Little Santa Claws And Falalalala


I hope you are all keeping well ?, Harrison I'm pleased to report is loving his new school (thank goodness) and is thriving so well and in some subjects he isn't keen on either (Art, Music, Drama and French) 😄.

The cards today are for Rudolph Days Challenge, that starts today and ends on 31st October and as we only only have this and next month left to enter the Challenge, this month would be a good idea to start making those Christmas cards, if you haven't done already.

I've coloured this little cutie to match my adorable little girl 'Clio' and even Alan was impressed.
