This was such an easy card to put together with no colouring and usually that means I am not that pleased with it. However I love the way the elements all work so well together and I love that Santa so yes, I am very pleased with the overall result.

I am off to the osteopath this morning. Some days my back is better than others so I am hoping after a second visit it will start to feel a lot better.
