From the Heart

It is with sadness I say goodbye to a great man.  Justice Antonin Scalia.   May you rest in peace Sir and I know you will be remember and loved for years and years to come.



It is time for another card for the Christmas Card Club.  The theme was chosen by Kate.  It seems as if she has a thing for icicles - they are pretty aren't they!?!


I love this Santa -- he is definitely sweet and charming.   A right jolly old elf if I say so myself.

Thank you for visiting and as always your comments are appreciated. Sandy

I'm shivering looking at those icicles. They look so real. That is a great Santa image and he's lucky to be indoors working on his list. The candy cane stripe is perfect framing for the peek-in-the-window scene. I wish I could talk myself into getting Christmas cards started this early.
