Winter Kisses- PTU





I've used an FTU artwork of Zindy S. D. Nielsen. You can get it here and more HERE.
If you do not have a Zindy license then please be sure to read how you properly copyright it.
This is a PTU kit called Winter Kisses by Cora’s Creations (Pimp'd Designz). You can visit her blog for links HERE.
I've used Template #98 by Divine Intentionz. It can be downloaded HERE.
The mask is by Vixen, #389 and Christmas Mask6. Download it on her blog HERE.
Font used is Thickhead.
