Loving Christmas Wishes, CCAYR, Mid-Month Reminder!

Good Evening to you all, I hope everyone is well and still enjoying the wonderful weather.  For those who are not feeling too well, sending you Hugs.

Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last card.

I met up with a friend for a wee spot of lunch at our Highland Hospice Cafe, Linda works near there and it is easier than coming into the town for her, and it's a lovely little cafe,with lovely food and very, very reasonably priced.  Linda's son is getting married on Saturday, so we are all hoping for a gorgeous sunny day. Alistair and I are going to the evening reception, and just like corporation buses, another invite comes along to our friend Dougie's 6oth party.  Somehow, we will manage both and pop into Dougie's at the backend of the night.

Anyway, today's card is for the mid-month reminder for CCAYR Challenge,  All About Santa;, which can be about, reindeer, elves, sleighs, anything to do with Santa.
Gosh it's not the best of photo's is it?

See you all soon

I always admire folk who get in some Christmas cards during the year instead like myself having the mad panic just before the holidays. Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a Santa.
Enjoy your crafting, hugs Erika.
