Your Santa card is superb! Love all the lovely snowflake embellies.

Sorry I have not been around at card club. It is all I can do to keep my challenge running right now. Just seem beseiged with poor health which keeps delaying my knee replacement.

Thanks for taking part in the March Rudolph Days Challenge.
