What a fun Christmas card and matching tag. That Santa is so sweet and you colored him wonderfully of course. Can't wait to see more of your Christmas cards as your cards always inspire me Nic. Hope your Birthday lunch is fun and make sure and show us pictures of the lad looking spiffy in his uniform! My daughters never had uniforms - wish they had as it would have saved me a fortune as my girls are addicted to clothes for some reason. Hugz!
