  1. Hi Claire. I'm sorry Jacob has been so under the weather. I'm glad things are now improving for him, he needs to be 100% for Santa!!!
    I've just been having a catch up with all your wonderful cards. This purple angel is gorgeous and I'm so envious of your handwritten greeting, I so wish I could do that.
    Hope you are having a lovely weekend.
