first sampler using the instructions they had posted online. I didn’t have […]
